It would be very difficult t establish a connection, if there is one. Voegeler, Vogeler, Fogel, Fogler are all fairly common variation of this last name in the Rhine region as well as in the American colonies. I have not been able to establish the place of origin for Johann Friederich Vogeler, although it is likely that he came from somewhere in the Rhine region around 1750 given the intermarriages of his daughters in Maryland with other German speaking Lutherans from the region. "True" spelling of names prior to 1800 are rare since no standardized spelling existed for most names.
