  • Notes 
    • James Hord -mr- Mary Miller (aka Molly Miller), daughter of Simon Miller Sr., about 1755
      ===
      Captain Simon Miller was "gentleman Justice" of Essex County 1747-50 (Will Book 8, pp. 30, 223, 303, 313, 423). He was candidate for Burgess from Essex County 1741 (Deed Book, 1738-42, Page 312). Margaret Miller was daughter of John Miller, of Essex County, whose will was proved in Essex County, December 20, 1743. He mentions her in his will as "daughter Margaret Howard," evidently an error in spelling. John Miller was son of Captain Simon Miller and is mentioned in the latter's will proved in Old Rappahannock County, May 2, 1684.
