There are several baptism records in Berks County PA for a Jacob Carl.
No "Casper" Carl mentioned found though in those records, that I can
see. See the book, "PA Births Berks County 1710-1780", by John Humphrey,
for more details.

Among the passengers were Jacob Carrel (Carle), age 40 years, and (probably) his son John Casper Carrel (Karle), age 17 years. The spellings vary on different lists. The passenger list did not list females. See "Pennsylvania German Pioneers", Vol I and II. I have examined "most" of the ship passenger lists of that time and these are the only Carrels I find. These Carrels may have been of the large Carrel family of Bern Canton, Switzerland, seeking a new life in America, and German speaking, settling in eastern Pennsylvania and misnamed Pennsylvania Dutch.
