Probably from the right area, but settled in Erie, PA.

My ancestor, Peter Guckes, b. 4-6-1764, died 11-17-1835 Albig - Darmstadt, Hesse, Germany.
married 3-29-1808 to Barbara Hering (neeChristoph)b.11-3-1779, d. 12-8-185_? Had 5 children:

Christoph b. 11-8-1809 d. 11-18-1809
*Jakob b. 10-31-1811
Klara b.5-10-1814
Johannes b. 8-15-1816 d. 1-2-1893 m. 1848
Katharina b. 4-12-1819 m. 1845

*Jakob married Anna Margareta Breth (b. 9-26-1819, m. 11-10-1840 They had 10
children, 7 born in Darmstadt Hesse. Jacob and Margareta came to America (Erie, PA) in 1851). This from German church records by the remaining Guckes family there (10 years ago). Their children were Katharine, Anna Maria, Joahannes, Jakob, Margarete, Christoph, William, a stillborn, and ?

From that group, William Guckes came to Hardin Co., OH and married Minnie Kerchoffer.
Their son is James Monroe Guckes who married Edith Kruse. Their son is Lorenzo Guckes, my dad. I currently live in Dayton, but haven't found the connection yet between the Dayton and Erie Guckeses.
