Coup and Buttermore Family of Germany and Pennsylvania, Mrs. Charles E Stanley, 1964
Translation by Mary Griest of Wooster, Ohio, Jan 6 1957. This letter was written to John Martin Kaupp (later spelling in America became Coup) by his mother in Germany after the death of his father. This was during the time Bismark was ruler of Germany. John had been one of his stable attendants and was given 500L to come to America.
(Translation was furnished by Roy Sinclair from the original German letter his mother has).
Weilheim, April 12, 1856 My dear son and brother:
In the earlier letters directed to you, we could give you each time the joyful news; that all, your parents and brothers and sisters are still living and all of us with the exception of your sister in Ofpingen, are in the best health.
This time this is not even the case. Your father for a year kept getting sicker and weaker; he had to fight various maladies, obstruction, watersuffering, which most frequently according to medicine are connected with great age.
His strength gradually vanished till the 8th of the month, he passed away; to me there was (a great beyond inside a great depth), where all cares, sufferings and complaints cease, and whither we must all follow sooner or later (be it a long or short time). On the 10th of this month he was buried in the country churchyard. In which many people from here as well as Boll and Hechingen participated in the funeral procession and paid their respect for him. He would have reached his 83rd year in autumn. The Lord presented him with eternal rest.
This death has befallen me, your mother, very severely; we had already had over 59 years of wedded life together. We had borne events with one another and now this union has been broken. Heaven has found it good to place me at my great age in another position. I still want to be contented with it and entrust (send) myself to God's care.
As far as His influence (power) still concerns us, thus we have after the father's lifetime given over to each of your brothers and sisters 100 Fl; which sum also laid aside for you. From my further possessions still another 50 will be kept (received). Your blessed father and I have often spoken with one another about your share and always enjoyed your desire about it, that you would like to present your inheritance to your brother Jacob, if you are not in need of the aforesaid money. He has a large family and lives in very thirsty (bad) conditions. If it is possible for you, then my and your blessed father's wish is fulfilled. In case you need and demand it, it will be sent over to you.
As far as it mildly concerns our condition, we are all well and healthy with the exception of your sister Marie, as said before she is very frail and useless for any work. The need and making of food (means of living) is the greatest part and in general has again vanished. Potatoes, the food stuff of the country, have again thrived (grown) better than the past year and the war has ceased. A blessed year is again in sight. Goodbye, my son and brother and answer us soon with a letter. Many greetings to you and your family from your longed for mother and your brother and sisters.
In the name of your brother and sisters
and your mother Florine.
