Ole, I'm sure you saw that I wrote SUSPECT, didn't you? Because, as I said, I didn't see the Ancestry record, but only went by what John wrote. He wrote of "born in Denmark, but later there is written Germany". And I explained which provinces that belonged to Denmark in 1851 became later German provinces, which is why I SUSPECTED, that John Scheel MIGHT HAVE BEEN born in Schleswig or Holstein.
If you reread my first paragraph you should be able to see with how much uncertainty I wrote all this.
