The Peter Miller family made the voyage from Europe to America when young Peter was just a small boy. His mother died en route and was buried at sea. His father died shortly after arrival in America, leaving Peter with only the clothes he was wearing. They came on a sailboat. My Aunt Jessie Miller Blaine said that it was “The Good Ship Hope.” Records show that Peter and Mary Miller could have been on one of three shipw which arrived from 1765 to 1767.
