The roots of this family were found at 6300 Nauborn (located 6 km east of Braunfels). The Nauborn church registers show Carl Uhl and his wife Anna Agatha were there by 1688.[1]

Sept, 1709. Anna Agatha Uhl sponsored Johann Everhard Milich, as the family passed through Holland[2]

12 Feb 1710. Carl Uhl sponsored Johann Paustain in London in 1710[3] However, Henry Jones Jr. questions how Uhl could have sponsored Paustain in London and then somehow joined Palatines sailing for American so shortly thereafter.[4]

Carol is listed on Governor Hunter's lists from 1710 to 1712.[5] There he is listed with 4 people over 10 and 1 under in 1710 and with 3 over 10 and 1 under in 1712.

He is probably the Carel Owle in the 1715 list of Ulster Co. naturalizations (p. 87).

He is also listed in Simmendinger's Register in 1717 with a wife and three children in Beckmansland, near Rhinebeck, New York.[6]

Carol/Carl Uhl and his wife Anna Agatha had the following children:[7]

  1. Maria Elisabetha, baptized 17 Jun 1688, sponsors were Johann Conrad Lauterbach and Maria Hoffman, wife of David Hoffman.[8]
  2. Anna Kunigunda, baptized 13 Nov, 1690, sponsors were Johann Jacob Zimmerman and Anna Kunigunda Cuntz, wife of Johann Peter Cuntz. Ana Kungunda Uhl died in 1691.[9]
  3. Jost Andreas, baptized 16 Jan 1692, sponsors were Jost Andreas Theis and Anna Elisabetha Merckel, wife of Johann Henrich Merckel.[10]
  4. Johann Henrich, baptized 7 March 1693. Henrich Uhl is the 1709er--#770 on Governor Hunter's lists. He married Maria Wenner; 5 children born in New York
  5. Anna Christina, baptized 18 Oct 1696. She married Sebastian Treber.
  6. Anna Maria, baptized 30 April 1699; she died in 1700
  7. Philip Caspar, baptized 18 Feb 1701; he died in 1701
  8. Anna Margaretha, baptized 16 July 1702. She married Philip Müller.

Research Notes

Church books at Nauborn/Lahn show that a Johann Jacob Zimmerman--who is different from the 1709er Johann Jacob Zimmerman (Hunter Lists # 843)--had a son Johann Jacob Zimmerman (Jr.), baptized 5 Jun 1687. This Johann Jacob (Sr.) sponsored the emigrant NY 1709er Carl Uhl (Hunter Lists #769) at Nauborn/Lahn in 1690. In some genealogies, this sponsorship may have been mis-interpreted as indicating that Carl Uhl himself was born in 1690, when probably it refers to one of his his children, most likely Ann Kunigunda Uhl born 1690.[11]

Simmendinger also shows a Heinrich Uhl with wife Anna Maria von Totert. Possible siblings of Carl and Anna Agatha?

Henrich Oel and Maria Boek were sponsors for Johannes Muller.

So, if Johann Heinrich Uhl is born in 1693, how could he have come over in 1709 and be married? He can't. It is another Heinrich. He certainly wouldn't have had 2 children! Nope, not at age 16. I do not have documentation, but I have Carl as Carl Heinrich Uhl. Okay, I shall go back to looking!

Johann Heinrich married in New York in 1713 after migration with his father Carl and family. The Heinrich in Simmendinger is definitely someone else, possibly a brother of Carl. But that is uncertain as of yet.

This should already have been entered. I have this family and have known of them for 40 years. I shall double-check my tree. Perhaps they did not upload as desired. I am direct line.

But isn’t Von Totert married to Henrich there?
posted by John Balow
Simmendinger shows an Anna Maria married to Heinrich. Carol's wife is not named. Two brothers married to two sisters? That was very common at that time.

Is this the Carol Uhl in the New York Subsistence List (Knittle 290)?
posted by John Balow
Yes that would be him. Also on Simmendinger's list as Carolus Uhl with wife and three children. (
