I think my Phillip Michael is brother to your John Michael. Phillip Michael signed a love deed for Casper Michael to care for him in his old age. I have that Phillip was born in 1779 in Mongolia Co., Va m Mary Evans. I think Mary Evan's father is Jared Evans, Phillip inherited some land from him. I think possibly that Casper Michael and Johanna Fuch's marriage may have been when she was around 15 which isn't unheard of. But the marriage date is based upon their daughter Catherine Michael and it is only an estimate.It's also possible that they had more children that stayed in Virginia.
I know there is a book on the Michael's, I have not seen it. But the book is wrong.They have this Phillip Michael who married Mary Evans being born abt 1800. Phillip Michael's son. Phillip Michael Jr. was the one that was born abt 1800 and he married an Elizabeth. Phillip was also born in Mongolia County, VA.
Phillip and Elizabeth children are: Phillip Michael b 1824 m Mahala Beard, Sarah Michael b 1825 m James Shelton Voiles Jared Michael b 1833 m Lavina Fox. Rosanna Michael b 1835 m ? Silas Michael m ? Henry Michael, m an Inez which I think is his 2nd wife. They are buried at Patrick Cemetery in Decatur Co., Indiana. Ruth Michael b Jan 2, 1841 m William Henry Voiles b Jan. 6, 1844. both buried at Patrick Cem. (William Henry Voiles is half brother to James Shelton Voiles). Cynthia D. Michael b1848 and Mary Michael b 1849.
I think Phillip and Elizabeth also had more children because I have a gap between 1841 and 1848. It is possible if they did that these children died because they do not show up on the 1850 census.
