It looks like we are cousins, because that is my direct line, also. I descend from Peter, the eldest son of Philip and Catherine Charlotte (Miller) Mechlin. I have compiled 7 books on the Mechling/ Mechlin/Macklin family, and Vol. II is of the descendants of Peter and Anna Barbara (Kurr)Mechlin. As a result of my works, the Mechling Historical Association was formed some 11 or 12 years ago, of which I am historian.
Do you know of this Association?. A Newsletter is sent out 4 times a year, and we hold reunions every two years. The last one was in Greensburg,Pa. and the next one, which will be in 2002, is in Washington, D.C.
From which of Philips children is your line?
