Glenn LACY Woollen of Winston-Salem was a kinsman. My Millers were early Germans from Cabarrus and Rowan Cos., N.C. My John Cyrus Miller's (1811-1893) brother, Frederick Haro Miller, removed to the Republic of Texas. Our "Haro" is not the more frequent Spanish, but less common Prussian/German family. I'm interested in the mid-1700's Batts family connection to my James family near Wilmington, N.C.
All the surnames I am researching are listed on my page, I was born in Texas, raised in Beaumont and Houston, and now live near Spring. I noticed we have ancestors from many of the same states but it would depend on the counties. So many people came to Texas from the southern states.
