Fredrick may also have been a widower when he married Mary Haden as there is a marriage of Fredrick Miller to Margaret Brown, 10 May 1779. John Brown, bondsman. Jo. Brevard, wit.

Mary "Polly" HADEN and Fredric MILLER were married on 15 December 1801.1 Fredric MILLER was born (date unknown).

Rowan Co Will Book D, p.203. Will of Wendle Miller. 17 Nov 1804. Probate 1805. Named a son Frederick. Most children seemed to be of age. His wife was Christina.

There are also three very different marriage bonds in Rowan Co for a Frederick Miller. It's obvious there was more than one. Frederick married Mary Haden in 1801. Then there was a Frederick Miller to Salley Black, on 30 Oct 1819. John Black was bondsman; R. Powell, witness. Since daughter Polly Miller is mentioned in the will of her father in 1820, she was still living when this later marriage occurred.

Fredrick may also have been an older widower when he married Mary Haden as there is a marriage of Fredrick Miller to Margaret Brown, 10 May 1779. John Brown, bondsman. Jo. Brevard, wit.


The 1800 Census for Rowan has three. In fact, there are thirty-three Miller households in the county.
All three Fredericks are in Salisbury. One was age 26-45 and had 3 males under 10, 2 males 10-16, 2 females under 10, 1 female 10-16 and 1 female age 26-45. 1 slave
Frederick Miller, Esq. was over 45. He had 2 males under 10, 1 female under 10, and a female age 16-26, possibly a much younger wife. 11 slaves.
The third Frederick was a household of two males - one 16-26 and one 26-45. They were only two households from John and Jacob Miller, both of whom were 26-45 with families. These would appear to perhaps be the four sons of George above. This Frederick appears to be the only single man to marry Mary Haden in 1801.

In 1810, two Frederick Millers were in Rowan Co. One had three males under 10 and was age 26-45. He had one female under 10 and one over 45.
The second Frederick had 1 male under 10, 1 age 10-16, and himself over age 45. He had
a female also over 45.
Neither of the older women in these households could by Mary - either they have moved or she was counted as the wrong age, It seems unlikely she was deceased since her father named her in his will in 1820.
In 1810, there were also two heads of household named Mary Miller. One had a single male under 10, 2 females under 10, and 1 female 10-16, and herself age 26-45.
Another Mary Miller was a few households from Joseph Haden. Strangely her household was exactly the same, although the neighbors were not.
There had been another Mary Miller in Rowan in 1800 - but she lived alone and was over age 45 in 1800.

In 1820, there were again three Frederick Millers in Rowan Co.
Battalion 1 or Salisbury Side. [alpha] Frederick Miller: 2m under 10, 1m 26-45, 2 females under 10, and 1 female 16-26.
Battalion 2 & 4, Lexington Side. [2 households from Joseph Haden's widow - these had not been alphabetized] This Frederick had 1m 10-16, 1m age 16-26, and 1m over 45, 2f under 10, 1f age 26-45.
Battalion 3 or Forks of the Yadkin. [alpha] Frederick Miller, 1m age 16-26 and 1f age 16-26.
There was no Mary Miller has head of household in 1820.
