!NOTES:Obituary of John Muller from the Moravian records (sent to me by Cecilia Brown).

"The Lebenslauf of John Muller, 1726-1780
Translated from his death entry in Friedberg Register A, Page 6, #19,
which is housed in the Moravian Archives, Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
Translated by Elizabeth Marx, August 1987.
Copyright: The Archives of the Moravian Church in America, Southern
Province. All rights reserved.
JOHN MULLER [was] born on March 25, 1726, in Pennsylvania. His
parents, who moved there from Germany, were Bergelbach from Nashau. In 1746
he married the surviving widow, MAR. MAGDALENA, m.n. FABER, with whom he
had 13 children and in the beginning they lived on the Nurriver [New
River?]. In 1755 the Indian War drew him together with other families who
had to flee to Town Fork in Carolina, and from there he took refuge in
Bethabara, where he was awakened [converted] through the testimony of the
Brethren [Moravian Ministers] about Jesus' redeeming death, and soon after
that he moved with his family to the South Fork, not far from Muddy Creek.
When the Society in Friedberg was organized in 1770, he became a member of
that, attended the services faithfully, and in spite of several changes, he
remained with it to the end. On Feb. 9, 1780, he went to bed with a chest
illness, and on the 14th of that month he passed away in the 54th year of
his age. His tabernacle [body] was buried on the 16th after an address by
Bro. Beck";

!NOTES:Her name was "Maria Magdalena", which was anglicized to "Mary" later in life.;


!NOTES:Her B/D is given in the Miller book as 14 Jun 1735. Presumably this date comes from the Moravian records, but I haven't yet seen an actual record giving that date for her. It may be in her obituary, if there was one for her when she died in 1813. ** Perhaps someone has that record they can share with me?;


!CENSUS:1790 Rowan Co., NC p. 328

" males over 16 (bef 1774) = 2. Joseph Miller (1773) son
1 male under 16 (1774/1790) = Jonathan Miller (1776) son
1 female (before 1790) = Mary Faber Miller (1735)

!CENSUS:1810 x
x Two Mary Millers listed in Rowan, but both too young to be same person. Our Mary was probably living with one of her children. Moravian records show that in 1805 she was living with her son Jonathan in Ashe Co., NC. Since she is buried in Friedburg, she probably returned home at some point after 1805,or perhaps was returned for burial.;
