Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 415, West Point Township, White County, Indiana

"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."
