Within my publication, is the family of Frederick MICHEL & Ursula (WERHEIM) HAIN, who lie buried at Trinity Tulpehocken Cemetery in now Lebanon County, PA.
Among their children was a son: George, b. 16 July 1788, whom I believe per my findings md. one Catharine KREUTZER.Could this be your ancestors??
I too found a George MICHEL & wife Anna Maria (nee??) who had a son Johnannes, b. 13 Nov. 1785 and baptized at the Altalaha Evangelical Lutheran Church, Rehrersburg, PA.
There too seems to have been one George MICHEL in the areas of Northumberland & Dauphin County, PA.I do not know if he is the brother to my Christian MICHAEL, II, and his brother William or just whom the man was!As you say, it's perplexing and I found little on the man!
Here's another possibility for you.Johann "Jacob" MICHEL & Wife, Anna Margaretha (SCHERER) immigrants, amongst the title of my publication [ brother of my Ulrich] had a son George Philip MICHEL, born I estimate about 1732 as the parents were married in 1730.
If interested send me your complete e-mail and I'll send you literature on the books that I wrote.
