Surnames: Kapaun, Wabra, Janisch, Springer
I am looking for information on the Kapaun, Wabra, Janisch, and Springer families from Michelsdorf, Bohemia.

Upon immigration to the US (1865 ) the Kapaun family lived in Marcellon, Wisconsin. In the early 1900's two brothers, Joseph and Julius moved to Fargo, North Dakota. This Kapaun famiy still lives in the North Dakota area.

It is unknown to us if other members of the Janisch, Springer, or Wabra families came to America.

These families were living in the Michelsdorf area until at least 1869. This is the date of the last immigration from Michelsdort to Wisconsin that we know of. It is believed that the Kapaun family moved to Michelsdorf from Alsace-Lorraine about the time of the French Revolution.

Known information from Michelsdorf records:

Birth record for Joseph Kapaun b. 27 May 1851 in Michelsdorf (Ostrov CZ) house # 175.

His father was also named Joseph Kapaun who was the son of Georg Kapaun of house #175 and Rosalia Wabra of house #152 in Michelsdorf.

His mother was Rosalia Springer who was the daughter of Joseph Springer of house # 272 and Elizabeth Janisch who was the daughter of Wenzl Janisch of house #259.

Any information on these families or the area of Michelsdorf would be appreciated.
