In Reply to: Increase Miller, b. 1779, d. 1848, Unadilla Center by Michael Miller of 1120

Increase Miller is buried without a wife. I was in the Unadilla Center Cemetery on February 20th, 2002. In this beautiful small hilltop cemetery the largest monument is the 'Miller' obelisk. On its left are four graves:
Increase Miller June 18, 1779 - June 22, 1848
Lyman Saxton, son of John B. and Abbie A. Miller
Sept. 6, 1848 - May 8, 1849
John Budd Miller Jan. 8, 1805 - July 14, 1868
Abbie Ann Finch, wife of John Budd Miller,
July 19, 1818 - Dec. 1?, 1893

This information is also in the book "At Rest in Unadilla", by S. B. Goerlich, 1987. She provides the following quote from "Historical Unadilla", p. 31,
John Butt Miller "...came from New Canaan Ct in 1827 with his family, bought land near Unadilla Center, children 'Linn', Dr, R. E. Miller of Oxford, Adeline (Mrs. D. M. Ferry) and Sherman R. Mrs. Ferry's husband was the well-known seedsman and the Ferry family have their summer home on this property."
The book gives the 1850 US Census:
John B. 45 farmer $2000 born NY
Abby A. 40 born CT
Robt. E. born CT
Adeline E. 9 born NY
Christopher C. 4 born NY
Betsey E. M. 30 born NY

Thanks for leading me to this wonderful cemetery and our ancestors.
