Livy was the daughter of Alexander Miller. Livy applied for DAR in 1908, using her gr-grandfather Martin as her ancestor. (Original form shown under photos here)
She would have three children, tragically only one would live a long life. Winston would die at the age of 15, by drowning:
Infant Jane, born two years after Winston's passing:
And her only child that would survive to adulthood, Helen.
Livy and her husband, and all three children are all buried near one another. They lived on a farm a few miles from Roachdale.
Livia and Helen both obviously felt ancestry was important judging from the fact they were both DAR members. Since I believe their daughter Helen was the last of Alexander Miller's line, this memorial will serve to help keep their memories alive.
Livia also wrote poetry and had several books published.
Roachdale, Indiana Library has five small books of poetry by Livia. All books are signed and date from the 1960's and later.
