Looking for Georg

Some research on Rootsweb revealed this:
Georg Meyer KOHL
Born: 26 Sep 1726 in Baden, Kappelrodeck Achern, Germany
31 Jan 1810 in Alleghenyville, Brecknock, Berks, Pennsylvania.

Georg was the founder of my branch or the Kohl clan. I have never seen a reference to his birthplace before, it is usually just listed as "Baden, Germany". Achern and Kappelrodeck are along the Rhine in southern Germany, across the river from Strasbourg, France.
Which explains why none of us look like Prussians, I suppose...
