Trying to tie a Caplinger ancestor into the Caplinger's of the late 1700's.
John Caplinger b. 1803, OH
Married: 16 May 1825 (source: FamilySearch.org - no primary source)
1850 Census in Concord, Highland Co., Ohio.
John Caplinger 47 M, Farmer Eliz Caplinger 47 F Daniel Caplinger 18 M, Laborer Martin Caplinger, 22 M Barbara Caplinger, 17 F John Caplinger 15, M Madison C. Caplinger 13, M Wesley Caplinger, 7 M
All are listed as having been born in Ohio.
Looking for the parents of John Caplinger, the full name of his wife Elizabeth (her last name might have been Fullerton - I saw one random reference to this online but it had no primary sources).
I've poured over the Caplingers of the Highland County area and think that the most probable parents for him are:
William Caplinger Magdalena Caplinger (William's cousin) William and Magdalena did migrate to Highland County and they had 4 or 5 children (my notes are not sourced well for them). They could have had John in 1803 but I can't find proof.
