Thank you, Donna, for the Burgert account. This does indeed offer scholarly
support that Michael Miller was baptized reformed in 1692. I wonder if he
was baptized as an infant, or somewhat later. If as an infant, his mother
Irene Charitas must have died shortly after thereafter since his father
remarried and then he died in 1695. The records indicate that all of
Michaels siblings died either at birth or as babies. Does Burgert untangle
Even if Michael Miller was baptized Reformed in 1692, it is possible that
his 1714 marriage to Susanna Agnes Berchtol brought him into the Anabaptist
culture. Do we know if his many children were baptized in Germany before
coming over in 1727 on the Ship Adventure? If they were not baptized as
infants, they may have been brought up in some Anabaptist faith. Does
Burgert go into his family?
Again, thank you, Donna, for the Burgert reference!
