John Gerhardt Michelsen was my grandfather

  of 18

He came over when he was almost 3 years old from the german port of Bremen. From what I understand, his family lived in the area of Germany that is the neck, toward Holland. Maybe on the island of Fohr or just on the coast near there. He had no brothers or sisters except the girl they adopted.
He married Agrieta Kindervater, had 5 children. Lived in Perrysburg and/or Bowling Green Ohio. He was a farmer.
Children are Karl, Paul, Inez, Andrew and Elsie. All live in northwest Ohio.
