Do you know if your Andrew was from the same family in Germany that the
Michael Miller who has so many descendants in the Brethren church in
Ohio and Indiana? Michael was born in 1792 in Steinweinden and
immigrated into Maryland in 1727, settling and eventually joining either
the Brethren church at Conococheague, if not earlier at Little Conewago.
In the very early 1800s, near 1800, his descendants migrated into
Kentucky and Ohio.

Thank you,

Roberta Estes

From another member of Black Rock who is descended from the Miller
family:
(This traces a little of the history of some present day Millers at
Black
Rock.)
On p. 28 of the Gleim book, "On Dec. 3, 1740, Andrew Miller (1716 - )
arrived in America aboard the ship Samuel. A son of the original Andrew
Miller was
also named Andrew (1745-1776) of "Catorus Township". (Codorus) "Andrew's
will
was filed in court on Jan. 3, 1777 ... One of the children, Andrew, Jr.

(1762-Oct. 12, 1835). On p. 77 "Andrew Miller became an exhorter for
the Little
Conewago congregation (later Upper Codorus, & later Black Rock...) On
Oct. 29,
1785, he married Anna Danner (May 6, 1768-Dec. 23, 1808) the daughter of

Henry and Elizabeth Kehr Danner. One child of Andrew and Anna was
Samuel D (Sept.
20, 1793 - May 18, 1870) who married Sarah Bucher (Jan. 17, 1797 - May
2,
1869)" "Anna Danner Miller was buried in Roth's church cemetery (near
Spring
Grove, PA).
Samuel D. and his wife Sarah are my great, great grandparents and are
buried
in Price's cemetery -now Carroll Co., MD. Was Baltimore Co. before
Carroll
Co. was founded. One of their children was Sarah Miller who married
Jacob
Buser (buried in Price's cemetery). Sarah later married a Sellers. Her
tomb
stone is placed first in the first row of markers at Black Rock - though
she was
not the first person to be buried there. Sarah's only surviving
daughter was
Lydia who married Aaron Sweitzer Baugher and these are my maternal
grandparents. My mother, Sarah Lettie (a k a Lettie Sarah) was one of
13 children who
married Luther Hoover. Many of the Andrew Miller family married members
of the
Hoover family (York Co., PA). Therefore there are many Miller cousins on
both
sides of my family!
There were many, many decendents of Elder Andew Miller, who were
members of
Upper Codorus in York, Co., PA - for many years.
A historian of the Miller family, Jacob Miller of Lake Road in Spring
Grove,
York Co., has done extensive research on the Miller families. He and
his
wife, Arlene, live in a beautifully, restored home that was once used
for church
services.
