Pressels of Southern York County

Surnames: Pressel, Utz
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.

Regards
Mike
