Peet,

We are a family of Kappen's who reside in Cincinnati, Ohio. The first Kappen we know of who arrived in the states was Henry, who was my grandfathers brother. My grandfathers name was Herman and his wifes name was Sophie. They, along with with my father Otger and his two brothers and a sister,came to the U.S. in 1959 from a town called Stadlohn, near Essen, in northwestern Germany close to the Dutch border. I hope this helps and please keep me informed. I will do some invetigation on my end with my father, Otger.

Best Regards,

Steve Kappen
