The Henry H. Miller & Lydia Shoup DNA Cluster - Update

We are grateful to the researchers that made their research available to others. We are also grateful to the folks that have collaborated with us over the last year. This DNA cluster update would not be possible without them. 

In early January 2016 we identified that Julie was a descendant of Henry H. Miller and Lydia Shoup. To view the original post visit the article The Henry H. Miller & Lydia Shoup DNA Cluster.

Over the last year Julie and her Miller cousins have been linked to other descendants of Henry H. Miller and Lydia Shoup. To date Julie's closest Miller DNA match is a descendant of Henry H. Miller and Lydia Shoup's son - Henry Washington Miller.

Henry Washington Miller is the father of at least sixteen known children. These new DNA matches have allowed us to eliminate some of Henry Washington Miller's children from our search. The amount of DNA shared between Julie and the descendants eliminates them as direct line ancestors. To view the most recent update featuring the siblings that are eliminated visit Miller Research Update - Orion Edgar Miller.

Miller Research Update - Orion Edgar Miller

Using DNA Cluster analysis we were able to determine that Julie is a descendant of Henry H. Miller and Lydia Shoup. Julie currently shares DNA with two children of Henry H. Miller and Lydia Shoup – their son Henry Washington Miller and their daughter Lucy Ann Miller. DNA analysis indicates that Julie is more closely related to the descendants of Henry Washington Miller. Henry W. Miller will serve as the starting point to researching the greater Miller family.

New Miller DNA Match 

Recently we identified a new DNA match. This new match shares DNA with Julie and two of her Miller cousins. This is the first DNA match identified from Henry W. Miller's second marriage to Ellen M. King.

The new match is a descendant of Henry W. Miller  & Ellen M. King's son - Orion Edgar Miller. Julie is a 3rd Cousin match to Julie. Based on the genetic distance between Julie and the and this new match Orion Edgar Miller is eliminated as a possible ancestor for Julie.

Henry W. Miller Family Groups 

Henry Washington Miller is the father of at least sixteen known children.  The descendant lines that are currently eliminated from the search are shown in strike through text below.  

First Marriage to Emeline Weaver:
  1. Sarah E. Miller, daughter, b. May 26, 1866 Beaver Valley, Forest County, Pennsylvania.  Sarah E. Miller is eliminated as an ancestor as Julie does not share DNA with her descendants. 
  2. Warren Washington Miller, son, b. December 31, 1868 Forest County, Pennsylvania.  Warren Washington Miller is eliminated as an ancestor to Julie based on the amount of DNA Julie shares with his known descendants.
  3. Margaret C. Miller, daughter, b. 1870 Pennsylvania.  Margaret C. Miller is eliminated as an ancestor as Julie does not share DNA with her descendants. 
  4. Florence Miller, daughter, b. 1873 Pennsylvania. 
  5. George B. Miller, son, b. February 2, 1875 Forest County, Pennsylvania. George B. Miller is most likely eliminated as an ancestor to Julie based on his location and the location of his known descendants.

Julie’s Connection to the Miller Family

The two cousins that Julie currently shares the most DNA with are both descendants of Warren Washington Miller, a son of the first marriage to Emeline Weaver. Julie’s link to the Miller family could possibly be through a descendant of the first marriage to Emeline Weaver or the second marriage to Ellen M. King.

Miller Research Update - Sarah E. Miller

Using DNA Cluster analysis we were able to determine that Julie is a descendant of Henry H. Miller and Lydia Shoup. Julie currently shares DNA with two children of Henry H. Miller and Lydia Shoup – their son Henry Washington Miller and their daughter Lucy Ann Miller. DNA analysis indicates that Julie is more closely related to the descendants of Henry Washington Miller. Henry W. Miller will serve as the starting point to researching the greater Miller family.

New Miller DNA Match 

Another one of Julie’s close Miller cousins was recently linked to a new DNA match. The new match is a descendant of Henry W. Miller’s daughter - Sarah E. Miller. This new match is not sharing DNA with Julie. As a result this new ancestor discovery allows to us to eliminate Sarah E. Miller as a possible ancestor for Julie.

Henry W. Miller Family Groups 

Henry Washington Miller is the father of at least sixteen known children.  The descendant lines that are currently eliminated from the search are shown in strike through text below.  

First Marriage to Emeline Weaver:

The Henry Westfall DNA Cluster

Earlier this fall Julie’s DNA profile at Ancestry.com showed a new 3rd cousin match. This cousin match thankfully had a public family tree. This new match was also a “Shared Match”. This means that both Julie and the match were linked to the same 3rd and 4th cousins. Thankfully some of those additional matches also had public family trees. A public family tree means that the researcher has opted to share their research with other Ancestry.com members.

