I have researched this Kerchner line even though I am not a descendant of this Kerchner immigrant because this family group spelled the surname exactly the same as my immigrant family group. This family arrived in the mid 1800's and settled in York County, Pennsylvania, I have attempted to find if there was any connection between the two Kerchner families living in York County PA. But, there was no interactions between these two families, in legal records or in church records, to my knowledge, even though some family members belonged to the same Shrewsbury Lutheran Church. I have not been able to establish any link between this later 1851 immigrant, Henry Kerchner, and the earlier Jacob Kerchner, Sr., family of York Co PA. Nor have I found any link to my 1741 immigrant ancestor, Adam Kerchner, of Lehigh and Berks Co PA.
