  • Notes 
    • If all facts were known they might show that George Michael Eller was married three times and that his first son Peter was a child by his first wife (possibly named Salome) and all others by his second,

      Peter was a grown man with a wife and child as early as the late seventeen sixties. His brother, Leonard, was born 20 March 1751. Peter Eller was called "my eldest son" in the George Michael Eller will and the latter*s children, Jacob, George, John, Eve, Catherine and Maria, called "my six youngest children," were given the residue of the estate in equal shares. The son, Peter, was given 97 pounds and the son, Leonard, and daughter, Elizabeth, were given 82 pounds apiece. All of this adds up to the fact that Peter, Leonard and Elizabeth were his eldest children and that Peter probably was some years older than the other two, and, maybe, their half-brother. [3]
