September Court 1810. Proven and ordered to be Recorded

1810 John Wical warranted land in Haywood County, North Carolina. "John Wical enters 200 acres of land in haywood county beginning near a branch below Scots old field joining Lewis Smith and Martin buffs entry." Dated April 6. [36]

1810 Magdalena's death has been reported by some researchers on March 15, 1810 in Haywood County, North Carolina.

1820 John Wickle lived in Haywood County, North Carolina in a household with males: 1 (26 thru 44); and females: 2 (16 thru 25). [37]

1820 Michel Wickle lived in Haywood County, North Carolina in a household with males: 1 (16 thru 25); and females: 1 (under 10), 1 (16 thru 25), and 1 (26 thru 44). [38]

1827-1841 John and Barbara Wikle were named in several Haywood County, North Carolina deeds. [40] [41] [42] [43] [44]

Research Notes:

We are researching Peter Weigle, father of John Weigle. We suspect that Peter, father of John, was the same person as Peter, the son of Martin Weigle, named in the 1759 Orphan's Court document. Notes for more than one person named Peter Weigle are listed. There are documents from North Carolina and there are several documents that might relate to different men named Peter Weigel in Pennsylvania, especially with dates after 1800. A York County deed names Peter Weigle (of Bastian) and Peter Weigel (of Martin) as two different men. We do not know how many different men were named in these documents. We suspect that Peter Weigel, who died in 1828, was a son of Martin Weigel and was a nephew of this Peter Weigel.

Maria Magdaline, widow of Peter Wikle lived in North Carolina during this time period. Some researchers suggest that Peter Wikle of North Carolina and Peter Weigle of Pennsylvania were the same person. We now show them as the same family, because several children of Wikle of North Carolina are DNA matched cousins of Robert. We seek further evidence clarifying this potential relationship. Note that John Wikel, heir of Peter Wikle of North Carolina, was named in a North Carolina documents dated 1804 to 1821, so he was not the same person as John Weigle of Adams County, Pennsylvania.

Samuel Wikle was named in a biosketch of Jeptha Wikle. [45]:

This is a story about my grandfather, Jeptha Wikle. Jeptha lived in the Kaufman area approcimately twenty years, from about 1844 to 1864. But first, let's go back and start with the story of the first member of our family to arrive in America.

Johann Martin Weigel was born in Saalbach, Germany in 1703. In 1729, Johann married Dorothea Triddell. In 1732, the embarked for America and settled in York County, Pennsylvania, where they built and operated a mill. Johann was the progenitor of many descendants whose names have been spelled, variously, Weigel, Weikle, Weichel, Weigle, Wikel, and Wikle. On the 1860 census in Kaufman, we found the name spelled Wackle.

My great-great grandfather, Peter Weigel, was one of eleven children born to Johann and Dorothea. About 1771 Peter married Maria Magdalena Witmeyer. Peter was a skil [?] Revolutionary Army in that capacity. Following the Revolutionary War, Peter and family moved to Virginia, where they lived until about 1787, when they moved to Tenne County, North Carolina, where Peter built and operated a mill. About 1799, Peter and a brother and two sons, started [?] other Wikles. En route, all four of them were killed by Indians.

My great-grandfather, Samuel, was one of eleven children born to Peter and Mary. Samuel was born about 1789. In 1823, Samuel married Ester Bandy and they lived in North Carolina, where they farmed and raised hogs. Ester was born in South Carolina in 1800. Samuel died in 1844. The following year Ester and her family moved to a farm in Georgia, located near that would now be the outskirts of Atlanta.

My grandfather Jeptha was one of twelve children born to Samuel and Eester. He was born in 1824. After Samuel's death, my grandfather Jeptha, and his brother, Henry, decided to go West. They located in Kaufman County, Texas. …

Research Notes:

Some researchers report that Peter Weigel had married Magdalena Witmeyer in Pennsylvania and then died in Rutherford County, North Carolina and that widow Mary Magdalena Witmeyer Weigel then married Michael Tanner/Danner. [46] However, several documents seem inconsistent with the move to North Carolina. Why did Magdalena's father, Simon Witmeyer, in his 1801 Pennsylvania will, name Magdalena as the wife of Peter Weigel, if she had married Michael Danner in 1800, and who was Peter Weikel with notes due to Simon Witmeyer in 1806 in Pennsylvania? There are many documents in York County referring to men named Peter Weigle, after 1790, when Peter Wikle first appeared in North Carolina documents.

