Yeakel/Yeckel: Germany>Alton, IL
Posted by: Linda Kay Garrett Date: February 07, 1999 at 19:32:31
  of 162

My Yeakel family emigrated from Germany ca 1830's to Alton, Madison Co., IL. Philip Yeakel and his children were born in Germany.
He established the Bluff City Brewery in 1840's which was in the family until the 1970's. My line comes down through his daughter, Wilhelmina who married Jacob Haas in St. Clair Co., IL. It appears they had 8 children. Their daughter, Wilhelmina married 1)William Herb, 2)William Stumberg. Her oldest daughter, Amelia married Malcolm Powell. They had 8 children, my father was the 6th and a twin. His name was Joseph Powell.
I would like to hear from anyone who has an interest in this family.
Linda Garrett
