In looking through some information today about my husband's family I found that the Ludwig(Kehl)Kahl family left Germany in March 1871 and they traveled with the Henry (Schmehl) Schmale family. Henry Schmale was a first cousin of Katherine (Lantz) Kahl - wife of Ludwig. They came by ship to Baltimore. Hope this might be helpful. My husband tells me that his Grandmother - Babara (Kahl) Miller often went into town to visit with Mrs. Susanna Schmale.
