    Why there might be more than one child in a family with the same first name.

  • Notes 
    • Church records quoted by William Hinson say he "immigrated to the British Colonies in America." However, the translation my not be "immigrated" but passed over (ie. died). There is considerable doubt if he came to America. [1]
    • The only evidence of George Michael "Michael" Ohler is the father of Christian Eller is William Hinson's book.
      There are some who believe he is the son of Casper Eller, and brother to John Jacob and Melchoir Eller.
      I suspect that he is a cousin to these two immigrants who are sons of a George Kasper Eller, who in turn, I believe is the brother to George Michael "Michael" Ohler.
      Hinson's book lists three George Ellers as brothers to George Michael (probably with different middle names) who are candidates to be George Kasper Ohler.
