Surnames: Kapp
"I am searching for Balthasar Kapp, Milwaukee, Wisconsin * 1826 in Germany, + 1895 in Fountain Prairie. He was married to Catherine * 1828 in Germany, + 1870 Milwaukee. Children: Martin, Eva, Gertrude, Catherine, Balthazar, Henry, Rosa, Christian and Emma Lilli. Can anyone help?"

Balthasar published a death notice in local German papers for his wife Catharine (did you misquote her death date?), and three years later for his son Christian Ernst Kapp (14 yr). There are also notices for a Balthasar Kapp several years later in these Milwaukee papers in 1895.
