Not a particularly common name, so we are probably related in some way. I trace back to Christian Rehkugler who was a Mennonite. They came from Wurttemberg as I understand it. My Grandfather was Christian Eugene Rehkugler (wife Elsie Mae (Ross). I'd like to hear from any other Rehkuglers out there. My ancestors lived in and around south/central/eastern Pennsylvania.

I can give you the answer. The name Rehkugler exists in Germany,50 people with this name live in the surrounding of Stuttgart, state Baden-Württemberg . The roots of all Rehkugler's came from one village in the near of Salzburg, Austria, called Rehkogl near by Bad Goisern. Mathäus Rehkugler(Rehkogl) and all the inhabitants had to leave this village in the thirty-year-war between 1618-1648 because they were of Protestant religion. In this time the region of Salzburg was a part of Württemberg. Germany didn't exist.
But...his house in Rehkogl exists ! It was built before the familiy had to leave Rehkogl. The son of Mathäus, Johann,
died 18.01.1711 in Unterlenningen, Stuttgart, 15 miles away from here. Greetings from Thomas Rehkugler, Köngen, Germany

for a better understanding :
you have to split the name Rehkugler into
Reh=roe and Kugler=master of leather(former language)
More information you can get by email:

I have also heard Rehkugler defined as: Roe (deer) and kogl (ball, mound, or hill) therefore Rehkugler is 'One from Deer Hill' or an Austrian Uncle says kugler also means killer, therefore Rehkugler can mean roe killer (or deer hunter). There aren't many of us Rehkuglers around. Are you descended from Christian and Maria?

There aren't many of us is right - was just doing a general search and found your post. I'm not real close with my paternal side of the family - but my father is Roy John. My Grandparents Elvin Donald and Mary Jane(deceased). My father's siblings - Bonnie, Alta and Mari Anne. I have a brother Gregory Paul and that is where our leg of the family ends until my brother produces me a long-awaited neice or nephew.

Hi
My grandmother's mother was a Rehkugler. Christian C and Maria (Mariah) A are her greatgrandparents.

According to John George Rekugler's (Christian's son) death certificate, his father was Christian C Rehkugler and his mother was Mariah A Johns (born in PA). Christian C's death certificate lists his birthday on May 19, 1831 and death on Sept 24, 1909. His father is listed as John G Rehkugler and Margaret both of Germany. He lived in Manor twp. in Lancaster Co. PA.

The 1880 census shows him and his family living in Manor twp. It lists him (as Chris) and his wife Maria and their daughters Sarah and Ellie, and their sons John, Christian, Martin, and Joseph.

I have tried to research Christian's father, John G and have had no luck.

Hi Cindy,

I'm Kathleen Turner's cousin. Are you related to the Roy Rehkugler who used to live in Texas and moved to Tennesse?(His dad was Elvin Rehkugler in Pennsylvania)
How do I get in contact with him? I wanted to meet him but when I finally got to go to Houston, TX he was no longer there. If he is your relative and you know how to reach him see if he remembers writing back to me in Baton Rouge, LA. Can you let me know how to reach him?

My grandfather is Christian Rehkugler from Steelton, Pa (Harrisburg, PA) I think his middle name was Eugene.

Kathy, if you are reading this also, please let me hear from you.

Cindy and any others: I would love to hear any information on Rehkuglers, too. And if possible meet you.

I don't know how this works, so I hope this reaches you and I don't lose it.

Chris

I don't understand your message.

I tried looking at your suggestion to go to thomas.rehkugler@t-online.de and didn't see anything concerning Rehkuglers on it. It just looked some a page to buy stuff from. And I can't read German.

What am I supposed to do?

Saw your message. I don't really have any answers but my dad's name was John George Rehkugler and his dad was
Christian Eugene Rehkugler and mom Elsie Mae Ross Rehkulger. He was born in Harrisburg, PA, later lived in Steelton. So we must be related in some way. Actually I think all of us Rehkuglers are related, there are so few of us.

Hardly know most of my relatives, they've always lived so far away. Would love to know all the Rehkuglers. I saw one of my cousins responded to someone's message.

Would love to hear from you.

Chris

My dad's name was John George Rehkugler also. He was born in Harrisburg, PA, lived in Steelton, PA. I think he was born December 1929. Maybe 1928. He was about two years older than my mother and she was born May 1931.

Have you found out any more information on the Rehkuglers? I see my cousin Kathleen Turner had posted a reply to Cindy Rehkugler.

Are you familiar with our family line? My dad's dad was Christian Eugene Rehkugler.

Would love to hear from you.

Chris
