    6. David Millar (junior)
      David Millar (junior) was born in 1836 in County Tyrone. He married Mary Anne Woodburn (born in County Derry about 1838) on Mar.7, 1861, in Garvagh First Presbyterian Church, parish of Errigal, civil district of Coleraine, County Londonderry. On the marriage certificate he is described as of full age, a bachelor farmer of Churchtown, County Tyrone whose father is David Millar, a farmer, while Mary Anne is decribed as a spinster of full age of Ballintemple whose father is Matthew Woodburn, a farmer. The witnesses were Thomas Millar (probably his eldest brother) and James McElpatrick. David and Mary Anne must have moved around for their son Charles was born in County Fermanagh in 1863 while their daughter Isabella and their first son John were born in County Tyrone in 1865 and 1873 and their son William Walter and daughter Agness were born in County Fermanagh in 1875 and 1882. So they must have moved from Newtown Stewart, County Tyrone, to Lack, County Fermanagh between 1873 and 1875. By the time of the 1901 Census they are living in the village of Lack. In the 1896 Belfast and Ulster Directory, the section on the village of Lack includes the inhabitant David Millar, clerk of the petty sessions. Since the petty sessions in Lack were only held every month or so this was probably a part time assignment and David probably also ran a farm. Though David is listed in the Lack household in the 1911 Census, he appears to have been absent during the 1901 Census and so is not listed in that return. However, in the 1911 Census David is listed as a 72-year-old Clerk of the Petty Sessions (Presbyterian like the rest of the family and born in County Tyrone) living in the village of Lack, County Fermanagh, with his wife, 72-year-old Mary Anne Miller (born in County Derry), two of their children, and two grandchildren, 5-year-old Ella Noble (Anglican and born in Co.Fermanagh) and 1-year-old Gordon Miller (Presbyterian and born in Belfast). Also listed in the household is a domestic servant, 18-year-old Mary Anne Higherty, a Roman Catholic born in County Tyrone. David Miller is also listed as a Clerk of the Petty Sessions on the marriage certificate of his son John Wesley Miller. David died in Lack on Jul.21, 1913. Some of the children of David and Mary Anne Millar:
      1. David Miller, son of David and Mary Ann Miller, was born on Dec.15, 1861, in Churchtown, Parish of Ardstraw, County Tyrone, and was baptized in Ardstraw Presbyterian Church on Mar.23, 1862.

In the 1896 Belfast and Ulster Directory, the section on the village of Lack, County Fermanagh, includes the inhabitant Thomas Millar, loan fund clerk, draper, and general merchant. On Sep.28, 1912, he signed the Ulster Covenant at 110 Wellington Street, Glasgow, Scotland, which may mean he had moved to Glasgow and could explain why he is not recorded in the 1901 or 1911 Census for Lack.
