According to Hana Shaf-Brener, Moshe Aharon Kaplan, a cantor and ritual slaughterer, and his wife, Rivka (nee Obtsinski), had two daughters and two sons: Chaya Hinda, Liba, Yakov, and Mayer.

Tsvi Kaplan (it’s not clear whether or how he was related to Moshe Aharon) and his family also lived in Shkud.

The Kaplan family in Shkud appears to have been small. Jewish Gen’s Lithuania database lists a few Kaplans living in Skuodas from the late 19th to the prewar period, but none match the names above.

Yad Vashem has no information on the Kaplan families in Shkud.

In the article  “No One is Forgotten,” by A. Straksys, the author mentions that the Kaplan sisters were killed and buried at Alka Hill (Musu Zodis Nov 17,1966).
