    Hi, I am interested in learning more about the 1838 deed! Somehow I missed this information. Could you tell me more about it?

      Hello Manfred,
      It’s been awhile since I heard from you. I really don’t have anything on Catherine except that, according to Jim Yoder of the Casselman Historians, she came up from Preston Co., WV. See that her ancestors were Germans. Also, read my article on other early Lees: http://e-gen.info/?page_id=7181
      Also, did you click on the deed images to enlarge and read the details? Please stay in touch!

    I stumbled across some information that I haven’t seen referenced, yet. (I would have commented this on the Michael’s page, but there is not comment section there.)

    According to this source, George Miller’s family Bible, Michael and Adam Miller were twins born on November 1760. Michael’s wife was Mary Baer: https://www.genealogy.com/forum/surnames/topics/miller/26263/
