Michael Family Genealogy Forum
The following is all I have so far on Michael's in Illinois.
Daniel Michael was born 3-20-1845 in either IL (according to some family information) Highland, Lake County, Indiana. The Indiana birthplace comes from information on some papers dated 1915 pertaining to his Civil War pension. These papers have been my greatest source of information for him. There was some remembrance by a granddaughter that he might have been an orphan and was adopted but she wasn't sure.
He married Elizabeth Scott (b. 3-4-1849, Mattoon, Cole County, IL) 2-20-1866 in Prairie City, Cumberland County, IL
