In Reply to: Eckel Surname by Janet of 75

The christening of my grandfather was 1901 as August Jacob Eckel in Hoboken NJ.
The chances of a connction may be remote- however this is what I know.
August Jacob Eckel's father was born in Willersdorf G. in 1877 (John August Eckel) and had 4 brothers and one sister... Brothers were, Jack-(moved to Ohio) Emanuel-location unknown (possibly Somerville NY- or Warren NJ) --See__ Warren Township Historical Society--Vol. 2 #8...Eckel info.
I respond to your message because Jacob Eckel seems very familiar.
My e-mail address is jkenteckel@webtv.net
Hope to hear from you. Kent
