Hi Ray,Thanks for the reply, Charlotte Yakel b 21 Dec 1883 was my maternal grandmother. I do have Frederick Yakel and Ann (aka Nancy)Kirkbride's marriage cert.Ann's father was Edward Kirkbride, Occupation, blacksmith. Her mother was Ellen Mason. Frederick Yakel's father was Frederich Wilheim Yakel (sometimes spelt Jaeckel) Occupation, seaman b Prussia.
Frederich W. Jaeckel married Dorothy Barlow 1 Sept. 1839, St. Nicholas Church, Liverpool.They had 3 children in 1851 Census, John William b abt 1841,Ellen b. abt 1847 and a Frederick b abt. 1850. If you would like me to scan the marriage certificates to you just let me know.I am still searching for Frederich Wilheim's birthplace in Austria, his father's name was Johan Jaeckle, occupation carpenter.Cheers, Delwyn.
