Susanna Catharina Müller's birth date has not yet been determined. It is estimated as "around 1708" because she had a sister named Maria Dorothea born 9 September 1702 and a brother named Philip born 1 November 1705.
In 1938 Elizabeth Hoyle Rucker mistakenly published that the wife of North Carolina's pioneer Peter Heÿl was Catherine Dales born 10 April 1714 and died 7 April 1787. Catherine Dales, however, was the wife of "Peiter Heyl," who was the son of Adam Heyel. Peiter Heyl and Catherine Dales were different people from Peter and Susanna (Müller) Heÿl of North Carolina; see Peter Heyl.
Peter Heÿl married Susanna Catharina Müller, daughter of Ulrich Müller of Hundsbach 13 June 1730 at Jeckenbach, Germany. See attached images of the original marriage record. Transcription follows:
Peter Heÿl ist [is] d. 13 Junÿ [the 13th of June] mit Susanna Catharina Ulrich Müllers tochter [daughter] zu [of] Hundsback.

My grandparents lived with us for some time in the 50's, and much later on in life, I returned to North Carolina to live with them until their deaths. Granddad Hoyle was born in 1880 and always said his grandparents were Hoyle (Heyl) / Mueller having come from Germany, thus starting our introduction to this new world. Our homestead was just up the road from us (still there by the way), and we are surrounded by many generations of Hoyle's. While I lack any documentation to support the Mueller-2496 proclamation of the Hoyle/Mueller marriage, I continue to rely on my Grandfather's fantastic memory and eagerness to share our history.
I will continue to proclaim the Hoyle (Heyl) / Mueller version to my children, grandchildren and relatives. Maybe one day we will be able to get that dam monument which incorrectly links my parental Grand Father to the Diels (Dales) changed. Elizabeth Hoyle Rucker certainly did us a disservice by that single error in research. If we could "unlink" the Diels from the Hoyle's in Ancestry.com; Geni.com; or WikiTree, I'm sure that would help put this debate to rest!

What a gift to be able to understand your family story directly from your grandfather. I know I treasure the information I got from my grandpa.
Peter Heyl ???? wit Susanna Catharine Ulrich Müller ? daughter of ? Hundsbach ??? Based upon this, I believe that her father's last name was Müller, or at least he was a miller! And Urlich was his first name... Anyway, since she's likely a Müller and not a Dales and there is no other Dales links and I already merged Dales-1 with Muller-2617, I think we should make her a Müller and merge Dales-1 into Muller-2617. She was my sixth great-grandmother.
