Christ Church Parish Register transcription reported a John Miller as born 2/14/1736/1737 to a Christopher & Ann Miller. There was only one Christopher Miller noted in Christ Christ Church Register around this time, and he was only 11 years old in 1737 so could not have had a son in 1737. The birth dates where not in sequence (bounced back and forth between years) on the transcribe pages around this birth so there likely was difficulty reading the original document. I feel this John Miller's birth date actually was say 2/14/1746/1747. Therefore this John's first son born was Barbee Miller (b- 6/30/1766 in New Kent Co., VA) when John Miller his father was 19. There was no earlier son named John as I originally had thought. The naming patterns in the Miller family changed this generation maybe due to changes in naming patterns in general at the time or due to the stressful times leading up to and during the American Revolution.
Since I cannot delete this John Miller in WikiTree, I changed the preferred name to "DidNotExcess".
