Classification: Query
Surnames: Sikes/Sykes--Cupit families
My father Wesley Melton Sykes was born on January 13, 1922 in Richland Parish, Louisiana. His parents were Milton Sylvester Sykes from Crystal Springs, Mississippi and Mary Jane Cupit from either Woodhaven or Franklin, Mississippi.
My grandfathers parents were William C (Charlie?) Sykes/Sikes and Margaret Melissa Cupit. My granny's parents were William Richard Cupit and Julia Anne Rushing.
William Richard Cupit and Margaret Melissa Cupit were the children of Joseph Cupit and Rebekkah Byrd. William C(charlie?) was rumored to be from Tennessee and folklore has it that he won his last wife in a poker game at the ripe old age of ten. (I don't know if that's true or not)
