That would be the Maria Yeakel, daughter of Abraham Yeakel and Sarah Miller. I have absolutely no other information. I have the 1879 book that would have been a contemporary of Maria and Isaac. I guess they couldn't get any information about them in 1879. Have you tried getting information from the Schwenkfelder Museum and Library in Pennsburg, Pennsylvania? The address is 105 Seminary Street, Pennsburg, Pennsylvania 18073-1898, and the telephone number is (215) 679-3103. They are a non-profit organization that has a lot of genealogical information about the Schwenkfelder descendants, and they have gathered more information than the 1934 Brecht book. They sponsored the Brecht book in 1934. They would probably love to hear from another descendant.
You're probably already a member of the Society of the Descendants of the Schwenkfeldian Exiles.
The only other suggestion I can make is to find the census records for 1820 or 1830 for Berks County. The best census is the 1850 census because they have all the information available. They have husband's and wive's names and children's names and their ages.
I'll keep looking and let you know if I find any information.
Sorry, I couldn't help.
(I descend from David Jackel too.)
