McMillin in Augusta/Botetourt Counties (Rockbridge), Virgini

Postby palmieri509 » Mon Sep 29, 2014 7:09 pm


I'm having problems getting past Daniel McMillin born abt 1768 in Augusta/Botetourt counties, which later became Rockbridge County (1977) Virginia. Daniel married Eleanor Ferguson on 5 or 6 Aug 1795. Daniel died in 28 Mar 1836 in Fountain Co Indiana.

Daniel and Family moved to "Shawnee township from Darke county Ohio, about 1830. He was a prominent citizen and built the first mill of any consequence on the Shawnee. The first bore the name of its original proprietor, and for many years recently has been know as the (Nave Mill), but its name has still more recently been changed to Wheatland. Mr. McMillin was one of the commissioners of Fountain county in his time." [Extracted from a township article - Beckwith, H.W. Fountain County, Indiana History (Shawnee Township) Chicago: HH Hill, pg. 371.]

I know little else about Daniel and Eleanor, and hitting a block as to parents and siblings. I know others have had the same problem as I have, so any additional information or hints would indeed be very welcome!

My e-mail is:

Thank you!
(birth name McMillin)
