Thanks for responding to my post, Karen. The name is so unusual and the area is so close that I'm still wondering if somewhere our two families connect. Even though the Kiekenapp's were from the Hammond, IN/Chicago/East Chicago area, we also had lots of family in St. Joseph/Benton Harbor, Michigan area. In fact, my husband's cousins, Rick and Sharon Kiekenapp were from that part of Michigan. He still has an uncle, Ernest Kiekenapp, living in Whiting, IN/Chicago area, and has a cousin Mark Kiekenapp in Michigan. Do any of these names connect with you? Thanks again.
