About Lydia Miller

Lydia Coombs was born in 1609 in England. According to conflicting evidence, she married John (Reverend) Miller in 1630 in Bishops Stortford, England. Lydia died on 7 August 1658 at Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts. Her parents were John Combs and Sarah Godberlson.

Genealogists appear to have confused several Lydias. Another Lydia, Lydia Coombs, daughter of Francis Coombs and Mary Barker, married another John Miller, NOT Rev. John Miller.
