Does anyone have any information on the Pressel family in southern York PA? Specifically, I am looking for information on Michael Pressel (b. 1787) and a George Pressel (1814-1894). I believe George is Michael's son, but I've not been able to find any information to confirm or refute this.
I know that Michael Pressel Sr. (1741-1814) bought land from Daniel Utz in the the 1790s and moved to southern York County. He was resident in Heidelberg PA in the 1810 and later censuses. He had a son named Michael Pressel Jr. who was born in 1787. I have him in the 1810 census in Heidelberg (listed as Bressel) and then I believe I've found the same person in Frederick Co. Maryland in 1820 under the name Pressle. I believe that this Michael Pressel had a son named George Pressel (1814-1894) who appears in the 1840 Census in Heidelberg PA. The family was Brethren. Michael Pressel Sr. attended the Upper Connawago Church and George Pressel is buried at Wildasin Meeting House.
