Notes for Christopher Miller:
Christopher was said to born abt 1772-73
1791 Sept 12 George Miller was taxed for himself and one male age 16-21. Another George Miller, called Senior was taxed on the same day, as was a John Miller.
This supports the contention that John was the eldest son and was born circa 1770. And the second son was at least 16 in 1789, but on yet 21 in 1791. so was born between 1772-73.This could be Christopher.
Family records says that Christopher was married in Tenn.
There is said to be a Christopher Miller buried next to George and Elizabeth Miller in Crocus,Adair Co.Ky.

1810 Christopher was enumerated next to his brother John in the U.S. census of Cumberland County KY: 10010-3101
1 male 0-10 3 females 0-10
1 male 26-45 1 female 10-16
1 female 26-45
He had one daughter aged 10-16. By 1821 two of his daughters had married. It is likely that the elder of these two girls, probably Nancy
was born ca 1798. Her parents Christopher and Hannah probably married ca 1797. Based on the statistical average age of men at first
marriage, 24, places the birth of Christopher ca 1773 which matches the evidence cited above rather well. (Lineages) There, it is likely that
George and Elizabeth had John ca 1770, Christopher ca 1773, Jacob ca 1776, Moses 1780, Mathias 1781, henry 1784, Adam 1785, Aaron in 1786, David ca 1790, and Solomon 1796.
A researcher (Etta Jane Hays) says that his will was probated 1815 in Gumberland Go. KY
1818 on March 5 a commissioners' deed was made to the heirs of Christopher Miller, deceased for lots in Campbellsburg. The heirs were named in a deed from John and Elizabeth Miller dated 1 June 1821, to Hannah Miller (this should be Christphers wife) Thomas Hamilton and wife Nancy, John Lawless and wife Sally, Polly Miller, Ruth Miller, John Miller Jr., George Miller and
William Jaxen Miller. Hannah was apparently the widow of Christopher because she was named first. The children of Christopher and Hannah were Nancy (married hamilton), Sally (married Lawless), Polly, Ruth, John, George,
and William Jaxen. The children may be named in birth order in the
deed, because in 1810 Christopher and Hannah had only one son in their family, yet three sons were named by the commissioners. These conclusions are tentatively confirmed by the enumeration of Hannah
Miller in the 1820
U.S. census of Cumberland County, KY
1820 Fed. census of Cumberland county KY
Hannah Miller:2 males 0-10 1 female 10-16
1 male 10-16 1 female 16-26 1 female 26-45
