Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a direct decendent of William Capling and Barbara (Wildfong) Capling who immigrated to Canada and then the United States from England in the mid 1800's. Recent (August 2010) DNA tests on my paternal line confirm the Caplin's British Isles ancestry and English ethnicity (for the pragmatism). Mom's side of the Family (Coughlin, Evans, McCormick) provides the Irish (the passion). . .a potent combination! I am the last of James Capling (1846-1914) and Laura Platt's line. I am looking for any information on James Capling and his activities during his last years in Wolverine, Michigan during the time period of aprox. 1895 - 1900. Please contact me if you have any information or questions. My wife Nadene (Berryhill) and I currently live in the Seattle, Washington area as of 2013. We are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and avid family history nuts. I would like to hear from Yeager Family decendents. I also decend from the Sutliffs of Michigan on my Father's side and from the Corys (of Salem Witchcraft fame) and Sauvains on my Mother's side. I Would also like to hear from members of these families as well. I am also looking for decendents of Henry and Matilda (Wildfong) Caplin of Detroit, Michigan, and/or decendents of their three Children Arthur Charles, Frederick Aaron and Irene Caplin. I was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1949. Thank you.

Altho I never met Dale face-to-face, I knew him via Find a Grave. Needless to say, I was stunned this AM when I read about his passing. Thank you to you and Dale for your Find a Grave efforts.

As long as you have memories of Dale, he will not be truly gone nor forgotten.

RE: Hartungs
Thank you Larry and thanks for the quick reply. Following the Price/Jersey family in MI has been quite an undertaking. How cool that you knew the Hartungs. Thanks for helping me locate them and for all your hard work. Laura W

Thank you or your brother for letting me know I had that spelling wrong I never noticed it. I was just so thrilled to post his memorial page.

Thank you for your generous offer. I do very little writing. I have a bio written, but it needs to be edited just haven't had the time. I would like you to read it, but it is too large to post on your page. May I send it to your email?
As a professional writer I am sure you would do better with some of the grammar and I would love for you to re-write it. I believe this story deserves to be told in the best way possible.

My only connection to Kid McCoy (Norman Selby)was through the research on James Bernard Holohan who was a state senator of California and serviced as warden of San Quentin prison. I wrote his bio and he is on find-a-grave memorial # 97814058
