Bio and Links
Bio Photo Am a retired plastics engineer living near Cleveland, OH. Am the primary researcher on the Rhodes/Rhoades/Rhoads/Roades families who originated in Bedford Co., PA. Three brothers came to Montgomery Co., OH (Dayton area) in 1810. Descendants moved north to Darke and Miami Co., OH and to Rush, Henry, Cass, Fulton Co., IN, and onward. Also the Frederick Osswald family. He immigrated to the Dayton area in 1854 with most of the families still in the area. I also do my late wife's (51 years) Mason family who were primarily along the Ohio River, including Maysville, KY and Manchester, OH. Now I'm working on my new wife's line that is Hungarian and Italian.

Re: Elizabeth Tittle
I have seen spellings of Elizabeth's surname as Sehler,Seiler,Sailor & Saylor & last as Siler. Henry's brother Ulery is mentioned as a executor of his will, his 1st wife Elizabeth is also buried in the same cemetery as Henry & Magdalena Sehler but the spelling is Seiler. Ulery left Montgomery County OH & went to Rush Co. IN where he is buried with the surname spelled as Siler. Henry & Magdalena's gravestones were probably carved like the engraver heard it. Regardless of the spelling, you should linked Elizabeth Tittle to her parents in Slifer cemetery.

RE: Jacob Ruby
Dear Roger,

Please forgive me...I have over 200 submitted edits pending, and I don't remember this request to delete Jacob Ruby's memorial. Was it a duplicate?

RE: Wm. L. Miller
Hi Roger

Good detective work! Thanks for keeping me updated. Just to let you know that I also found that William and Elizabeth son, Frank died in 1962 in Wisconsin. Found Frank in 1940 census Wausaukee, Marinette, Wisconsin, with his sister Harriet "Hattie" (Miller) Schof. I have sent in edits to have Frank and Harriet linked to parents. They are both buried in Wausaukee Evergreen Cemetery, Wausaukee
Marinette County, Wisconsin. Harriet does not have a death date on her stone w/hubby and I haven't been able to find a death date either.

Thank you so much! So glad you found Elizabeth.

RE: Wm. L. Miller
Hi Roger

Thank you. Yes I have the same info on William's date of birth as you do. I found another article dated Sep 3 1909, The Daily Republican (Rushville, Indiana) where Frank had tried to commit suicide and it said that William was a widow at that time. Looked again for an obituary or death notice on Elizabeth, no luck. If interested I will upload the application for headstone that has Williams date of death, onto his memorial and you can pick it up there.
I guess the next step if you are really interested is to contact the historical society in Rush Co.,, maybe they would have an obituary on Elizabeth. Or call the cemetery or who is in charge of it.

Like you I am sure that she is buried in Paul Hill and there is no marker.

RE: Wm. L. Miller
Hi Roger

Thank you for your input, I really appreciate it. I went ahead and delinked Elizabeth 1864-1937 from William Louis Miller. Found on where his daughter Stella "Miller" Whitinger had ordered a marker for her dad, William on Oct 12, 1928. William died 18 Aug 1928 probably St. Paul but definitely in Decatur Co.. Also found many articles on William where he had been beaten up by his son, Frank who was in sane (Mar 1911). William was a mail carrier. If you would like some of these articles I would be glad to send them to you. I never found an obituary on William.

What do you know abt Elizabeth "Rhoades" Miller? I have that she died bef 1910 as William is a widow in 1910 Adams, Decatur, Indiana. Also corrected that census as they have him listed as William R Miller. Never found an obituary on Elizabeth or found that she remarried.
