      Her maiden name not completely verified; however 1688 will of WILLIAM ACRE indicates Katherine's husband RANDOLPH MILLER as his "brother & executor". William Acre's two daughters were Katherine "Loaned to Mrs. Anne Brown" and Elizabeth "loaned to Walter Welch"; this suggests that they were young girls bound out for service with other families. My guess is that WILLIAM ACRE was brother to Katherine who married RANDOLPH MILLER.
