I've been able to trace my Miller tree back to 1810. My father is William E. Miller Sr (born in Tyrone, Pa), my grandfather was Frank K. Miller (born in Tyrone, Pa, died in Ohio), my great-grandfather was Nicholas Miller (born in Williamsburg, Pa, died in Tyrone, Pa), my great-great grandfather was Joseph Miller (born in 1843, Pa), and my great-great-great grandfather was John Miller (born 1810, Huntingdon County, Pa, died in 1873, Williamsburg, Pa). This is where I'm stuck right now. We believe either John Miller's father is John Miller also who is the son of a Samuel Miller from Ireland/Scotland (we have no proof right now). If anyone has information on them I would appreciate any info on them. Thank you.

John David Miller
Sadly, I can only trace my surname back to 1910, to my Grandfather, who was adopted at birth by a family called Miller, and given their name. He was brought up as a child in Ancoats, Manchester, then moved to Cumberland as it was then, living in various places, ending his days in Workington, which is where I was born. My Grandfather, Father and myself, are all John Miller. My Father was Mayor Of Workington 1969-70.
Hi John, I am tracing a family of Miller's in Ancoats as well. There is a lot of John millers in the family too. When was your Grandfather born? do you know the names of his adoptive parents at all or what street they lived? Is he on the 1911 census?

I am Charles E. Miller, Jr. and I live in Chesapeake, Virginia. Eight generations back I am a descendent of Jonathan Miller, Sr. who purchased one thousand acres of land in Bertie County, North Carolina. Jonathan spelt his name two ways: one was "Miller" and the other was "Millar." Some people say he was German; however, Millar is Scottish. What do you say?
I'm a Sydney, Australia Miller. :)
I probably have some distant relatives on your great continent. There is Youell, Beatty, Woods, Miller, McDonald, Stockton and Harmon in my blood. And just yesterday I was walking through Sydney using Google Earth. Cheers.
It's ironic that my surname Miller was given to my paternal grandfather who immigrated from Lithuania through Ellis Island while I have just discovered that I am actually related to the true Millers through my great-great-grandmother on my mother's side.
My Great Grandfather is a Miller, he migrated to the US. in the 1920's from Prince Edwards inland,Ca. I've been told some of the Millers still live there and some moved around the Windsor,Ont.Ca. area.

Please revisit this name. Medieval English farmers (500-1450) didn't grow corn or visit corn millers. Corn was first discovered in Cuba and exported to Europe by Christopher Columbus on his first (1492) or second (1494) visit to the New World.
Marjorie, In England we call Wheat "Corn" hence the "Corn Exchanges" you find in most English country/rural market towns. What you're calling corn we call Maize. The article is therefore correct in the terms it's using but perhaps should have added the term "wheat" to avoid pan-Atlantic confusion. :) I'm a Suffolk, UK Miller.
I am John of the Scottish Millers, I was born in Alabama, USA to James Miller. His grandfather is also James Miller as is my son. We tend to reuse the same names.

Our name is everywhere in the European world. I am a Scotch-Irish Miller/Millar. My father was born in Bertie County, North Carolina near the town of Colerain. It was named after Coleraine, Northern Ireland. My grandmother Miller was Essie Cowan. That is Scotch-Irish also. Miller is related to Mueller in German and in Latin is Molindarius. May all of you have a Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays.
