Have a John M. Michaelis from Germany 1800's; with 13 brothers and sisters-John Christopher(my ancestor),Ella, Emma, Martha,Minnie, Edward, Herman,Bertha is all that I have...John M. married Ernestina; John C. married Minnie Heppner. All changed their name to Michaels except Herman. Some of them lived in the Chicago area. I have Minnie Wagner and Ella Brooks as married names of two of the daughters. Hope this helps us both.
