Just interested to see if there's anyone on here related to the Kappel's from Chicago, Il. My grandfather, born in 1915, is William Kappel...he is married to Blanche (Smolk) Kappel.

Amy,
Francis Joseph Kappel, born 11/29/1860 is in my family tree, and was listed as a native of Chicago in 1912, when my Great Grandfather John Kappel died. (Francis Joseph was John's brother)They had a brother
whose name was William born in 1843, and died during the Civil War at Stones River, TN
12/31/1862...Many of the brothers named their sons after him (William) including my
grandfather James William, and my father Robert William....Perhaps your grandfather
was to.....do you know your great grandfather? Was it Francis Joseph Kappel?
(birth--11/29/1860) If so I have a wealth of information for you......

Sincerely, R. Keith Kappel

My Great-Grandparents were Karl Kappel and Katherine Schmidt Kappel. Grandpa Karl's brother moved to the Chicago area soon after they arrived in America. My Grandma is 94 years old next week and would love to hear from her father's relatives.

I've never heard of a Katherine or Karl Kappel in my family. My great-grandfather who moved to Chicago's name was Joseph.

Hi Amy, According to my father, Karl Kappel and family members came from the Austrian-Hungarian Kingdom, the towns of Sachon (sp?) and Glick (sp?) are the names he heard as a child where more relatives might still be, although the names could have changed by now. Do you know where Joseph Kappel came from?

Hi Amy! Yes, it's always interesting to run into someone with the same name as yours. My full name is Amy Elizabeth Kappel and I was born in 1975 in Oak Lawn, Illinois. I'm now living in Colorado Springs, Colorado and plan to remain here indefinately. I'd love to hear from you, even if we aren't related :) ~Amy

I live in Idaho Falls, Idaho, which is not too far from Colorado. I was born in Idaho Falls and have lived here my whole life. I was born in 1981 in December. My grandfather (the Kappel of our family) is from Wisconsin, I think the Green Bay area. He had a son from a woman that he never married. I am not sure of his name though. you can email me at - akappel81@juno.com
that would be easier than trying to go through this website. I am excited to hear from you!
