|Birth: ||Aug. 22, 1781|

Peter Kiehl's tombstone lists an August 22d 1781 birth date. However, the Christ Lutheran Church (Stouchburg, Berks Co., Pa.) has the following birth record:
Birth: December 22, 1781
Baptism: March 31, 1782
Infant: George Peter
Parents: Peter Kihl and wife Hanna
Sponsors: George Peter Kruger
This is probably the same Peter. Pehaps Peter's family did not know the correct month or a 12 looked like an 8 when transcribing his birthdate onto the stone.
Peter Kiehl was a farmer in Jackson Township, Northumberland County, Pennsylvania.
Supporting this theory is the birth record of Johannes Kiehl, who I suspect to be Peter's brother. Johannes settled in Stone Valley, Northumberland County. This is in Lower Mahanoy Township, right next to Jackson Township.
