There seem to be two early Miller Families in Greene & Washington Counties that have
not been identified as such to this date. I feel that one is German and the other is of
English or Irish in origin.
There is a statement handed down in my family that may be of significance. It was
related in this manner:
From Elizabeth Miller Shutlz b. 1-27-1786 to Elizabeth Shultz Gordon b. 10-16-1812 to Lucy
Meighen Porter b. 1883 to James B. Meighen b. 4-21-1915 (Elizabeth Miller Shultz
says) "My father and three of his brothers fought in the Rev. War." It might be one
of these early families together. Four brothers in the Rev. War.
