David Hupp, tenth child of Aaron and Margaret Anna (Redlingshafer) Hupp,
is buried in Lot. No. 48 (No. 41 under what appears to be the cemetery's
original lot numbering system) at Salem with his parents and five siblings.
David Hupp, was born April 28, 1876, and died February 9, 1947, at his
home in Benton township, Lucas county, following an illness which forced
his retirement from farming about two years ago and his confinement to
bed two months prior to his passing. All that medical skill and loving hands
coud do was done during his intense suffering, but he was kind and
patient, ever thoughtful and considerate of those who assisted in caring
To his large circle of acquaintances he was known as an industrious and
upright man, his death leaves a vacancy in his home and community from
which he will be greatly missed.
He was preceded in death by his parents, four brother and three sisters,
his sister, Susie, having passed away November 17, 1946.
He is survived by one brother, Otto, and three sisters, Lucinda,
Hannah and Sarah, and a number of nieces and nephews.
Funeral services in charge of the Miley funeral home were held

Rev. A.E. Beals, of Russell, and the Rev. W.A. Samp of (the)
Methodist church, officiated. Burial was made in Salem cemetery.
