The 1716/17 sponsorship by Heinrich Uhl and Anna Maria von Totert is interesting because von Totert is claimed to be the family name of Heinrich's mother, Anna Agatha. Jones does not cite Anna Agatha's family name; the source for this remains unclear to me. Perhaps the sponsorship by Henry and his mother was mis-interpreted as Henry and his wife---and the two children would be the two oldest children of Henrich Uhl and his wife? Yet, Anna Agatha is different from Anna Maria. Perhaps I am just adding to the confusion with these ramblings.

I hope I haven’t baffled even myself. Jones definitely identifies the Henrich Uhl of the various Palatine lists with the Johann Henrich of the profile here with the baptism record (p. 1040). In the profile we have him married to Maria Wenner somewhere around 1713 with her as the mother, with Hendrik Oele, of children baptized in 1714, 1720 and 1727. But in the Simmendinger list of 1716/17 Heinrich Uhl appears with wife Anna Maria von Totert and their 2 children.

My other observation was really about the picture given of him as a father in the Subsistence List around his 19th birthday. Possible, of course, but unusual.

I've started adding more Uhl info from the work of Jones. He cites more information about the Uhl family in "Even More Palatine Families (2002), p. 1737. However, the sourced information is confusing and I am unsure if all of it belongs to the same family. I will add this info to the appropriate profiles once I sort through which are the appropriate profiles.

On p. 1040 of "Palatine Families of New York," Jones cites the Ana Maria von Totert from the Simmendinger list 1716/17 mentioned in John's comment. Three sentences later, Jones states that the wife of Heinrich Uhl was Maria Wenner. There is no listing for any von Totert or Totert in the index to "Palatine Families of New York." Moreover, nobody with the surname of von Totert (or Totert) is mentioned in the updated "Even More Palatine Families (2002). This is unusual because until now, I have never found a name in the Jones books that was not properly indexed. Jones lists a number of (presumably different) men named Heinrich Uhl/Ool in his works. This remans a mystery, but it seems most likely that the "Heinrich Uhl mit Anna Maria von Totert 2 children" refers to a different Heinrich.

Have I followed Jones too blindly? Are we really to believe that all the data belong to one person? Most important are the wives. How do we reconcile Maria [Wenner] the mother in 1714 and again in 1720 with Anna Maria von Totert in 1717? Are they the same person?

John, you have lost me. As I look at the page for Johann Heinrich Uhl, I see him married to Maria Wenner with his parents as Carol (Carl) Uhl and Anna Maria von Totert. Looking at your question, you appear to be asking if his mother and his wife are the same person. Have I misunderstood your question?

Uhl-462 and Uhl-143 appear to represent the same person because: Sorry to have missed 143 when working on 462. They are taken to be the same.
