Subject: Uihlein Genealogy

Dear Mr. Reilly,

I am very impressed by what you compiled about the genealogy of the Milwaukee Uihleins. Let me , being member of the Uihleins who still live in Germany, comment and add, what I know about our family and its American descendents:

1. The name: In the time before 1800 writing of an Umlaut always required to write 2 vowels: thus for Umlaut "▄" either "Ue" or "Ui". Later on it became standardized as "Ue". The "Ui" spelling only remained in family and town names like "Duisburg" or "Uissigheim". However, as paper was very precious in those days writers and printers tried to avoid the double vowels and only printed Ulein. Thus the oldest entries found in 1635 in the church registers of Koenigheim (cf.below) read "Vlin" with "V" and "U" being equivalent since the times of the Romans and avoiding the Umlaut and the prolonging "h" as well as the "e" in "ein". The requirement to save paper finally lead to the nowadays German Umlauts like "▄", where the dots are the reminder of a small "e" that was originally printed on top of the "U".

2. The oldest findings about "Uihleins" I know of date back to a Sebastian Uihlein (born approx. 1580, died 03.11.1635 at K÷nigheim. I found him in "Deutsches Geschlechterbuch, Baden 5, Band 189, Verlag C:A. Starke, Frankfurter Str. 51a, 65549 Limburg, phone: +49 6431 96150, fax: +49 6431 961515.

On the map you published in the Internet you would find Koenigheim about 8 km (5mi) south of Uissigheim, which is southeast of Wertheim. Direct descendants of this family still live in Germany, however I could not yet find any link between them, my family originating from Grossheubach (opposite Miltenberg) and the Trennfurt/Milwaukee Uihleins. These links, however must exist as Koenigheim is only 33 km (approx. 20 mi), Grossheubach 6 km (approx. 4 mi), and Trennfurt 18 km (approx. 11 mi) from Miltenberg. Besides, before 1803 all places mentioned belonged to the state of the Archbishop of Mainz, Prince electorate and Chancellor of the Holy Empire. In those days the only easy way to move from one place to another was within the same territory/state.

3. I could trace my own family back to a Peter Joseph Uihlein, Innkeeper at Grossheubach, born in 1759 and died 13.12.1813. To find older entries is difficult due to the destructions of church records during the Napoleon wars. Thus any direct relationship between my family and the Trenn furt/Milwaukee Uihleins could latest have been during the generation of Johann Michael Uihlein (born 1727) and his brothers.

4. One branch of my family, who lost their father in 1864 came to New York in 1869. Direct descendants of them still live in the New Haven CT area. You may best contact George and Martha Uihlein, 45 White Oak Lane, Woodbridge CT 06525. I believe, that the Carl Uihlein in the list of your family deaths belongs to this (our) family. Furthermore I heard, that branches of this family went from New York to the west.

I would be interested in having further exchange on the Uihlein family (families). If you would also like to stay in touch with me, here are my co-ordinates:
