     Margaret Miller was born circa 1694 at co. Ballynacree, Ireland.1 She married Andrew Moore on 27 February 1715 at Dunclady, co. Antrim, Ireland; Kath.Henderson H.1,2
Margaret Miller died in 1722/23 at co. Ballynacree, Ireland; Borth of Southern Lancaster Co. says d. in Antrim, co. Antrim.1,2
     Margaret Miller from Find A Grave website:
Birth:      1695, Ireland
Death:      1725
Lancaster County
Pennsylvania, USA

It is believed that Margaret Henderson Moore did not die in this country. There
are no records showing that she came here with her husband and four children.
It is most likely that she died shortly after giving birth to her fourth child,
Thomas in 1922 in Antrim, Ireland. Give that information, her burial location
is unknown, rather than at Sadsbury Friends Burial Ground.

His estate was probated on 2 August 1715 at Chester Co., Pennsylvania, USA; per Potts [18995:246]: "He left a will ...proven 12 mo. 8, 1714-15."4
     Reference: (an unknown value.)6

John III Miller Futhey & Cope (pp. 659-660): "John Miller, a settler at what is now Avondale, may have been a brother of Gayen Miller, of Kennet. The time of his arrival appears to have been in 1709, and his death occurred in 1714. His mill was the first in that region, and it is said that settlers in Lancaster County patronized it. The children of John and Mary Miller were James, b. 1st mo., 1693, near Charlemont, county Armagh, Ireland, m. 3, 24, 1722, to Ann Cane ; Mary, m. to Joseph Hutton ; William, b. 2d mo., 1698, in the county Tyrone, Ireland, m. Ann Emlen, of Philadelphia; Joseph, m. to Ann Gilpin ; Martha, m. to John Jordan and Nathaniel Houlton ; Sarah, m. 5, 25, 1723, to Nehemiah Hutton; Elizabeth, m. 8, 22, 1729, to William Chambers ; Susanna, m. 2, 18, 1734, to Joseph Jackson; Elinor, m. 4, 19, 1729, to Richard Chambers." He was per Potts [18995:246]: "He was an active Friend and meetings were held at his house before the erection of New Garden Meeting House in 1713."3
John III Miller was mentioned in a land transaction circa 1709 at Chester Co., Pennsylvania, USA,
Memo: per Potts [18995:246]: "He purchased 1013 acres of land, which extended from the Middle line of New Garden in to Londongrove and from Touyghkenamon Hill almost to the old New Garden Meeting House. He built a mill on White Clay Creek, which did the grining for many miles around, even as far as Lancaster, it is said."

Map from Find a Grave memorial: ""ahamptondowd" originally shared this to Dowd-Hampton Tree. This is a 1700-1730 map of all the property owners and their lots in Chester County. The lots with red stars are owned by Quaker ancestors of Arlis Dowd's maternal grandfather, Oscar Carter. The lots with blue stars are owned by relatives of her Quaker ancestors. A glance at this map will illustrate how interconnected those early Quaker communities were. This picture corresponds with the list of property owners in the story titled "Chester County Property Owners 1700-1730. Added by: L Evans 8/06/2015."4,5

John III Miller immigrated circa 1709 to Chester Co., Pennsylvania, USA.4

John III Miller left a will on 17 October 1714 at Chester Co., Pennsylvania, USA; per Potts [18995:246]: "He left a will dated 8 mo. 17, 1714...in which he mentions his wife and children - his daughters Martha Sarah, Elizabeth, Susannah and Elinor, being then under 16 years of age. Gayen Miller was a witness to the will." Potts says "See Will Book A 1, page 10, Chester County records."
