Have anything on these Millers?
John and Mary had 10 children that I know of: Sarah @1829 and Susan @1831 according to census data were born in NC. The next oldest Mary shows on the census records as being born in Tenn @1837. Martha @1833 in Greeen Co Tenn. Martha's death record says John and Mary were both born in Yancey NC. Next child Jacob born @1836 in Tenn and Andrew @1838 in Tenn. Next Hiram said to have been born in Johnson Co Tenn @1842. Thomas @1844 in Tenn. Hannah said to have been born in Washington Co Tenn @1847. And last John B born @1849 in Virginia.
Hannah's birthplace may be incorrect as John and Mary land in Virginia and were said to have been from Washington co but does not indicate Va or Tenn in the land transaction.
I also found a land purchase by a John Miller in Washington Co Va in 1835 which would mean some of the birthplaces of the children are incorrect. And bought land in Lee co Va in 1837. The 1850 census finds them still in Lee co and by 1880 in Letcher Co KY. John and Mary disappear off the records between 1880- 1889. Sarah and Susan disappear from the census records between 1850-60 but cannot find marriage records.
Martha's death record said she was born in Yancey County No Carolina and her parents were as well. A Jacob Miller appears in Yancey County in 1870 - any info on this one or the above?
