This Frederick Kerchner was married to Anna Barbara Fetterman. Frederick Kerchner served in the Berks County Militia during the Revolutionary War and there is a soldier's marker and flag on his grave to commemorate his service.

YDNA testing of descendants of these two Kerchner lines proves the immigrant ancestors were related but exactly how is unknown.
