My familiy tree says we are from a different Frederick Miller, yet has the other Frederick Miller's father and Mother listed as parents.  My DNA say's I come from the North Carolina Frederick.  I need to find information.

    Born Johann Wendel Müeller, in Dörrenbach, Germany, the son of Johann (Hans) Michael Müeller (the progenitor of this Miller family in America) and Anna Maria Linxweiler. August of 1739 Michael, Maria and their seven children boarded the Ship Samuel, immigrating from Dörrenbach Germany to the Port of Philadelphia, later moving to Berks County, Pennsylvania. These children are documented at the Kirchenbuch of Evangelisch-Lutherischen at Dörrenbach, Germany; the seventh being Johann Wendel Muller 12 October 1733. In 1753, a Land Grant is issued to Wendel in Rowan County, North Carolina. He is one of the earliest settlers in Rowan County, and at the age of 22 takes a Blackfoot Indian, Red Fern Na Me Qua, to live as his common-law wife. They later have two children, possibly more, John Philip and John Jacob Miller. At the age of 37 Wendel marries the widow Christina Biese Fisher; they have at least the following children, Peter, Sarah, George, Henry, David, Christina, Rachel and twins not surviving. November 11, 1775, Wendel is nominated for Lieutenant by the Rowan County Committee of Safety and recommended by the North Carolina Provencial Congress for confirmation. (North Carolina Colonial Records, Volume 10 page 320) Wendel served as a Lt. in Berger's Militia then Captain in the Continental Army until about 1781.
    Wendel Miller's Last Will and Testament, verifies the union with his Native American common law wife and favors his "white" sons over his "Indian" sons, although the Native American sons were older. Interestingly, all the daughters received the same amount, regardless of mother.
    The Miller DNA Project substantiates this lineage from Germany to Berks County, Pennsylvania to Rowan County, North Carolina.

    NOTE: Although his headstone shows 1730 as date of birth - and DAR approximates this as his date of birth, his actual date of birth is DOCUMENTED at Kirchenbuch of Evangelisch-Lutherischen at Dörrenbach, Germany; "the seventh child being Johann Wendel Muller 12 October 1733".
    § information as found in multiple resources and substantiated for his descendants. DNA evidence is available on this lineage.
