Anna Michel was born in 1835 and died in 1907. Much of her history has faded from this area. Two known children of Anna Michel were Margaretta Michel Kienholz and Jacob Michel. Jacob Michel had married Rosalia Matthys, daughter of Andrew Matthys, on 15 April 1888 at Sassin.
Records show her mother’s maiden name as Dellenbach. Rose died from consumption 17 Aug 1896 at the age of 32 years, having been born in Switzerland in 1864. Jacob had enrolled two children in School Dist #4 in 1902: Mary (age 15) and Willie (age 12). This family of four appears on the 1892 census. In 1903 “Jacob Michel, one of the prosperous north of town farmers, and Hermine Billing of Fiurlinger, Switzerland, were married in Spokane Wednesday. Jakie is one of the well known pioneers of this section and is extended the cordial congratulations of his many friends.” (Sprague Times-6 Nov 1903) Jacob Michel owned acreage in Sec 8 Twp 22 R 38 which was sold to a Kintschi. In 1903 Jacob Michel was one of the Trustees of the Sassin Church.
