Millers from Sweetwater Tn to Al and Ga

I am looking for information on the family of my husband's 2great-grandfather. He was Andrew L Miller born 3-9-1809 in Tn or Va, died 8-27-1865, buried in the Cornelius Burke Cem. in Screven Co Ga. He was listed in the 1850 Wilkinson Co Ga census as a railroad manager. His wife was Priscilla Harris of Madisonville Tn, daughter of George Carroll Harris and Sarah McCray. He had a brother Drury b 1822 Tn died 1888 in Pickens Co Al, buried in the New Bethany Cemetery there along with his wife, Julia Long.Drury is listed in the 1860 thru 1880 Pickens Co censuses. I also have William Miller b 1811 Tn died 1873 or 1877 Screven Co Ga, also buried in the Cornelius Burke Cemetery. I found him in the 1870 Screven Co census.

Andrew's children were John L, Drury, Eglentine, Mary, Delphina, Eliza J (married a Howell), George Washington, William Thomas, Andrew Jackson, David S, and James P Miller. One daughter married William Cory. Some of these children are found in the 1870 and beyond Screven or Bulloch Co censuses, also some in Chatham Co Ga.

Drury's children were Richard W, Mary (married Henry A. Binford), Rosalie (married John W. Coleman), Fannie, and Annie Miller. The first three were living in Anniston, Calhoun Co Al at time of Drury;s death in 1888. Drury owned land in the Screven Co Ga area.

I don't have any information on a family for William, but he did name a Daniel and a Magna Miller in his will, as well as his brother Andrew's children.

Any information about this family would be greatly appreciated.