After spending some time reviewing the family trees associated with the matches a common surname stood out – Westfall. Based on the data available in the Ancestry.com trees Julie's DNA matches are descendants of Henry Westfall and his wife Ellen.

Who is Henry Westfall?

Henry Westfall was born about 1825. Some source list his state of birth as Pennsylvania and others list his state of birth as New York. The first confirmed reference to Henry Westfall is the 1860 United States Federal Census. He is enumerated with his wife Ellen in  Limestone, Warren County, Pennsylvania. The household also included the couple's four oldest children.

From preliminary searches Ellen’s surname has been been verified. She is sometimes recorded several ways as Ellen McGee and in other records she is recorded as Ellen Dias. All of these records are based on secondary sources - which could be a contributing factor to why her surname is recorded in two different ways. Ellen was born about 1833 in Pennsylvania.

The 1870 United States Federal Census documents the family living in Limestone, Warren County, Pennsylvania. The 1880 United States Federal Census documents the family living in Watson, Warren County, Pennsylvania. Henry is recorded as a farmer in the 1860 through 1880 census records.

Ellen was recorded as a widow in the 1900 United States Federal Census living in Watson, Warren County, Pennsylvania. The census indicates that Henry and Ellen had 11 children, 10 who were living in 1900. All of the children were born in Pennsylvania:
  1. Henry B. Westfall – born about 1851 
  2. Ellen Barbara Westfall – born about 1853 
  3. Adeline Westfall – born about 1857 
  4. Thomas M. Westfall – born about 1861 
  5. Elizabeth A. Westfall – born about 1863. She may also have gone by “Lizzie” 
  6. Lucy Westfall – born about 1865 
  7. George Richard Westfall – born between 1867-1868 
  8. Etta Minnie Westfall – born about 1871 
  9. Herman Westfall – born about 1873 
  10. Mary Westfall – born about 1876 
  11. Unknown Westfall – died prior to the 1900 United States Federal Census. 
How does Julie Link to the Westfall Family?

Julie currently has four DNA matches that descend from three children of Henry Westfall and Ellen:
  • Two DNA matches linked to descendants of Ellen Barbara Westfall initially estimated to be 3rd cousin and a 4th cousin 
  • One DNA match linked to a descendant of George Richard Westfall initially estimated to be a 3rd cousin. 
  • One DNA match linked  to a descendant of Etta Minnie initially estimated to be a 4th cousin. 
Julie is also sharing DNA with one additional match that is also likely a descendant of Henry Westfall and Ellen via their daughter Elizabeth. This match is also linked to the other matches mentioned above. To determine if this theory is correct a triangulation exercise would need to be completed to verify the shared DNA segments between the descendants of Elizabeth and matches with proven ancestry to Henry Westfall and Ellen.

The chart below shows the matches in the Westfall cluster and their relationships to Julie:

MB Boutiques: Discovering Sally Ann &emdash;
The Henry Westfall DNA Cluster
The chart shows the link between Julie and the known Westfalls contains several gaps. One positive note is the matches that Julie shares are in the 3rd to 4th cousin range. As a result it is plausible to conclude that Henry Westfall and Ellen are a set of Julie’s distant grandparents and her family descends from one of their eleven children.

Additional Matches to the Westfall Cluster

In addition to the matches highlighted above Julie has several other DNA matches that are linked to both her and the matches shown in the cluster. Hopefully in time the connection to those other matches will be understood – allowing additional branches of the family to be crossed off.

Connecting with Cousins!

Julie initially completed her AncestryDNA test in the summer of 2014. After her results came back we connected with a 2nd cousin match, Stewart Miller. Stewart pointed us to his cousin Clinton who agreed to take a DNA test.

Although we don't know exactly how Julie links to the cousins - they share a common set of grandparents several generations back - Henry H. Miller and Lydia Shoup. Stewart and Clinton have both welcomed Julie into their extended family.

Julie's cousin Clinton is a very talented photographer. You can check our his work at Photos by C.M. Recently, he traveled to Pennsylvania and New York to photograph the fall colors.  He included a stop in North East, Pennsylvania to see Julie and her family. The two had a great visit! They traveled to Cleveland, Ohio to visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The Miller Family: Henry W. Miller

Using DNA Cluster analysis we were able to determine that Julie is a descendant of Henry H. Miller and Lydia Shoup. Julie currently shares DNA with two children of Henry H. Miller and Lydia Shoup – their son Henry Washington Miller and their daughter Lucy Ann Miller. DNA analysis indicates that Julie is more closely related to the descendants of Henry Washington Miller. Henry W. Miller will serve as the starting point to researching the greater Miller family.

