The Nagel Family, on the maternal side, direct descendants of Thomas Brigham, pilgrim immigrant to the new world, arriving in 1635 aboard the "Susan and Ellen". Our Brigham ancestors went on to be pioneer settlers of Michigan. Other direct Colonial relations include William Ballard, John Burleigh, Benjamin Butterfield, George Lanphere, Richard Pratt, George Weeks, Rev. Ralph Wheelock and others still being researched. On the paternal side we are descendants of German immigrants, arriving in the late 1800's and settling in Clark County Wisconsin. I'm looking to save not only the names and the dates but the history as well. I hope you can find something here that helps you with your quest.
