Miller Research Update

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 


Stewart Miller, Julie’s close Miller cousin match, was recently linked to a new DNA match. The new match is a descendant of Henry W. Miller’s daughter - Margaret C. Miller. This new match is not sharing DNA with Julie. As a result this new ancestor discovery allows to us to eliminate Margaret C. 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:
  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.  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.

  7. Blanche Miller, daughter, b. 1879 Pennsylvania.

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.
