Jennifer,
I’ve done a little digging for you on Ancestry.com & come up with this:

Ohio Deaths, 1908-1944 and 1958-2002
Name: Alton Caplinger
Birth Date: Est. 1908
Death Date: 6 Nov 1972
City of Death: Chillicothe
County of Death: Ross

Social Security Death Index
Name: Alton Caplinger
SSN: 272-12-1649
Born: 12 Jun 1908
Died: Nov 1972
Last Residence: 45133 Hillsboro, Highland, Ohio

Several family Trees (11) with the following name & dates have been submitted (unfortunately, with no ancestors shown):
William Alton Caplinger
Born: 12 Jun 1908
Died: 6 Nov 1972, Highland, Ohio

1910 census, Scott, Adams Co., Ohio
William A. Caplinger, age 1 10/12, born about 1908
Parents are: James B. (born abt. 1877) & Maggie M. Caplinger

1910 census, Bratton, Adams Co., Ohio
William A. Caplinger, age 12, born about 1908
Parents are: James B. (born abt. 1878) & Maggie M. Caplinger

1900 census, Bratton, Adams Co., Ohio
James B. Caplinger, age 23, born about 1877
Parents are: Jacob (born abt. 1840) & Ellen Caplinger

If you think that this William Alton Caplinger is your ancestor, you can probably send for his death certificate & application for social security card to verify that James B. & Maggie Caplinger where his parents.

If all the above is true, then you are descended from Jacob & Ellen Stern-Caplinger.
Jacob was the son of George W. & Jemima Shoemaker-Caplinger.
George W. was the son of William & Magdalena M. Caplinger (a marriage between 1st cousins).
William (who married Magdalena M. Caplinger) was the “brother” of Dr. John Caplinger.

Leonhard Johan Caplinger was the family patriarch in America:
SPELLING FROM SHIP LIST:
Leonhart Kopplinger AND Johannes Kepplinger (Johannes would have been about 17 yrs old) arrived at port Philadelphia aboard the ship: Thistle of Glasgow from Palatinate Germany, 29 Aug 1730. Ships master: Colin Dunlap from Rotterdam (last from Cowes)

Hope this helps.
Carrie
