Not my family line, just sharing.

"CHRISTIAN MILLER was born in Wurtemberg, Germany, October 28, 1839, and is one of the six children of GEORGE and MAGDALENA (FETTER) MILLER; of these children, MARY CHRISTIAN, and ELIZABETH only survive. The father of CHRISTIAN was also born in Wurtemberg in 1799, was a farmer and died in Hancock County, Ohio, in 1869. CHRISTIAN landed at New York in 1853, where he remained three years; thence journeyed to Hancock County, Ohio, and to his present location in 1868. On April 1, 1863, he was married to CATHERINE FULTON, by whom he had nine children - CHARLES, EMMA, FLORA, FRANK, ELIZABETH, ALBERT, LEWIS, CLARA and MARTHA. MR. MILLER resides six and one-half miles south of Wolcott, on a fine farm of 267 acres (forty being timber and eight miles north). His chief crops are corn, oats, rye and clover; he also makes a specialty of stock raising. Out of the trackless prairie, MR. MILLER has wrought this farm by industry. He was formerly a Methodist, but is now an active Presbyterian, having contributed to the organization known as the Meadow Lake Church. He attributes his success to diligence and economy, and is a worthy and respected gentleman."
