Surnames: Miller, Yocum, Jarrett, Jarrit
I am looking for parents for these Millers buried in Selinsgrove New Lutheran Cemetery, Selinsgrove, Union/Snyder Co., PA..
New name for cemetery is: Trinity Lutheran Cemetery.
1. Jonas Miller b: 06 Nov. 1806, d: 16 March 1881, m: Catherine Brobst.
2. John H. Miller b: 27 May 1809, d: 15 Apr. 1884, m: Isabella Yocum 1st., Mary A. Jarrett 2nd.
3. Jacob Miller b: 10 Sept. 1811, d: 29 June 1866, m: Catherine Klose <---That is the spelling on the head stone.
4. Mary Ann Miller b: 07 April 1816<--burial unknown
5. William Miller b: 27 Oct. 1811, d: 27 Oct. 1870, m: Eve [Note: I don't think William is part of this family but he is found in the same cemetery.]
6. James Miller b: 10 Aug. 1826, d: 06 Aug. 1900, m: Catherine b: 30 Dec. 1859 d: 22 Sept. 1879

Mary Ann Miller and Eve, wife of William are the only ones not in the same cemetery. We visited the cemetery in 1999.

Census Info:

Note: I think John and Jacob Miller listed below are brothers and the other John Miller to be John H. Miller, who was married to Isabella Yocum. No proof yet but in the 1830 Census for Union Co., Selinsgrove, there are only three Miller's listed and the possibility of my John H. Miller's father could be either of the two listed below, I think is the best possibility of John H. Miller's father is Jacob Miller.
