He was an ancestor of the Jacob Gottschalk who emigrated to Pennsylvania and was a preacher in the church in Germantown. The family name of Kernes, spelled in different ways: Kommes, Komms, Kohmsen, was also found in West Prussia before 1700. They may have been related to the Rhineland branch of this family.
