I am researching the Lehrer/Schmid, Yackel/Roth (Yaeckel,Joeckel)members.
Johann Joeckel was born Abt. 1801 in Bavaria, Germany and was married to Anna Ruppenthall. Children: Heinrich Joeckel, b. 23 Mar 1822 in Brandenberg, Prussia, d. 17 Sep 1899 Lewiston, MN.
Peter John Joeckel, b. 19 Aug 1835, Bavaria, Germany, d. 17 May 1915, CA.
Michael L Lehrer, Sr. was born on 06 Jul 1823 in Bavaria, Germany and was married to Anna Oswald. Children, Joseph, Michael, Jr. and Anna.
Joeckel name spelling was changed to Yackel in 1854 and then the California members changed the spelling to Yaeckel sometime in the 1930`s.
Lehrer and Schmid have remained constant to this day, 2006
There are hundreds of last names, direct and indirect, as the generation ahead of mine, from which I am decended had very large families and it is impossible to name them all here.
