The Weaver family moved from Ohio into Indiana during the early 1840's, settling in Hector, Noble Township, Jay County, Indiana, by the 1850 census.

George Weaver died at the age of 82 on November 27, 1893, in Wayne, Jay County, Indiana.

Nancy (Miller) Weaver died a year later in Wayne on December 2, 1894. She was 81 years old.

David John MILLER6 (1817-1892)

David John MILLER 11HBG3. David John Miller6 was born on December 2, 1817, in Ohio, likely in Montgomery County, and moved to Iowa around 1840, soon after Iowa became a territory in 1838. He married Sarah Ann Kester7 about 1840 in Cedar County, Iowa, and then began their family of as many as six children in Solon, Johnson County, Iowa:

11HBG36. Sarah Ellen Miller 21 Mar 1861 6 Nov 1932 (71)
"History of Johnson County"

"Rudolph Startzer, farmer, post-office, Ely, Linn county; was born in Germany, March 7, 1823, and in 1839 emigrated to America and settled in section 5, Big Grove township in 1841. He followed hunting for a number of years, being one of the most successful hunters in the country; he and his brother-in-law, David Miller, in one fall killing sixty-three wolves..."

• David's half-sisters, Mary Ann and Sarah Ann Fackler, successively went on to marry Rudolph Startzer

Sarah Ann (KESTER) MILLER The Millers started their family one county over to the west at Side Hill, Cedar Township (Township 81 North, Range 5 West), in the northeast corner of Johnson County, Iowa Territory.[Cen 1840] Their real estate value was appraised in 1860 at $1,500, and personal property at $250.[Cen 1860]

Except for eldest daughter Finetta, whose family had already set firm roots in Iowa, the rest of the Miller family joined a wagon train bound for California about 1870. As noted in a family narrative from 1935, the wagon train was attacked by Indians and son John Valentine had a "close call" when an arrow ripped through the crown of his hat.

Andrews-Kester-Miller Migration
This migration to California seems to follow that of both the Kesters and the Andrews. Sarah's younger brother James Layson Kester resettled in San Luis Obispo County in 1867 after several year's residency in Napa County. Her next younger brother John Jr. also settled in San Luis Obispo County by 1871 after an apparent stay in Napa as well. Additionally, David and Sarah's elder son Isaac's in-laws, the Andrews, also settled in San Luis Obispo County as early as 1868. Furthermore, yet another one of Sarah's brother, William Kester, was married to Isaac's wife's aunt, Harriet Andrews which solidified the alliances between the three families.

Upon arrival in California the Miller family first settled in either San Luis Obispo or Santa Barbara County.

David and Sarah relocated to Oregon, possibly as early as 1871. They likely settled in Josephine County by 1879 when youngest daughter Sarah Ellen married in Josephine County, but may have migrated as early as 1871 when their middle daughter, Maggie, married in Jackson County to the east of Josephine County. The Millers settled in Slate Creek Precinct, probably up Redwood Highway (Highway 199) in the hills southwest of Grants Pass on the edge of what became Siskiyou National Forest, where daughters Mary Jane, Sarah Ellen, and their husbands had also settled by 1880.[Cen 1880]

Ida May Wilde/Wildy/Wildey, 1880
David and Sarah are enumerated with a 10-year old "servant," Ida Wildy from Idaho. Despite finding an "Ida May Wilde" in the next county to the east in Applegate, Jackson County, Oregon, in the same census, these two may be the same. So far there is no explanation for how it came to be that Ida was living with the Millers.[Cen 1880]

David John Miller died in 1892 in Table Rock, near Sam's Valley along the Rogue River in Jackson County, Oregon, just north of Medford. He was 74 years old.

Sometime after David's death, Sarah moved to back to San Luis Obispo. There she was hospitalized at the San Luis Obispo County Hospital by 1900.[Cen 1900]

Sarah Ann (Kester) Miller died on June 29, 1902, in San Luis Obispo, San Luis Obispo County, California where some of her grandchildren lived. She was 83 years old. She is buried in San Luis Obispo.

Mary Magdalena MILLER (1820-1912)

11HBG4. Mary Magdalena Miller was born on February 27, 1820,[Grave] in Montgomery County, Ohio. She married her first cousin, Abraham Miller on November 3, 1833, likely in Elkhart County, Indiana, where her mother had moved by 1833. Mary was only 13 years old at the time and Abraham was 23 years old. They had at least five children. Children Martin,[Cen 1860,1870] Elizabeth, and Emanuel were declared as "idiots."[Cen 1870]

Polk Township Millers
Mary and Abraham's paternal uncle, Abraham Miller (1794-1855), also migrated to Polk Township, as did a Samuel R. Miller, (~1812-1880) who is of unknown relationship.

The Millers moved from Elkhart County southwest to Marshall County, Indiana, probably in the late 1840s.[Cen 1850] They likely settled first in Polk Township,[Cen 1850] then shifted slighly south to neighboring West Township,[Cen 1860] and then east to neighboring Center Township.[Cen 1870]

Abraham Miller died on either April 11 or 19, 1896, in Polk Township at the age of 85. He was buried at the Blissville Cemetery, across the road from the Blissville Church of the Brethren in Polk Township.[Grave]

Mary Magdalena Miller died 16 years later on May 21, 1912, at the age of 92. She is also buried at the Blissville Cemetery and was later joined by children Elizabeth and Manuel.[Grave]
