Kichline CrestAncestors of Johann Andreas Kuechlein (1679/80-1728)


From Thomas Jefferson Kichline:

 In or about the year 1528 one Heinrich Kuechlein was born at Liestal, Switzerland. He married Appolonia Martine, on Monday, the 4th day of August, 1550. They were blessed with a son Heinrich, born 1551. From this son we are descended. Sons were born and the name handed down for several generations, until we reach the sixth generation, when our direct ancestor Johann Andreas Kuechlein was born.

 They migrated to Germany about the year 1710, and settled in Kuechheim or Kirchheim in the principality of Nassau-Weilberg or the parish of Kuechheim or Kirchheim-Bolanden. It is understood they thus migrated for the purpose of educating their children.

 Johann Andreas Kachlein, (or Kuechlein, as the Swiss name seems to have been originally spelt), the ancestor of the Kachleins or Kichlines of Bucks and Northampton Counties, Pennsylvania, was sixth in descent from Heinrich Kachlein, of Listal, Switzerland, born 1528, according to an ancient Church record of the parish of Kuechheim or Kirchheim-Bolanden, in the principality of Nassau-Weilberg, lying between the rivers Rhine and Main, in the District of Weisbaden. Johann Andreas Kachlein was born at Listal, Basel, Switzerland, in 1680, and was married about 1709 to Anna Leisse, who was born in1687 and died July 11, 1721. By her he had six children, the baptisms and births of whom appear on the parish register, between the years 1710 and 1721. Whether any of these children survived infancy does not appear. Their names were Johann Jacob, Rudolph, Maria, Andreas, Maria Katharina, and Johann George. Inasmuch as by a second marriage he had another son Andreas, it can be safely assumed that the son Andreas, born in 1712, died in infancy.

 Johann Andreas Kachlein married second in 1722, Anna Margaret Hahn, of Heppenhein in Alzey, Rheinhessen, and the record of the birth of four children of this marriage are found on the parish registry of Kuechheim or Kirchheim-Bolanden, as follows:

 

  • John Peter Kachlein, born November 8, 1722
  • Andreas born 1724, died the same year
  • Karl Christian Joseph, born 1726
  • Johann Andreas Kachlein, born December 15th, 1728
  •  Johann Andreas Kachlein, the father, died at Kuechheim, Bolandern, September 23d, 1728, three months before the birth of the youngest son, and shortly thereafter his widow Margaret married Michael Koppelger or Koppelberger, whom, with her three surviving sons, John Peter, Karl or Charles, and Andreas, she accompanied to Pennsylvania in 1742, in the good ship Francis and Elizabeth which arrived in Philadelphia, September 21, 1742. Unfortunately a full roll of the passengers of this ship has not been preserved, but in Pennsylvania Archives, Second Series, Vol XVII, page 231, is printed a list of the adult male passengers, including the names of Michael Coppelger, and of Johann Peter Kuechlein, the eldest son, then about nineteen years of age. The other two sons being under sixteen years of age were not required to qualify as subjects of the British Crown under the act of Pennsylvania Assembly, and therefore their names do not appear. 


    Kirchheimbolanden is located at 49.40N, 8.00E, west of Worms in Germany, "in the principality of Nassau-Wilburg, lying between the rivers Rhine and Main in the District of Weisbaden." --Thomas Jefferson Kichline

     Hansel gives source for European information as "Kanton Basel-Landschaft Zivilstandsemt, 4410 Liestal, Switzerland (der Zivilstandstezmte Max Stutz)". General information about the Palatine immigration to the U.S. can be found on the Palatines to America page. 


    Chuck Kichline proposes the following modifications to the line below, based on information provided by Ginny Kichline:
     
    "Ginny sent me copies of her info from Liestal, including a Köchlin tree. It shows the single Heinrich, with two wives. I think it also shows that our line comes from a Hans, the son of Bastian, rather than a Hans the son of Adam. Which makes our super grandmother Apolonia Martin rather than Elizabeth Heinimann.
  • Heinrich 1528
  • Bastian 1554
  • Hans 1622
  • Jakob 1624
  • Hans 1654
  • and that Johann Andreas 1679/80 was the first born son of Hans, and was dumped from the tree because he left Listal - or for what ever reason he left! There's an appropriate gap between the sisters Barbara 1677 and Dorthea 1681 for his birth. Johann and Andreas are both Hans cousins by Jakob's brother Hans."
