Biography

Anna (Theisen) Miller migrated from Germany to Louisiana.
Flag of Louisiana

At the age of 30 years, Anna Marie (Theisen) Miller and her family, which included her husband, 30-year old Jacob Miller, 6-year old daughter Barbe, 4-year old daughter Catherine, 3-year old daughter Anne Marie and 2-year old son Jacob, arrived in New Orleans after an extended ordeal aboard the schooner, La Brittania, -- also known as the Britain, sailed 5 Jan 1769, which also carried some Acadians from Maryland.[1]

She died sometime before June 1824, when her succession was filed.[2]

Research Notes

It looks like her surname is usually recorded as Theigen and not as Theisen. Some records for her children's marriages and grandchildren's baptisms even suggest other surnames such as Ritter, Teygen, Taighen and more. This is most of the records, but I may have missed some later ones or those with more unusual spellings of Miller and Jacob.[3]

Note that the following record is for a grandchild of hers and is not her record:

  • “THAISON, Anne Marie (Jean & Anne Marie MILHER) b. 26 Nov. 1792, bt. 19 May 1793 Spons: Jean THELER & Marie Anne MILHER.[4]
