Michael was orphaned at the age of 7. His guardian was Thomas Franck, a member of the council in Lichtenstein, as had been his father. His father's inheritance was eventually divided into seven portions. His father's property in the Mülsen area was sold by this guardian, probably to pay for the living expenses of his ward.

On 7 Aug 1636 he bought the late Wolf Münch's garden in Mülsen St. Jacob for 55 Gulden. But due to the difficulties caused by the Thirty Years' War, he had difficulty paying the amount over time as agreed, so on 2 Jan 1653 he and his heirs renegotiated the payments, which were then successfully completed in 1662.

He appears as a baptismal sponsor in Mülsen St. Jacob four times from 1651 to 1663.

He was mortally wounded by two murderers in the woods, who slit his throat.
