I am ASSUMING Edward Miller would have named his 1st born son after Edward's father (James Miller b- Abt. 1610 in Scotland) based on family naming patterns that were fairly strictly followed until the late 1700's. Later Miller descendants (up to the late 1700's) would name a 2nd born son the same name if the 1st born son died as an infant/child; and even a 3rd born son on one occasion, after the first two born son's had died as infants/children who had been given the same name. So this James Miller (assuming he existed) likely would have died after Edward's last born male son (otherwise the last born son would have been named James); but died PRIOR to becoming an adult since there is no document I found referring to a James Miller living in Isle of Wight County, VA around this time.



  • Based on old Scottish/English naming patterns that my Miller's seemed to follow up to the later 1700's; Edward would have named his 1st born son after his father (James); and his 2nd born son after himself (Edward).