The Early Years


Henry Washington Miller, the son of Henry Miller and Lydia Shoup, was born July 4, 1836 in Pennsylvania. His date of birth and parents’ names are recorded on his death certificate. The 1850 United States Federal Census records the 13 year old Henry living with his parents in Beaver, Clarion County, Pennsylvania. The family was enumerated September 18, 1850. Henry H. Miller is recorded as head of household age 50. The household included Lydia age 51, Mary age 19, Esther age 17, Clara age 12, Judy age 10, and Lucy age 6. The girls are presumed to be Henry W. Miller’s sisters. The 1850 United States Federal Census did not record the relationship of individuals to the head of household. Henry H. Miller was recorded as a farmer. All of the children in the household attended school in the census year.

Marriage to Emeline Weaver


The next historical reference to Henry W. Miller is the 1860 United States Federal Census. He is enumerated as the head of household in Licking Township, Clarion County, Pennsylvania. The post office for the area is recorded as Callenburg. The household consisted of Henry, age 23, and Emeline age 17. The 1860 United States Federal Census did not record the relationship of individuals to the head of household. Given their ages and that the couple is living together it can be inferred that Emeline is Henry's wife. Henry is recorded as a boat builder with an estate valued at $50. The census indicates that Henry and Emeline were born in Pennsylvania.

The date of the marriage between Henry W. Miller and Emeline is currently unknown. The marriage would have occurred prior to August 20, 1860 when the couple was enumerated in the 1860 United States Federal Census. Emeline’s maiden name is currently known to be Emeline Weaver. Her maiden is referenced in historical records associated with her children. She is recorded as Emeline Weaver in her son George B. Miller’s marriage record. This reference to her would have been based on firsthand source information as George would have included her name in the marriage record. Her maiden name is also recorded as Weaver on her son Warren Washington Miller's death record. This reference to her would have been based on second hand source information as the death certificate would have been completed by an individual who knew Warren Washington Miller.

An official marriage record for the couple has not been located at this time. This document if located would offer additional perspective on Emeline’s surname, the names of her parents and possibly additional details on her birth location.

The events of the United States Civil War impacted Henry and Emeline. The Pennsylvania Veterans Burial Cards indicate that Henry served in the United States Civil War. The notes on his burial card indicate on August 23, 1862 Henry W. Miller joined the 155th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, Company A. He remained in service until April 10, 1863. These details have not been further verified against other Civil War records. It is currently not known where Emeline was living during the period when Henry served in the Union Army.

Record for Henry Miller
The first recorded child born to the couple was Sarah E. Miller born May 26, 1866 in Beaver Valley, Forest County, Pennsylvania. The next child born was Warren Washington Miller born December 31, 1868 in Forest County, Pennsylvania. Followed by Margaret C. Miller was born 1870 – very likely in Forest County, Pennsylvania.

The 1870 United States Federal Census records Henry W. Miller as the head of household. The family was enumerated in Hickory Township, Forest County, Pennsylvania on August 17, 1870. The post office is recorded as Tionesta, Forest County. Henry is recorded as age 35, Emeline age 27, daughter Sarah E. age 4, son Warren W. age 2 and daughter Margaret born in the census year. It should be noted that the 1870 United States did not record the relationship of individuals to the head of household. The relationships are inferred based on the ages of the children. Henry W. Miller was recorded as a laborer and Emeline is recorded as keeping house. Henry’s personal estate is valued at $50. The census indicates all members of the household were born in Pennsylvania.

Following the 1870 United States Census the Henry W. Miller and Emeline Weaver had four more documented children. A daughter, Florence, was born 1873 in Pennsylvania. A son, George B. Miller, was born February 2, 1875 in Forest County, Pennsylvania. A son, Wilbur Jonathan Miller, was born February 20, 1877 in Whig Hill, Forest County, Pennsylvania. A daughter, Blanche Miller, was born 1879 in Pennsylvania.

The 1880 United Stated Federal Census records Henry W. Miller as the head of household in Beaver Valley, Forest County, Pennsylvania. The family was enumerated on June 5, 1880. Henry W. was recorded as age 44, Emeline age 38, daughter Sarah E. age 14, son Warren age 12, daughter Margaret C. age 10, daughter Florence age 7, son George B. age 5, son Wilbur J. age 4 and daughter Blanche age 1. The 1880 United States Federal Census was the first census to record the relationship of the individuals in the household to the head of household. This census validates Emeline as Henry’s wife. The census also validates the children recorded in the previous census as Henry's. Henry was recorded as a farmer and Emeline was recorded as keeping house. The children Sarah E. and Margaret C. attended school. The census indicated all members of the household were born in Pennsylvania.

