Am very interested in this John Valentine Mills.I'm trying to determine the children of Jacob and Elijah Mills who seem to have been brothers and lived in Butler co. Ohio. Elijah was born in 1757 in Frederick Co., MD and served in the Rev. War.Jacob appears to have been older than Elijah.Both Elijah (my ancestor) and Jacob Mills are found in Washington / Green Co., PA.They were associated with Benjamin Stites and were in the group he led to Ohio in Nov. 1788.
Living in the same neighborhood as Elijah Mills in Butler Co., OH was a John V. Mills born 1780/1790.Through Butler County land records, I've found that his middle name was Valentine.Found John V. Mills in Darke County in 1850 census and his age goes along with the age of John Valentine Mills in Butler County.Other Mills' from Butler ended up in Randolph Co., IN, which borders Darke Co.
Any possibility that the John Valentine Mills in Butler County is the same one that married Elizabeth Doty?Do you have any information on the parents of John V. Mills?
