WENDEL MILLER'S WILL

In the name of God, Amen.
I, Wendle Miller, of Rowan County and State of N. Carolina, being in sound mind and memory, but weak in body, and knowing that it is appointed unto all men once to die, have thought proper to dispose of my worldly property, with which it has pleased God to bless me, in the following manner, Viz:
1. I give and bequeath to my dearly beloved wife, Christina, one negro girl named Polly, to be her own property as long as my wife shall remain widow, further I give to my wife, Christina, one bed and furniture, one spinning wheel, one iron pot, one pewter dish, six plates and six spoons, the choice of one horse, saddle and bridle, the choice of one cow. It is also my will that my wife shall have and one room in the house wherein I now live, for her own use. The above mentioned articles are to be delivered to my wife whenever my youngest son, David, becomes of age. It is further my will that from the time when my son David comes of age, my son George and Henry shall give unto my wife, Christina, yearly each of them, three bushels of wheat, five bushels of corn, fifty pounds of beef, and twenty five pounds of pork.
2. I give and bequeath to my son Peter, three hundred and sixty Spanish Milled Dollars.
3. I give and bequeath to my son David, the sum of three hundred and fifty Spanish Milled Dollars.

5. I give and bequeath to my daughters Catharina, Anna Maria, Susana, Philippina, Elizabeth, Sarah, Rachel, and Christina, to each and every one of them, the sum of one hundred Spanish Milled Dollars. But as my son-in-law, John Brown, has received from me sixty dollars, for which I have a receipt from under his hand, it is my will that these sixty dollars shall be deducted from the above mentioned sum willed to his wife, Catharina and she is only to get forty dollars more.
6. I give and bequeath to my son, Frederick, the sum of twenty five Spanish Milled Dollars.
7. I give and bequeath to my son, John, twenty Spanish Milled Dollars.
8. I give and bequeath to the Second Creek Congregation the sum of fifty dollars. It is further my will, that the negro woman, Patt, shall be hired out yearly for the benefit of my estate; and it is also my will that there shall be no vendue made until my son, David, becomes of age, all my property shall be sold, and the money arising from that sale shall be divided into equal shares amongst all my children, my step-daughter Elizabeth excepted, provided that before this distribution takes place the above mentioned sums are paid and also one hundred dollars to my wife, Christina.
It is my will also, that my wife Christina, shall have the power to furnish out of my estate those of my children which are yet unmarried at the time of their marriage with the same articles with which my married children have been furnished; and if at the time when the above distributions take place any of my children are single yet, they shall be provided for and furnished in the same manner.
It is further my will that if any building or repairs of buildings is necessary it shall be paid out of my estate.
I make, ordain and constitute my friend George Henry Berger, my wife, Christina, and son Philip, Executors of this will, and I empower them to make deeds to my sons George and Henry for the land herein willed. Then I declare this to be my last will and testament and pronounce all others null and void.

MotherElisabetha Bechtel2 b. 1742, d. 21 Sep 1799
     Elizabeth Lentz was Marriage; Person Source.3 She HISTORY OF D3- ELIZABETH LENTZ

She married in 1797. The 1800 census of Rowan Co. seems to show them on page 189 as John Miller, age 16-26, wife age 16-26, 1 son under age 10. From records on deeds, this must have been D31- John Miller, Jr. Other census records show several men named John Miller, and it is difficult to determine the correct one.

Dexter reports that John Miller, son of Wendel Miller, made his Will 2 Sep 1842 in Rowan Co., probated No. 1842. He shows 8 children. The first child he lists is (1) Theobald 'Dewalt' Miller, b. 5 Dec 1801, and he could not be on the 1800 census. Either the first child died or the wrong John Miller was picked from the 1800 census records, or Dexter has his children listed out of their order of birth. He shows John Miller, Jr., as the 4th child without dates.

The child named Theobold 'Dewalt' Miller would be named for his grandfather D- Dewalt (Diebolt or Theobolt) LENTZ and usually calls for the grandfather so named to sponsor the child with his blessings. John Paul LENTZ, researcher/compiler of LENTZ HERITAGE said that he failed to find a LENTZ sponsoring this child on the Organ Church records and that we need further searching. Our records here are not complete. Who sponsored the child on the 1800 census at baptism? Is the John Miller on the 1800 census our man?

The father of John Miller was Wendel Miller (1730-1805), born in Germany, lieutenant in the Revolutionary War in NC.

Because of limited space, descendents of Lentz women will be carried for only one generation, her children only, more if possible.

