I thought those with the name Cohen, Levine, levy,cohn, kohn, Levi are of the priesthood of Aaron who one day will make a righteous offering unto the Lord!

Right, those are all priestly names.

Jehoiakim/Jeconiah/Coniah, whichever version of the name you prefer, was of the line of David, of the tribe of Judah. False cognates aside, there is no connection with the kohenim or leviim.

Thank you for the replies. So John Kerry is descended from the Levites, and ultimately Aaron. The tribe of Judah has remained separate in terms of patrilineal descent.
