Does anyone know what the connection is between the Kunkle line and the Peters/Koenigs in Westmoreland County, Pa from about 1800 forward?I have Mathias Peters married to Christina Koenig early 1800s with a slew of kids.Children start picking up the middle name Kunkle.I also have the following pieces of information:
In 1840 census Mathias PETERS is followed by John B. KUNKLE, also on the same page there are three other KUNKLE families, Sebastian KUNKLE Jr., Jacob KUNKLE, and John L. KUNKLE.
