Re: Origin of name Kappel

In Reply to: Origin of name Kappel by Melanie Kappel of 76

My gg-grandfather, Abraham Koppal, came to
America sometime before 1843. He married
Prudence Newcomb in Charlotte Co., Va in 1844.
The marriage bond showed the spelling of his
surname as KOPPAL. When he took his Oath of
Citizenship in 1855, he stated he was from
Germany, near Hamburg. The surname spelling
then was KOPAL. After the Civil War it became
COPAL.
Do you know anything about the surname KOPPAL?
Would appreciate ANY clues you could give me
about my family origins.
My e-mail address: koppal@webtv.net
