H. Johnston. Adam Miller was a soldier in the War of 1812, and both he and wife died in this township, Mrs. Hunter was born on the farm previously mentioned, July 6, 1807, and has reared a family of twelve children, eleven of whom are living: Alexander and Adam, of Crawford County, Penn.; Margaret, deceased; Albert, of Crawford County; Isabel, wife of James Johnston, of Canada; Lydia, wife of John Amons, of Venango County, Penn.; Esther, wife of Lyman Jackson, of Tennessee; Amos, of Lawrence County; Jane, wife of John McMurray; Sarah, wife of Truman Hall, of Orangeville, Ohio; Alvin and Marilla.
