I'm Jess Capel, William Lester Capel's grandson. I saw your post on the Capel Geneology Page. I guess we are 2nd or 3rd cousins or something like that. I'm a Major in the Army over in Korea. My Dad is Larry H. Capel from Dalton, Georgia. We were both born in Griffen, Georgia where my Granddad lived. He passed away in 1984.
I'm just starting to do a little work in my branch but I don't know much. My Mom's side in traced all the way back off of the boat from France. I never met any cousins or anyone really from the Capel side.
Your Dad was W.L. Capel's brother from the 1st wife, if I read your post right. Is that right? Where were they born and raised? I would appreciate anything you could email if you have taken your search back aways. Are we tied in to the Capel Rug people from N.C.?