CHILDREN OF D3-ELIZABETH LENTS AND JOHN MILLER--
(LH, Chap V, p. 21)

John was a son of Wendel Miller who was a lieutenant in the Revolutionary War. John's historians show 8 children on dedication program for marker on grave of Wndel Miller. Several John Millers show on census records making it impossible to trace children of the family. They married in 1797, and the John Miller on the 1800 census of Rowan with only one wife and 1 son under 10 may be his family, but others do not show this son. Maybe he died young and was not counted or he is the wrong John Miller. Here are the records by others. Will of John Miller, 2 Sep 1842, Rowan, probated Nov. 1842. 8 children were named Several children moved to IL where their records are found in the counties of Pulaski, Union, Alexander, and others. Others show his first child born 5 Dec 1801. Eight or nine children.

Others show only the following in the family of D3-Elizabeth LENTZ MILLER. (1) Theobald (Dewalt) MILLER; (2) John Peter MILLER; (3) Simeon MILLER; (4) John MILLER, Jr; (4) (5) Christiana 'Tinna' MILLER, b. 6 Sep 1800, d. 1846, m. Jacob FISHER on 15 Aug 1821; (6) Sally MILLER; (7) Elizabeth MILLER; (8) Amy MILLER. Since there were several John MILLERS at the same time, we can vouch for only three: Theobald, John Peter ('Peter') and Simeon, who were sponsored by their LENTZ relatives.

NOTE: We do not have additonal history of these children at present.

OF D3- ELIZABETH LENTZ AND JOHN JACOB MILLER

Wendel arrived in Philadelphia from Rotterdam in 1754 on the ship Brothers [The BROTHERS landed in Philadelphia on September 30, 1754. See list of landings below]. The name of his first wife and the date of his first marriage is unknown. His oldest child, Frederick, states on his application for a Revolutionary War pension in Kentucky that he was born in Rowan County, NC in 1756. Wendel was registered on the earliest existing tax list for Rowan County in 1759.
Wendel helped build a road from the Granville line (Cabarrus County line) to Buffalo Creek Road In 1774 he was appointed an overseer of the road from a ridge between Buffalo and Second Dutch Creeks to the Pee Dee River. He was nominated lieutenant bythe Rowan County Safety Commission on 11 Nov 1775, was a constable in 1777, and was a tax assessor for his district. A list of officers nominated by the Safety Commission tothe Provincial Congress includes Lieutenant Wendell Miller.
When Jacob Frick appeared bfore the Circuit Court of Union County, llinois, to apply for a Revolutionary War pension, he swore that at the time of entering service he resided in Rowan County, North Carolina, and "that at the commencement of the Revolutionary War, he does not know the month or year , he volunteered under one Captain Wendle Miller and was then marched immediately to join what was then called the South Army then laying at a place named Ninety-Six."

Frederick Miller also servdd in his father's regiment. Wendel provided supplies for the Militia of North Carolina, Virginia, and South Carolina, was wounded at Eutaw Springs, and was allowed £6824 for brandy and corn.
The Miller's first worshipped in the Old Hickory Church near the present St. Peter's Lutheran Church 2.5 miles east of Rockwell. A monument in the St. Peter's cemetery marks the location. Wendel was on the building committee for Organ Lutheran Church, was on the church council, and was one of the 44 men who signed the church constitution adopted in 1789. It was reaffirmed in 1826 and signed by 157 men of whom 10 were his sons and grandsons Wendel took communion in Nov. 1804, and died early in 1805. between 1730 and 1805.4 He was born in 1733 at Dorrenbach, Sankt Wendel, Saarland, Germany.3 He was born in 1733 at Dorrenbach, Sankt Wendel, Saarland, Germany.5 He was born on 12 October 1733 at Dorrenbach, Sankt Wendel, Saarland, Germany; Johann Wendel 12.10.1733 Do.6 He was the child of Johann Michael Muller and Anna Maria Linxweiler and immigrated with them on 12 June 1738 to at Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania; Muller Johann Mihael Ausgewandardt in USA Ankunft am 6.12.1738 in Philadelphia - Luthern Church Book
The Mullers sailed to America in 1739 on the Ship Samuel and landed in Philadelphia. Michael Muller, born in Dorrenbach, Germany in 1696, was the son of Johann Wendel Muller 1658-1707 and the grandson of Johannes Muller 1625-1681. Dorrenbach Church Records and Werner Hacker immigration records show that Michael Muller paid 40 guldens to bring his wife and 7 children to America. They moved to the Palatine Settlement on the Tupelhocken Creek in Lancaster County, PA.7,6 Arrived Philadelphia aboard Samuel August 1739 confirmed at Christ Lutheran Church near Stochsburg, Berks County, PA, 1749.

