Wendell Miller is buried in Organ Lutheran Church cemetery on Organ Church Road in eastern Rowan County.

He has a fairly recent US government marker at his grave. You can see a picture of his marker in the Wendel Miller genealogy book.

Barbara,

From which of his children are you descended? I could look in the Wendell Miller book to see where they are buried.

Barbara- do you need someone to go to the cemetery? I live in Rowan County. I might be able to go for you.

Barbara,

Wendell Miller's first wife (who was the mother of John Philip) - her name is unknown. Christina was Wendell Miller's second wife.

John Philip and his wife Sybilla Fisher are both buried at Organ Lutheran Church.

John Philip and Sybilla did have a child named Catherine who was born 24 Oct 1789 and died 3 Oct 1839. Catherine married Dawalt Lentz on 18 Jan 1811. Catherine Miller Lentz is also buried at Organ Lutheran. There is no record in the Wendell Miller book of her marrying a Shelton.

What documentation do you have showing she married David Shelton?

Do a Google on Chief Black Hawk. It is not feasible that any daughter he may have had could have married Wendel Miller. Wrong place, wrong time.

Larry, I agree with you. There has never been any documentation found proving the ancestry of Wendell Miller's first wife.
