I am interested in any of the Scheckel families from Luxembourg with a connection to Jackson County Iowa.I have extensive data on many of these families and their descendants that I will gladly share.I am aware of three distinct families that lived in Jackson County in the early 1800s.They generally had post offices such as: Saint Donatus, LaMotte, Bellevue, Springbrook, and Preston.Descendants have since concentrated in Wisconsin, North and South Dakota, throughout Iowa, and Kansas.There may be another independent Scheckel line in Wisconsin about the same time, although this Phil Scheckel was also from Luxembourg, the son of Michael Scheckel and Anna Wagner.
The three famiies I am most interested in are:
John Scheckel (my great-grandfather) Mathias Scheckel who married Catherine? Marguerite "Maggie"? Regenvether/ Regenwether Peter Scheckel who married Mary S. Schreiner
