I don't have much on Peter Millen; in fact, I didn't even know who his wife was until I read your post.It explains some of the notes I have on him:
(1) Peter Millen (along with Christopher Gugel) witnessed the will of David Valloton in 1795. Peter Millen witnessed the will of John Gugel (shoemaker) in 1786.
Chatham Co. GA Will Book C.John Gugel had nine children listed in the will.Gugel's wife, Mary Ann; dtr., Salome Millen; son, Christopher Gugel. Salome Gugel Millen may have been Peter's wife.Peter may be Gottleib Peter Millen.
Notes for Gottleib Peter Millen: Gottlieb was born before day, and baptized the same day.Sponsors were George FAUL, ZIMMEREBENER and Mrs. Gertraud BOLTZIUS (Ebenezer Record Book).
1785: Godlib and Sally Google's marriage announcement; Georgia Gazette 10/13/1785 (Warren 1968).
Godlieb MILLEN appears on the 1790 Chatham Co., GA tax digest.
I am assuming he is the same person as Godlieb MILLEN who lived in the Cherokee Hill District of Chatham Co., in 1798 & 1799 (tax records); and is the same person as Gottlieb Peter MILLEN who married Salome GUGEL in 1785. BUT--there was a Gotleib MILLEN listed on the Chatham Co., GA tax digest for 1816!was he the son of this man?
1807:Godlip MILLEN, aged 46 died of "apoplexy or something like it."He was born in Chatham Co. (Register of Deaths in Savannah 1983).
Admins of his estate:Sarah MILLEN and Christian GUGEL. Francis H. McLEOD was admin of the estate. Adam COPE was guardian of the minor children in 1811. Jacob WALDBURG was guardian of John MILLEN in 1820. John Christopher GUGEL & David GUGEL were guardians of John, Hetty, and Frederick in 1817.
--It seems to me, now knowing that your Peter Millen m. a Gugel, that Peter and Gottleib Peter are probably the same person.Let me know what you think.
Gottleib's father was Stephen Millen (b. bef 1740 - d. 1788 in Chatham Co., GA. Notes for Stephen Millen: Who was the John MILLEN was born in Aberdeen, Scotland in 1757 (m. Rosannah).....What relation was he to Stephen MILLEN?Stephen's son John was born in Aberdeen in 1761.
Stephen's father may have been French or Scots & moved to Germany or Holland. He was married before Feb 1758. He resided at Effingham Co., GA. He received colonial grants in 1758, 1760, 1761, 1767, 1769; present in Georgia in 1775; died 1788 (EBENEZER RECORD BOOK; COLONIAL RECORDS OF THE STATE OF GEORGIA - 7; ENGLISH CROWN GRANTS IN ST. MATTHEWS PARISH IN GEORGIA 1755-1775; THE JOURNALS OF HENRY MELCHOIR MUHLENBERG, VOL 2, ed. Tappert & Doberstein, Philadelphia, 1948; GEORGIA GAZETTE 2/7/1788).
Another reference:He is mentioned in "Tubinger Kapsel," which is part of Halle Missionsarchiv stored in Tulingen during WWII, Universitat Tulingen.
A Stephen MILLEN's property was three miles from Ebenezer, GA.During the Revolutionary War, it was plundered by a troop of 70 men under Col. JACKSON; these men may have been British soldiers, or renegades from either army.
He was a planter. Admins of his estate:1788 - Catherine Millen and John Millen1789 - George Millen.His obit describes him as an industrous planter and worthy man.Probable death date is 7 Feb 1788.
