Goodwin Miller, your 3rd(?) great grandfather
Melinda and "Aunt Shirley,"

Thank you for what you are doing. I am the keeper of the flame for my family and my husband's family. Your notes about Goodwin Miller are wonderful!

Goodwin Miller and Sarah Glasson are my husband, Jim Miller's, third great grandparents. The Miller line is the most difficult line I have worked on. I knew Jim's grandfather James Clifford Miller, and even met his great grandmother, Margaret Susan "Maggie"Milligan Miller, once, but I was never able to extract much information from them about family. Since their deaths, I have visited other relatives -- who also are gone now -- and am doing my best.

Have you been able to trace back beyond Obediah Miller and Elizabeth? I found one Census return for Obediah, Sr., and a couple for Obediah, Jr., but little else. The name "Obediah" makes me think these Millers might have been Germanic, but I have no proof. I hope my Jim Miller will be able to join the FTDNA Miller project and learn some more.

Bless you for doing what you are doing. I manage only one small family cemetery near the Atlanta Airport and a few plots beyond that.

Best wishes,
Demaris Guest Humphries Miller

Your Aunt Shirley
Just noticed that you have taken some of Shirleys memorials into your care. Hoping Shirley is ok. I have had the pleasure of working with her regarding my Rice/ Stubblefield line in Arkansas. I sent her a note within the last month and got no reply. Please let me know!!

Pvt James O Miller # 133287931
Melinda I am working on a virtual cemetery for all the members of the 16th Georgia Infantry and created a memorial for James O Miller, killed at the Battle of Cramptons Gap Sept 14 1862. I found in the settlement documents that his father was Goodwin Miller and linked the memorials. I am happy to transfer management of James' memorial to you since you are a family member. Please advise.

Goodwin Miller:

A correction on my correction: Goodwin Miller's 3rd wife, Winnifred Green Miller Harvey, died on 25 April 1923 - thirty-five years after Goodwin passed.

Thank you!

On Goodwin Miller's bio:

Goodwin is buried in Barrow County, Georgia (it is listed as Walton County). His third wife, Winnifred Green Miller, did not pass away until 1926 or 1927, nearly 40 years after he died. Her death date is not engraved on her headstone. Their daughter, Elvina is buried with them. Winnifred's 2nd husband, Ezekiel P. Harvey (1813-1897) is buried on the other side of Winnifred.

Thank you!

Melinda, Do you have the article about Moses found in the book Portrait and Biographical record of Iroquois County, Illinois? I've tried get findagrave to add the article or transfer his memorial to me, but they are not responding. If you would like it... let me know and I'll scan the pages and send to you.
