*Sometimes spelled Leman or some 30 other ways

@Could his father have been also Benedict from a line originating in Worb, Bern, Switzerland around 1623 with Benedict I?

+also ancestor to later northern Somerset County Lutheran, Reformed, and Brethren Millers through the Christian and Abraham Baer Families.(See J. Virgil Miller’s John “Hannes” Miller, Sr., history, p.23.)

#Earlier, Susannah Musser (1785-1818)married Christian “Glades” Miller, Jr. (1779-1865) providing a link into our northern Joseph Miller line. We believe these Mussers are connected to the Benjamin and John Musser family.

    Woah! I have Magdalena (Indian John Miller) as the daughter of Benedict Lehman and Veronica!

    Do you have any information on a Mary Layman who married a Conrad Sellers (1765/-1840)

      There are many opinions on this one, all supposedly documented. In revisiting my Magdalena, I see that her father was older. Perhaps I missed a generation? We do believe that “Indian John” was married twice, so that could be part of the confusion. I’ll get back to you as I do the Vitals on these associated families. Thanks for calling me on this!
