Spotlight On Crossings / Migration: Miller Family Crosses the Atlantic

Michael Mueller / Miller

The GGGGGG Grandfather of Marty Miller:

Michael Miller and his wife Suzanna Agnes Berchtol, came to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Colony, 2 October, 1727, on the the ship Adventure Galley, with several children and accompanied by Jacob Berchtol, her brother and Jacob Stutzman, Jr., his step brother. They left Germany because of their opposition to military conscription of the times.


Visit: Troy's Miller Page

His son Johann Michael Müller (Mueller)/Miller (Jr.) was born in 1692 in Steinwenden, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany and emigrated from Germany to the New World with the migration of "Pennsylvania Dutch" in 1727. Probably starting in Germantown on the outskirts of Philadelphia, the family gradually moved west across Pennsylvania to Coventryville, PA, Rapho/Little Conewago, and Hanover before crossing into Maryland to present-day Maugansville just north of Hagerstown in Washington County, Maryland in 1745.

As the Miller's expanded in this area they met with the disruptions of the French & Indian War (1754-1763) and the American Revolution (1775-1783). During the Revolution they espoused non-violence as "non-associators," refusing to pay war taxes or to serve in the army. As a result Michael's sons David and Jacob Miller, as well as members from allied families, lost land claims.
