After the loss of JOHANNES JOST MICHEL, ANGELIKA and sons, JOHN, ADAM and GEORG, immigrated to America. GEORG MICHEL (age 17) came from Achenbach and entered the port of New York with his mother, ANGELIKA (age 55) and his brother ADAM (age 27) aboard the ship, "Minna" on 18 Oct 1852, sailing from Bremen, Germany. His brother, JOHN had entered the port of New York the previous year. They made their way to Rosehill, Harris County, Texas.
When CAROLINE and GEORG married, it was most likely that they resided with or nearby her brother, FREDERICK JUERGEN, who lived in Rosehill. GEORG was a member of SALEM LUTHERAN CHURCH in Rosehill, where he sponsored several children and his children's births are recorded in Salem's records. There have been many speculations as to the death of GEORG but no one knows for sure what happened as he was a good Christian man and very well liked. There was an explosion at the powder mill down on Spring Creek during the War Between the States but no record of him being there that day.
Being a member of Salem, it is presumed that Georg is buried in this cemetery.
