Johann Gratz headstone reads:
"unser unvergesslicher Gatte und vater/ Johan Gratz/ Geb. Dec 23, 1810/ zu Kapen Oesterreich/ Gest. Nov 25, 1879/ zu Stingtown, Cole County, Missouri"
Can anyone translate the village where he was born as we are looking for more information based on the above inscription? We believe he possibly emigrated from Austria.
Thank you in advance,
John B. Jacobs
