Mrs. Emelia 'Milly' Fisher Sossaman, was the widow of Cabarrus Co., N.C., War of 1812, militia Pvt. John Sossaman, by whom, if memory serves (See Sossaman family book published by Sossaman Farmily Assn. of Calif.) she had four children? Widowed, she became the second wife of John "Henry" Miller, by whom she had four sons: Frederick Haro Miller to Texas (near Waco?), Samuel D. Miller fate unknown, Alexander Monroe "Sandy" Miller to Rowan Co., N.C., thence Illinois (Union Co.?); and my John Cyrus Miller (1811-1893) who wed Sophia Propst and removed to Zeb/Franklin, Rowan Co., N.C. Her parents were Rev. War (DAR Patriot) Capt. Frederick Fisher, Jr., and first wife Rosana. Most DAR's descend second wife Ann McBride, as did U.S. Senator, Col. Charles Fisher, CSA. Capt. Fisher's parents, Frederick and Sybila Fisher, Sr., died Cabarrus Co., N.C. Henry Miller ran the Sossaman-Miller-Foil mill on Dutch Buffalo Creek, Cabarrus Co., until his Sossaman step-children came of age. It's foundation and three mill stones can be seen on the right bank, looking downstream, from the bridge below the Mt. Pleasant water dam. Originally a grist mill, it became a wool "fullering?) mill, and with the circa 1920's advent of electricity, it's equipment was removed to Mt. Pleasant where it still operates (forgot name) with electric motors. About 40 tears ago, I espied written in pencil, on a wooden grain hopper (now in the owner's barn), the name of the first pilot to ever fly over Cabarrus County. Circa 1805, my ancestor Thomas Malone, Sr. (d Feb 17, 1850, age 78), was U.S. Land Office agent, asst. Indian factory agent, and magistrate, Ft. St. Stephens, Ala., where John Sossaman (from N.C.?) was a silversmith. As Malome's wife was Mrs. Mary S. Malone (d Jan 14, 1838, age 49), could she be John's widow or daughter? Jim -- Southport, N.C.
