It may be possible to confirm family relationships with John by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with John:
I notice that in the notes, that it states: My research and the John Miller, Sr's Will does not include the following two children.Simon Miller
Margaret Miller. I believe that these are probably children of this person: John Miller. Several duplicates for Simon need to be resolved. I'd like to start by associating them with the other John Miller.
Miller-1223 and Miller-14287 appear to represent the same person because: Miller-1223 should be end merge #. Birth date s/be 1670 as they married abt 1690. I believe all these dates are estimations anyways. For death I show he died BEF MAR 1741/42 in Middlesex Co., VA. Thanks. Mindy
