Catharine Miller, Lawrence / Beaver County, Pennsylvania
Posted by: lb79 (ID *****9020) Date: December 10, 2010 at 09:49:59
  of 1689

I am trying to figure out which Miller Family in Lawrence / Beaver County, Pennsylvania Catharine Miller belongs to.

Catharine was born Feb 16 1772 in PA. She died Nov 8 1842 In Lawrence County, Pennsylvania.

She married William Young Jan 27 1795 in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. William died Jan 16 1837 in Lawrence County Pennsylvania and is buried at Little Beaver Cemetery, Lawrence Co., PA.

Catharine and William had the following children:
William J.

I believe that Catharine was living in the Miller Young household during the 1840 census, after her husband died.

I have the following newspaper article relating to Catharine Miller Young:
The New Castle News Oct 4 1911 "He [Thomas H. Young] is a son of Miller Young and Ann Taylor Young, deceased, and his grandfather, William Young and his wife, Katherine Miller Young, settled in Beaver county on what is known as the McGeorge farm, about 1796, and in 1805 they moved to Little Beaver township, where he lived until his death, and the land has been in the name of the Youngs, ever since.
William Young, his grandfather, had a family of 10 children and his father Miller Young, 13 children, many of whom reside in the southwestern part of the county."

I also have this line of information: "Robert Andrews, Charles Rainey and William Miller were early settlers in the [Little Beaver] township. Miller settled on a branch of the Little Beaver, and built a mill."

I don't know if Catharine is related to that William Miller or not.

If anyone has any information connecting Catharine to any other Millers, I would appreciate your help. Or if you could tell me how I might find information, it would be appreciated.
