Generation 8

Herbert Everett Miller and Family

 At first, I could not find information on the all the children and grandchildren of Jesse E. Miller and his wife, Anna Mickles.  Most the information about offspring # 3 (Herbert) were found on census records and because Leslie's grandson, Hyle Miller, told me about himself, his parents and siblings. However, recently (Jan 2010) I was contacted by other Miller relatives who have been greatly helpful to me in adding historic details to this website.  The new information on this page was contributed by Joyce Ramsey Jackson who is a great great Granddaughter of William Benjamin Miller and Catherine Anne Hover Miller and my "cousin".
