Looking for any information on the Yackel, Janak families in Texas, possibly Fayette or Wharton counties. Annie Yackel, the daughter of John Yackel and Lena Janak, was born in Fayette county in 1906 and married John F. Wise, Jr. They lived most of their lives in Wharton, Texas, both dying in 1976. Would love to connect with any of their descendants.

Hello Carol, At this point (2008) that would not be much. John had a daughter I know nothing of, but together with Annie they raised John F "Buckshot" Wise III, born June 21, 1930. He married Wilma Olivia Burns/Wise and they had a total of 4 children. 1st was Carolyn who died shortly after childbirth (buried Wharton, Tx/1957), following 2nd was Perry D Wise 1958, then 3rd was Gay Lynn Wise/Clinton 1959, and last was Milissa K Wise 1971. John III died in 1994 of a massive heart attack. Wilma followed in 1995/ suicide. Gay Lynn and her Daughter Samantha Renee Burge/Clinton were murdered in December of 2002 by her estranged husband Douglas "Doug" Clinton of Brazoria, Tx. Perry lives in Texas and Milissa lives In Cabo San Lucas, Mx. My Grandparents, John and Annie both suffered strokes which took 1st her then him in '76. Hope this Helps! Yours, Perry Wise. Fort Worth, Texas

My GGGrandfather was Peter John Joeckel (1835-1915). His son Louis Yackel (sp. changed about 1854)(1861-1907) was my GGrandfather. A 1st cousin of mine once told me that Peter John Joeckel had a 3rd marriage when he moved to Texas. I have never been able to make any connections and the rumor of course could be untrue, but since the last name Yackel is not a common one, I am curious.

My Father was the son of the above mention Louis Yackel who was an opera singer. I am one of Arthur John Yackel's 4 living children. The Joeckel/Yackel family seems to have lived mainly in the Midwest, MN and WI. as far as my research tells me.

If you have any information that might be relavant, please let me know. Thank you. Margaret
