I did locate your other posting.Whilst I have not had the fortune to meet with James he was very helpful to me in 2003 in the early days of my quest to the trace the descendants of my great grandfather John Kepple. John and his brothers Daniel Cornelus and William, were all in Tooreenacopogue, Meelin Co Cork, in the 1840/1880 period.
James told me the the Cork Kepples were a mystery to him.Although he did provide me with me information about the birth of a Maurice Keppel to a Daniel Keppel and Catherine Emperor in Cork on 28 September 1868.
Only three weeks ago I was contacted from Australia by a descendant of another child of Daniel and Catherine.Her ancestor was a Jeremiah who came to Australia in 1888.She was responding to a posting I made on Ancestry in July 2005.Our exchanges of information over the past three weeks had been mutually benefical.
Bert would you mind making direct contact with me via my email address: keppels at paradise.net.nz You will note I have not used used the standard format for that address for obvious reasons.
