Looking for information about the parents of my 4th great-grandparents, Christian BICKEL and Maudlin RISCHEL. Christian was born I think in 1774 and was the son of a Tobias BICKEL (PICKLE). Would like to know who Tobias married and names of other children. Tobias may have been a Revolutonary War soldier. Info in Cincinnati says Christian was but I don't think that is accurate if my birth date for him is correct. Christian supposedly returned to Centre Co. to settle up his father's estate. Maudlin's father may have been Ludwig RISCHEL, RISHEL, but not certain. He, too, may have been a soldier in the Revolutionary War. If this is her father, would like to know his wife's name and names of other children. Have had problems determing who their parents were. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
