Children of Frederick Boeckel and Anna Barbara Frey
Christina Boeckel (b. & d. 1765)
Elizabeth Boeckel (1766-1816) m. Johannes Schor (1764-1844)
Tobias Boeckel (1768-1807) m. Anna Margaret Fishel (1772-1825)
Johannes Boeckel (1770-1778)
John Valentine Boeckel (1772-1828) m. Anna Maria Hauser (1776-1835)
Maria Catharina Boeckel (1774-1809) m. John Henry Shore (1768-1826)

Maria Boeckel (1781-1849) m. Johann Georg Schott (1773-1850)
Anton Boeckel (1785-1823?) m. Magdalena Rominger (1789-1842)

Previously we had Anton's death listed as 1843, but Magdalena's death is noted in the Moravian Records in September 1842, and she is referred to as a widow. We think he may be the Anton Boeckel who died in 1823 and is buried at Friedberg Moravian.
