  1. Chauncey P. Reich

    Very interesting. My ancester was Johann Peter Koechlein (Kachline,etc),paternal ggggggrandfather. I am a compatriot of the SAR, Florida. Grew up in Easton, Pa. Thank you for the web site.

  2. I am researching this part of my ancestry: KOCH, Nicholaus, b. 22 April 1737, d. 21 Sept. 1818 & Elizabeth, b. 2 Feb. 1740, d. 27 Dec. 1824
    re: Johan Peter (born 9/1/1772 & deceased 2/18/1830) I am looking for a confirmation that Johan Peter was the son of Nicholaus & Elizabeth
    Does anyone have info to confirm this? I am looking to confirm this for DAR membership and DAR will not accept the info from Find-a-Grave as the only source. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    thank you
