Neither the accepted Michael family rendition on Christopher nor Mr. Fry's proposal is air-tight leaving the questions over his parentage open.
Jerry Michael, now close to 80, owns the Middle Farm, a large part of the ancient Cooling Springs Farm settled in 1768 by Andrew Michael (Andreas Michel), ostensibly Christopher's younger brother. Jerry Michael's written family tree and oral tradition hold that he descends from Christopher who descends from Franz Ludwig Michael who in 1707 explored and mapped the area where these two farms are located.
Swiss civil records should clear this up.
