Gregor Stuckel (Stukel) b. 1828/9 Bohemia/Austria married Katherine Kotschevar b.1838 Austria in 1850. They immigrated in 1873 with 3 children, Marie, Jacob, and Katherina. They lived in Newark NJ for a couple of years where their 4th child, Joseph, was born. In 1876 they moved to Leaf Mountain, Otter Tail Cnty MN (near Millerville MN, where Mathias Kotschevar lived). In 1905, the Gregor Stuckel family moved to Lake Lenore, SK Canada. Gregor died Sep 21 1910 in Lake Lenore and Katherine died Nov 30 1932. Both are buried in the catholic church graveyard in Lake Lenore. Stuckel was often spelt Stukel (MN land record). They had 7 children. My grandfather is Jacob G Stuckel. Please contact me using Kathryn.firstname.lastname@example.org email address or email@example.com I have found the names Stuckel and Kotschevar mentioned in a 1700's list of Semtish villages in the Crain region of Slovenia. There is also a town in southeastern Europe, kocevar, which has a similar sound as Kotchevar or Hochevar.
