Birth: Dec. 12, 1861, Germany
Death: Dec. 23, 1899
Howard County
Maryland, USA

Carl was born in Oehringen, Jagstkreis, Wurttemburg, Germany on December 12, 1861. He was the son of Johann Jacob Obenland and Christine Rosine Foernsler. He had at least on sister, Sophia, two years younger.

In 1887, Carl left Bremen on the steamship Rhein and arrived in October, 1887 in New York City. Carl's parents, Johann Jacob and Christine Obenland traveled to the United States with him. Carl's fiance, Christiana Katharine Goeldenboth, stayed behind in Germany. The plan was once Carl was settled, Christiana would join him.

The entire family settled in Howard County, MD. There, on October 26, 1890, Carl married Christiana. Carl and Christiana had 5 children. Their first child was born on March 6, 1883 and died 3 days later. His tombstone just says, "Infant"; however, a family member, Alma Obenland, left behind papers that say this child's name was Carl. Rosa was born August 19, 1891; Katharine was born on March 5, 1895; Arthur was born on November 3, 1897 and passed away on December 10, 1897. The family records say that Arthur's middle name was Carl. Caroline was born on January 26, 1899.

Carl died on December 23, 1899 in Scaggsville, Maryland. He was buried with his two little babies and his father in Saint Paul's Lutheran Cemetery in Howard County, Maryland.
Christiana, his widow, stayed in Maryland with their three girls.
