Children 5, 6, and 10 are said to be born in "Oberampfrach, Bottenweiler, Bayern, Germany."  Well, it can't be both.  It's either-Oberampfrach or Bottenweiler (see Geographical Notes), and another source says there are no records of Simon Peter in Bottenweiler, so it must be Oberampfrach. 

Most sources (all secondary) consider Johann Michael KAPP and Georg (Friedrich) KAPP to be sons of Johann George KAPP & Maria Catharina.  Without seeing the primary baptismal records, myself, I don't know who is correct, but based on other criteria, I'm inclined to believe these other sources, which means Simon Peter KAPP is not the progenitor of any known KAPPs in America.

Geographical Notes:

The geographical history of Germany is extremely complex; it did not become a consolidated nation (as we know it) until the 1870s.  On top of which is the question of whether you present locations as they are today or as they were at the time events (births, deaths, etc.) took place.  There is also the question of whether you use English or German spellings of the placenames, or both.  I try to use both, at least once on a page, for the sake of computer searching.

Today, the towns of Oberampfrach, Wildenholz, and Bottenweiler are in the Province of Middle Franconia [Mittelfranken], State of Bavaria [Bayern], Germany [Deutschland].  At the time these KAPPs were living in the region, Franconia was an independent Duchy; at other times, it was in the historical Principality of Ansbach.  In addition to civil districts [called Kreis], the area is divided into religious parishes by both Protestant (Evangelical Lutheran or Reformed) and Catholic churches, the names and boundaries of which are different.  The town of Oberampfrach is in the protestant Parish of Oberampfrach, Kreis Feuchtwangen.  The towns of Bottenweiler and Wildenholz are in the protestant Parish of Wildenholz, Kreis Rothenburg ob der Tauber.  Unfortunately with regard to Wildenholz, secondary sources have not made it clear whether they are referring to the parish or the town, so without consulting the primary sources, the locations, as given, are somewhat ambiguous.
