This is Scott Kappes and I live in Portland Oregon. I was raised in Southern California, son of Richard Kappes. My Father (Richard) is the son of Roy Kappes, who married Margarite Armbruster in Aurora, Illinois in the 20's and moved to California somewhere in the Late 30's.

I was wondering, and am sure "Somewhere" way back when, we were either related or from the same area in Germany.

I've also heard that the derivation of "Kappes" is "Coppess" and that makes sense with the other Coppess' on this BB.

Look forward to hearing from some of you.

Coppess is the way the old Germans pronounced Kappes. My Grandfather was Leo Kappes and he was born on December 7, 1897 in St. Lucas. His father was Vincent Kappes. He was born in Baden, Germany and died in October 1917 and is buried in St. Lucas, Iowa. Vincents father was Joseph and was from hochhausen, baden, germany. There are quite a few Kappes' still in North East Iowa and in Minnesota from these ancestors.

Surnames: Kappes, Detzenbach, Doerr
My grandmother was Anna Marie Kappes, daughter of Vincent Kappes 1857-1917 and Mary Bodensteiner 1867-1904. Anna married my grandfather Theodore Doerr. Vincents parents were Frances Joseph Kappes 1828-1917 and Catherine Detzenbach 1826-1884. I have not been able to trace either of them back any farther. Vincent had a brother Leonhard. They were from St Lucas.
