Biography

John Miller was born in Europe in 1730 and came to the Penn Colony in 1749 on the Phoenix. Name was Johannes Muller, called Hannes; called Indian John, Wounded John, and Crippled John by family historians – is said to have been wounded as the Hochstetler family was being taken into captivity by the Indians in 1757 – may be tradition, no documentary evidence ... [1]

Hannes and Magdalena stayed in Elklick township for only eleven years. The first four children married, settled and stayed in Elklick or Summit township. Hannes and Magdalena moved with the younger children to the Glades. He Miller bought a farm from Abraham Coxson.

"Hannes, Sr., and his wife lived together in the Glades only from 1786 to 1798, twelve years, altough Magdalena lived another nineteen years. Hannes died at about age sixty-eight, an average age for that time, but not a great age." (see source below -- page 9)

"On the Maust Farm itself is a small cemetery with several markers, only one of which has an inscription. It reads: "M1817M," which we could interpret as: Magdalena Miller, died 1817." "The gravestone of John, Sr. is no longer there."(see source below -- pgs. 22 & 119)[2][3]
