Maud Bauer Miller Letter
I have been going through many old letters and journals that belonged
to my g-grandmother, Maud Bauer Miller who lived in Perryton, Perry
Licking County and is buried with her husband Lebbeus Dunn Miller, son of
Joseph Miller and Elizabeth Custer, in the Perryton Cemetery. I came
her notes that she had written for a presentation at the Frazeysburg
in 1936. Thought you or someone might find it interesting.
This is a portion that she had written. "IN 1817, ELIZABETH GLASCOCK
LEMERT, THE WIDOW OF LEWIS LEMERT,EMIGRATED TO PERRY TOWNSHIP, LICKING
OHIO. SHE WAS THE OWNER OF A LARGE TRACT OF LAND HERE, AND WITH HER SIX
SONS, BEVERLEY, LABAN, LEROY, THADDEUS, ABNER AND FERDINAND AND HER ONLY
DAUGHTER MINERVA (WHO LATER MARRIED WM. BROWN) AND SEVERAL OF THEIR
EMIGRATED FROM THE SHENANDOAH VALLEY IN VA. THEY TRAVELED IN COVERED
OVER THE SHENANDOAH TRAIL. PASSED THROUGH THE FERTILE VALLEYS TO THE
WHERE THE MENDENHALLS AND BLIZZARDS HAD ALREADY CLAIMED LARGE GRANTS OF
LAND, OVER THE ROCKY BALD HILLS UNTIL THEY REACHED THE UPLAND VALLEYS,
BY BRUSHY FORK AND WAPATOMICA CREEKS. HERE THE 42 YEAR OLD WIDOW LEMERT

NORTHWEST CORNER OF THE TOWN PLOT FOR A SCHOOL SITE, BUILT A LOG DISCIPLE
CHURCH ON THE SOUTHWEST CORNER OF HER OWN BLOCK OF LOTS. ALSO ESTABLISHED
A BURYING GROUND ABOVE THE SCHOOL SITE, AND GAVE IT TO THE TOWN FOR "AYE".
HER OWN YOUNG SON THADDEUS WAS THE FIRST ONE BURIED THERE. SHE BUILT THE

Another exerpt read....HORACE FAIRALL, FATHER OF HYATT, GRAFTON,AND WESLEY
FAIRALL , WAS ONE OF THE EARLIEST PIONEERS TO THIS AREA. GRAFTON FAIRALL
MARRIED HANNAH CUSTER, DAUGHTER OF JACOB CUSTER AND ELIZABETH "BETSY"
LEATHERMAN. JACOB CUSTER WHO SETTLED NEAR ELIZABETHTOWN ON THE SHENANDOAH
TRAIL ABOUT 1820 WAS KILLED BY HIS HORSES RUNNING AWAY ON THE OLD
ROAD. HE OWNED A LARGE TRACT OF LAND BOTH IN MUSKINGUM AND LICKING COUNTY
ON THE "RIM".
My g-g grandfather Joseph Miller went to Elizabethtown in 1827 - died
there in 1891. The Custers were there too. I have tried for over two years
to locate information on my family. If you ever come across any of these
names I would love to hear from you. Many thanks. It is written in my
handwriting for her speech to those in attendance at the Frazeysburg
Festivities, Frazeysburg, Muskingum County, Ohio. It is dated August 27,
28, and 29, 1936.
