Read your message this morning. Thanks so much for your
information. I've got another question. If you go to
says under entry 126.96.36.199. that Mary Elizabeth "Elizabeth"
Lagrone b.1739, Schonau, Palatine, Germany m. Jacob Keppleman, d. bef 1794. Mary died aft 1794. It goes on to
suggest Catherina "Caty" Cappelman m. Slike (which I've seen many times as Sligh) as their daughter. Is this the same Jacob that married Elizabeth Farr? If so, is Elizabeth
Farr and Elizabeth Lagrone the same person (such as did she
marry a "Farr" and then marry Jacob later) or are these two
separate set of folks? Do you know the marriage date of
Jacob Cappleman and Elizabeth Farr? Oh, did you read the
other entries about the Capplemans that supposedly came from
England? What do you think about that? I'm pretty sure ours came from Germany just like all the other folks at that time in the Dutch Fork. Maybe "Keppelman" got anglisized as "Cappleman" which does sound sort of English.
I have a Dictionary of American Surnames and when you look
up the surname "Sligh" it says it is English. Han Ulrich
Schleigh was the immigrant and he came from Germany. Sligh
was the anglisized spelling which I guess they considered more exceptable at the time. The Capplemans that are mentioned as "English" may have immigrated from Germany
originally and got "anglisized" when they lived in England
before finally immigrating on to the U.S.
Thanks again for writing,
