Any tie ins with a Wendel Miller ,PA ,b. abt 1837? Married Elizabeth Williams. His son, John Ellsworth was born abt 1875. I was wondering if an offspring was related to John Ellsworth. He was my GGF and family has always said he was Indian. My GF, his siblings, my Uncles and their sons look very Indian (dark skin, brown eyes, straight jet black hair,..)The family says he was Cherokke, but told children if anyone asked, they were "American", no mention of Indian blood was to be made. I found it interesting that although he was a miner (therefore, underground for most of day), on his WWI Draft Registration, a comment was made that his skin was "dark brown". Tks
