I cannot find Kempen, Prussia.


Also, it was the southernmost Kreis in Posen:

On the online maps (which I call the 'Hungarian maps', although
they include much of Germany), you can see it

in the upper left, scroll down past Schildberg
(just past the "20" mark on the edge).

...

Kepno was also written Cepno and that is also todays name.
It was in the county of Kulm (now Chelminski) in West Prussia.
The village is located about 2 km and 132 degree from todays
Stolno. Kulm as a town (not county) is now called Chelmno.

You will find Chelmno and Cepno very easy in
http://www.mapquest.com/maps/main.adp?country=PL
You should be able to find films of church records in the family
history library.
