About Johannes "John" Broyles

Born in Germany, John Broyles came to the U.S. with his wife and children (Chren Conrad & Elizabeth) about 1718.

Though born in the village of Dusslingen in Württemberg, Johannes moved, perhaps around the year 1700, to Ötisheim, a small village approximately 40 miles north as the crow flies. There he met and married Ursula Ruop, daughter of a local gravedigger. And there he and Ursula began raising their family.

Johannes' father Conrad was a farmer, and Johannes was the eldest son, thus entitling him to a good inheritance, but he forsook this to make his living as a weaver in Ötisheim. Perhaps it was this sense of trying the unknown that prompted him and Ursula to join a group of families making the voyage to the New World.

There can be no doubt that Johannes and Ursula Breyhel of Ötisheim are identical to John and Urseley Broyle of Germanna. The names and ages of their children match perfectly with what is known, and they disappeared from the Ötisheim records at just the right time.
