Museum-pictureOn June 9, Trevor Hance Miller with his father Robert Miller and grandparents Raymond and Ruth Miller, donated a copy of the 1917 Hance family tree to the Wilderness Road Regional Museum in Newbern, Virginia.
The museum is located in the home of Newbern founder and revolutionary war patriot, Adam Hance. Adam Hance is Trevor’s C.A.R. patriot and Ruth Miller’s DAR patriot.
The Wilderness Road Regional Museum posted this information and picture on their website: “Today, three generations of descendants of Newbern founder Adam Hance presented an extensive Hance family tree to the museum. Thanks to Ruth Miller for discovering us in her genealogy searching and for bringing her family, including her grandson Trevor Hance Miller who carries on the Hance name! Visitors can now see this fantastic gift in the Hance Store Exhibit, the display commemorating the store owned by Adam Hance’s son, Henry.”
