From ca 1936-1940, my family lived next door to Kepple and Mary Disney in Ellis, Kansas Kepple died in the mid 1930s but Mary continued to live there. The house is still standing.
The Disney grandchildren were often there on a Sunday aftenoon.Kepple operated a Standard Oil service station for many years. I remember him well as both my father and uncle ran trucks out of his station delivering gasoline to primarily farmers.

They always said they were related to THE Walt Disney and they had both a son and grandson named Walt. Descendants still live in Ellis.
They had a daughter Helen who married John Chambers and daughter Grace married Everett Schlotterback. Helen and Everett died within the past few years.
