About Wachtel-Waughtel-Breckle Family
This is the family of George WACHTEL from Valley of the Neuce River, Germany and Barbara 
BRECKLE from Oßweil, Württemberg, Germany.  George came to the USA in 1750 and settled in 
Windsor Twp, York Co, Pennsylvania and was a wagon maker, a skill he passed on to his sons.  
The Canadochly Union Church Records show his marriage to Barbara and the baptism of their first 
child, Johannes; later records show the baptism of their son Henry's first child.  

In the same area, Stehli's/Staley's/St Luke's Union Church records show baptisms of the four youngest children and son GEORGE's first child. These were the only findings to indicate parent/child relationships. However, suspected son DEWALT was found living next to JOHANNES in the 1800 census in Salisbury District, Washington Co, Maryland, appearing he had a wife but no children. No records on son FREDERICK were found until 1810 in Washington Co, Virginia when he married. Records show son HENRY had been in Augusta Co, Virginia by 1796. In the story section is a description of a possible daughter (BARBARA) to this family.

All of the Breckle German research was done by Dieter Hils, PhD. The Wachtel research was done by: son HENRY's line - Judy Goodwin, Dona Robertson, Marcy Paul, Mark Miller, Mary Ruth Wright; son JACOB's line - Rosalie Sommers, Char Ollinger Waughtel, Sandi Waughtel Angwin, LaVerne Crews, June Neff Mohini and myself; son FREDERICK's line - Antoinette Waughtel Sorensen; son JOHANNES' line - Scott Hamilton, Marty Schaller Cavanagh, Bob R. Creager, John Hose, Ken Clopper and myself. This is still an ongoing project, so more sources and data and photos will be added.
