      The Muehlschlaegel family and its ancestral and intermarried lines benefit from extremely well-documented genealogical online research. The Davidson Family History researched and compiled by Adeline Christine Davidson Kraft and Alice Ament Davidson Gedge and the Genealogy of the Millslagle Family researched and compiled by Carol Macke are well sourced and incorporate the research of others, such as Janet Broadbent and Samuel Ruff who were some of this researcher's original collaborative resources in the 1990s. Janet Broadbent accomplished meticulous research in German records, thus extending our lines much further into the past. This researcher included their original work herein intact and eliminated much of my own which was only a small duplicative part of theirs. Using their material this researcher created a biography for many of our Muehlschlaegel, Emmert and Kamm ancestors. In most cases the children of our direct line ancestors had so many children in our indirect lines, and there were often so many proofs thereof, that rather than listing each one separately the children's data is summarized under their parents information; more data would be available on these lines if needed in the future, especially from the Davidson research.

This researcher has consistently use the spelling of the surname which was predominantly used in that generation, although the surname often appeared in many other manners. The most common anglicized variation of the Muhlschlagel name in this generation and the next was Millslagle, but Muehlschlaegel, Muehlschlagel, Muhlschlager, Milchladle, Millslagel, Milchlagel, Milchladel and Mulslagle were also used.

Johann Andreas “Andrew” Mühlschlägel was born in Lachen-Speyerdorf, Palatinate, Bayern, Germany and christened in the towns Reformed Church. Lachen and Speyerdorf were two villages, now grown into one, located in the wine region of Pfalz. He followed German naming customs and was known as Andreas. His godfather was Johann Andreas Riedinger, citizen and innkeeper, in the city of Neustadt in Mannheim.

Andreas was a Reformed schoolmaster in the town of Weidenthal, Germany, who was considered wealthy. He emigrated on 26 May 1750 from Weindenthal, Palatinate, Bayern, Germany. During this period, Palatinates needed to get permission to leave the area. His application to emigrate is in the records of Neustadt an der Weinstrasse, Palatinate State, Germany. This is the translated entry about him: "Andreas Mühlschlägel, Reformed schoolmaster, Weidenthal, permitted to go to Pennsylvania, but must pay the supplementary tax (Tenth Penny) on his property of 300 florins." David Schmitt and family as well as Johann Adam Wetzel from Weidenthal were also permitted to go to Pennsylvania and they arrived on the same ship as Andreas. Also arriving on the same ship were Jeorge Hamman, Johann Nickel Muller, Andras Muller, Daniell Miller, Johann Jacob Muller.

Andreas was found on a passenger list dated 11 Aug 1750 for the ship Patience landing in Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co, PA. The ship departed from Rotterdam, Netherlands; stopped in Cowes, England; and then continued to America. Andreas is rumored to have brought "his valuable violin which he could play so well, his Bible and his dreams." Before disembarking, he had to sign an Oath of Allegiance to the King of England and state he was not Catholic. Shortly after arriving in America, In 1750 he was recorded on the Philadelphia, PA census. Andreas lived in East Greenville, Montgomery Co, PA. His name is recorded as Millslagle, Muhlschlagel and Muhlschlegel during his initial immigration time frame.

Andreas was married by Rev. George Michael Weiss to Anna Maria circa 1752 when he was about 22 years old and she was about 18. During 1753-1769 while his family was expanding, Andreas and his wife lived in Richmond Township, Berks Co, PA where he used the name Andreas Millschlegel. Andreas is found on the tax list of Longswamp Township, Berks Co, PA in 1752 as Andreas Milshiegel. This part of Berks County was actually in Oley Township in 1752. Berks Co was created in 1752. Longswamp Twp was created in 1761 from Rockland Township, which was created in 1758 from Oley Township, which was created in 1740 while part of Philadelphia Co.

The Muhlschlagel family was recorded in a very brief German diary Andreas kept for the birth dates, birth locations and godparents of his children.

On 18 Mar 1763 Andreas and his wife Maria signed an agreement with his newly-widowed mother-in-law Maria Catharina (Kamm) Emmert where they promise they will take care of her. “Andreas Muhlschlagel and Maria Catharina Emertin, my mother-in-law, make an agreement that I, Andreas and my wife Anna Maria Muhlschlagerin and my heirs and descendants promise to take care of my mother-in-law in food and drink, cloths for Sundays and work days and all that she needs for living as long as she lives, but if she should by God's will become ill, I, Andreas Muhlschlagel, my wife Anna Maria and my heirs and descendants will care for her. For this care, I, Maria Catharina Emertin give my son-in-law Andreas Muhlschlagel 60 pounds cost money. To be given by the 15th of March 1763 a cow and two rabbits. Should by God's will one of us younger ones no longer be living, my mother-in-law shall have the right as given by this acort to use all power to demand her care and what is urgent for her living. However, I, Andreas Muhlschlagel, as I live or die am in the position to care for my mother-in-law according to this acort she will not ask for the gold back or the cow and rabbits not even if she is unsatisfied with the care. I, Andreas Muhlschlagel promise to care for my brother-in-law (first name indecipherable) Johannes and provide clothes and send him to school until he can read and write and I will have rights over him until he is 14 years all. All this we promise, Andreas Muhlschlagel and Anna Maria Muhlschlagerin and I, Catharina Emertin all that is written in this acort and to hold it true, this took place in Ritchmond on 18 Mar 1763. Wits. Jorg (unreadable), Philipp Emmert. Signed by Andreas Muhlschlagel, Anna Maria Muhlschlagerin (her mark), Catharina Emerthin (her mark). [Notes: “in” is added to women's last names to denote females and is not part of her actual name. “Ritchmond” refers to Richmond Township, Berks Co, PA. In 1763 Andreas' mother-in-law Maria Catharina (Kamm) Emmert has a son Jacob about age 12.]

