I'm looking for information on William Michael of Lower Mahony Township, Northumberland Co. PA. He was born around 1854, and married Rebecca Michael. I would like to know the name of his parents, and the town they came from. We have heard numerous rumors about our Michael line's origin. One was that the original spelling of the name was, "McMichael" or "MacMichael" and that it was changed to Michael. Another rumor is that our line was of PA-Dutch/German origin.
