From Jim Miller: I am going to ASSUME (however no way confirmed) that the John Miller (WikiTree Miller-50847) is the John Miller that married Averilla Clark Saunders in Middlesex Co., VA on 10/25/1792 (her mother was also Averilla Clark (Stiff) Saunders) and her grandmother was Elizabeth (Clark) Stiff. This John Miller is the grandson of Charles Miller, Sr.; and a Charles Miller, Sr. was on a jury in Middlesex Co., VA on 4/2/1755; so the family may have had ties to Middlesex Co., VA. FamilySearch.org has a family tree around Thomas Saunders, Jr. (1730-1788) and Avarilla Clarke (Stiff) Saunders - parents of Avarilla Clarke (Saunders) Miller. It is possible Charles Miller, Sr. (lived in South Carolina) was involved with (and related to) my Miller's in Middlesex Co., VA in transporting goods along The Great Wagon Road and other colonial routes from Virginia as far south as Augusta, GA.
Averilla was born in 1756.
Also in Middlesex County Virginia Wills, Inventories & Accounts, 1673-1812 published in 1989 (page 117 of this book):
"(p.390) Averillah C. Saunders....3 Jul 1798 / 22 Oct 1798.... Son Jacob S. Saunders. Two daughters Betty Blake and Averillah C. Miller. Granddaughter Mary Saunders, daughter of Jacob Saunders. Son Thomas Saunders. Son George Saunders. Godson William A. Stiff. Exor: Jacob S. Saunders. Wit: Thomas Stiff and William N. Stiff."
Note: My Miller's that remained in Middlesex County, Virginia to modern times married into the Blake family on several occasions.
