This is the history our family, the DAPP family, that has been passed down from our grandfather. Frederick Arthur Dapp homesteaded in a town called Nestow Alberta, the mail delivery was sparse as mail was mis-delivered to Nestor Alberta. The town council of Westow met to change the name, a doctor on the council had just delivered Marjorie Dapp and suggested that as Mr Dapp was a homesteader, they rename the town to Dapp.
