Hi Stephanie!  Take a look at this!! .......

https://niblettjohn.tribalpages.com/tribe/browse?userid=niblettjohn&view=9&ver=40305

I found it last night (late) and if you look for David Michael you can see the first page of his written will!!  I guess I was expecting it to be typewritten (as I knew it was available for purchase), but then, typewriters did not exist back then! ... can you imagine writing this with pen/ink via candle light?  Very very difficult to decipher, if you enlarge, makes it a bit easier.
Think some of the dates are incorrect? .... but very interesting nonetheless!
Enjoy!
Susan

"Many thanks.  As you say, the handwritten Will is very difficult to read even with enlargement.  Just read a message from Rootschat that I can exchange email addresses via pm, just don't put them on the public boards.  Click on the icon under the poster's details that looks like a letter."  Not sure where this is so will continue exploring.....

I have extensive well-organized material on the Hart family (that includes the Michael family) but don't know how to communicate individually to members of the family.  Please advise.

Hello dkahn,
I was so excited when I saw your posting!  I too have done extensive research on the Michael family, as my Grandmother's name was Florence Michael related to the Michael's from Swansea, Wales.  I have been researching for about a year, the furthest I can trace back is to David Michael, who married Rachell Griffiths.  I'm curious to know if you have any pictures and if you know anything further about David who was born 1727 or Rachell? 
Also, how are you related to this family?
Thank you so much for reaching out,
Susan

My great grandmother was Annie Teacher.  Her mother was Maria Selig whose mother was Hannah Wolff, whose mother was Eddle Hart.   So Eddle Hart was my great great, great, great grandmother. I believe she was Lemon Hart's aunt and I think you would be related on the Hart side - ultimately Abraham Hart.   Do I have it right?

I am also a direct descendant of the Harts and Mike would be interested in comparing notes.  (I am descended from Eddle Hart, Lemon's aunt as far as I can tell).

Sorry, I just saw your reply just now.  Are you referring to David Michael born 1727 in Germany?
