Volunteer Notes:

Special Unique Findings or Bible Features:
No records were found for birth or death of George Peter Yekel.
Since the name is recorded with other children it is possible he is also a child of Johann and Marie Yekel. But the information could not be confirmed.

Birth and death certificates for William and Johan(John ) suggest writer of entry has the names with the wrong dates. Find A Grave records and birth certificates show Johan (John) was born and died in 1906 and William was born and died in 1909.

Two dates given for marriage of Marie Yekel and John W Krah January 27 and January 28

Herman J A Jeckel (Yekel) birth certificate in Historical Society of Pennsylvania for 1899 confirms parents and date of birth.

Dates on p13 are incomplete. Not sure if some of the numbers are days or years

Confirmation certificate confirms Marie Klinger birth date

Kenn? (maybe Kenneth or Kennick) Listed as grandchild, parents unknown. Not able to find records. May 26 given but unclear if 26 is date or year.

Rick is written along with Caryn’s name on p12. Last name and relationship is not given.

Date of Dec 12 is given with Robt D Krah Jr. Significance is uncertain and does not match research for birth or death.

Chris Krapp may be Christie Krah but confirmation could not be found. Obituary for Christie Krah identifies parents and date of birth as 12 April, 1954.

Uncertain marriage date given for Paul F of July 2 on p6

1910 and 1920 Census were used to determine family relationships for Johan and Marie Klinger Yekel
