If your Charles Mahen Kapple was born on 9 Aug 1823, we have a match! My line comes from Charles Mahen's brother Albert Faxon. I have a genealogy record from 1915 tracing Albert's line forward, but have no information back past Thomas Kapple other than a listing of Thomas' siblings and most of their birthdates. Do you have anything on the Kapples coming to America? My record states that "the parents of Thomas lived in Dublin, Ireland, and Thomas was born there or on the ocean coming to America. At that time the spelling of the name was changed. Some spelled it Capel or Caple. but Thomas spelled it Kapple." Does this sound familiar?
