My great-great grandfather Jacob Kiehl indicated in his petition for citizenship that he was born in Bavaria in 1839. His death certificate said he was born in Rhinefalls Germany. I've done some research on the Germany Genwebs and can't seem to find a city/town close to that in Bavaria. Does anyone know if it's possibly a town or city and I'm just missing the German spelling? Also, there is a state called Rheinland-Pfalz a couple of states over from Bavaria. Could that be the Rhinefalls being referred to, in German?
Thanks for any help anyone can give.
