I have researched this Kerchner line even though I am not a descendant of this Kerchner family because this family group spelled the surname exactly the same as my immigrant family group. This family settled in York County, Pennsylvania. I have attempted to find via traditional paper trail research if there was any connection between the two families using paper records. But, no interactions has been found between these two families, in legal records or in church records, to my knowledge. I have not been able to establish any link between this early settler, Jacob Kerchner, Sr., of York Co PA, with the 1851 immigrant,
Henry Kerchner, of York County PA, and my 1741 immigrant ancestor, Adam Kerchner, of Lehigh and Berks Co PA.
I have also been attempting to get a YDNA samples from living male Kerchner descendants of this York Co PA Kerchner pioneer to be used to compare to my Kerchner YDNA data and other early Kerchner clans in the colonies. One male line of descent of Jacob Kerchner of York Co PA has been tested. The YDNA results did not match the YDNA profile for the Lehigh Co PA Kerchner lines. Thus initial YDNA testing of the Kerchner line in York Co PA indicates they are not related. But to confirm this finding, more lines of descent for the York Co PA Kerchner family need to be tested, hopefully three separate line of descent.

Note: Some dates and locations shown are estimates. The below chart was generated using a computer program.
