Dick,

I looked in The Land of Good Water, and there is no mention of Millertown. There was a Miller School that consolidated with Liberty Hill in 1949.

Good luck,
Pam

Thanks, Pam. Millertown was very close to Liberty Hill, so the Liberty School is most likely the spot. Good hunting.

I'm guessing you mean Miller Community. From "The Handbook of Texas Online".... "The Miller Community, also known as Jenks Branch, was five miles southeast of Liberty Hill in western Williamson County. It was established by Milas, Richard, and Nelson Miller, brothers who moved to Texas from South Carolina soon after the Civil War." There's more from that source, and Miller is also on the map included with "Land of Good Water"

There is also a Miller Cemetary along CR 279 (Baddad Road) located in now the City of Leander limits. It is accross from Live Oak Road. A small private cemetary i am told is a black cemetary. The Miller family were freed slaves that lived in the area and i am not sure where the homestead was but near Jenks Branch. Jenks Branch was also a location of church meetings and camping along he San Gabriel River. Jenks Branch can be found on MapQuest.
I live down the road and have always wanted to see the graves stones there. Will report if the Miller Brothers lay to rest there?

Alynette,

I'm really curious if the location of the church meetings is still accessible, I live in Austin. Could you send me an email at joel at harpsoft dot com?
