I am searching for information on him also. I am his great great granddaughter. Martin has son Herbert who had son Junior, who was my father. They ended up in Appleton, Wisconsin. Is there anything I can tell you? I've just started researching my family, so don't have a great deal of information at this point.

Re: Balthasar & Catharine Kapp family in Milwaukee's German newspapers

Surnames: Kapp Klapp
I think I recently posted elsewhere that there are at least three notices indexed from local German papers for this family ... and 2 Balthasars, and I think Catharine's maiden name is listed as Klapp?

They're collected in "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950).
