I'M HONORED TO SPONSOR THIS MEMORIAL FOR MY DEAR GREAT GRANDPA WHOM I KNEW AND LOVED VERY MUCH!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Jacob was born into an Old Order Amish family but left the Order when he was shunned at the young age of seven years old. He never told anyone what happened. The story is a mystery to this day. He had an eighth grade education. His parents were Samuel E. Chupp and Mary J. Miller. According to the 1910 Reno city, Ninnescah township, Kansas census Jacob was a single white male 20 years old and a hired man (machinist in machine shop) at the home of a Luke and Charity Etherington. It also said he could read and write.

Jacob married Wanda Irene Toliver on September 12, 1912. They had five children:

Clarence Winfield
Virginia Fosten (Elliott Knoll Leatherman Miller)
Irene Wanda
Lloyd
Leland
Gladys Marie Chupp Cripe (b. 1926)

He only had an 8th grade education but was a genius inventing and designing machines to do his woodwork in his wood shop. In the 1920 Goshen city, Elkhart township, Indiana census, Jacob is listed with his wife, 1 son and 2 daughters. He was 30 years old, married, able to speak English, occupation: mechanic. He preceded his wife in death.
