My Notes on the David Miller, III line:

1.) David Miller information - "As described in Arch Miller's book about the Miller genealogy."

"David Miller born abt. 1760 in Holland, and died bet. 1840-1850 in Fayette Co., PA. He married
Catherine (?) abt. 1800. She was born abt. 1765 in Holland and died aft. 1850 in Fayette Co., PA.
David and his wife, Catherin, came to America sometime around 1800 or shortly thereafter. Their son
Phillip was born in 1801. Early family history handed down by word of mouth say that he was born in
Holland and could speak both Dutch and German. 1880 Census records show that Phillip says that he was
born in eastern VA. His son Victor P. Miller, in the same census says that his father was born in
eastern VA."

2.) Esther Winters had children of David and Catharine as: "Phillip, b. 1801, married to Elizabeth
Victor; Nicholas (living next door to David in 1850 censu, page 0063 German Twp., Fayette Co.,PA);
and David (1850 census Masontown, German Twp., Fayette Co., PA)" After discussing with Barbara Miller
Patterson we do not feel this is accurate information. This Nicholas is the son of Richard Miller and
Irene Patterson. And we believe this David (Masontown) is the son of John T. Miller and the grandson
of Richard and Irene Miller.

3.) Information on this line was posted on rootsweb by: Maurice Woehrle 
Listing children as Samuel, Henry, Sarah and William; giving William's complete dob and place of
birth.

6.) SIXTH GENERATION

A few years after his father's death around 1798, David Miller settled in Georges Township, Fayette
County, Pennsylvania. He married Catherine (Getzendanner) Ambrose, daughter of Baltis and Anne
(Steiner) Getzendanner (see GETZENDANNER) and widow of Christopher Ambrose. On 27 May 1803 he bought
a tract of land situated on a branch of Georges Creek called "Strawberry Hill" for 606 Pounds, 13
Shillings, 4 Pence. He acquired the land from Joseph Leatherman and Magdalene Leatherman, his
brother-in-law and sister-in-law. Joseph Leatherman obtained the land by a patent dated 12 Jan. 1792
from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for 606 Pounds 13 Shillings, 4 Pence. The name for this tract
was probably suggested by Horace Walpole's house and museum at Strawberry Hill. On "Strawberry Hill"
are remains of a village founded prior to Anglo Saxon habitation. Tradition locates a French village
in 1730 and evidence exists to warrant it an abiding place of the time before the mysterious
moundbuilder. When the Anglo Saxon traders and hunters first penetrated the area, this was the
hunting ground of the Six Nations or Mingo Indians. After 1890 a schoolhouse was built on this
property and name Miller's Schoolhouse for David Miller. On 27 Mar. 1798 Joseph Leatherman executed
his bond to David Miller in the penal sum of 1,000 Pounds for the conveyance to David Miller of the
land he purchased from Samuel Reed, James Reed and David Reed (sons of Thomas Reed). The bond is as
follows: 

"Whereas Samuel Reed, James Reed & David Reed have this day Conveyed their right of a tract of Land
in Georges Township, Fayette Count, Willed to them by their father, Thomas Reed, unto Joseph
Leatherman. And Whereas by agreement David Miller has paid a part of the purchase money and is
entitled to a part of the Land, which part is not yet defined or worked out - Now the said Joseph
Leatherman doth hereby bind himself his heirs executors and administrators to make a good and
sufficient title unto the said David Miller of such part of said Land as may be mutually agreed upon
between the parties as soon as it can be conveniently done. For the true performance of which he
hereby binds himself his heirs executors and administrators in the penal sum of One Thousand Pounds,
lawful money of Pennsylvania. Sealed with his seal dated the twenty seventh day of March one thousand
seven hundred and ninety eight.

Sealed and delivered
in the presences of 

Alexander McClean
James Reed"

Another agreement between David Miller, Joseph Leatherman and George Curstead to David Reed is as
follows:
"This will bindeth us Joseph Leatherman, David Miller and George Curstead, all of Georges Township,
Fayette County and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, to pay or cause to be paid unto David Reed, son of
Thomas Reed, late of the same place, deceased, the sum of one hundred and two pounds twenty shillings
and six pence, lawful money of Pennsylvania, on or before the 1st day of April which will be in the
year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and ninety nine. To which payment will and truly to be
made and done in the penal sum of one hundred and five pounds five shillings of like lawful money
aforesaid. Sealed with our Seals the twentieth day of March in the year of our Lord one thousand
seven hundred and ninety eight.

Sealed and delivered
in the presence of 

Andr. Trapp
Alexander McClean"
