It is interesting some are willing to take the Youghli,Juchli,Jugli leap but won't take the Youghli Yeagley leap.Christian Dappen or Deppen and Benedict Yeagley were on the same boat when they immigrated. Does the fact they came from the same area and immigrated together say anything?To me it says more than the will is George Feagley and not George Yeagley.I have seen this document and the lettering and it is a very weak argument. That lettering could just and well be Yeagley in my estimation.But I don't have a book published on this premise.They lived in the Riggesberg area before they immigrated.The families appear on the same church records in Riggesberg, Switzerland. I went over these records for hours with a brilliant professional translator and found Benidict as a son of Hans Jugli and Kristin Kunklen or Kukler. She did the translating.I could not make heads or tails of this record it is very hard to read and some of it is not very legible. So we could make many assumptions based on this record.Anyone who is not trained to translate these records would be hard pressed to come up with a sure knowledge of each letter.There were also other children listed for Hans Juchli. I think the jury is still out.Mr. Yeagley and I have gone over and over this and there is no use for further argument in our case.However I think I need to speak up so people connected to the Yeagley line can make their assuptions on fair and balanced opinions and records.
