I also have a Samuel Miller in my ancestry. He was born 1837 one township south
of Rootstown, in Randolph Twp. He was the son of john Miller b. 1800 in Pa.
John Miller was married twice, first Barbary ? and second Mary Bushong. He had
13 children: Jacob, Joshua, John, Susannah, Catherine, Samuel, Sarah, Samantha,
Lewis, Henry, Melvil, and Amanda.
I know that this info. doesn"t help you, but I am hoping that some connection
might be made between your Jacob, and my John. I have never been able to
determine who John's Parents were, or where in Pa. he was from. As I am sure
you know, Miller is a hard name to research.
Thanks for your time,
