Jennifer, My mother was a Speich. Her father and grandfather were both named Tobias Speich who lived in Nebraska. The grandfather Speich came from Switzerland, Canton Glarus. The elder Tobias had a brother named Emmanual and a nephew that came with them named Melchior Figi. They apparently all came from Luchzingen, Canton Glarus.Unfortunately, I do not know of Micheal Speich but really wonder if we are not related somehow.
