If anyone is looking for information on the descendants of this person, I will be happy to share info from a wonderful handwritten history/genealogy prepared by one of his daughters. It takes the family up to about 1920: Peter Yeakel, born in Herschberg, Rheinish Bavaria, 28 Oct. 1794, died 28 March 1885 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Married Catherine Keifer 1815; married Margaret Zobel 1857. Arrived in New York from Germany in July, 1832 and traveled by wagon across New Jersey to Pennsylvania. Lived in the Hecktown/Northampton area before moving to Altonah/Bethlehem area (that's how it is spelled in the history!)
