In 1727 the Miller-Stutzmans headed for American aboard the Adventurearriving on Oct 2, 1727 in Philadelphia, PA. The ship first sailedfrom Rotterdam, and then stopped off at Plymouth before heading toAmerica. The ship sailed with 53 Palatine male heads of household, whowith their families, made about one hundred and forty persons. Thefamilies included the Millers, Ullrichs, Stutzmans, Lehmans, Franz,Meyer and Fisher families, who created communities and marriagestogether over many generations.

Johann Jacob returned to the placeof his birth, Spiez, Switzerland, leaving Jacob and Christian boundout in Berks Co., Pennsylvania in the care of his "fellow Amish"passengers to pay for his voyage. There are a couple of referencesthat state that Johann returned to Switzerland to settle his fatherAbraham, Baron Von Stutzman's, estate -- although there are referencesto his father's name as Hans Jacob.

Johann Michael M‹LLER (MUELLER)1 was born about 1655 in Zollikofen,Bern Canton, Switzerland. He married Irene CHARITAS about 1684 and hadsix children, only one of whom survived to adulthood: † JohannNicholas MUELLER 5 Jun 1685 6 Jun 1685 (1 day) † Johann AbrahamMUELLER 9 Jun 1686 1686 (<7 mos.) † Samuel MUELLER 30 Apr 1687 30 Apr1687 (0) † Catherine Barbara MUELLER 7 Jun 1688 21 Jun 1691 (3) † EvaCatherine MUELLER 29 Apr 1691 29 Jun 1691 (2 mos.) 11. Johann MichaelMUELLER/MILLER 10 May 1692
As noted in research by Tom & Karleen MILLER (Johann Michael MillerFamily Tree), the M‹LLER (MUELLER) family likely moved fromSwitzerland following a peasant revolt in 1653 and emigrated toGermany which was recovering from depopulation during the ThirtyYears' War (1618-1648). They settled in Steinwenden, Rheinland-Pfalz,Germany probably in the early 1680s and became part of the Steinwendenand Konken German Reformed parish churches.
Irene (CHARITAS) M‹LLER died in 1692, probably in her early 20's.Michael later remarried to Anna Loysa REGINA.
Michael M‹LLER died on 31 January 1695 in Steinwenden at the age of40.
Michael's widow, Anna, remarried a year and a half later to Hans JacobSTUTZMAN (Jr.) in 1696 and had a son Johann Jacob STUTZMAN.
Some records hold Anna Loysa (REGINA) M‹LLER as Michael's mother. HereI hold her as his step-mother (as many other researchers do) andspeculate that Michael was raised by Anna and her second husband, HansJacob STUTZMAN (Jr.)

In 1705, he married Regina Elisabetha ???? at the Luthern Church atKallstadt, Spiez/Lake Thun, Berne, Switzerland.

Johann emigrated to the U.S., arriving on 10/2/1727 on the S.S.Adventure, Capt. John Davies, Master, from Rotterdam, last fromPlymouth, England.

According to family legend, Johann lost his wife and all his childrenexcept for his two sons, Jacob and Christian, who came with him to theU.S.

Supposedly, Johann returned to the old country, Spiez, on Lake Thun,in the Aare Valley, Switzerland, and left his son, Jacob, to the Amishand another son, Christian, to Lutherans. Most descendants are fromone of these two.

The return of Johann to his homeland is unconfirmed. It is alsopossible that he died at sea, along with his wife, and that the Johannlisted on the passenger list is his son, 21-year-old Johann. It wascustomary to list only the free white males, aged 16 and above, onship passenger lists.

At least one of the two Johann Jacobs was born on the Weilacher Hof,near Hardenberg, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany. He was a baptized Lutheran.His property in Goonheim, which had been administered for him undercare of a guardian, was later surrendered to relatives in 1773 onsecurity.

Jacob Stutzman was born about 1660 in Spiez, Near LakeThun,Switzerland. He married Anna Loysa Regina Mueller on September29, 1696 inQuirnback, Pfalz, Germany. Anna was born in Zollikofen,Canton of Bern,Switzerland. She was the widow of Johann MichaelMueller (Miller), also from Zollikofen,who passed away January 31,1695 in Steinwenden, Reinland-Pfalz, Germany. Reginaand Johann Jacobhad six children, one of whom also fits into our family tree.They andtheir son Johann Michael Miller were ancestors to Susannah Miller,whomarried into the Ulrichfamily and was the grandmother to DavidUlrichStutzman. There are close ties to between the Stutzman andMiller families forgenerations.
