Hi Geri,
Could you please give me some data on Michael Kechele and on Johan
Michael Kuchle? I'm trying to determine if they are the same person. I
find the alternate surname "Kigli" in data for both men. Both have a son
Jacob and a daughter Margaret. Both born in Germany, and with about birth
dates close, and both lived in Macungie Twp., Northampton Co., Pa.
Michael Kechele's daughter Margaret married John George Reis (my
ancestors), and Johan Michael Kuchle has connections to Maria Gertraut
Wagner m. Adam Desh/Desch (my ancestors). Would appreciate any insight you
could give me. Thanks. Elaine Campbell
