Research Notes (source comments, unreliable information)

William's father, W.A. Kappenman, may have been William A. Kappenman, who died in Turner County, SD, on 26 Aug 1956.

His mother may have been Margaret Dopp or Dott (b.abt 1877), and he may have had siblings Lulu or Luna Margaret (b. 16 Dec 1895; Turner County, SD) and Sylvester (b. 9 Mar 1903, McCook County, SD). Perhaps also Clarence (b. abt. 1898). Several more siblings may have been born after 1900. (See 1900 and 1930 U.S. Census for William Kappenman.)

There is a close match in the 1900 U.S. Census for District 323, Dolton Township, Turner County, SD. However, it puts his birth date as May 1899. This conflicts with his record of marriage (May 1900), and needs to be resolved.
