Yeakle Family Genealogy Forum
I, too, an trying to trace an ancestor in MD.
named Henry Yeakle, born 1812 in Mechanicstown, Frederick County. He moved to
Springfield, IL in 1838, possibly with a brother named William, maried, had two children there and died in 1896. I have had the notion that he might be a descendant of Hans Henried Yeakel who was a Schwekenfelder person. I have had no success trying to trace back from Henry, so perhaps better luck
would be had tracing forward from Hans. Does your book cover this branch f the family? If so, did any of that family move to MD? Any clues would be most appreciated. Norma
