Would the person who contacted me regarding the following family e-mail me, again?I've lost some of my mail due to changing servers - and also moving recently.Thanks! I think it was on this family or else his parents - Christian MICHAEL, II & Maria Catharine (RIEDT) of Northumberland County, PA.I know the person said they saw it on this website. Who were you??
Samuel MICHAEL, Sr. born 1808, in Northumberland County, PA.,died 1889 in Ringgold, Jefferson Co. PA.His wife was Appellonia "Abby" (KNERR), b. circa 1815 to 1816 died in 1861.Does anyone know who her parents were??Could it have been a George KNERR??Samuel & Appellonia were both confirmed at Stone Valley Church, Northumberland County, near village of Hickory Corners, PA.They then migrated with the eldest daughter to what was then Porter Twp., which this area later became Ringgold Twp., very close to the village of Ringgold, Jefferson County, PA. along with others. They had issue:
1.Judith married John KUNSELMAN who died in Andersonville Prison, Civil War,and secondly Jacob H. SHICK, of New Salem, Redbank Twp., Armstrong Co., PA.
2.Samuel, Jr. married first Mary Ann WISE (my ancestors) lived in Ringgold, Jefferson Co. PA. He married secondly: Martha E. MOWREY, and thirdly: Mary "Polly" (DINGER) SHICK, from whom he legally separated.
His first wife and family were involved in an attempted robbery of their home in Jan. 1893, of which data has carried down thru the generations all these years. I've the actual boards with bullet holes thru them! My grandmother, was one who had shots fired at her, and it's quite an exciting story!
3.John, died in Civil War.His widow, Rebecca (WISE) MICHAEL, remarried Daniel E. LANKERD, and lived in Westphalia, Kansas.Looking for Descendants, so Kansas folks do you connect here?I've met some of the family years ago.And we have photo's of a John H. MICHAEL, the forebear of the Kansas lines.
4.Sarah, married John Henry YOUNT, and secondly Gideon DINGER they too lived in the New Salem area in Armstrong Co. PA.
5.Eliza married Jacob H. SHICK, upon her death, at a young age,he then remarried to # 1 above.
6.Abbalonia "Abby" married Daniel DOVERSPIKE, a Civil War Veteran.They too lived in Armstrong Co. PA.
We have her German printed Baptism Certificate.The handwriting of the pastor is fairly clear except the way he made his Capital letter in the parents of her mother.It gives her mother's maiden name as KNERR, and states daughter of, it looks like G. & C. KNERR.Why couldn't Rev. YOUNG have written it out?The first initial is extremely hard to make out!Is anyone proficient in the old Script writings?
7.Catharina, died as a child
Samuel remarried Elizabeth (BROCIOUS) HUNGER/ SHAFFER.To whom he had one son:
8.Amos Grant MICHAEL, married Annie Maude BUFFINGTON.They lived in Baxter, PA.Seeking their descendants, anyone know of them?
