The Melle Family of Michigan

Updated November 9, 2000

About Our Family Research

We have traced our family back to Hamburg, Germany. My great- great grandfather, George Alexander Melle, settled in Capetown, South Africa around 1840. His son Charles Albert Melle, my great-grandfather, arrived in the US around 1860. He married and set out with his wife's family to eventually settle in Belding, MI. We have traced Charles' family back to South Africa and most of his family still lives there. We have been trying unsuccessfully to trace George Alexander. We believe he was born in Hamburg, Germany to Johann von Melle. Our family has a reunion every year on the last Sunday in July. It is held in Six Lakes, Mi. where my grandfather Frank Melle made his home for many years. All of the Melle family members who attend are descendants of Charles Melle.
