Mary Maria Catharina Kappes was the daughter of Andrea Michael Kappes and Apollonia Schaefer. She was born in Evangelisch, Wertheim, Mosback, Baden, Germany and christened on 11 Dec 1819 in Wertheim, Mosback, Baden, Germany (FS).

On the 1860 Chicago, Ward 5, Cook, IL census, I found gardener Henry Leterer (sic), 50, born in Bavaria, with $8K in real estate; Mary Leterer, 38, Badan; Emma Stephani, 2, IL and Fanny Stephani, 1, IL. (The latter were their grandchildren.)

On the 1880 Chicago, Cook, IL census, I found florist Henry Letterer, 70, born in Bavaria, like his parents; wife Mary C. Letterer, 59, born in Baden, like her parents and adopted grandson Adolph Stepani, 13, IL, parents in Prussia and (mom) New York. They lived at 1062 W. Madison. A Wm Neff family lives at 1064 W. Madison.

On the 1900 Precinct 8, Chicago, Ward 12, Cook, IL census, I found widow Marie Lederer, age 81, married 60 years-about 1840, born in Germany, immigrated in 1841, parents born in Germany, had 3 children, none living. She resided with her niece, Anna Holleybug, 20, IL born, her parents born in Germany. They lived at 1062 Madison Street.

Cook Co., IL Death Register, 1878-1922, cert. #9315, lists Mary Lederer, born in Germany, died in Chicago, aged 83 years, on 3 Dec 1902, a housewife, buried at Rose Hill.
