Michael was killed in the Capitol collapse. Reported missing, a search was made and he was found in a horribly mangled
position. He did not die until after he was removed from the rubble. He was a well-known German mason, and lived at 743
Williamson Street. His son Matthew (1866 - 1935 buried at Resurrection Cemetery
) was also injured, but survived.
