Here are two items you might find of interest. First, follow the link below for info about Kapyl and associated settlement in Sioux City.

Second, do a Google search on "Abe Shulkin Torah arc". He was from Kapyl and settled in Sioux City where he carved a Torah arc that's now found in "The Jewish Museum" in NYC. There should be links to photos of the arc and biographical information that might be of value to you.
