Birth: Feb. 25, 1747
Chester County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: 1830
Allegheny County
Pennsylvania, USA

Alexander was the son of Oliver and Mary "Tidball" Miller. He had fourteen siblings, 9 lived: Sarah, Thomas, John, Elizabeth, William, Jane, Oliver, James and Mary.

============================

The section below is directly from the Western Pennsylvania Genealogical Society Quarterly, Volume 21, Number 1, Summer 1994. Title: It All Began with a Still: The Story of Oliver Miller and Mary (Tidball) Miller

Alexander was born 25 Feb. 1747 in W. Nottingham Twp., Chester Co. PA. He married before 1782 Jean [-?-]. On 6 Jan. 1786 Alexander had surveyed in what is now Bethel Twp., Allegheny Co., 337 acres & 32 perches of land in pursuance of a Virginia certificate. On 22 Feb. 1799 he was granted a PA patent on this land. He named it Millmount. In the 1790 Federal Census for the portion of Allegheny Co. taken from Washington Co. Alexander Millar was head of a household consisting of one male 16 or over (i.e., Alexander), two males under 16 (i.e., Oliver & Alexander, Jr.) and seven females (i.e., his wife Jean & his 6 daughters). On 17 Aug. 1821 Alexander Miller of St. Clair Twp. Sold 100 acres of Millmount to his youngest child Thomas for $1.00. On 4 Mar. 1824 Alexander wrote his will. It was probated 23 Mar. 1831. In his will he cited his sons Alexander & Thomas and his daughters Mary Dick, Sarah Jewell, Agness Miller, Jane Jewell, Rachel Tidball & Ruth Miller. Apparently his wife, Jean, had predeceased him. And, as was stated near the beginning of this article, his son Oliver also predeceased him.
