Kuenzel or Künzel Family

First Generation

Johann Friedrich Kuenzel (1737-1802) and his wife Sophia Salome Kastner (1734-1816) were among the settlers who came to NC from Broad Bay, Maine, in 1770. Sophia Salome had previously married Johann Georg Lachenauer, who died in Maine in 1757. Did Johann Friedrich Kuenzel also have a previous marriage? And if so, could some of the children listed here be from the first marriage?

Second Generation

Probable children of Johann Friedrich Kuenzel and Sophia Salome Kastner
Elisabeth Kuenzel (1759-1834) m. Philip Kroehn (1755-1818)
Anna Maria "Mollie" Kuenzel (1761-1792) m. Georg Michael Vogler (1759-1795)
