Continuing story of 4th Great Grandfather.

Neighbors in Morrison's Cove were beginning to look to the West for cheaper land. This time it was in eastern Ohio. Around the year 1812, Abraham Miller and his son Abe Jr. rode their horses over the mountains and visited Stark Co. - they liked what they saw. Even at the age of 63, Abe was in prime condition and the urge to migrate was still in his mind. It was the lure of the land. Abe and his son felled some trees on a section they liked with the thought that these would hurry the building on a section they liked with the thought that these would hurry the building of a cabin one day when they came back to stay, They had some talking to do to convince Sevilla and the girls.
