Inscription. In 1848, Johann Georg Michael, a stone mason, came from Fischborn, Baden, Germany, to establish a residence in East Hamburgh, New York. On his 80 acres, he grew fruit. In 1855, he married Caroline Reichert from Unterschefflenz, Baden, Germany. The large homestead, where they raised ten children, was razed with the construction of South-western Boulevard. Ella, age five, was buried on the farm in 1874, along with Johann in 1886. Caroline's will, in 1899, established "a cemetery for herself and her heirs forever."
