According to his tombstone, Oatha Miller died February 1, 1858 in Licking County, Ohio.
He is buried in Fallsburg Cemetery located in Licking County, Ohio.
Some researchers make Oatha Miller the son of Valentine Miller and Susan Laubach, residents of Northampton, Pennsylvania. This is undocumented and unlikely. Oatha Miller lived in Maryland and Ohio. No records exist to suggest otherwise. His marriage and all census returns signify his origin as Maryland.
Some researchers assign Otho Miller, resident of Delaware Upper Hundred, Baltimore, Maryland, as the Oatha Miller of this profile in the 1810 Census. This is also unlikely. If the birth estimate is correct, Oatha Miller would have been approximately 29 years of age in 1810. There are no males meeting that age category in the return. By 1810, Oatha Miller had two female chldren under the age of 10 years. The Otho Miller of the census return is not Oatha Miller, the husband of Eleanor Porter.
Some presentations list a female child named Clarissa, born in 1816 in Licking County, Ohio. This child is undocumented and unlikely.
Quite a strong connection exists between the family of Oatha Miller and the family of Joseph Jones. Three daughters of Oatha Miller married three sons of Joseph Jones.

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Otha 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 Otha:
