I'm looking for information on my grandfather Christian Michael Kapfer. As far as I know he was born in Stutgart on Feb. 9, 1872 but lived in Creglingen on the Tauber river in Baden-Wuerttemberg. He married my grandmother Nellie Florence Wagner on March 4, 1903 in Gorin, Missouri. He was 31 years old when they married, just wondering what he did up to that point.
He died in Neillsville, WI. on Aug. 25, 1931 in a farm accident.You can answer via the e mail address. Thanks for any help.

Don't know if you're still monitoring this board or not. I was doing a little looking at my Kraus(e) relatives and noticed that a Lewis Kraus, (brother of my ancestor, and son of Adam Kraus), married a Pauline Kapfer from Germany. It appears that 4 Kapfer siblings, Including a Christian came from Bremen on the ship Smidt, arriving 18 Sep 1868. They lived in Creglingen according to Pauline's Emigration info, so I expect they're from the same family as your Christian.

My interest is more in the Krauses than the Kapfers, but perhaps if there's someone from this line they may have info about the Krauses too.

Max, my Kapfer family is also from Creglingen and lived in NE Missouri. I do have some information if you are still interested. Email is relldy01@msn.com. Look forward to your reply. Carol
