Redd Family Genealogy Forum
According to Harry Zook (Zug/Zuck/Zouck/Zook Genealogy, 1983, revised 2009) there was another sister, Catharine Zook, who married a John Miller,s/o Isaac Miller and Katherine Brandt. Harry says that his grouping of the 3 sisters in the family of Peter Zug was not proven to his satisfaction but is probably true. If his construction of the Peter Zug family is correct, it would seem possible that the Zook sisters married Miller brothers, David and John. That would make Isaac Miller the father of your David. Pretty shaky house of cards.
One other fact, possibly related: On the connected-patent map of Somerset Twp., Washington Co. the Patent of Nathaniel Redd is adjacent to the patent of James Miller. Might mean nothing, but it could be a brother, cousin or the father of David.
I have never been able place a Zook family in the same place as a Redd family in 1771, so that Nathaniel Redd could have married Barbara Zook. Harry Zook says that the father, Peter Zug, had land in Milford Twp, Bedford Co. (now Somerset Co)from 1774 to about 1790. He may have lived there as early as 1762 and was probably a Dunkard preacher, according to tradition. But, I have found no solid evidence of Peter Zook or a Redd family there in Milford Twp. Never looked for Millers there, so I don't know about that. If there are any land records that early, I suppose they would be in VA Colonial records. Or maybe even MD?
