The Yeakley linage ( original ) is alive and well in Berks County, Pa. Not everyone is as fortunate as us Dappens to have their genealogy at their fingertips ( Counting Kindred ) however the Yeakley name is accounted for. I have visited Riggisburg many times, researching my Dappen ancestors. One only realizes after entering the village of Riggisburg ( the magnificient Vor-Alps in all their splendor ) just how severe the persecution must have been for our beloved fore-fathers to have been driven away. Their only thoughts were of us. " YET OFTEN FROM THE SPRING THE DRAUGHT IS SOUGHT, WHICH HERE TO ALL DOTH FREELY FLOW UNBOUGHT. "
