THE MILLER FAMILY


The information I have on the Miller's is limited, but I have recently added some new information received from various sources. While they may be connected to our family, I have not yet found the connection of Ann Miller 1811-1814 who married Michael Archer 1809-1876 and Amos Miller who married Elizabeth Houston. The latter had 12 children. Our ancestor is Oatha Miller who was the father of Elizabeth Miller. Elizabeth married Sampson Shoults.
