This family may be descendants of the Stoekles of Trexlertown, Lehigh County, PA. I have a strong belief that they are descendants of Steckel's from Bucks County.Still researching.

George's Estate was administrated by his wife Anna Marie and Adam Scherrer. Adam's wife was Margaret Elisabeth Raub, daughter of Michael and Maria Elisabeth on Jan 30, 1781.