Last mentioned in the baptismal records of Christ Luthern Church together with Christina Waldborn as a sponsor at a baptism on 7 May 1752. Rowan County Heritage #688 Wendel (Muller) Miller '. . .He was registered on the tax list for Rowan County in 1759. The name of his first wife is unattainable. His first child, Frederick Miller, stated that he was born in Rowan County in 1756. Wendel was either married when he arrived in America or married soon after his arrival. His first wife may or may not have been a Cherokee Indian Princess, the daughter of Chief Black Hawk. Either cliam is not documented. . .The Millers were Lutheran and first worshipped in the Old Hickory Church nr the present St Peters Ch. A monument is erected to mark the location of the church in St. Peter Ch Cem. Later the Miller family went to Organ where he was faithful until his death. . .Wendel was a large planter and owner of 2400 acres of land. He had many slaves. By 1775 he was one of the wealthiest men in Rowan County. He and his wife were bur at Organ Luth Ch, Rowan County, NC. Subject: Wendel MILLER Date: Thu, 16 Jul 1998 13:56:06 EDT From: Leecanipe@aol.com To: ROWANROOTS-L@rootsweb.com I'm descended from Anna Maria 'Mary' MILLER (abt 1770-1839), daughter of Wendel MILLER (abt 1730-1805). My records indicate that Mary's mother was an Indian, and that this Indian woman was the daughter of BLACKHAWK. I have spoken to several other descendants of Wendel who claim the same ancestry. Some descendants disbelieve this pedigree, and a few have never even heard of the Indian woman. Wendel's second wife was Christina FISCHER. Christina is not mentioned in any of my records and I didn't even know she existed until recently. A relative who disbelieves that Wendel sired children by this Indian woman cites the fact that mixed marriages were illegal. However, no record claims Wendel and this Indian woman were married. Perhaps she was his servant? Also, I have heard that some Indians were exempt from the segregation laws; such as the Pamunkey Tribe, of which Pocahantas was royalty... and certain Cherokee who were deemed 'civilized' and heroic, I assume this means they committed some act which assisted the White settlers. I may be wrong about this, and if I am please let me know. I do know that there are many Cherokee with the surname MILLER-- related to Wendel? If anyone knows anything about this mystery, I'd greatly appreciate your comments. Thank you. Lee :-.)1 Johann immigrated, on 30 September 1754. Destination: an unknown place .4 He married Elizabeth ? at Rowan County, North Carolina, say 1755.3,4 Johann Wendell Müller married Elizabeth ? say 1755 at Rowan County, North Carolina.8 At age 23 Wendel became the father of an unknown person at Rowan County, North Carolina, on 11 November 1756.9,10,11 Johann registered to pay taxes at Rowan County, North Carolina, in 1759.4 He witnessed the immigration of Nicholas Miller and Maria Catharina Waldborn in 1759 at Rowan County, Rowan County, North Carolina; "Nicholas is thought to be the brother of Wendel Miller. He came to Rowan County about 1759. His father and Wendell were already in Rowan County."4 Johann was divorced from Elizabeth ? at Rowan County, North Carolina, say 1770.12 He witnessed an unknown person 's death at Rowan County, North Carolina, say 1770.8 He married Christina Fisher at Rowan County, North Carolina, in 1770.13,14 "Wendell Miller and Johannes Lippert are executors for the will of Lorentz Lengel, written in German and dated 9 Jun 1775."4 After Lord Granville died, the Land Office for the Granville Proprietary closed in 1763. The area was the entire upper half of North Carolina including all of original Rowan County. For 15 years there was no way to obtain title to vacant land in the Granville Proprietary. When the state land office opened in 1778, there was a rush by squatters to enter the land on which they had been living so that they might claim title to it.

