My direct ancestor, William Kumbel, was born 1738 Neuweed, Germany, and died 1802 New York City. He was living in the Netherlands as a child, and joined the British Navy as an Ensign. Lived in Dutch West Indies, by all indications, and married there, later settling in White Plains, NY. He was a jeweler and clockmaker in NYC from about 1783 on. Anxious to share.
