Notes:
JACOB MILLER, SENIOR-THE GERMAN EMIGRANT According to Government records obtained by Sigfus Olafson, Jacob Miller was born in Germany in the year 1702 and came to America with his parents in 1715. They settled about 30 miles from the Port of Philadelphia, at a place known as Faulkners Swamp. Here Jacob, the boy, lived to manhood and at the age of 23 married a German girl of the same name, who either came over with them, or at a later date; more probably at a later date, since she was from another part of Germany and spoke a different dialect. One spoke High German, being from the Highlands, while the other spoke Low German, being from the Lowlands. Philadelphia being the port to which most of the early emigrants came, the nearby territory soon became thickly populated. Consequently they spread outward into the less settled parts of the surrounding country-Westward into the Pennsylvania Territory; South and Southwestward into the Virginia Territory. JACOB MILLER and family went south westward along the southern fringe of the Allegheny Mountains and found their way into the Shenandoah Valley, making their home in the fertile valley of (now) Rockingham County, near the present town of Harrisonburg, where be reared his family. We do not know the date he settled there, neither do we know how many children, since records are incomplete covering these early settlers, and we understand the court house of Rockingham County was destroyed by fire with all the County records. However, we do have the names of the following children: (Date of birth not given) 1-Christian 2-Henry 3-Jacob, Jr. 4-John, sr. 5-George 6-Barbary 7-Katherine. These were obtained in 1938 from Sigfus Olafson, who got them from U. S. Census records in Washington, D. C., as well as many other names of the descendants of Jacob Miller, given herein. See last paragraph of Chapter 2. Inasmuch as we owe to Mr. Olafson so many of the names recorded herein prior to 1860, we think it very appropriate to quote his opening paragraphs as given in his records of "THE MILLER FAMILY OF BOONE COUNTY," as follows: "Jacob Miller was born in Germany in 1702 and came to Philadelphia in 1715 when he was a boy of 13. He married a Miller, also a German, but not related to him, as one of the couple was from the highlands of Germany and spoke the dialect known as High German, while the other was from the lowlands and spoke the Low German dialect. "At this time Philadelphia was the port to which most of the German immigrants came, as well as many immigrants of other nationalities. There was not room for them in that vicinity so they naturally spread outward into the less settled portions of Pennsylvania and southward along the eastern ridge of the mountains, which at that time were an almost insurmountable barrier. In that way a good many of them found their way into the Shenandoah Valley, among whom was Jacob Miller. He settled in Rockingham County and there reared a large family." (Among the children were those given above.) 

Notes: Note: Apparently, the Jacob Miller mentioned in Everett Miller’s Genealogy as moving to Virginia was Jacob Miller Jr. Jacob Sr likely died in Pennsylvania. 

Notes: JACOB MUELLER/MILLER Jacob Miller was born 1702 in GERMANY, probably near Munich. Many German immigrants came from southern GERMANY during this time period. He immigrated from GERMANY with his parents about 1714 or 1715. There is no information on his parents. On the ship, Jacob met a young lady by the name of Margaret Miller (Muller). She was not related to him and came from another part of GERMANY. Thus thrown together n the long journey on a slow sailing vessel, they became well acquainted and despite the fact that one spoke "high German" and the other "low German", their acquaintance grew and ripened into a very ardent a!ection and in approximately 1725, they married. Jacobs parents settled about 30 miles NW from the port of Philadelphia at a place called Faulkners Swamp. It is believed that Margarets parents settled there also. About 1775, leaving their parents, Jacob and Margaret, their sister, Mary Price, and brothers Christian and Henry Miller, moved to Augusta County. His children, John Miller, George Miller, Barbara Mann, Catherine Conrad moved to the mountains of Greenbrier County, now Monroe. Mary Prices husband, Augustus, was born in this area and his parents lived there. In 1776 Jacob and Elizabeth (Fudge) Miller sold their land to Conrad Fudge, and also moved to Greenbrier County.
