John Miller / Johannes Muller

 
 

Born: 25 Mar 1726, Pennsylvania
Died:  14 Feb 1780, Friedburg, Rowan County, NC

 

 

                           

Johannes Muller was born 25 Mar 1726 in Pennsylvania.  His father, George Muller, lived in Bergelbach, Nassau, Germany  before coming to Pennsylvania.  Johannes eventually shortened his name to John Miller. 

                             

John married Maria/Mary Magdalena Faber in 1746 in Pennsylvania.  Mary's parents were Michael Faber and Sarah Meinhert from Durlack, Baden, Germany.  She was born 14 Jun 1735 in Lancaster Co, PA.

                             

In time, John and Mary decided to relocate from Pennsylvania to North Carolina - more than likely traveling down the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, before settling in North Carolina. 

 
                             

After their arrival in NC, John and Mary settled in the area around South Fork near Muddy Creek in Rowan County, NC, where they joined the Moravian Church and were members of the Friedberg or South Fork Society which was formed in 1771.  The church is currently located in Davidson County, NC.

                             
                             

John was listed on the 1773 Rowan County tax list as paying a poll tax on himself and his two sons, Heinrich (Henry) and Michael.  A Poll Tax was a capital tax levied on every adult in the community that provided financing for many communities until well into the 1800s.

 
                             
Johannes and Maria had 13 children.
