Children born in Berks Co., PA:
1.  Johann Friedrich KAPP, bap. 22 Sep 1740, Berks Co., PA; d. 17 Apr 1823, Stouchsburg, Berks Co., PA; m1. Maria Barbara Catharina STRICKLER; m2. Christina NEWMAN
2.  Maria/Mary KAPP, b. aft. 1740
3.  Johann George Michael KAPP, b. 25 Dec 1744 or 1745 

Secondary sources give our subjects two sons, Johann George and George Michael.  If our subjects followed German naming practices, as it appears they were doing (with all sons having the same saint's name, in this case, Johann), then Johann George and George Michael are the same person, that is:  Johann George Michael KAPP, as I have shown above (which explains why nothing is known of George Michael).  It is not at all unusual for a German to have three (or even four) given names.

The big question is:  Is the Andrew KAPP who came to Tulpehocken in 1728 the same one who appears there in the 1740s?  The five KAPPs in Tulpehocken in the 1740s are considered to be brothers ("Cass" is obviously a misreading of "Cap"), who immigrated to Pennsylvania in the 1730s.  So if, as it seem probable, these are two different Andrew KAPPs, how does the one from New York relate, if at all, to the ones there in the 1740s?  And, in any case, how are we going to separate their children?!
