GEORG MICHEL was born February 14, 1835 in Achenbach, Hessen-Darmstadt Province; Christened on February 15, 1835 at the Evangelisch, Breidenbach, Hessen-Nassau, Prussia and died about 1863 in Harris County, Texas. He married CAROLINE JUERGEN March 6, 1859 in Rosehill, Harris County, Texas; licensed obtained in Harris County, Texas under names George Mitchell and Caroline Juergen. Marriage was solemized by Evangelical Lutheran Congregation in Rosehill by Pastor G. Woerner.

CHILDREN of GEORG AND CAROLINE are:
HENRY, who married MARIA THERESE ZUBE; CHRISTINE, who married CARL HIRSCH; and JOHN, who married ALWINE KIESLING.

SIBLINGS OF GEORG ARE: Johann Henrich Michel (1818); Eva Michel (1821); Adam Michel (1825); Johannes Michel (1831); Johann Jacob (1841).
All children were baptised in the Evangelisch, Breidenbach, Hessen-Nassau, Prussia.

PARENTS: JOHANNES JOST MICHEL born 14 Feb 1793 in Simmersbach; died 16 Apr 1835 in Achenbach, Hessen-Darmstadt Province and wife, ANGELIKA WAGNER, born 12 Feb 1818 in Achenbach, Darmstadt-Hesse Province. She is the daughter of JOHANN HEINRICH WAGNER and wife, ROSINA WAGNER.

GRANDPARENTS: JOHANNES JOST MICHEL born 1 Oct 1773; died 1 June 1810 in Simmersbach; married CATHARINA THEIS on 26 Apr 1792 in Simmersbach; born 26 Apr 1792 in Simmersbach; died 4 Oct 1834 in Simmersbach.

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.
