My mom, Fay Ruth Caplinger Corporon, spent a lot of time researching the family histories of the Caplingers and the Corporons in the 1970s and 80s. The result was two books, entitled Commoners and Kings, volumes I and II. In addition, Percy Corporon, a cousin of my father, Dan L. Corporon Sr., wrote a family history entitled, Tales of a Poor Fat Boy.

Neither book was ever published conventionally, and since there is no copyright in effect for either one, I intend on scanning and making each available here on this website. This will be a time intensive project, but the only problem I really forsee has to do with the photographs from both books. They were simply photocopied and inserted in the books, so I don’t have access to the originals.

If anyone does have access to the original photos I would be interested in having scans made and sent to me via e-mail. Please contact me if you know these books and have access to the original photos.
