My line of STENGEL's no doubt came through New York City and settled in Hunterdon County, New Jersey. From what I've learned, they came from Rheinhardsmunster in the Alsace region of France. A directly related line was in New Orleans, Louisiana and came north to New Jersey following an outbreak of yellow fever. Some members of this family remained in the Little York area of Hunterdon County, while others moved to the Bound Brook area of Somerset County, New Jersey. Whether your line of STENGEL's and my line are related is unknown to me at this time.
I'll have to pull names and dates to forward to you at a later date. It's been quite awhile since I last worked on this family.
