  • Notes 
    • According to Isaac Miller's A Short History of Barbara and Samuel Miller (citation details below), he was a son of Daniel Miller (b. 1752) and Barbara Long (b. 6 Mar 1757). However, according to James Landes on Wikitree, specifically addressing Isaac Miller's work, Barbara Long died on 31 Jan 1784, two weeks after the birth of their second son Daniel Miller (Jr.), and Samuel Miller was a son of Daniel Miller and his second wife, Anna Garber, who he married in 1784 in Forestville, Rockingham, Virginia.

      (Landes says that Daniel Miller and his second wife Anna Garber were cousins, but this would appear to depend on ttwo propositions, neither proved. First of these is the idea that Anna Garber's mother Barbara Miller was a daughter of early Brethren immigrants John Michael Miller/Mueller and Agnes Susanna Berchtoll, which, as Roberta Estes points out here, is plausible but unproved. Second is the idea that Daniel Miller's father, given as "Lewis Miller" by Isaac Miller (citation details below) was the Lodowich Miller known to have been a son of John Michael Miller/Mueller and Agnes Susanna Berchtoll, and the evidence for this seems to us similarly hazy.)

      "After Samuel and Barbara were married, they settled on a farm about two miles, southwest of Harrisonburg, Va., along what is known as the Warm Springs pike. They were both members of the Brethren church. [...] They continued to reside on the above mentioned farm until the fall of 1839, when they, with their entire family, moved in Allen county, Ohio, and settled on the farm now occupied by Samuel R. Jacobs, where they lived until the time of their death." [A Short History of Barbara and Samuel Miller, citation details below]
