         Under baptisms, at Amelia on 12 May 1754, entry no. 221, Hans Michael, son of Christopher and Ann Mary Kinnler.  Entry no. 222, ref: Christoph and Ann Mary Keller.  In both instances, the surname should be Kienlein, alias Kienle.  Georg Christoph Kienlein arrived on Ship Elizabeth from Rotterdam in February 1753.  In addition to Kinnler and Keller as it appeared in the book of records, the name appeared as Kinline, Kenline, Kanline, Karline, Kinland, Kinla, Kindly, Kernline, Kernelley, Karnline, and finally as Carnline and Carnley.  Cantaline, a third corruption of the name appeared in Alabama about 1819.  Carnley, Carnline and Cantaline are now the surnames of the American descendants of George Christopher Kienlien.  Carnley is also a British name dating back to the 1500s.  Most American Carnleys, however, are not related to the British family.  George Christopher's descendants migrated from South Carolina to Alabama about 1819.  They are now concentrated in Florida, Alabama, Texas, and Louisiana. lists many Kienleins and other spellings of the name as originating in Baden.  Several of them are found in Pforzheim.  Georg Christoph's place of origin however, has not been determined - (update 081226 thanks to Sam Carnley)
