Hello, That was a wonderful bit of history on the Capener's.
Here is my connection to the family ;
Lavallai F. Glover dau. of Freeman & Hannah Glover m. 14 April 1872, Fairfield, WI (Vol. 5, pg. 33) William H. Capener, b. London, Eng., son of John & Sarah Capener
Freeman & Hannah Glover are my 3rd Great Grand Parents. I have lots of information on the Glovers in Maine. A cousin has many unidentified photos taken in Wisconsin, would love to get them id'd.
