I have posted messages in the past and received some interesting input, butnone of which has cleared the air as to whom Philip Michael was married. There are some who believe that he was married to Anna Margaretta (Lorentz). This information I obtained from a researcher at the Garrett Co., MD historical society researchers list. Others feel he was married to someone named Mary whose name appears in his will. There are some who think Philip's middle name was not Jacob. There are some who say that nothing you find on line is reliable. (that too is the case with history books written by humans). I have been told not to rely on the LDS sites because the information they give is not reliable(although they alone were my starting point). I am up to a good debate. All I want is historial fact. As far as Philip Jacob Michael is concerned it is possibe that he was married twice. I accept that. It is also possible that his middle name is not Jacob, although I don't know why it has been recorded that way. No matter what I keep finding this man's children as being the same regardless. Please help me find the key to resolving this. There is room for several theories as to who he was, where he came from,who all he was married to. No one seems to know whereAnna Margaretta was buried. Could Mary have been a name she was called by? Who were Anna Margaretta's parents and who were Mary's. Help!!!!! Thanks in advance, Jacque
