Michael Schiele

Michael Schiele was my 2X great grandfather. I have been working on tracing his descendants for over 20 years. The following lineage only contains his children and grandchildren. As several of his great grandchildren are still living, I will not be posting the subsequent generations online at this time.

As with previously posted lineages, my goal is not to tell the stories of these individuals but to place them within the family for other researchers and for my DNA cousins. The information in this lineage has been previously published in a paper I wrote for my ProGen study group in 2015. Ultimately, when I am finished with the WWII project, I hope to devote more time to telling the stories of these individuals (hopefully in a published book). I have a wealth of information about Michael, once he moved to America. However, very little is known about his origins in Germany, including his birthplace, with sources contradicting one another, using either Wittenberg and Württemberg as his place of origin. These are distinct cities in different regions in Germany. Chances are Michael did not come from either location, but from a smaller village in the surrounding area, which makes locating German records very difficult at this time. Three additional clues to Michael’s origins are: his brother John also emigrated to the United States, both men were taught the trade of shoemaking, and Michael was the third son of Michael and Mary (Smith) Schiele.

Currently, no direct evidence has been discovered linking Mary Magdalena Miller to the family of David and Mary A. (Moser) Miller. Indirect evidence suggests that there may be a connection between Mary and the Millers. On the 1860 census, the household of David and Mary Miller was enumerated directly after the household of Michael Schiele. The names of Michael and Mary Schiele’s children are similar to those of the family of David and Mary Miller and their children: Reuben, Jacob Henry, Lovina, Susanna and Catherine. While Mary Magdalena’s birth would fit neatly between Susanna and Catherine Miller, an eleven year old Mary was not among those enumerated with the Miller family in 1850.

The Mennonite cemetery appears to have been active into the 1880s and later. The Greenwell Cemetery in Clay City where Michael, Elizabeth, and several of their children were buried contains burials from the 1880s, and a few from the 1870s. It is also possible that Henry left Clay City after 1880, and died elsewhere.
