Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Ahnentafel Roulette!

I haven't participated in Saturday Night fun for a long time, but I decided to do so tonight.

My great-grandfather, James Monroe "Mon" Comstock, was born 23 Feb 1860, so he would be 151 years old.  Divided by 4 and rounded off that would be number 38 in my Ahnentafel.

Number 38 is William Miller, a third great grandfather and here are three facts about him.

William Miller was born 30 May 1781, in North Carolina.  The exact place and his parents are unknown to me.  He married Nancy Meek probably about 1808.  William and Nancy moved to Boone County, Indiana, about 1830, settling in the Eagle Creek coomunity as one of the first settlers. Birth places of their children indicate they probably lived somewhere else in Indiana as early as 1815 - and they quite likely spent a few years in Tennessee after leaving North Carolina.

There were at least ten children - the ninth of which was my 2nd great grandmother, Emma Elizabeth Miller, born 10 Jul 1825.

William and Nancy (Meek) Miller are buried in the Eagle Village Cemetery, Zionsville, Boone County.  William Miller died 25 Aug 1844, aged 63 years, 2 months, and 26 days.  Nancy died four years later.  Their graves, including pictures of the stones, can be found on FindAGrave.
