I'm quite familiar with the geography here. The problem is that the villages of Bottenweiler and Wildenholz are both in the Parish of Wildenholz, so children of both villages could be baptized in the same parish church, in Wildenholz. People living in small villages sometimes went to church in nearby larger villages; people don't necessarily live in the village where they were baptized. But the parents' names should be given with the records, so that should separate the children.
The problem is, this comes down to a case of "you said - he said." You say one thing, he says another. Neither of you has put the baptismal records themselves (transcribed, verbatim) online as proof of your claims. Do you have the records? Will you put them online? If, as you say, the records are not on microfilm, how did you acquire them? How may I acquire them? Do I have to go to Wildenholz?
If Simon Peter had a son Johann Michael and Johann Georg had a son Johann Michael, I presume there are baptismal records for the two sons and I presume each contains a birthdate and the names of the parents. The birthdates should thereafter separate the two Johann Michaels. If no one has the records, why is anyone asserting anything about Johann Michael's parentage?
Sorry to be a bit peevish, here, but the conflicting claims are frustrating. I'd like to know the bases of the claims, so I can decide which claims to accept.
