6. Based on research of Marriage Register #2 the following was found:
Robert Eakin Miller and Jane McClelland were married on 09 Jan 1800 by J. Whiteker (page 4).
John Miller and Cassandra West were married on 07 Oct 1808 by J. Barnett (page 34).
Joseph Miller and Polly McKee were married on 20 Dec 1809 by Wm. Sturmer(?) (page 38).
Joseph Miller and Patsy McClelland were married on 22 May 1814 by J. Barnett (page 50).

7. Based on a search of abstracts of marriages at the Paris Bourbon Co. Library from the “Western Citizen Newspaper- Alexander S. Miller married Ann C. Petham on 08 Oct 1858 and the marriage was preformed by Rev. W. C. Dandy. The article stated Ann Petham was from Mason Co., Ky. **NOTE** see Ky. Genweb Mason Co. Marriage Abstracts #8, 1857-1862-Groom Index: http://www.rootsweb.com/~kymason/bk8groom.html. The index from Mason Co. spells Ann C. Pelham but the Western Citizen spells Ann C. Petham.

Lorraine Llewellyn e-mailed, 1) Harry Middleton Hyatt Revision of Millers of Millersburg {FHL US/CAN Film 1550353, {All Caps unless otherwise noted are by L.F.L. 2006}
Harry Middleton Hyatt writes in: Notebook of a revision of "The Millers of Millersburg, Kentucky, pp. 1-45}. Page 4 item # 7 Document # 2: "MILLER, Elizabeth (or Lucy) - the story is similar to the one told of Bryant's Station {S. 16}. The Millers and several other families were being besieged in their blockhouse by the Indians when the water supply gave out. Not having a man to spare and thinking that the Indians would not harm a young girl, Elizabeth was sent out to a nearby spring. She was returning, in fact had almost reached the blockhouse, when she was shot and instantly killed by the Indians. The girl was about twelve or thirteen years old" (p. 27; Lorraine's note: Of the first Millers of Millersburg).
I suggested in a footnote (p 27) that this episode must have happened while the Millers were still living at Fort Beargrass (present Louisville; see S. 20) since I associated the tragedy, as perhaps did my grandfather (I could no longer remember in 1929), Kentucky. We will learn from Robert ROBISON that this family murder occurred in Pennsylvania before the Millers moved to Kentucky.
Page 5, Document # 3. Robert ROBISON, one of the early pioneers of Sherman's Valley (S 5) left a narrative in which he says: "I forgot to give you an account of a murder done at our fort in Sherman's Valley, in July, 1756; the Indians waylaid the fort {Fort Robinson, S 6>} in harvest-time, and kept quite until the reapers were gone; James WILSON, remaining some time behind the rest, and I not being gone to my business, which was hunting deer for the use of the company, WILSON standing at the fort gate {perhaps waiting for this wife to reenter the fort before he left}, I desired to shoot his gun at a mark, upon which he gave me the gun, and I shot; the Indians on the upper side of the fort, thinking they were discovered, rushed on a DAUGHTER OF ROBERT MILLER [Caps, by H.M.H. underline by L.F.L.], and instantly killed her, and shot at John SIMMESON [who immediately fled to notify the reapers or to the safety of the fort]; they then made the best of it that they could [knowing that the screams, shots or possible notification by SIMMESON would soon bring the absent reapers], and killed the wife of James WISON, and the Widow GIBSON [her maiden name was McClelland, D, ], and took [her son] Hugh GIBSON [D. ], and Betsy HENRY prisoners. While the Indian was scalping Mrs. GIBSON [D.], the narrator shot at and wounded him, but he made his escape. The reapers, being 40 in number returned to the fort, and the Indians made off" (quoted by I. Daniel Rupp, The History and Topography of Duuhin, Cumberland, Franklin, Bedfored, Adams, and Perry Counties, Lancaster City, PA., 1846 p. 559

Commissioner of pensions Washington Dc
Sir, will you please tell me whether Joseph McClintock of Penn. received a pension for his services in the Revolutionary War?
Joseph McClintock was a private soldier in Capt. John Jacks Co. 2d Battalion, Cumberland Co. Pa. Col. Thos. Gibison in 1778 and in 1780. He was in Capt., John Adams Co. 5th Battalion, Cumberland Co. He died in 1799 in PA.
Also John Miller of Cumberland Co. PA. fought in the Revolutionary War. He was born 1752 and died in 1815. He lived in or near Carlisle, Cumberland Co. PA, but at the time of his death her was living in Millersburg, Bourbon Co. Ky. John Miller received a grant of land in Kentucky, but so far I have been unable to find out why he received this land. Can you tell me about this grant?
If you have no record of a grant of land given to John Miller of Pa. is there any place I can write to find out about this grant?
Could the Miller brothers have made a purchase from the government?
thank you for any help you may be able to give me.
Sincerely
Mrs. Warner Mills
