Here is an attempt to explain it as easy as possible (from what I have so
far) that might be up for discussion.
First, the Will of Jacob MILLER the husband of Barbara (soon to be
Barbara OTT the wife of Henry OTT). Their proven children by this will are:

Ulrich aka Wolrick (1735-)
Jacob (1737-1777)
Barbara (1739-1814)
Susannah (1743-)
Christian (1744-1836)
Mary (1745-)
Martin (1747-)

be divided among his children.

Second, the Will of Jacob MILLER, Jr. (1737-1777). I believe that his
wife Rebecca was the daughter of Adam YEAGER.
The two you spoke of that sold the Piney Woods land in Madison County
to Piney Woods, John YEAGER in 1772.
I need the deed information to this land if anyone is willing to share

Third, the deed of Mary MILLER and her husband Palser HOOVER. Proof of
her marriage to him.
I need to know if she married twice, another time to John YEAGER?

Fourth, a deed and a will which shows that Barbara was the wife of
Did she marry again to a Joseph YEAGER, the son of Adam YEAGER?
Who is this Michael OTT, a son to Henry OTT?

Abraham BRUBAKER, Senior of Shenandoah County, farmer.
Named as his wife: Barbara
Named as his son: Abraham to have the plantation where he now lives
adjoining the town of Woodstock.
Named as his son: John to have home plantation where I now live.
Named as his son: Peter to have plantation adjoining my old place which I
purchased of Samuel STOVER.
Named as his daughter: Barbara, deceased and Barbara's heirs to have the
Mill and plantation below the Town of Woodstock.

Mentions: land on top of Blue Ridge in County of Culpeper to be sold.
Executors: Isaac STRICKLER, his son-in-law and John ROADS
Witnesses: Levi KEENAN and Samuel STRICKLER

Christian was married to Christina WISEMAN and Susannah was married to
After Jacob MILLER, Sr.'s death, his widow Barbara and her new husband
Henry OTT sell off the Woodstock lots and so forth. So there is loads of
documentation there.

I would like to put the YEAGER marriages into this part of the MILLER
family, in my records, if they occurred or determine that they never happened.

I don't know if any of this helps. Betty probably knows the particulars
concerning this part of the MILLER family.
