Searching for information, ancestors and descendants of Vincente MICHELI, b. about 1760 - 1778 in Brecia, Italy. Vincente's parents were Juan MICHELI, AND Lucrecia Unknown. Would be interested if there is any further info on this family in Italy.
In an excerpt From "The Italian Experience In Texas" by Cavalier Valentine Belfiglio:
VICENTE MICHELI was among the first Italian merchantes to settle in Texas. A native of Brescia, he arrived in Nacogdoches in 1793. After 1806, MICHELI moved to San Antonio where he became quite prosperous. He owned the Rancho de San Francisco, and later opened a general mercantile store. MICHELI died in his adopted city of San Antonio in 1848.
My line is as follows;
'Don' Vincente Micheli
Jose Vincente Micheli
Hosea "Rock" Vencente Meshell
Georgia Meshell (my grandmother) who married Jesse Robert RATLIFF / RATCLIFF / RADCLIFF
Willing to share what info I have on this line.
