( Michael son of Thomas is too young for this marriage )
Numerous trees claim this Michael is son of Christian Miller without sources, but would be a good guess to descend from the documented settler along Yadkin - ). He married Eleanor Turner and moved to Sangamon Co, IL. However known sons of Jacob do not include a Thomas or Michael.
