  • Notes 
    • He Immigrated to the British Colonies from Germany, in June 1743 "last from Rotterdam, Holland" on the ship "Phoenix", arriving in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on 30 Sep 1743. He took his oath of allegiance to the King of England October 7, 1743. He is recorded as being 20 years of age when arriving in the New World.

      We believe the name change of Ohler to Eller happened shortly after his arrival.

      He purchased land in Pipes Creek, Frederick County,Maryland on April 14, 1773.

      He was affiliated with the German Dunkards (Baptist) religion.

      His estate was settled by the executors, Henry Eller, his brother, and Michael Gerber on October 26,1779. His estate was worth 956 pounds, 15 shillings and 5 pence which was a great sum in those days. [1]
