Born in 1850 in Grosshegesdorf um Kassel, Germany; the son of Josef and Elizabeth Behle. Carl immigrated to the United States - arriving at the Port of Baltimore aboard the Koeln on Octrober 7, 1880. He was followed by his wife, Christina, and their two oldest children. He was a well known mason and many buildings in Covington, Kentucky still bear his cornerstone.

Carl and Christina were the parents of Gertrude, Carl (Charles), Joseph, Nicholas and John.

After Christina's death in 1913, Carl married Marie Pfetzer, his next door neighbor and widow of his friend. Carl lived to be 93 years old and is buried next to Marie and Marie's first husband. The headstone lists Christina as being buried there as well but according to newspaper information on her death, it appears Christina is buried in Frankfort, Germany.
