Ha. What nickname are you referring to? My name is Jerry. Did you ever see John Candy's last movie called "Wagons East"? That was my grandparents...a grandfather and a great-grandfather went west and returned. Now I'm just out of Baltimore, MD.

RE: Charles Elliot Miller
Thanks for the correction. I'm evading cataract surgery. Emma has been added to Findagrave. has a record showing her marriage to be in December but since I can't see the original I can't guarantee it.

Charles Elliot Miller
I gave some thought to maybe Charles died somewhere else, until I looked at the 1900 census. Emma, his wife, and Mary, her mother-in-law, and George , her brother-in-law all lived near each other in Wolf River, Doniphan County Kansas in June, 1900, just six months after Charles died.
I have pictures of Charles, Emma and Parker, taken when Parker was still in diapers and another of just Emma and three children, one probably was Catherine who died about the same time as Charles.

Charles E. Miller
I'm having too many senior moments. My last message said Charles middle name was Edward, but my records say Elliot.

Charles E. Miller
My information for Charles comes from family papers.
Up until they died less than twenty years ago, my two aunts, Beulah and Pearl, were in frequent contact with descendents of the Miller's in Kansas, gathering and collecting the family history. Aunt Pearl was a pack rat and never threw anything out, not even the envelopes the letters were mailed in. Unfortunately, when she passed away at age 104, her son has the papers. I am in possession of a only few of them.

The name, Charles Edward, comes from those papers, including his death due to tuberculosis and Emma's remarriage to an Andrews.

Thannks for Rufus's story. I also lost his and Pearl's application for a marriage license.

Charles E. Miller
I've been trying to find Charles' gravesite myself with no luck. I know that Emma remarried to John R. Andrew. My tree shows John buried in Moray, KS, but Emma is buried in Los Angels, California. She may have gone there to be with her brother-in-law Allen. I'm guessing here.

As for Rufus, I had the Marysville, KS, historical society send me Rufus' obituary from 1910 and I accidentally deleted it. I was going to add him to Findagrave but didn't. Rufus drowned in the Big Blue River after possibly being hit by lightning.

I've been trying to find out as much as I can about that family after they left West Virginia in 1888. My grandfather, Henry, Charles' brother, returned to WV about 1896.

RE: James Elliott and Anna
FIXED! That was strange. Normally Find A Grave prevents that.
Thanks for the heads-up

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 45568215
IS there a way we can communicate without me writing on your public message board.?
I would like to send you my email, but don't actually want everyone to have it.
I think if I can give my cousin information on how she can contact you, she might feel more comfortable about that .
Thanks Thelma.

Find A Grave Memorial# 45568215
Can I have your permission to copy the photo of Sam and Euncie holding Sam jr and Jerry. Happy to give you credit.
Or to get a better quality photo, I can send you my email directly, for a submission of better quality photo. I am also a contributor.
I am building a family tree for my cousin, D Fisher, she is a direct descendant of Sam and Eunice.
Appreciate your consideration.

RE: Craine vs Crane
opps another cemetery not another state but does not mention her in his obit

RE: Craine vs Crane
Craine is right someone created a duplicate my search is from her obituary she was married twice first to Jacka then to Craine. Charles A. Craine was her second husband If I am right he is in another state already with a memorial on find a Grave. I think it's Charles Allen Craine If I read the paper right a divorce was filed between them in 1944 I think that was the year but I could be wrong on that year.
So go with whom you think is right on this search if mine is wrong I will be glad to delete this memorial..
Thanks Annie.

Cora Mink
I would be happy to transfer Cora's memorial to you if you would like. If not I will add her information. My wife has family all around Whiting too(Parrett,Parrott,Fees, Bender). We do cemetery road trips to that area quite often. If there is anyone there you are looking for let us know and we'll try to find them. The cemetery has a board with all burials listed.

Thanks for pointing this out to me. Every once in a while I make a stupid mistake. I have relatives buried in both cemeteries, so I know the difference, and have been in both Watkins Hill & Green Mound hundreds of times. I don't have an explanation---I'll delete mine.

RE: Henry Milton Crum
Margaret Laverne Crum was my mother. Evidently she was born out of wedlock when my granny was 15 or 16! I found her birth certificate at Piatt Co. Courthouse showing Wiley Childress as her father (a migrant farm worker) however she was given my granny's maiden name (Lay) on birth certificate. She did not marry Childress. Painter was to be her step-father and my Aunt Doris's father. I asked Aunt Doris about it but evidently the information about my grandfather Childress went to grave with granny!! Aunt Doris knew nothing about it. Gran borrowed the Painter name for Mom to cover up evidently.
