West Nottingham Cemetery is a Presbyterian graveyard in Cecil County, Maryland. This is a transcript of headstones from that old cemetery, which is located in Colora, a small town west of Elkton. Hopefully future research will reveal whether or not this Samuel and Mary Miller are related to our Miller's.

However, it is certain that Rebecca Bradford Miller's father, Samuel Bradford, was of Scotch-Irish background, and thus descended from a people with strong Presbyterian roots.

Whether or not Rebecca's husband, William Miller, descended from such roots remains to be seen.

It is also noted that the birth year of this Samuel Miller (1735) is close to the birth year of our William Miller (1732).
