hi, would love to see what you have dug up on the wrightsell clan, and yes they are scattered all over germany. not sure but i think the clan i am searching comes from westphalia.johannas adam rieghtsel sr.was born there in 1620. his son adam 2nd married margreat====.adam rightsel 3rd was born in 1751.now his adam married catherine morentze. they lived in richlands n.c. before moving to ramdoph co. where she remarried. it is believed that catherine came to america as an endentured servant from the palitine region of westphalia. just one question, which is correct adam george kobel or george adam because the birth dates are exact. aslo is the adam rightsel born in 1705 a member of this clan? which adam fell overboard on his way to america? do you have a cristian morentze anywhere and ifso who is his father?
