My father is Patrick Pischel born in Lansing MI to Edward Pischel. Dad says his great grandfather was beheaded in the late 19th century for revolutionary activities. I would like to find some history on this plus some contact with my Pischel relatives. We're the only Pischel's I can find in the US and am curious. Both grandparents are dead but Edwards wifes name was Helen Burnett Pischel and they lived in MO.
