Transcription of the readable portions of this record by Linda Sparks Starr October 2005 is true to the original except for highlighting and paragraphing. The record, which names all eight children of Christley Miller died in 1815, was deposited in the Breckinridge County, Kentucky Archives by Willa Mac Coulter who failed to note the book and page number. She over-wrote some important words there were too faint to read or were cut off the bottom line when copying the original.
