Georg Friedrich Krekel married Christine Krekel 1802. Had 7 children: Johannette, Katharine, Christine Johannette, Philipp, Johann Georg, Johann Friedrich, Karl Philipp. I am descendant of Johann Georg Krekel. It appears that most of the migration of various branches to the US took place in 1845 or 1846. In the early years my part of the family settled in New York/New Jersey. Interested in hearing from anyone from the Georg Friedrich branch of the Krekel's. I can fill in more information if anyone is interested. My brother visited Gemunden Germany years ago. There had been a Hotel Krekel. There were very few Krekel's left. Krekel is also spelled Kreckel.
