I am researching 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 ancestor Adam Kerchner family group. John Kerchner arrived in USA the 1892/1894 and settled in Lee and Bureau County, Illinois with descendants of him settling in LaSalle County IL and Lee County IL. To date I have not found any link to my much earlier arriving 1741 immigrant ancestor, Adam Kerchner, of Lehigh and Berks Co PA. If you have family links to the Illinois Kerchner family please contact me. Thank you.
