Thank you, Sandra. This is amazing. All these great and great-great aunts and uncles,and cousins, many sharing the same first names as my known family. I notice when Alexander Corbett Miller Jr. got married, it was in a Catholic church, and my family are all Presbyterian, wonder if that caused the Miller mini-schism? Again, your work is much appreciated. I can't wait to share it with my family members who also love genealogy. The family is huge. The Alex Corbet Miller who was born in 1856 in Wick had 8 children, one of them, my grandfather William Thomas Millar, had 11 children, one of which was my father, so I grew up with a hoard of cousins. Also, interestingly, my dad's brothers all had daughters so my two brothers were the only men to 'carry on the Millar name', and they had daughters, too! But it turns out, with Alex's half-brother Dan, the male line actually continued (although the spelling is now Miller.) That little 'e' to 'a' change in the name spelling caused me and my cousins a lot of grief growing up - all sorts of weird pronunciations, not to mention screwed up job applications, pay checks, email addresses and so forth. Many thanks for the information!

Thank you very much, Sandra. I have shared what I have learned so far with my sibs and cousins and everybody is pretty amazed at our 'lost' family (or maybe they weren't lost, we were!)  :)

There is such a vast Miller family around Wick, Caithness

My fathers family also is from there.

My father Anthony Miller, born 1940's in London
His father Edwin Miller (twin of George), born 1908 in Wales
His father John Leslie Miller, born 1878 in Edinburgh
His father John Miller, born 1839 in Wick
His father Alexander Miller born 1807 in Wick
His father Peter Miller born in Wick (farmer I think)

Feel free to reach out and connect. I live here in London, UK

Hi Alex, welcome to Rootschat...

It's a good idea to list the wives names/maiden names too as anyone doing a google search of the name will be directed here which can help you connect with more kin.
