I am looking for the family of Abraham Miller b. abt 1781 Virginia died May 21, 1852 and wife Mary b. abt 1784 Virginia, who was on the 1840 and 1850 census Platte Co.Pettis Twp, MO and had at least children Stephen age 40 (born abt 1810); Nancy, age 30 (born abt 1820); John Q., Elytt (Elliott), Sarah, and Malinda.
The land records indicate they were living 2.5 miles in Pettis Twp. from Bentley and Wilson Potter, who were sons of James Potter from Cocke County Tennessee.
I believe this Miller family was from Cocke Co. Tennessee as well. I think they were living in Greene Co. Tennessee in 1818 when Abraham signed a deed as heir to the estate of Lewis Click from Washington Co. Tennessee.
I find them on the 1830 census Cocke Co Tenn living among my Click family and the families of the Gann's and Potter's.There is a strong possibility they also had a son James Harvey Miller who moved over into Clay co and Lafayette Co. Missouri and eventually migrated to California abt 1859.
Anyone researching this family, PLEASE contact me.
