Sarah Jane Hupp, ninth child of Aaaron and Margaret Anna (Redlingshafer)
Hupp, is buried in Salem Cemetery Lot. No. 38 (Lot No. 17 under what apparently
was the cemetery's original numbering system) with three of her siblings.
Because 10 of 12 Hupp siblings did not marry, the original Hupp lot (Nos. 48/41)
filled and the longest-surviving children overflowed onto the south half of this
lot, originally owned by Maud Hopper.
