A newer response. I'd decided to dig in and see what I could learn about
Frederick Miller. Per early censuses he'd have been born about 1740 or before.
To hunt for him 1790 I had 4 to pick from in NY, spelling Miller, and found 1
at Middletown, Ulster Co. I don't know offhand if that's the same Middletown as
in what became Delaware Co, but I sure saw many same familiar surnames on that
page. His sons that I've found were all born NY, earliest about 1778, but I
don't know where he came from or if he had been a Muller, Mueller. I'd just
about bet that at least some of the oldtimer Delaware Millers were related,
maybe brothers - but I don't know diddly about any of those, either.
Wood. I dug some last night, have a sorta Miller-related Wood. I learned that
many/most early Delaware County Woods seem to have come from CT.
But not this one: A Benjamin Wood & Rachel were parents of Lois, all born
somewhere in RI. Lois married Samuel Tiffany III; their daughter Phebe married
John C Miller, son of Frederick Miller II and Rebecca Cook. Cook is how I came
into Delaware County after the revolution.

I've been reading about Delaware Co Miller families so I'm adding my search
to the list.
I'm still looking for John Miller who married Hannah Harper probably sometime
during the late 1700's early 1800's. I don't know if John is his proper
or not, but I assume that it is. My information is per their son Simeon's
Civil War Military Record stating Simeon's county of birth and names of
parents. I don't know of any siblings to Simeon.
So apparently this Miller family resided in Delaware County NY during the
early 1800's when Simeon was born abt 1809. I have found that in 1860 Simeon
had only resided in Greene Co for 11 years. He married Greene Co resident
Margaret Van Dusen and both are buried in the Huntersfield Cemetery,
Are there any Millers or Harpers out there to claim me?? Help!! I've been
trying to track down my Miller "grandparents" for the last 5 years!!
