Caspar/Casper Yeakle, if it is the correct Casper/Caspar Yeakle, was born January 6, 1748 and died July 11, 1804. He was the son of Baltzer/Balthasar Yeakle and Barbara Warmer Yeakel. He was married on August 10, 1775 to Anna Yeakle, daughter of Christopher Yeakle and Maria Schultz Yeakle. She was born on July 16, 1755 and died on May 11, 1837. This Caspar Yeakle/Casper Yeakle is mentioned in one of the DAR's index books. Caspar's father and grandfather, David Jackel, immigrated on the St. Andrew's Galley in September of 1734. They arrived in Philadelphia and settle in Philadelphia and Montgomery Counties. They came with a large group of immigrants seeking religious freedom. They were Silesian and practiced a form of Protestantism known as Schwenckfelder/Schwenkfelder. There is a museum in Montgomery County that is dedicated to the Schwenkfelders. It is located in Pennsburg, Montgomery County, near East Greenville, Palm, and Hereford. I believe it is on 1 Seminary Road, Pennsburg, PA. They have two websites. I think one is http://www.schwenkfelder.com and the other is http://www.centralschwenkfelder.com .

Caspar was my sixth or seventh greatgrandfather, so if you have any information about his military history, it would be greatly appreciated.
