- This is the George Michael Eller that is the subject of Hook's 1957 book.
George Michael Eller is well doccumented in Frederick County, Maryland, after 1773. Many of his family say he first lived in Rowan County, North Carolina, with the other members of the Eller Family.
He could be the Michael Eller on the tax roll in 1771 in Randolph County (formed from Rowan County). His sons Peter, Leonard, John and George all lived in Rowan, one as late as 1773.
And his daughter, Mary (Maria) is believed to have married Jacob Eller, son on immigrant John Melker Eller.
