Quite all right. I am descended from the Caplinger line and offer to anyone my research of the Caplenor/Caplinger/Kepplinger line from 1730 to date. I have searched for a Kiplinger connection in hopes I could break the 1730 barrier. Would love to see anything that can take us back further. Btw, we appear in the Church Book at Schweigern, Kraichgau, Wurtemburg Germany, and on the Dover, England allegiance rolls for the ship Thistle out of Glasgow, but I guess you know that.
