Emily J. Miller

Looking for info on Emily J. Miller. In 1890, James F. Miller of Montgomery County, VA left a will naming one of his sisters, Lizzie Morehead (the former Elizabeth Miller). Elizabeth married Andrew Morehead in 1854 in Montgomery County. In a note written in the margin of the will, Emily J. Miller was named as the only heir of Lizzie Morehead. The note was made by the executor of Emily J. Miller's estate and was dated 1947.

In 1898 (also in Montgomery County), the will of Emily C. Morehead, a sister of James F. Miller and Lizzie Morehead, also named as one of her heirs an Emily J. Miller of Bland County, Va.

I'm thinking that since sisters Emily C. Morehead and Lizzie Morehead were formerly Millers, and Emily J. Miller was an heir to both, she was somehow related. Any info would be appreciated.
