Descendants of Peter Y. Bechtel

Please view this as a guide. It is based on ongoing research and may contain errors. I welcome any additions or corrections. Also please note that to protect the privacy of living individuals, only up to 5 generations are included on this chart. I would also like to note that I have conflicting information for the name of Peter's wife. One source (which I unfortunately neglected to record) says she was Catherine Hoffman, but according to the obituary of her son Jonas, her name was Mary. It is also quite possible that Peter and his wife had other children in addition to those listed, but at this point, these are the only ones I can positively link to this family.
