I have been researching the Kaps Family for about two and a half years. So far I am at a stand still with Adolph and John Kaps parents. Adolph who was my husband's grandfather told him when he was seven years old that Adolph had come over from Germany "as a little boy" but refused to tell him the name of the town in Germany he came from. When asked Adolph always said "you couldn't say it anyway". Adolph J. Kaps married Frances Mary Weaver on January 11 1905 in Elm Creek Nebraska they had ten children. They also had a family farm. Adolph's brother John married Mary Weaver (sister to Frances) they had four children. I hav brith dates and some death dates. I do have Frances and Adolph's death certificate, they were burried here in California. I would be happy to share any information I have. Let me know what you think.
