Riegel's of PA and Johnson's of KY Updated March 20, 2001
About Our Family Research
Mothers side: Most of the Riegel family settled in Burks Co. and Union Co., PA in the late 1700's from Germany (other names of Repass, Bingeman, Stetler and Haal). Fathers side: As far as I know, one of my ancestors, a William Johnson, was one of the first settles in Jamestown, VA in the early 1600's. I have found his name on a passenger list. Have lost generations between him and my g-grandfater William Johnson of Kentucky in the early 1800's, (other names include Parsley and Webb).
