Surnames: Holmes, Miller
I was wondering if anyone had the parents of Jonathan Miller, who married Sarah Holmes (b. ab.1672, Stamford, CT.), d/o John Holmes and Rachel Waterbury, in about 1691 in Bedford, Westchester Co., NY. Sarah was born in Fairfield County. I think Jonathan is tied in somehow with my Abraham Miller, Sr., s/o James Miller, of Westchester, but I do not know how.
