Land at Wesel was purchased from Claes Romeyn and Jacob Symonse van Winkle. He did not dispose of his entire holding in the Acquackanonk Patent, as in the Boght division he owned the 'Drie Hoek' (lot one, West) which was in the neighborhood of the Paterson Iron Works, and at least one other lot which he said 'lays between Simeion Van Winkle's Land and the Bought aforesaid.' His will bequeathed those two lots to his daughter, Beletje. At the time of his death, Michiel still possessed the land at Reckpokus.

To his son Hartman he bequeathed 12 pounds to bar his primegeniture. The will contains the provision 'It is my will & Desire that every unmarried Child of mine shall receive out of my Estate a compleat out sett on the day of their Marriages,' and also 'desiring them to see these presents duly & Faithfully Complyed to & Performed ordering and directing that if any of my children should attempt to take advantage of any Imperfestion herein by Law or otherwise it then is my Positive order & Direction he she or they be utterly and totally Excluded from any and every part or persell of my whole Estate & to be deemed as Refractory.'
The will seems to have been signed a year after it was first dated. It was set aside under English law of primegeniture the eldest son, Hartman, became vested with all testator's lands, The will is recorded in Liber L, page 266, office of Secretary of State, NJ. Nelson page 117.
