They lived early in their married life in Sycamore Township, Hamilton County, Ohio, northeast of Cincinnati.

Deed Book D-1, p 592. In the Adams Township map of 1875 (see image on right) this land was the property of their son, F1 Henry B. Miller.

They were members of the Upper Stillwater German Baptist Brethren Church, later renamed Harris Creek Church of the Brethren. The meeting house was built in 1868 on the east side of State Route 721 in Newberry Township, Miami County, Ohio. They are buried on the west side of the state route in Old Harris Creek Cemetery, in Adams Township which was supplemented in 1886 by the new Harris Creek Cemetery, located a short distance south of the church, and is actually located in Newberry Township, Miami County.

Between 1854 and 1871, the heirs signed their individual share of the parental property over to their eldest brother Henry who in turn sold the farm to Jonas C. and Catherine (Christian) Katherman in two transactions in 1897 and 1899.
