Another Breakthrough: Miller and Hostetler

A fellow researcher has been diligently researching our common Miller and Hostetler ancestral lines. She ordered a pair of wills from Fayette Co., PA for the Hostetlers - Nicholas and Jacob. Nicholas named daughter Margaret Miller. In the estate papers of Nicholas, the son of the above mentioned Nicholas, his sisters and their children were named. For Margaret, daughter Catherine Clark, wife of Isaac.

So, we have Nicholas Sr., Margaret, and Catherine. Add the will of Catherine's husband Isaac which names daughter Nancy Faucett, and we have a nice lineage put together that a few years ago was only a couple of generations deep.

I am anxiously  awaiting copies of the documents!
