I would like to communicate with any person on this HARROD forum who has "family history info" on the RACHAEL MILLS - who married LEVI HARROD. I am interested finding proof that Rachael Mills and her brother JOHN MILLS were really the children of a MICHAEL MILLS of Wales. I am also interested in finding a family history on this brother - JOHN MILLS.
From my research on my own MILLS family, I find it possible that RACHAEL MILLS -b:22-Oct-1752 may be closely related (possibly a sibling) to an ELIJAH MILLS - b:05-Sept-1757, in Frederick Co., MD.
This ELIJAH MILLS (above)is found bet. 1780 - 1785 in the book "The Ten Mile Country and It's Pioneer Families" by Howard Leckey and so is LEVI HARROD.This Ten Mile Country area was first in Washington Co., PA but later became Green Co., PA. Several other Mills males are named in this book, John, Joseph, Thomas, Isaac, Amos, Gilbert and Edward Mills, as also living in the "Ten Mile Country" of PA. WERE ANY OF THESE MILLS MEN, SIBLINGS OF RACHAEL (MILLS) HARROD??
This ELIJAH MILLS was both a PVT. and a LIEUT.in the Fronier Rangers / PA Militia - in the Revolutionary War, serving under Capt. Benjamin STITES. The PA Militia Muster Roll Records also show that LEVI HERROD / HARROD served under LIEUT. ELIJAH MILLS, in the PA Frontier Rangers.
In 1788, Elijah MILLS and a Jacob MILLS joined the Capt. Benjamin STITES Expedition - a Group from Pennsylvania to Columbia, Hamilton Co., Ohio and according to the "History of Hamilton Co., OH" - this STITES group was among the first settlers to this Ohio area.
Does anyone know the year that Levi and Rachael (Mills) Harrod arrived in Ohio??? I have read all posts that I can find on this Forum that names Levi and Rachael (Mills) Harrod's children. So, I have names - but no birthdates, etc.. I have also noted that at least two of these children married MILLS'S and one married a STOCKTON / STOTEN. I am interested in all info known on these "specific" children and their families. I have info on a Joseph Mills who married a Jane Stoten - and I am trying to connect this couple with the Mills's from PA. Thanks for any help on all this. Judy Mills Boie - Minnesota
