I suspect that Yekel is a variation of many of the names above.I would like to work with anyone who has a similar interest.
My paternal g grandmother was Wilhelmine Jaekel Hardt from Pommerania Germany.She arrived at the Port of Baltimore on May 17, 1873 aboard the Bark Clara along with her husband, Karl and their children, Minnie, Lina and Hermann.Her other child, Auguste, died the day before they reached Baltimore.
They travelled with Friedrich and Bertha Blank, their children and Friedrich's brother, Albert.
All settled in Neenah, Wisconsin where they lived for the rest of their lives.
Please contact me if you have any information about these folks.
