Hi Barbara, I am a decendant of Johannes Philipp Finckel b. Abt. 1685 in Pfalz, Bayern, Germany. He married Anna Catharina Geetruy b.Abt. 1685, in Pfalz, Germany also. Johannes in turn had a son with the same name b. 26 Jul 1712 in West Camp, Ulster, NY. The surname changed through the births of their children to Finkle. They had 8 children. I would love to share info with you.
