Rex - I am researching my Kappel family tree and recently learned that we have South Dakota ties. I was wondering if you are still researching your S. Dakota Kappel family and if there might be a connection.
My grandfather Fred Kappel was born to Andreas Kappel and Katherina Pfaff Kappel in 1893 in Nebraska. Andreas and Katherina were married in 1891 somewhere in South Dakota. The family ended up in Washington State. Thanks for any help you can provide. ~ Connie
