Ike moved with his parents from Bell Co., TX to Dallas in 1892/1893. At some time in late 1890's to early 1900, Ike drove a horse drawn street car in Dallas. He was also a farmer in his early adulthood. Ike and Pearl lived in Dallas in one of his father's houses after they got married. Pearl returned to Athens so the family doctor, Old Dr. Hodge, could deliver her first child but when Hubert was born Dr. Hodge was out of town and another doctor had to deliver him. Ike and Pearl moved with his parents to Stephens Co., TX when Martin Miller sold his property in Dallas and purchased a section of land in Stephens Co. Martin and several of his married children moved onto this property on Jan. 1, 1907 and most of the family lived in tents till houses were built.

Cleo and Lee Roy were born while the family lived in Stephens Co. Ike moved his family to Athens sometime between late 1910 or in 1911 and into Pearl's parents homeplace.
