Looking for descendants of Joseph Mills who came to Union Co., Ky about 1823 from Maryland. Born in 1762, son of Justinian Mills and Mary Dant. Died in Union Co in 1853. Joseph had several sons, LEWIS, TIMOTHY B., JOSEPH, JUSTINIAN,and IGNATIUS. One daughter Mary Ann, who married Lewis Greenwell. I am descendant of Lewis Mills. Would like info about other descendants.
I am a descendant of Joseph Mills [1762-1853] son of Justinian Mills and Mary Ann Dant. It is believed that Joseph Mills Sr's first wife was Molly Abell and his second wife was Eleanor Mattingly.
Joseph Mills, Jr was born abt 1802 Maryland [probably St. Mary's Co.]. He died after the 1870 Census, probably in Union Co., KY. He married Mary Ann Smith 18 Apr 1836 Union Co., KY.
Joseph and Mary Ann's children:
Samuel B Mills; Margot Eleanor "Harriet" Schneider; John Calistus Mills; Mary Catherine Drury; Julia Ann Stemper; Charles Joseph Mills; Susan Matilda Mills; Edith Victoria Drury; Sarah Angelia Brandt; James Joseph Mills [my ancestor]; Martha Louiza Mills; Susan Anna Vowels; Camilla Rose Brandt; and Louis Ignatius Mills.
Will gladly exchange information!
I hope that I have made a connection. I have some of the same names in my family tree that you have listed in your query. Susan Ellen Greenwell (2/26/1860 IN / KY) married James (or Jacob ?) Joseph Mills in Martin Co., IN on 1/14/1877. They moved back to Union Co., KY sometime before 1888 because I have Camilla Rose Mills baptised in St. Agnes Church, Uniontown, Union Co., KY in April 1888. Also, I have Martha (Weekley) Greenwell, mother of Susan Ellen (Greenwell) Mills, living with Camilla in the 1900 KY census. I welcome and new info or any corrections that you might have and I am eager to hear from you. Thanks.
James & Eliza Mills Greenwell
I have a picture of James and Eliza at clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/greenwellvirtual reunion. I think thats the URL(?) Write me if you have problems. Elizabeth was called Eliza. She and James were 1st cousins. Union Co. folks. Just drop into the club and read the postings. How are you kin to James & Eliza? I'm descended from William Henry, brother to James and also to Eliza several different ways.
I am looking for information on James Marcellus Greenwell and Elizabeth Ann Mills. James Marcellus Greenwell was born in Union County, Kentucky in August of 1834 and was Chistened September 17, 1834 at St. Vincent, Union County, Kentucky. I have no information on Elizabeth Ann Mills other than she was Married to James Marcellus Greenwell. James Marcellus Greenwell's parents were Lewis Greenwell born June 20, 1785 in St. Mary's, Maryland; died April 11, 1843 in Union County, Kentucky; he married Mary Ann Mills on May 21, 1817. Mary Ann Mills was born in 1801 in St. Mary's, Maryland and died in 1882 in Union County, Kentucky. If anyone has any information on these families I would love to hear from you.
My family is also descended from Lewis Mills. I am just starting my family search, but it sounds like the same family. I found the following through the LDS IGI index. Lewis married Mary Simmons Abell 2 Jan 1812 in St. Mary's Co., Maryland. I have found four of their children; Matilda, b. abt.1818 St. Mary's, Md; Anne Ellen b. 4 Feb 1821 Waverly, Union Co., KY;Joseph Abell b. 24 Apr 1824; Elizabeth b. abt 1825 waverly, Union Co. KY.
My ancestor, Joseph Abell married Louisa Deaubrey Willett 15 Nov 1847 Shawneetown, Glltn, IL. Interestingly, Louisa DeAubrey's mother's name was Mary Dant.
Louisa and Joseph A. had 10 children, all born in Union Co. KY; Samuel Lewis, Martha Ellen, James William, Robert O., Joseph Boliver, Abel Dante, Henry Clay, Mary Gip, Golena Isabel Dant, Ruhama Ursula.
Joseph Boliver Mills wed Mary Shuttlesworth. They were parents to my grandfather William Joseph Mills b. 2 Jun 1893 Morganfield, Union Co.,Ky. I would love to know what information you have.
Wow! It's great to hear from all these descendants of Lewis and Mary Mills. I haven't found too many of them up to now. I have quite a bit of info on the Mills family, for whoever is interested. Lewis and Mary had at least 8 children. I'm including a list of them here. I have more info on some of these children, particularly Robert, my ancestor and Joseph and Louisa. I have recentley done a bit of research on the family of Thomas James Mills and Mary Wheatley, and have found some info on their children. In fact, I recently contacted a person who is descended from their son William, who married Susan Cruz, and sent some info, but haven't had any response yet. If I can help more, let me know. Sometimes these charts are hard to read on this forum, so let me know if it is unclear.

I was recently in Union Co and did some research on the descendants of Thomas James and Mary Jane Wheatley. I'd like to know more as I've been curious about what happened to their descendants. I can send you what I have, which is mostly marriage records and some census data. I think Thomas James and his brother Robert, my ancestor, were quite close, they seemed to have bought some land together, and were near the same age. If you don't have data on the ancestors of Robert and Thomas James, back to Peter Mills, let me know. This is what I have on the family of Thomas James.
