Menzo Kapp information
Hello Blaine,

I noticed in one of your posts that you appear to be the son of Blaine Jacob Kapp who died in 1955. If that is correct, your father was my grandmother's first cousin. My mother's older brothers knew "Uncle Menzo", "Aunt Hattie" and their three sons pretty well, including your father.

Menzo's mother (Geessien Boekweg Kapp - "Grandma Kapp") lived in my grandparents' home for the last 17 years of her life so my mom's family would get together with the extended Kapp family frequently.

My mom's oldest brother also knew the Devries family well, especially Aunt Hattie's father Bowe Devries and her brother Henry Devries.

I'm compiling a book about the Kapp-Boekweg family and I am wondering if you may have any photos of Menzo or Hattie. I have been able to track down some photos of your father as well as your uncle Bert Kapp. However, I am still trying to track down photos of Darrell.

Let me know if you happen to have any photos or any stories about the family. I realize you were very young when your father died so you probably didn't know them well. I would also be happy to send you a copy of the book once it's complete - I think you'll find the story of the Kapp and Boekweg families to be a fascinating one. The book will also include some information about the Devries family so that may also be of interest to you.

Best Wishes,
Jedd Parkinson (your distant cousin)

Good morning Blaine,
On Find A Grave it is not possible, at this point in time, to add links for the children FROM the parents, you can only link TO parents. That is probably worded funny but I hope it makes sense.
I have contacted the people who are managing Rhett and Todd's memorials and asked them to link to their father Lyle.
Thanks for the additional information.

RE: Hannah Mariah Taylor
The funny thing is she is buried right behind our grandparents, great-grandparents and great-great-grandparents.

Hi Blaine,
Thanks a lot for the picture. I live in Seattle and it's nearly impossible for me to take it myself.
