Christopher Yeakle was about 18 years of age when
he came to Pennsylvania with his mother in 1734; his
father died in Germany. He apprenticed himself to
a cooper, and continued during life to follow his trade.
He built the log-house in 1743 (yet standing, 1879) at
Cresheim, Germantown Township, Philadelphia, which
was his dwelling until nearly the Revolution, when
he purchased the property on the summit of Chestnut

habits he died possessed of considerable property. His
descendants are quite numerous in Philadelphia and
in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
