The Family of Jonathan and Mary Ann (GREAVES) HIGHFIELD (HYFIELD)
Click on thumbnail pictures to enlarge and click on the "back" button to restore the page.
This appears to be the most likely parentage for Mary HIGHFIELD, wife of Reverend Robert MILLER.  I took the information from a
family tree at and it is fairly well sourced.  I have not yet independently confirmed the information other than back-
checking the sources listed in the family tree - marriage records and local census data that were linked to the tree itself.  I'm going
with this until I am able to finally independently confirm it (this note will then disappear) or disconfirm it (this page will disappear).

                                                                       [So this would mean John married his father's first wife?  That's just weird.  I'm not believing this tidbit]

                                                        [This makes no sense either - they have James marrying Kate whoever first and now Lucretia - 7 years after his death and supposedly
                                                        this is his first wife.  I think they've got James all messed up with someone else - several someones actually.  More work for sure here]
