Hi------the message u wrote is a few yrs old but maybe you'll see this at some point. I myself am not related but I was doing geneology research on my sons father parents side ( my boys grandparents) Emils brother Albert married Clara Yunker. The Yunker family ( oh gosh if u can try to follow this) My sons grandma--their own fathers mother on t-----her mother was a Yunker before she got married ( when the grandmothers mother got married she married a Bochmann.When my sons grandmother married she married James Potter. I do know Clara died when Marvin was 2( I have copies of census s ) and the other 2 brothers lived with other family members. Do U by any chance have an pics of these people? Any other info would be interesting to know.
Thanks Donna Artist

Thanks for pitching in! Donna, I'm sorry, there are too many names missing for me to make clear sense of your note. Is this what you are saying? Did I chart it correctly?

1. James POTTER m. __female__ YUNKER
...2. __female__ POTTER m __male__ BOCHMANN
......3. __male__ BOCHMANN m. you, Donna _____
...........4. Donna's sons, surnamed BOCHMANN?

And you think this female YUNKER married to James POTTER in generation #1 above links into Clara YUNKER CAPPEL but you don't say how -- how were they related?

I have no photos of anyone but a biography of Emil CAPPEL is available through the woman writing here in 2006:
http://boards.ancestry.com/surnames.cappel/18.1/mb.ashx
and maybe she has pictures. This is not my family, so I have never asked her for it.

Thanks for posting; I look forward to your follow-up!

Based solely on the obituary of Marvin A. CAPPEL which began this thread, I have charted the family relationships as below.

WARNING: Generation 6 is four children. From Marvin's obit, it sounded like these four kids were the children of Jason CAPPEL, but I can't be sure. Maybe some or all of them are the children of 's brother Mathew CAPPEL.

I am not related to this family and know nothing about them but what is in this thread. I did the chart below as a random act of genealogical kindness for Donna Artist, who is researching her own children's YUNKER background now in 2009. (See her note above in this thread).

1. Unknown CAPPEL (MAC obit)
....2. Emil CAPPEL m. Emma _____ (MAC obit)
....2. Albert CAPPEL m. Clara YUNKER (MAC obit) Clara d. c1924 per Donna Artist
........3. Harold CAPPEL (deceased per MAC obit)
........3. Wesley CAPPEL m. Toots (nickname?)____ (MAC obit)
........3. Marvin A. CAPPEL (1922-2004) m. Mildred VOGT (__ - 1997) (MAC obit)
............4. Dawn CAPPEL (MAC obit lists her as deceased)
............4. Diane CAPPEL m. Ron HATTENDORF (MAC obit)
.................5. Renee HATTENDORF (MAC obit)

Ok Ill explain better--Ill go back a few generations farther
George Yunker (B.Yr. abt 1885) married Emma (B.Yr. abt 1886) nee Engelhardt---they had 3 daug. Luella (B.Yr abt 1910--- marrys John Blume) Sylvia (B.Yr abt 1912 marrys Howard Blume ) and Myra ( B. Yr. abt 1912--marrys Edwin Bochmann)
Myra and Edwin had 4 children Oralee Meyer, Eileen Keuch, Diane Winterstein ( all 3 still living) and Virlene Potter who married James Potter. Virlene and James had 6 kids lived in Tinley and one of their sons Garry is my sons father.
So Virlenes mother before she got married was a Yunker and as Im re reading your reply back you are not related. Emils brother Albert married Clara Yunker who is prob. an gr. gr.aunt down the line to Virlene.
OK I think thats it. TY for the link.
Donna

Donna, thanks for clearing this up -- so this is TOTALLY WRONG:
1. James POTTER m. __female__ YUNKER
...2. __female__ POTTER m __male__ BOCHMANN
......3. __male__ BOCHMANN m. you, Donna _____
...........4. Donna's sons, surnamed BOCHMANN?

BUT THIS IS CORRECT - right?

1. George YUNKER (b. c1885) m. Emma ENGLEHARDT (b. c1886)
....2. Luella YUNKER (b. c1910) m. John BLUME
....2. Sylvia YUNKER (b. c1912) m. Howard BLUME
....2. Myra YUNKER (b. c1912) m. Edwin BOCHMANN
........3. Oralee BOCHMANN m. ___ MEYER
........3. Eileen BOCHMANN m. ___ KEUCH
........3. Diane BOCHMANN m. ___ WINTERSTEIN
........3. Virlene BOCHMANN m. James POTTER and lived in Tinley Park, IL
............4. (five kids whose names are not listed)
............4. Garry POTTER m. Donna ______ (you)
................5. Donna's sons

You THINK Myra YUNKER BOCHMANN might be related to the Clara YUNKER CAPPEL who married Albert CAPPEL, but you are not sure of how. Myra's daughter Virlene BOCHMANN POTTER lived in Tinley Park, IL and Clara's son Marvin CAPPEL lived in Tinley Park too.

There's a couple of unusual things in your second generation above - the three sisters Louella, Sylvia, and Myra. You have Sylvia and Myra both born around 1912 - do you think they were twins? And you show Louella and Sylvia both marrying BLUME men - do you think they were brothers?

Don't answer me here, because tell you what -- I'm going to copy this over to the YUNKER board because that might be where you will find more people directly related to your sons' great-grandma Myra YUNKER BOCHMANN. Her connection to Clara YUNKER CAPPEL needs more info. Maybe they were cousins, since you didn't find Clara as a sister to Myra in your research above.

To comment on the CAPPEL connection, just reply here. To follow up or correct anything on the YUNKER side, please reply over here:

Yes Clara is a gr gr maybe even a gr aunt to Virlene.I have about 4 generations starting in 1870 Illinois with the Yunker side and between all of their kids and who they married and then their kids it gets crazy but interesting.

Yes Luella and Sylvia were twins. My boys father is a twin too.
The men they married the Blumes-----they were brothers dont know if they were twins.
