Hey Colleen, that would be me. I didn't know that it was your file on the Ancestry page. I was just discussing all of the different Christopher Yeakels.

Christopher Yeakel who married Elizabeth Yeakel was the son of Jacob Yeakel and Susannah Schultz. Christopher was also the grandson of Christopher Yeakel and Rosina Hoffman Seipt and the great grandson of David Yeakel. Elizabeth was also a great grand child of David Yeakel/Jackel. Her grandfather was Balthasar Yeakel who was married to Barbara Mentzel Yeakel. Her father was Caspar Yeakel, and her mother was Anna Yeakle, daughter of Christopher Yeakle and Maria Schultz. Incidently, Anna had a brother named Christopher Yeakle who married Susanna Kriebel. And Anna's grandfather was also Christopher Yeakle who married Regina Hubner (Heebner). Too many Christophers.

If you want dates on any of these, tell me.

The pickles (Yeakles) and the cucumbers(Yeakels) was a way that many Yeakels discerned the differences. The pickles generally lived closer to Philadelphia County. They also lived in Montgomery County. The cucumbers moved out of Philadelphia County in the 1700s, into Montgomery County, then into Lehigh County. Don't ask me how those names came about. I don't know when either. My dad and my relatives always refer to the pickles and the cucumbers when talking about Yeakles/Yeakels.

Susanna Yeakel
