My Grandmother was Anna Marie Kappas 1893-1965 who married my grandfather Theodore Doerr. Annas father was Vincent Kappes 1857-1917 who was born in Hochhausen, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany and died in St Lucas, Iowa. His father was Frances Joseph Kappes 1828 - 1917 born in Baden-Wuerttenberg, Germany and died in Auburn, Fayette, Iowa. His mother was Catherine Detzenback 1826-1884 born in Hochhasusen, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany and died in St Lucas, Iowa.
I have not been able to trace Joseph or Catherine back any farther at this time.
