This sure sounds like the same Norman Michels family you went to church with.
Harvey was Norman's father's name - it would make perfect sense for him to name his son after his father.
I am hoping to track down Norman's obit to gather the family details - the death listed in Wayne County is the only likely 'fit', based on location and birth year.
I have a photo of Norman taken about 1920 with his mother and father and the last info I have after that is the 1930 census - he wasn't married at that time. (I connect thru his mother's Stafford's side of the family).
With the info you provided, I checked and see a current listing for a:
Harvey G Michels
804 W Water St
Fairfield, IL 62837
Would this sound about right to you? I believe Fairfield is also Wayne Co.
Thanks! - Kay, FL
