Emma Kappel Stiverson is my gg grandmother, and I am looking for information on her parents, siblings, additional ancestors, etc. She was born in Henry County, Illinois, 31 Jul 1861, and married James H. Stiverson in Nodaway County, Missouri in 1877. They later divorced. They settled in Irving, Marshall, Kansas. Their children are James Robert (my ggrandfather), Jacob, Samuel, Frank, Effie, George, and Mayme.

I would sincerely appreciate any information.

I had an aunt named Emma Kappel. Of course not the same one that you asked about but I have found that many people were named after another relative. In 1907 when my g grandfather died his obit listed a relative of his living in the St Louis area. Other than that my kappel relatives were mostly found in central and southeastern Ohio.

I have tried to reach the above poster by email without any luck. Here is the reply to her query... From her obit.

Her girlhood days were spent in Page Co., Iowa. In 1876 she was united in marriage to James H. Stiverson. For a few years they made their home in Page Co., and in 1883 moved to Barnes, Kansas then to Irving where she spent the remaining years of her life. To this union were born seven children.

Jacob, who died in infancy, Samuel who died in young manhood, and five who survive her: Frank Stiverson of Waterville, Kansas, Mrs. Effie Odle of Marysville, and Mrs. H. Rosman, James Stiverson and George Stiverson of Irving.
