Biography

Michael Mueller was born in 1732, a son of George Miller and Maria Catharina (Stump) of Lebanon county, Pennsylvania. Michael was 21 year old when he inherited the Mueller House and Illig's Mill, built by his father, who left his wife behind and moved to Abbots Creek in Rowan County where he established a gristmill. Michael cared for her mother until her death in 1787.

Michael increased the size of the house by adding a living quarters for his mother, as he and his wife Maria Elisabeth Becker took over the main portion of the home. They had eight sons and two daughters, although four sons died prior to Michael and Maria. The house and 300 acres was willed in 1809, to their son, John. His sister, Maria Elisabeth, who was widowed and childless moved back into the home with John in 1830. [1]

The House of Miller at Millbach, in Lebanon county, Pennsylvania is a two and a half story sandstone and limestone residence with a gambrel roof in a Germanic Style, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places, in 1973 [2]

Maria Elizabeth Becker, who was born in 1736, a daughter of Jacob Becker, died in October, 1801 and is buried in the Millbach Cemetery, in Lebanon county, Pennsylvania. Michael died October 11, 1815, and was buried with her. There is a photograph of his headstone on his Find A Grave memorial. [3]
