I am looking for information regarding a Joseph (or possibly Josef) Deihl from Rheinland-falz who emigrated to Loudon Co, VA and died there in about 1785, supposedly at Caocton Manor. In about 1748 he had a son there, named Heinrich (or possibly Henry if americanized) Tiel Diehl. Heinrich had a daughter in about 1770 in Loudon Co named Catherine Tiel Diehl.
Heinrich and Catherine appear to have migrated to Tennessee between 1785 and 1812.
I have only recently started researching my family tree so all of this information is completely unsubstantiated info from onine family trees and may be in error or mixed up with other Diehls. I also wondered whether the "Tiel" middle name is simply another possible spelling of the last name (and not a middle name).
