Everything you have stated substantiates everthing I have found. If you have any more details about Levi's wife, Magdalena, I would appreciate it. Additionally I know that Jacob, Levi's son w/ Rebecca Heller, died of typhoid after almost 26 years. What I'm trying to find out is why Jacob's last name or that of his first boy Daniel w/ Rebecca changed from Kocher to Cochard (my current last name and that of at least 6 generations that I can trace back to). Levi and his wife and how the name changed are the only missing links as of now. If everything else matches up then, I agree that we can trace everything back to Henry Sr & Hannah Thomas from France.
