Landed Gentry of the Blue Ridge

Record #:
The landed gentry colonized a part of the Appalachian Mountains. The first white settlers in the area were Ambrose and son, William Mills. The Mills family faced multiple attacks, some due in part to their Royalist persuasion, but mostly from Native Americans who pillaged and burned their homes on several occasions.
