Jon here. Never heard anything about a priest in the family but I suppose it is possible. Although it is possible that they were Lutheran. I know many of the Germans that settled the area were Lutheran. We've exchanged some info already and I don't have much else. I did see a will in the Manistee county gen web though. It was for Wilhelmine (Minnie) Finedore. It references her husband Daniel and some of there children. I'm quite positive these were the parents of William and his siblings. We can discuss that more as well if you like?