1800 Peter Weigle, cordwainer, was listed on the septennial census for Dover Twp, York County, Pennsylvania. [47]

1800 Peter Wickle, shoemaker, was listed on the septennial census for West Manchester Twp, York County, Pennsylvania. [48]

1800 Peter Weigle lived in Manchester, York County, Pennsylvania in a household with Males: 1 (age 26 thru 44); Females: 1 (age Under 10), and 1 (age 16 thru 25). [49] [50]

1801 Magdalena's father, Simon Witmeyer, died and his will, dated 10 September 1801 in York County, mentioned daughter Magdalena, wife of Peter Weigle.

1805 Christina [Hass], intermarried with Peter Weigle, was named as an heir of John Hass, deceased, in the York County Orphans Court records. [51]

1806 The account of the estate of Simon Witmeyer mentioned two bonds and a book account payable by Peter Weikel.

1807 Peter Weickle was listed on the septennial census for West Manchester Twp, York County, Pennsylvania. [52]

1810 On December 12, Peter Weigle [Wygle] was granted 168.83 acres in West Manchester Twp, York County, by John Penn's attorney, John R Coates. The land was in Springetsbury Manor, adjacent to lands of Dietrich Rupert, Leonard Leckron, and George Eisenhart. The land was originally warranted to Leonard Ox, but no warrant was located. [53] [54]

1810 Peter Weigle lived in West Manchester Twp, York County, Pennsylvania in a household with males: 1 (under 10), 1 (16 thru 25), and 1 (26 thru 44); and females: 4 (under 10), 1 (10 thru 15), and 2 (26 thru 44). [55] Listed nearby was the family of Simon Wittmeyer (Jr) (Peter's brother-in-law) and of Philip Wolfe and George Isenhard (named as neighbors in Simon Witmeyer Sr's will).

1810 Peter Weikle lived in West Manchester Twp, York County, Pennsylvania in a household with males: 1 (under 10), 1 (10 thru 15), and 1 (26 thru 44); and females: 3 (under 10) and 1 (26 thru 44). [56] Nearby was Leonard Weigle (Peter's brother) and his wife, both age 45+.

1813 On December 27, Peter Weigle (of Bastian) and wife Catharina, of West Manchester, sold land to Peter Weigle (of Martin [perhaps a son of Martin Weigle and Margaret Opp]), of the same place. The land had been sold to Henry Weigle and Peter Weigle (of Bastian), and then sold by Henry and Anna Maria Weigle and Peter and Catharina Weigle to Sigfried Schneider. Sigfried and Catharina Schneider then sold the land back to Peter Weigle (of Bastian). [57]

1817 Peter Weigle (father) granted land in Dover and Manchester to John Weigle (son) on 11 April [58]

1820 Two Peter Weigle families lived in West Manchester, York County, Pennsylvania, neither the correct age to be this Peter. We suspect that one was nephew Peter Weigle, son of Martin and one was nephew Peter, son of Sebastian.

1820 Peter Weigle lived in West Manchester Twp, York County, Pennsylvania in a household with males: 1 (under 10) and 1 (26 thru 44); and females: 3 (under 10) and 1 (16 thru 25). [59]

1820 Peter Weigle, Far[mer], lived in West Manchester Twp, York County, Pennsylvania in a household with males: 2 (under 10), 1 (16 thru 18), 1 (16 thru 25), and 1 (26 thru 44); and females: 3 (under 10), 3 (10 thru 15), 2 (16 thru 25), and 1 (26 thru 44). [60] [61]

Listed nearby was the family of Simon Wittmeyer (Jr) (Peter's brother-in-law) and of Philip Wolfe and George Isenhard (named as neighbors in Simon Witmeyer Sr's will). Also nearby was Leonard Weigle (Peter's brother) and his wife, both age 45+.

1805 On December 17, heirs of John Hass of Dover Twp, York County, including widow Magdalena, Peter Weigel and wife Christeni, John Hass junior, Christian Graff and wife Mary, Joseph Koch and wife Sarah, Henry Linebauch and wife Barbara, Catharina Hass, and Elizabeth Hass granted their inheritance to brother Joseph Hass, since the will of John Hass, deceased, had been lost. [62]

1833 Mary Weigle, perhaps this widow Mary (Magdalena Witmeyer) Weigle, died in 1833 in West Manchester Twp, York County. [63]
