This week in 1882, our (Great-) Grandfather Kappius was born. Happy Birthday, Great-Grandpa Josef!
Tag: Lingemann family
Nobody would have called our 2nd and 3rd great-grandfather ‘Franziskus Xaverius’. In his hometown Haaren, he would have been known as ‘Reelen’s Xaver’.
Today we remember my father Jupp, whose family relations were a closed book for us for a long time.
Today we remember my paternal grandmother Antonie Cappius née Lingemann.
Today we remember my paternal great-grandfather, last seen alive on the West Front in late 1915.
