Yes, I believe the birth on page 116, No. 2538 the sponsors Jacob Bechtel and Maria New
are your Jacob Pickel and Mary New. As for the spelling; back then the spelling was not
exact as it is today and a lot of time written phonetically. More research would need to
be done on how Bechtel became Pickel but it is likely that is what happened. My surname
Stalker morphed into Stoliker when one branch moved to lower Canada after the Revolution -
so nothing is impossible.
The church name is Linlithgo (no "e") as is located in the town of Livingston.
And, yes, I have the book "Marriage Record of Linlithgo Reformed Church Livingston,
New York 1723-1899 by Arthur C.M. Kelly, Kinship, Rhinebeck, NY 1970 and Johannes and
Catherine's marriage record is on page 15 No. 314 and cited as "4.1.1793,
Johannes Pictel and Catherine Rosamond."
