Working backwards, my grandfather was Chester Yeakel. His father's name was Charles Yeakel. Charles' father was Milton Yeakel. Milton's father was Joel Yeakel. Joel's father was Christopher Yeakel. Christopher's father was Jacob Yeakel. Jacob's father was Christopher Yeakel, and his father was David Jackel. I'm also related to David through his son Balthasar. Balthasar had a son Caspar who had a daughter Elizabeth. Elizabeth married Christopher Yeakel, Christopher Yeakel's grandson and David's great grandson.
You might want to look at http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Acropolis/5934/library.htm . This has pictures of the Schwenkfelder Library.
So you have Irish ancestors too. I'm looking for the ancestors of William Beatty who married Margaret MacKenzie, McKenzie, or Kinney. They lived in Pennsylvania in the 1880s. It's really hard to figure out anything on them. It's been said that Margaret's last name was MacKenzie or McKenzie, but her brother was know as William "Salt" Kinney. So, either he changed his name to sound less ethnic, or Margaret's real last name was Kinney. If I can get more specific on death dates or birthdates, I could probably work backwards. It's very hard to find information on Irish immigrants because, although they came over in great numbers, they didn't come over as a religious or political group which can be researched.
Good luck to you on your research.
