William Henry Riehl left Germany in about 1843 to avoid enlisting in the German Army. His father Frederick was a lieutenant in the German Army and a stern taskmaster to his son.
William came to NYC and neer became a naturalized citizen.
She also says that William was born in Hanover, Germany and that Frederick was married to Ernestine.
Does this sound like the same Frederick? I have a little more information on the actual line, but I am not sure if I have what you need (FYI... Frederick is my GGGG Grandfather)
I hope this helps,
