Do you have anything on the children of this couple that you mentioned in this thread:
"...He was the son of Jacob Caplinger and Ellen Stern."
I am still looking for the parents of John Cary Caplinger, b. 1855.
Here's his census data:
According to the 1900 census Rebecka had given birth to 10 children. Only 6 of them were listed as living at that time. Census lists John C as a farmer and son John Wesley as a Farm Laborer. The other children were at school.
