can anyone help with the parents of Helena/Elena/Elenor Shoefelt (or var spellings) that married Daniel Paddock c1781 - Kinderhook,Columbion Co. NY.
I have a bapt record for one child: Kinderhook Reformed Church #2912 Child: Catharina Birth Date: 04 May 1786 Bapt. Date: 28 Jan 1787 Parents: Daniel Paddock Helena Shoefelt Sponsor: Michel Shoefelt, & wife Catharina Shoefelt
This Michel is probably Johann Michel b c1744 the son of Johan Wilhelm b. 1707 (he the son of immigrant Johann George bp. 1659) - Michel may be the father of Helena - but Haven't found a Helena b 1762 among his children.
He and his first wife Catherine LNU had two dau's Anna Marie b c Dec 1763 Magdalena b c Feb 1766 This Catherine must have died before 1768 bc next child Catherine b Dec 1768 is the dau of Elizabeth BAckes/Backus.
