My father, William Robert Kaps, was born in Holten, Kansas. I know his parents "came across" as little children. His mother was from PRUSSIA and his dad was from Germany but I don't have much information about them at that point. His father was John and his mother was a Schwartz. I don't know if he had a brother. Dad's father was buried in Holton, Kansas and I believe his mother was also. His father nor his mother ever learned to speak english. I would like to know more about the Kaps.