WENDEL MILLER'S WILL

In the name of God, Amen.
I, Wendle Miller, of Rowan County and State of N. Carolina, being in sound mind and memory, but weak in body, and knowing that it is appointed unto all men once to die, have thought proper to dispose of my worldly property, with which it has pleased God to bless me, in the following manner, Viz:
1. I give and bequeath to my dearly beloved wife, Christina, one negro girl named Polly, to be her own property as long as my wife shall remain widow, further I give to my wife, Christina, one bed and furniture, one spinning wheel, one iron pot, one pewter dish, six plates and six spoons, the choice of one horse, saddle and bridle, the choice of one cow. It is also my will that my wife shall have and one room in the house wherein I now live, for her own use. The above mentioned articles are to be delivered to my wife whenever my youngest son, David, becomes of age. It is further my will that from the time when my son David comes of age, my son George and Henry shall give unto my wife, Christina, yearly each of them, three bushels of wheat, five bushels of corn, fifty pounds of beef, and twenty five pounds of pork.
2. I give and bequeath to my son Peter, three hundred and sixty Spanish Milled Dollars.
3. I give and bequeath to my son David, the sum of three hundred and fifty Spanish Milled Dollars.
4. I give and bequeath to my sons George and Henry, my plantation whereon I now live, to be divided amongst them in equal shares, so as my son George shall have the lower part, and my son Henry the upper part with the improvements.
5. I give and bequeath to my daughters Catharina, Anna Maria, Susana, Philippina, Elizabeth, Sarah, Rachel, and Christina, to each and every one of them, the sum of one hundred Spanish Milled Dollars. But as my son-in-law, John Brown, has received from me sixty dollars, for which I have a receipt from under his hand, it is my will that these sixty dollars shall be deducted from the above mentioned sum willed to his wife, Catharina and she is only to get forty dollars more.
6. I give and bequeath to my son, Frederick, the sum of twenty five Spanish Milled Dollars.
7. I give and bequeath to my son, John, twenty Spanish Milled Dollars.
8. I give and bequeath to the Second Creek Congregation the sum of fifty dollars. It is further my will, that the negro woman, Patt, shall be hired out yearly for the benefit of my estate; and it is also my will that there shall be no vendue made until my son, David, becomes of age, all my property shall be sold, and the money arising from that sale shall be divided into equal shares amongst all my children, my step-daughter Elizabeth excepted, provided that before this distribution takes place the above mentioned sums are paid and also one hundred dollars to my wife, Christina.
It is my will also, that my wife Christina, shall have the power to furnish out of my estate those of my children which are yet unmarried at the time of their marriage with the same articles with which my married children have been furnished; and if at the time when the above distributions take place any of my children are single yet, they shall be provided for and furnished in the same manner.
It is further my will that if any building or repairs of buildings is necessary it shall be paid out of my estate.
I make, ordain and constitute my friend George Henry Berger, my wife, Christina, and son Philip, Executors of this will, and I empower them to make deeds to my sons George and Henry for the land herein willed. Then I declare this to be my last will and testament and pronounce all others null and void.

Item: I will, order and direct that my personal estate be dived to and in eleven equal shares, to and among my children. to wit, Martin, Christian, Hermanus, Margereta Elizabeth, Christina, Catharina, Margreta Catherina, Eva, Adam, and my two grandsons, Peter and David, to have one share between them of said personal estate, as soon as conveniently may be after my decease. And lastly, I nominate and appoint my loving son Martin Walborn and son-in-law Christopher Kneble, executors of this, my Will and Last Testament. Hereby making void, all former and other will or wills by me heretofore made, declaring this and no other to be and contain my Will and last Testament. In witness whereof, I have hereto set my hand and seal, this twenty-ninth day of March ano domo 1764. Signed, saled, published, pronounced and declared by the within testator Christian Walborn as his Will and Last Testament in the presence of Peter Schanalbli Sabina (X) Snavely Philip Marstiller Sworn before me by Philip Marsteller, on the witnesses, this eleventh of December, 1769.

I would guess (Jan 05) that the second is "our" Nicholas..11 He died in January 1807 at Rowan County, North Carolina, at age 77.1,4 He and Christian Miller Circumstantial evidence links Nickolaus to Christian. On 20 April 1795, the Court of Cabarrus County, NC made a Nicholaus Müller master of Barbara Lingel, an orphan of Conrad Lingel aged 11.5 years. The sale by Wendel Müller of 250 acres on Deitsch Second Creek to son, Philipp Müller, on 5 March 1802, notes that said land is adjacent to a Nicholaus Müller (? - 1807). Pastor Carl August Bottlieb Storch notes that he buried the wife of a Nicholaus Müller on 22 (?) February (?) 1796. The will of Nicholaus Müller was written on 13 January 1807 and probated in 1807 (see page 68). Said will refers to sons, Christian Müller and Johannes Müller and to 'sons and daughters.' Johannes Müller (27 May 1771 - 17 Nov 1854 Union County, IL) (St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church C.) and Christian Müller (ante 1770-November 1844 Union County, IL) (Probate Box M-209), both migrated to the Deitsch colony in Union County, IL. Christian Müller is enumerated in the 1820, 1830 and 1840 Federal census schedules of Union County, IL. According to the 1830 and 1840 census schedules he was born ante 1770. His brother, Johannes Müller, is enumerated in the 1850 Federal Census Schedule of Union County, IL. The census schedule states that he was born 1771 in NC. The testament of a Nicholaus Müller was administered by a Christian Müller (Book B, page 174) in the year 1786 in Berks County, PA.3 Johann Nickolaus Muller was Lutheran, then perhaps Evangelische Brüdergemeine (Unitas Fratrum.)3
