no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
My great-grandparents, Earhart and Christine Bensink Yakle immigrated from Wurtemburg Germany in 1863. They settled near Quincy, Illinois. They were not Jewish--I believe they were Presbyterian. Earhart had a brother George Yakle (probably changed spelling of name--although I think there was a big disagreement about the spelling). My grandfather was Edward Yakle--he had several brothers and sisters; Christine, Susie, John, Annie, George, William, Carrie, Lillie were some of their names. If you know any other information, I'd love to hear about it.