Tragedy and Second Marriage to Ellen M. King


Tragedy struck the family after the 1880 census was enumerated. Emeline Weaver died sometime between June 1880 and 1884. The cause of death and burial location for Emeline Weaver are currently unknown. It is plausible that Emeline Weaver is buried in a cemetery in Hickory Township, Forest County, Pennsylvania or neighboring Kingsley Township, Forest County, Pennsylvania. Further research into burial records for cemeteries in these areas may offer perspective on her burial location.

Historical records indicate that Henry W. Miller married his second wife Ellen between 1884 and 1888. The 1900 United States indicates the couple had been married for 16 years. This places their marriage about 1884. In this case Ellen would have been about 26 years old when she married the 48 year old Henry W. Miller. The 1910 United States Federal Census indicated that Ellen was married for 22 years. That would indicate that Ellen was married about 1888.

A marriage record has been located for the marriage of a Henry W. Miller born 1836 in Clarion County, Pennsylvania to a Ellen M. Lamb. The said Henry W. Miller was living in Hickory Township. The marriage occurred 18 June 1888 in Warren, Pennsylvania.

Historical records associated with Ellen’s children indicate her maiden name was Ellen M. King. Ellen’s maiden name is documented based on firsthand source information in the social security application for her daughter Alice May Miller. Ellen is recorded as the daughter of William King and Clarinda Beach. The informant on her death certificate was Ellen Bean. Ellen Bean, born Ellen Elizabeth Hunter, is a granddaughter of Henry Miller and Emeline Weaver. Ellen M. King's death certificate would have been based on second hand information. Ellen's surname of King is also recorded on the her daughter Lydia C. Miller's death certificate which would also be second hand source of information.

It is plausible that the marriage record for the 18 June 1888 marriage is for the marriage of Henry W. Miller and Ellen M. King – as the marriage record aligns with Henry W. Miller’s birth year, birth location and residence at the time. Further research would be needed to determine if Henry W. Miller and Ellen were married in a church but didn’t officially document their marriage until 1888. Further research is also needed to verify the surname of Lamb. The surname could be an error in the original record or an indicator that Ellen was previously married.

Although the exact date of the marriage is unknown it should be noted that the first recorded child from the marriage of Henry W. Miller and Ellen King was Lydia C. Miller born January 1886. Lydia's death certificate indicates her mother was Ellen King. This would suggest that Emeline Weaver was deceased prior to January 1886. It could also be inferred that Henry married Ellen prior to 1886 and the 1888 Pennsylvania marriage record was a formality. Forest County in the mid 1880's would have been a very rural area.

Although the exact marriage date is unknown Henry most likely married Ellen soon after the death of Emeline Weaver. Henry had several young children and as he had would have needed assistance maintaining his household and caring for his young family.

Unfortunately the 1890 United States Federal Census for Pennsylvania was lost in the fire that occurred on January 10, 1921. The next historical reference to Henry W. Miller is the 1900 United States Federal Census. Henry W. Miller is recorded as the head of household in Hickory Township, Forest County, Pennsylvania. The family was enumerated June 8, 1900. Henry W. is record as age 64. His wife is recorded as Ellen M. Miller born June 1859 age 40. The census indicates Henry and Ellen were married for 16 years – indicating their marriage occured about 1884. The census indicated that Ellen had 9 children and 8 were living in 1900. Included in the household:
  • Lydia C. Miller listed as daughter born January 1886 age 14. 
  • Martin L. Miller listed as son born August 1887 age 12. 
  • Francis H. Miller listed as son born March 1889 age 11. 
  • Orion E. Miller listed as son born January 1891 age 9. 
  • Winnie T. Miller listed as daughter born April 1893 age 7. 
  • Stephen L. Miller listed as son born October 1896 age 4. 
  • Alice M. Miller listed as daughter born May 1898 age 2. 
All of the children were born in Pennsylvania. Henry W. was recorded as a farmer. Children Lydia G., Martin L., Francis H., Orion E., and Winnie T. attended school. The family was living in an owned home with a mortgage. The family lived on a farm that was recorded as no 18 on the farm schedule.

The children from his first marriage were not enumerated in the household. Additionally a son from his second marriage, Vern M. Miller, was also not living with the household in 1910.

Henry W. Miller died on April 9, 1910 in Hickory Township, Forest County, Pennsylvania. The informant on his death certificate was W. J. Miller, his son Wilbur Jonathan Miller, from his first marriage. At that time Wilbur J. Miller was living in Kellettville, Forest County, Pennsylvania. Henry W. Miller was buried April 12, 1910 at Riverside East Hickory Cemetery located in East Hickory, Forest County, Pennsylvania.

