There have been no will or other documents found indicating if John-III and Mary had any children. However given there is a John Miller that is witnessing, etc. documents in Isle of Wight Co, VA after John-III's death; I am assuming this John-IV is John III's son.


He is the son of Edward Miller and Martha Unknown.


  • A will was recorded on 8/27/1733 for an Edward Miller in Isle of Wight County, Virginia noting his wife Martha and children Edward, John, William, and Sarah. Witnessed by John Hodges and Benjamin Hodges and estate divided by his friends Mathew Jordan Thomas Murry, John Davis, and William Harrison.


1721: A John Miller appraises a John Murre's estate with Philip Wheaton & Ellis (Elias) Hodges. Same year (1721) a John Miller witnesses a will of a John Thropp where (Levy Neck Meeting House is noted). Same year a John Miller appraises the estate of a John Luck with Philip Wheadon, William Baker, & Thomas Renn.

1721: An Alice Miller is noted as the daughter of a John Bell in his will and a John Miller (assume her husband) is noted as John Bell's friend in John Bell's will.

1726: A John Miller & Mary Miller (assume Mary was John's wife) witness the will of a John Linsey of UPPER PARISH, who died 8/25/1726.

1728: A John Miller dies (date on his estate appraisal was 4/22/1728); appraised by William Harrison, Benjamin Hodges, William Bamer, and Philip Wheadon.

1746: William Miller mentions his brother John Miller to inherit William's son's (William) portion of his estate is William the son should die without heirs; so William's brother, John was still living in 1746

  • Found a transcript of John Clayton's 1756 Isle of Wight County, Virginia will where is he notes grandson Benjamin Miller and children (birth dates estimated based on fairly known Miller birth/death dates; year he died; etc.):
