Thanks for that bit of info on John Deremiah. I did not know that he witnessed a will in 1805. I am wondering if John Deremiah was a neighbor of Christopher Miller, which is why he witnessed the will. The name Christopher Miller is not familiar to me and I have not seen any other connection to the Miller surname. Christopher Miller b. 1729 would be a generation older than John Deremiah who was born c. 1750.
Thanks again. I will keep this Christopher Miller in mind.
