Notes for Samuel Mills:
Verbal family history as Russell Mills told his son Rod Mills:

Three brothers came from Ireland and landed in New England area. About the time the Revolutionary War started, the families split. One family went to the state of New York, one went to Virginia and the other, our line went to Canada. This family was loyal to King George. I have not found this link.

In the 1851 census, the Daniel Mills family, had a Jane living with them that was 87 and born in the United States. Jane might be a grandmother of Daniel (born about 1812). Daniel and his wife Mary (born about 1812) had two children, Sarah Jane (born about 1839) and John (born about 1842). I don't know if Jane is related to Daniel or Samuel.

  Notes for George W Rowe:
George W. Row is a native of Holmes County, Ohio, born Nov. 14, 1831, a son of Jacob Row, grandson of George Row and great-grandson of Fredrick Row, who was a soldier in the war of the Revolution. Jacob Row was born in Union County, Pa., Jan. 1, 1802, and when fifteen years of age went with his parents to Holmes County, Ohio, where he grew to manhood and married Magdalene Guttery, a native of Harrison County, Ohio, daughter of Samuel Guttery, who came from Londonderry, Ireland in an early day. In 1847 they moved to DeKalb County IN, and entered forty acres of Government land and bought forty acres, which he cleared and improved. He died Aug. 17, 1873, and the mother is now living in Michigan in the seventy-third year of her age. They had a family of eleven children, but five of whom are now living. George W. Row was fifteen years of age when his parents moved to DeKalb County, and his youth was spent in assisting his father to clear and improve his farm. When twenty years of age he learned the shoemaker's trade, at which he has worked at intervals since, in connection with farming and working at the carpenter's trade. He saved his earning and bought forty acres of wild land which he improved, and in 1866 sold it and bought the farm where he now lives, which contains nearly forty-seven acres of valuable land. When he settled on his farm it was heavily timbered with the exception of eighteen acres, and that was only partially improved. He has been an energetic, economical man and now has a pleasant home. He has taken an interest in all the public affairs of the township, and has held the office of Constable four years, and Magistrate twelve years. In politics he is a member of the Greenback party. He was married Jan. 1, 1860 to Harriet F. Shook, a native of Crawford County, Ohio, daughter of Samuel and Ann (Shong) Shook. To them have been born four children; Albert E., Charles A., Emma Ann, and Bertha May. Mrs Row is a member of the German Reform Church.