Ellen M. King was enumerated in the 1910 United States Federal Census with her children ten days after Henry died. She is recorded as the head of household in Hickory Township, Forest County, Pennsylvania. The following individuals were included in the household:
  • Vern M. Miller, son, age 22. 
  • Frank H. Miller, son, age 21. 
  • Fridie [Winifred] Miller, daughter, age 17. 
  • Steven Miller, son, age 13. 
  • Alice Miller, daughter, age 11. 
  • Wash. Gulbraeth [possibly Washington] a boarder age 55. 
Ellen was recorded as working for as a housekeeper for a private family earning a wage. Her son Vern M. was working as a farm laborer and Frank H. was working as a log cutter. Her younger children Steven and Alice attended school. The family was living in a rented home. It appears sometime between 1900 and 1910 Henry W. Miller sold the farm the family owned.

Ellen outlived her husband by 29 years. She died March 16, 1939 in Kingsley, Forest County, Pennsylvania. She was buried March 20, 1939 at Riverside East Hickory Cemetery located in East Hickory, Forest County, Pennsylvania.


Henry W. Miller Family Groups 


To review what we have identified to date - Henry Washington Miller is the father of at least sixteen known children.

First Marriage to Emeline Weaver:
  1. Sarah E. Miller, daughter, b. May 26, 1866 Beaver Valley, Forest County, Pennsylvania. 
  2. Warren Washington Miller, son, b. December 31, 1868 Forest County, Pennsylvania. 
  3. Margaret C. Miller, daughter, b. 1870 Pennsylvania. 
  4. Florence Miller, daughter, b. 1873 Pennsylvania. 
  5. George B. Miller, son, b. February 2, 1875 Forest County, Pennsylvania. 
  6. Wilbur J. Miller, son, b. February 20, 1877 Whig Hill, Forest County, Pennsylvania. 
  7. Blanche Miller, daughter, b. 1879 Pennsylvania. 
Given that Henry and Emeline were married by 1860 it is plausible that other children may have been born before Sarah E. Miller’s birth in 1866 and died before 1870 United States Federal Census was recorded. It is also plausible that all of the children from the first marriage were born in Forest County, Pennsylvania as Henry was living in Forest County, Pennsylvania when the 1870, 1880 and 1900 United States Federal Census was enumerated.

Second Marriage to Ellen M. King:
  1. Lydia Clarinda Miller, daughter, b. January 9, 1886 Hickory, Forest County, Pennsylvania. 
  2. Martin L. Miller, son, b. August 1887 Pennsylvania. 
  3. Vern M. Miller, son, b. August 30, 1887 Pennsylvania. 
  4. Francis Henry Miller, son, b. March 24, 1889 Forest County, Pennsylvania. 
  5. Orion Edgar Miller, son, b. Jan 1891 Hickory, Forest County, Pennsylvania. 
  6. Winnie T. Miller, daughter, b. April 11, 1893 Pennsylvania. 
  7. Stephen L. Miller, son, b. April 29, 1895 Pennsylvania. 
  8. Alice May Miller, daughter, b. May 1, 1898 Forest County, Pennsylvania. 
  9. Unknown Miller, unknown, b. before June 8, 1900 
At this time the only reference located determine Martin L. Miller's age is the 1900 United States Federal Census. Further verification is needed to determine if Martin L. Miller and Vern M. Miller were twin brothers. It is plausible that the children from the second marriage were born in Forest County, Pennsylvania as Henry was living in Forest County, Pennsylvania when 1900 United States Federal Census was enumerated. The family was also living in Forest County, Pennsylvania in 1910.


Julie’s Connection to the Miller Family


The two cousins that Julie currently shares the most DNA with are both descendants of Warren Washington Miller, a son of the first marriage to Emeline Weaver. Julie’s link to the Miller family could possibly be through a descendant of the first marriage to Emeline Weaver or the second marriage to Ellen M. King.

The next step will be to research each of the children or in genealogy terms each line in more detail. Researching these families provides historical context to the size of the families. Historical records can also offer perspective to where the families were living and if the families relocated over the years.

In time it may be possible to connect with descendants from each line. As more individuals pursue DNA testing to learn about their genetic heritage we may also be able to locate descendants that have had their DNA tested. Comparing their DNA with Julie’s would provide perspective on their relationship to Julie. If the genetic distance is understood we may be able to determine if the individual is a distant cousin or possibly a match to Julie’s direct ancestral line.
