I have both Millers and Bleeks in my files. The families are in Defiance and in neighboring counties.
John Kniseley (c. 1800) married to Margaret Miller of Baden, Germany. Known children: John, Jacob,(these two are probably John's by a previous marriage) Henry, Washington, Aaron, Valentine, Wesley, and Elizabeth.
Valentine's second wife was (Sarah) Ellen Miller Drew.
Henry married Maria Langdon and had Henrietta, Gertrude, John S., Birt, Sarah, Jacob,Pearl,and Oley.
Pearl married Ora F. Bleeks in Defiance in 1904. Ora was born in St. Joe, Indiana to William C. Bleeks and Elsie Gill. At the time of Ora's marriage to Pearl, he was living in Defiance and his occupation was listed as "electrician."
Birt married Amanda Hill. Amanda had three brothers, John, James, and Richard. Either John or Richard had a daughter who married Donald G. Miller. This is from an entry in my grandmother's funeral book in 1941.
If any of this sounds familiar, please contact me. I would be happy to share what I have on these people.
