Would be interested in knowing more about Michael--where the info about his birth year comes from. Is there a tombstone that gives his birth date or exact age? Where does the info come from that he was b. in Philadelphia? I'm researching the Dewald family, and there are folks who think that Michael Ewalt of TN was actually Michael Dewald. Seems very unlikely that someone would drop the first letter of his name, but I'm checking out all possibilities.
