4. Henry Miller

Henry Miller was born about 1751 and was married to Catherine at the time of his death in 1821, her maiden name is unknown. One of the executors of his will was his brother Michael, which was determined by matching the signature of Micheal on the will with other known signatures of Michael Miller. This was used to help confirm that this Henry is the son Herman Miller. Also, other known Henry Miller’s born in York County were born in or after 1756, making them too young to be the father of the oldest daughter Catherine who was born in 1771. Therefore, I am fairly certain this Henry is the son of Herman and Catherine. His will lists 12 children and they are Catherine, Elizabeth, Susanna, Molly, Henry, John, Margaret, Eve, Jacob, Daniel, Mary and Justina. Henry also resided in Shrewsbury Twp and owned 80 acres according to the tax records. He passed away in early 1821 based on the fact his will was proven on July 16, 1821.  His youngest brother Michael Miller was the executor to his estate.
