   CHRISTIAN1 MILLER, born Nov. 20, 1670, and his wife Anna Margaret Miller, born Nov. 30, 1680, came to America on the ship "Joyce", and arrived at Philadelphia, Pa. Nov. 30, 1730. Christian Miller participated with the early settlers of his period in many of the contests and treaties with Indians. Their children, all born in the "Fatherland", were:

   1 Anlia2 Miller, born 1712
   2 ANDREW2 MILLER, born 1717, married Margaretha Funk
   3 Anna Barbara2 Miller, born 1719

   ANDREW2 MILLER (Christian1) was born in Germany in 1717, and came to America with his parents in 1730. He married Nov. 5, 1738, Margaretha Funk. By patents from the Penns, Andrew Miller received 320 acres of land in Lancaster county, Pa. His name appears on the tax lists of Lebanon township in 1750. During the French and Indian War Andrew Miller was a Lieutenant in Capt. Dill's company, Col. Benjamin Chamber's regiment of Lancaster county, 1747-8. He died about June 1, 1754.

Miller, sr., became possessed of the bulk of his father's real estate and on a portion of it, in the year 1762, laid out and established the town of Annville, known as Millerstown for a century or more. It is now quite a little city, with a college and flourishing industries within its environments. He was married by the Rev. John Waldsmidt, pastor of Cocalico, Maiden Creek, Selternreich and Wesiachenland churches, to Rebecca, daughter of Philip Epprecht. He removed to Cumberland county and purchased a tract of land in Allen township on the Yellow Breeches Creek called "Round Hill" from the fact that on this tract is a very perfect sugar loaf shaped hill. He died in 1805, and lies buried on the apex of this hill. He purchased this tract May 1, 1777, and is assessed first in Allen township in 1778. He was a Revolutionary soldier.
