Aaron's grandfather was JOHN MILLS, b. about 1688; died 1760 in Rowan County NC. (His death is noted in the monthly meeting records of New Garden MM, Guilford Co., NC.) His will which was probated there, made specific requests to his children Thomas, John Jr., Hur, Henry, & Mary. He was a Prince George County Maryland farmer and is described as John Mills of "Manoquisy near ye River Potamac" on his son Thomas' marriage certificate. Migrated to VA (what is now Berkeley County) then on to NC. he probably married twice and both wives were possibly named Rebecca. No surnames for either. Good Luck on your search! Hannah Michal

Aaron's birth was recorded as 12-22-1749. The 12th month is February prior to 1752 (NOT DECEMBER), due to the calendar change we use today. Many times his birth month is listed as December, because the researcher's are unaware of the 1752 calendar change.
