Hi,

I am a descendant of Michael via Fredrick. Catherine's last name is Bechtel not Briesacher and, you are correct in your correction stating that the children were born in Germany. Michael didn't want his sons to have to serve in the German army so he moved the family to New York and then to Princeville, Illinois. :)
