Pfohl Family

First Generation

The ancestors of the Pfohl family were residents of Bohemia, from which country they removed in 1632 to Poland, sixty miles north of Breslau. In that district of Poland at Bojanowa, lived George Pfohl. He married Justine Klohin or Klose. Their son George Thomas Pfohl at an early age went to live among the Moravians in Herrnhut, Saxony, united with that church, married Marie Margaretha Otin or Ott, became a minister of the gospel and served in that capacity for more than fifty years. It is their son Christian Thomas Pfohl, that came to America.

Christian Thomas Pfohl (1759-1838) was a Moravian minister who came from Ebersdorf, Germany, in 1791. His party, which included John Gambold and was escorted by John Lanius, arrived in Wachovia on November 24 of that year, and it is recorded in the Moravian diaries that their baggage didn't arrive until the following July 4th. In 1800 he married Elisabeth Fockel (1775-1850).
