Dear BIll,

I have been working on genealogy with my father since about 1983. We too have a brick wall... Daniel King (middle name maybe John). He is the son of John King (middle name possibly Peter). John left two children (both born in PA) with a Kimmel family in OH. John the married a Magdalene Snyder in PA and went on to have several more children (Lydia, Peter, are the two I recall off the top of my head I believe that there was a Benjamin as well) on his way to settling in MN. Could this be the same line you are looking at? The only other clue we have is that John stated his father was from Germany on a census. If this is the right line, please contact me directly at

With prayers for God's blessings,