In 1767 Andreas and Mary were taxed on 70 acres, 2 horses, two cows, and three sheep in Berks Co, PA. Among their neighbors were Daniel High, Conrad Kolb, David Comp, Theobald Keifer, George Ohl, and John Slegle; the Keifer family had intermarried with Mary's Emmert ancestors in Heidelberg, Germany in the early 1700s.

Sometime between 1768 and 1774 Andreas and Maria lived for a period near Emmittsburg, Frederick Co, MD. The Muhlschlagel family along with Jacob Emert moved to Hampshire Co, VA (later WV) in 1774; the Jacob Emert accompanying them was likely the boy Andreas had agreed to care for until age 14.

Despite stories of Daniel Loy encouraging the Muhlschlagel family to move, no evidence indicates the Muhlschlagels knew the Loys in Berks Co, PA or that Daniel "went back to East Greenwich" or anywhere else to bring his in-laws to Virginia. To do so Daniel would have had to have gone before 1772 and by the births of his children and the age of his wife it does not appear as if he married her until 1775, three years after the Muhslchlagels had moved to Virginia. Both families were likely part of a big move from Berks Co toward Frederick Co, MD.

Andreas and Mary purchased land on 7 Nov 1774 northwest of Winchester, VA along the Cacapon River in Hampshire Co, VA, which later became part of the newly formed West Virgina state. The deed in part read: "This Indenture, made the seventh day of November in the year of Our Lord, one thousand seven hundred and seventy four between Jonathan Pugh of the County of Hampshire of the one part and Andreas Milslagle of the said County." This deed was for a tract of 107 acres land granted to Evan Pugh, Jr. by deed under the hand of Right Hon. Thomas Lord Fairfax and by Evan Jr. conveyed to Jonathan Pugh in Feb 1764 "...between the North River and Big Capon, beginning at 3 white oaks on a stony ridge, granted by Thomas Lord Fairfax to Evan Pugh by deed 13 Apr 1752; another tract adjoining the former, beginning at two chestnut oaks in Evan Pugh's line at the foot of a hill, thence along his line . . . containing 160 acres, granted by Thomas Lord Fairfax to Andrew Millslagle 10 Oct 1774." This land was originally surveyed by George Washington. nIn Hampshire Co, Andreas and Mary were taxed in 1782 for 7 whites and in 1784 for 6 whites.

Rev Christian Streit, a chaplain who served during the American Revolution, began his Lutheran pastorate in 1785 and extended his circuit from Winchester, VA to minister to additional churches and private homes, including the Muehlschlaegel house on the Cacapon River in Frederick Co, VA. Rev Streit wrote in his diary that one of his congregations met at Mr. Horn's and Mr. Millschlegel's on the Cacapon River. He preached there six times" between 1785 and 1788. Researcher Grady Loy noted Andreas was likely also a circuit preacher in Virginia.

In Hampshire Co, VA (now WV) Andreas purchased an additional 421 acres on 26 Feb 1793 from Henry and Hannah Landers. It is unclear what happened to this land. Prior to his death Andreas deeded land to two brothers John Park and George Park who were his sons-in-law who had married his daughters Anna Maria and Hannah respectively and this may be that land.

On 20 Nov 1809 Andreas and his wife deeded their youngest son Jacob Millslagle their 267 acres for 470 pounds; the land was originally surveyed by George Washington in Hampshire Co, VA (now WV) and granted by Thomas Lord Fairfax to Andrew Millslagle on 10 Oct 1774. "This indenture made the twentieth day of November in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and nine between Andrew Millslagle and Mary his wife of the one part and Jacob Millslagle of the other part witnesseth that for and in consideration of the sum of four hundred and seventy pounds current money of Virginia to the said Andrew Millslagle and Mary his wife in hand paid by the said Jacob Millslagle at or before the sealing and delivery of these said presents the receipt whereof he doth hereby acknowledge and thereof doth release, acquit and discharge the said Jacob Millslagle, his executors and administrators by the presents the said Andrew Millslagle and Mary his wife have granted, bargained, sold, aliened, relaeased and confirmed and by these presents do bargain, sell, alien, reley ase and confirm unto Jacob Millslagle and his heirs the following described and specified lands of land one of which is bounded as followeth as by the original survey thereof made by George Washington viz . . .For good causes and valuable consideration do hereby convey, assign, transfer and release to the said Jacob Millslagle all his right, title and interest of in and to all the stock viz; cattle, horses and farming utensils and everything on said land and premised which can be designated personal property except the household furniture and all other personal property which may be mine or supposed to be mine is hereby conveyed to said Jacob Millslagle forever, and all houses, buildings, orchards, ways, waters, watercourses, profits, commodities, herediatments and appurtneances whatsoever to the said premises the reversion and reversions, remainder and remainders, rents, issues, and profits thereof and also the estate, right, titled interest, use, trust, property and demand whatsoever of them . . ."

Andreas was enumerated on the 1810 census for Hampshire Co as Andrew Milslagle, aged over 45 years old. Based on ages, it is likely the over 45 year old living with him was his wife Mary. After the census was taken, their son Jacob and his wife Elizabeth moved into their home “Sandy Ridge” in 1810. Andreas and Maria lived with Jacob until their deaths.

Andreas and Mary were buried in the Millslagle Burying Place on their farm in Hampshire Co, WV to be joined later by many of their descendants. The family cemetery is located on north of what is now Highway 50 on 50/22 road, west of Capon Bridge, Hampshire Co, WV.
