Meriwether connections

Surnames: Meriwether, Miller
Judy,
I have the following information on the Meriwether connection. Albert Meriwether was the son of William Meriwether and Elizabeth Winslow. (You mentioned Thomas and Mary Anderson Meriwether as his parents. This is the wrong Albert. They also had a son named Albert but he married Eliza Jane Sharp & Louisa Waters.) I have more on the Meriwether family so let me know if I can help.

I descend from the MILLER family of King & Queen Co, VA, which migrated to Jefferson Co, KY. I have been searching for other descendants of this MILLER family for a long time, and have not come across many. Time to try again!

I saw where Robert Hatten Miller live 2 doors away from Thomas Moore. My ggrandfather's give name is Robert Hatten, surname Wright. His g.grandmother was Sarah Moore Neal.Curious about the name because my ggrandfather wasn't named after any family member that we've uncovered, but lots of territory.
Thanks

MILLER and MATHEWS, no proof yet

Chuck - it sounds like you must have a copy of the old family history by cousin Betty Boyd THOMAS who married Henry Tarriman WARDER. She sent copies to my grandmother early in the 20th century. I have those copies, but I have never proven that connection to the MATHEWS family. I also have not proven the "marriage" of Dorothy MATTHEWS to John MILLER. I have researched Buckner MATHEWS and Dorothy BUCKNER and never found proof of their marriage or a child. If you have documentary evidence, I would LOVE to hear from you about it. I have considerable evidence on the children of John MILLER (no wife's name in any of the wills or deeds I have found). I did find another Dorothy MATHEWS who married Thomas MILLER, who is apparently not kin to our MILLERS.

My line goes from Robert MILLER and Cassandria MOORE, daughter of Col James Francis MOORE of Jefferson Co. Their son, James Francis "Frank" MILLER married Mildred Ann CAMP (his brother, Anthony, married Mildred's sister, Ellen CAMP). I descend from James Francis MILLER, Jr, who married (1) Marinda McCARTY and (2) Martha Ann GRAY (dau of Gideon GRAY and Judith Ann ROBINSON of Hardin and Meade Counties, KY. My grandmother was the youngest child of J F Jr and Martha Ann Gray.

Hope to hear from you.

Surnames: Miller, Woodsmall
After I just posted a message to you I realized I failed to put a few things:

John and William Miller are on the list of first land holders in Middletown, Jefferson Co. KY. They bought lots sometime between 1797 and 1838. They bought 6 lots. The connection between the Woodsmalls and the Millers is that the farm originally belonged to the Miller family, and then to the Woodsmall family, so both families are buried there. There was a log cabin (and I don't know if it's still there) and it was presumably built by John Miller. I can't help but think this John Miller was in your ancestry with the information you have given. Thanks...

Thank you, Thank you!!! What a blessing to FINALLY hear from someone who knows where these families lived and were buried. I will call the Museum in the morning and ask how I may buy the book.

Blessings to you!

Surnames: Miller, Buckner, Pomeroy, Meriwether, Woodsmall, Winlock, Baird
I recognized the names MILLER, BUCKNER, POMEROY, AND MERIWETHER as Jefferson Co. KY names from the Middletown area, which was settled in 1797. Have you checked out the book "Middletown's Days and Deeds" by Edith Wood? It was written in 1946 and is an excellent virtually unknown genealogy source for the first families/settlers for this area of Jefferson Co. KY. This book is at the Louisville Free Public Library, and if you are not in Louisville, you could see if they would do an interlibrary loan or it is sold at the Historic Middletown Museum in Louisville and I will list their link below. I do research for the museum and am indexing this book and just indexed Edwards Miller today. I saw him above. The names I listed are all in this book. For instance, Edwards Miller is buried in the Miller-Woodsmall Family Graveyard, and it says "Died in 1816". This graveyard (at least in 1946) was located between Middletown and Jeffersontown. Also buried there are: Dr. Robert Miller, William R. Miller, William T.H. Winlock, Anthony Miller (1776-1818), Stephen M. Woodsmall, Cynthia A. Baird, Sallie M. Woodsmall, James W. Woodsmall, Mary A. Woodsmall, Sabina A. Woodsmall, Ruth Maria Miller, Pamella Miller, and Thomas Miller. I hope this helps. I like to get the word out on this book because it is a goldmine. Good luck!
