About Elisabeth Rainsberger (Miller)

Have wondered if she might have been the daughter of a Capt Miller, who was one of the officers of John Rainsberger during the Revolutionary War. Is there anyone out there that happens to know what this Capt Miller's first name may have been and if his family history has been done??

Or if Capt Miller had a daughter that married in Frederick MD to a John/Johann Remsberger or Rainsberger?? I found a baptism for Elisabeth Miller, but it did not give her parents names and her sponsor was John Riemensperger/Reimensperger, her soon to be husband.

Feel certain that she is buried at Osage Lutheran Cemetery in Jefferson Co. Ohio. This church is one of the earliest Lutheran Churches in Ohio and was served by Rev Stough. He was the Lutheran/Evangelical Reformed circuit rider pioneering into Ohio, western PA, Md and Virginia. He baptised Jacob Rainsberger and left the record at Jacob's Lutheran Church near Redstone Settlement, PA
I have been to this cemetery, but found no stone for her. If there had been one it is gone now.
