Jayne, I believe you are looking for the same family as I am. This is my wife's family. The 1881 Canada Census shows Michael Pfahler married to Margaret with the same children minus Frank and Charles who were born later. They lived in Maidstone, Ontario, Canada. Michael was 44 in 1881. I would love to get any info from Germany as well. Michael's son George (1865) married Cora Bauer.Their son William (1895) married Rena Anna Randall(1903) at St. Anne Tecumseh 17 Nov 1925. Their daughter Bernice is my wife's mother. The 1881 Canada Census is online at www.familysearch.org, look at the left side of the home page. Maybe you have information that can help me as well.
