Info from Florida State Genealogical Society:

William MILLER was born 24 November 1790 in Georgia, probably in Laurens
County. His parents are unknown, although there is some indication that his
father was also named William. He married Sarah "Sally" Miller in Laurens
County on 3 March 1814. In 1824 the Territorial Governor of Florida granted
him the right to operate a ferry over Holmes Creek at a site later called
Millers Ferry, and now identified on state Road 284 in Washington County, where
the road crosses Holmes Creek.
