Antoni Köhl (1678-†1748) - tanner in Araschgen

Antoni may have been the first and only son of Peter Köhl and Madlena Bernett. Either the mother died at birth or the mother left the family. Evidence for a marriage could not be found so far. However, Antoni probably grew up with his father and was part of his family. His stepmother was therefore Ursula Schwarz.

With his wife Anna Schett from Malix Antoni had 7 children. Many of the baptismal witnesses of his children came from the family of the mayor Köhl. Antoni worked as a tanner and had his own tannery. He lived in Araschgen and also ran his tannery there.

According to the tax books, in 1733 Antoni owned a house and a tannery in Araschgen and a piece of land in Malix. Araschgen is also given as the residence of his son Peter.
