"In the year 1817 several members of the Miller family emigrated from the vicinity of Harper's Ferry in Loudon County, Va., to Champaign County, Ohio. The emigrants consisted of Valentine Miller, his wife and some of his family including several sons-in-law. It was a sort of exodus of the Miller family since the father and mother resolved not to be left behind if the children came West.
"Valentine Miller was of German descent and followed the occupation of a miller continuing in it for years after coming to Ohio. He bought a tract of land in Champaign County and divided it among his children retaining a farm for himself. He and his wife are buried in a family burying ground on a part of the Miller estate near Millersville, Ohio, which took its name from this family.

She was of English and Welsh descent and came of that early Virginia colony which obtained its wives by paying for their passage with tobacco. ..." - The Clinton Register, Clinton, Illinois, 26 Jan 1912, excerpted from the obituary for Ann (Gideon) Parker
