Thank you for responding. It is all fascinating isn't it? It appears that you are right and the other person was incorrect. Hans Peter Kleinfelder/Klinefelter was Michael's father instead of Melchoir Kleinfelter. There was a Kleinfelder/Klinefelter book I saw in Mesa, Arizona where they said Mechoir was his father. That is why I through it out there. Since I read and write teh old German script I think I will see what else might be hidden in those records that others might have missed. I appreciate all your help and will post whatever I discover. Warmest wishes to you and yours always.
