Jehl was the surname of a gr+ grandmother, Maria Anna born about 1740 in a small ALsace (today's Bas-Rhin,France) town of Mussig. There were many Jehls also in the nearby small towns of Schönau and Artolsheim.There was a Baron Joannes Georg Jehl from Mussig. These Jehls were all Catholic and records can be viewed on FHC microfilms. We have found to date the Catholic church records to be easier to reed than the German. After about 1805 the French government now (again) in control, switched all birth, marriage, and death records to French, and began using pre-printed forms which are very easy to read. I have just ordered the church records from Mussig and don't have any more information yet but hope this helps.
