Michael Arthur Fell born 1849 supposedly Tiffen Ohio, Can't find birth record

+3 votes
Michael  Arthur Fell born 1849, supposedly in 1849. He lists Tiffin, Ohio as Birth place. I have already checked with local Ohio lib and they have no record. I know he married Barbara Kautz in 1873. He moved to Detroit Mich in 1870. I am looking for his father, Jacob or John Jacob from Wittenburg Germany. I need true mother's name for Michael and correct birth place.

I also need to know when Jacob Fell was born, immigrated to USA and his parents.

1860 US Census Big Spring, Seneca, Ohio. Seneca is same county as Tiffin is located. Seem to be living with older brother and sister. Jacob and Dorathy born in W├╝rttemberg, which was an indepedent kingdom at the time, now part of Germany.  Per the census, Jacob seems to young to be Michael's father.

Good hunting!
