John CAPP
Catherine CHAMBERLAIN
WARNING:  there are problems with our subjects' census records.  Not only do the numbers not jibe well with the supposed family members, it appears Catherine is a widow in the 1810 and 1820 censuses, meaning not only is John's birth year off, so is his death year.  Yet, these are the only possible census records, if we take it as a given that they lived in Philadelphia (see census timeline table).  The answer may be enumerator error, but I hate to put everything off on enumerator error. 
Husband:  John CAPP
Birth said to be1768
Death said to be:  14 Feb 1826
Education said to be:  Dickinson College
Father said to be, but probably not:  Christopher CAPP
Mother said to be, but probably not:  Anna FABER

Christopher & Anna Catharina (FABER) KAPP were buried in Swatara Twp., Lebanon Co., PA, which makes it unlikely that their children would be living in Philadelphia.

Marriage:  30 Nov 1784, First Reformed Church of Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co., PA
John was very young to have married in 1784, so I wonder if his birth year is correct.
