Michels in Pfalz and Hessen
Posted by: William Bossong (ID *****3460) Date: March 27, 2003 at 09:49:27

Hello. I've been reseaching my family history and have come to a wall on the Michel line. I'll post all that I know below. If anyone has any information taht may help, I would greatly appreciate your assistance.

My earliest known Michel ancestor is Joannes Michel. Johannes was born in Hessen (exact location and date unknow) and died November 05, 1750 in Schallodenbach, Pfalz, Bayern, Germany. He married Agnes Elisabeth (maiden name unknown) on June 12, 1714 in Schallodenbach, Pfalz, Bayern, Germany. Agnes was born 1673 (location unknown) and died February 01, 1766 in Schallodenbach, Pfalz, Bayern, Germany. She had a marriage prior to Johannes - Friedrich Zimmermann. Johannes and Agnes had at least 1 son - Peter.

Peter Michel's birth and deceased locations and dates are unknown (although I assume the locations are Schallodenbach, Pfalz, Bayern, Germany). He married Maria Margaretha Schaefer on August 27, 1737 in Schallodenbach, Pfalz, Bayern, Germany. Nothing more is known about Margaretha. They had at least 1 son - Johannes.

Johannes Michel's birth and deceased location and dates are unknown (although I assume the locations are Schallodenbach, Pfalz, Bayern, Germany). He was Christened on March 14, 1739/40 in Schallodenbach, Pfalz, Bayern, Germany. Johannes married Anna Barbara Guthy on June 18, 1771 in Schallodenbach, Pfalz, Bayern, Germany. Nothing more is known about Anna. They had at least 1 son - Franz Joseph.

Franz Joseph Michel was born August 23, 1773 (location unknown although I assume it is Schallodenbach, Pfalz, Bayern, Germany) and died January 01, 1840 in Schallodenbach, Pfalz, Bayern, Germany. He worked as a mason and married Susanna Rupp. Susanna died December 11, 1841 in Schallodenbach, Pfalz, Bayern, Germany. Nothing more is known about Susanna. They had at least 1 daughter - Phillipina.

Philippina Michel was born June 22, 1825 in Schallodenbach, Pfalz, Bayern, Germany. Deceased date and location are unknown. She married Jakob Bossong, son of Francoise Bossong and Elisabetha Madelaine Weiz. They had at least 2 sons - Philipp and Karl. It's possible there's a 3rd son named Jakob. Karl worked as a mason. Philipp and Karl immigrated to the US (Pittsburgh, PA) in 1880.

I know that Michel and Bossong are fairly common names in Schallodenbach. Actually, the current mayor of Schallodenbach is Hans Michel.

If you have any information about these individuals or possible relatives, I would appreciate the help.

Thanks,

Bill
