Miscellaneous Genforum Postings

"Lesley - I may have contacted you previously. If so, I don't recall what about. Your query about father of Brice Miller, father of Jane, who married Joseph Fink - Brice was son of Joseph and Dolly (Cornwell) Miller. Joseph was a brother to the Brice who married Elizabeth Bradshaw. If you wish to contact me - Gaye M. Whitehead, P. O. Box 733, Daniels, WV 25832-733 or by email."

"Brice Miller may be named after an ancestor uncle Henry Brice who in 1724 married Susannah Miller, daughter of Simon Miller of Rappahannock VA".

"Have long searched for names of parents and place of birth for Joseph Miller who married Dolly Cornwell, Greenbrier Co, VA 1789. His brother, Brice Miller (Indian Scout) married Eliza Bradshaw 1781 in same county. His sister, Jane Miller, married John Wallace 1780 in same county. Some of other Millers in Monroe Co, VA at time may be brothers or sisters but not proven. Will be grateful for any help given".


i. JAMES4 MILLER, b. Aft. 1781, Greenbrier Co, Va; d. Aft. 1830; m. SIBBY HARPER, 1814, Bath County, KY.

Information obtained from the message board:

"Am still looking for information on James Miller and his wife Sibby Harper Hanks. They were married in 1814 in Bath Co Ky. Removed to Putnum Co. ca, 1830. James Miller was the son of Brice Miller and Elizabeth Bradshaw of Bath Co. Ky. and Sibby Harper Hanks was the daughter of John Harper and Mary Ann? of Montgomery Co. Ky. I believe they lived in the Bainbridge area. If you have any information on any of these people I would love to hear from you. Thanks for any information. Teresa Rigney"

Later Message:

"Sibby Harper Hanks parents were John Harper and Mary Ann ? Harper of Montgomery Co. Ky. Sibby was the widow of George Hanks who died in 1813, she then married James Miller. I am interested in finding out what happened to Sibby and her husband James Miller after they moved to Putnum Co. IN. Names of children and when they died and are buried etc".

George Hanks parents were Abraham Hanks and Sarah Harper. Sarah Harper and Sibby father John Hanks were supposedly brother and sister which would have made Sibby and her first husband George Hanks first cousins. According to the author Adin Baber, who wrote several books on the Hanks lines, Abraham Hanks and Sarah Harper are the parents of Nancy Hanks the mother of Abraham Lincoln, which would make Nancy Hanks a sister to George Hanks".

I actually am not connected to the Miller line, my ancester was Stephen England Hanks son of Sibby Harper Hanks and her first husband George Hanks. Teresa Rigney"
