Searching for information about Andrew Miller; Elizabeth Miller and Adam McGowan; and the Miller's who went to Columbiana County, Ohio

Columbiana County, Ohio
It is always wonderful to hear from one of our great followers. Below is a letter from Diane Tichenor, and I'm hoping this request gets a wide read on the internet and lots of responses below. 

From Diane: 

[Am] doing a lot of work on my branch - the Elizabeth Miller/ Adam McGowan family.

I looked at your blog again this morning after I had a revelation. It has puzzled me for years why my  Elizabeth and Adam's oldest child, born 1792 in Maryland (1850 - 1880 census records), was quoted in a newspaper article saying she was born in "Delaware County, Maryland", which of course does not exist.   What dawned on me is that she probably told the reporter that she was born near the border of Delaware, which was probably Cecil County.

I would appreciate any evidence found about Andrew [Miller].  As Elizabeth and Adam followed William Miller and Rebecca Bradford Miller to Fayette County, I am wondering if Andrew had died by then, or ???

I would also appreciate being put in touch with any of the William Miller branch who descend from the brothers who went to Ohio.    I have recently copied all of the tax records for Columbiana Co, 1816 - 1838 for Abraham and Samuel Miller and Adam McGowan.   Fun to see how many horses and cows they all had.  I am also very interested in James Miller, who got married in Poland, Ohio, but apparently went back to PA at some point.

Thanks again for writing, Diane, and best of luck on your research! I'll be sending along what I can, especially about Samuel Miller, my ancestor who went to Columbiana County - Donna
