Bio and Links
Bio Photo Live in Mount Carmel,Pennsylvania. Trying to find other family members of Harold Siebert Miller(father),John Seibert Miller(Gf),William Miller(Ggf)Lafayette Derr(MGgf),Israel Derr(MGGgf),John William Boyer(MGf), Joseph Boyer(MGGf). Also related to the Weikels, Kerstetters and Updegrove[sic]

As for changing incorrect information, I am happy to do so. I am also willing to transfer any of my memorial, for I am running out of time.

PLEASE feel free to visit my "Lost Little Angels" & "Lost Angels" Virtual Cemeteries anytime and leave them a Token and Note. These children & adults are lost in time because they have no headstone to tell us where they are buried in a cemetery or even on a family plot. My own twin brother and sister, Daniel & Nancy Miller, are a part of this group. So is my Maternal Great Grandmother. Records usually don't help, they simply say yes, they're buried here, but where, we don't exactly know. Just remember, you may be the only other person beside myself to visit a "Lost Little Angel" or "Lost Angel". Some of these lost children may not even have a living ancestor,"PLEASE VISIT THEM". Thank You from the bottom of My Heart.

For those memorials that have the phrase "Date obituary appeared in the paper," the paper I am referring to is one of the following from Mount Carmel, Pennsylvania, United States:

The Weekly Item
The Semi-Weekly Item
The Mount Carmel Item (their daily paper)
The Daily News

The obituary you seek, will be somewhere in one of these Mount Carmel papers, depending on what date they were published. Do not be disappointed if the obituary has very little information written in it, some were very short in content and some only mentioned the name. Reporters constantly spelled names "phonetically", which can change the actual spelling of a persons' name very dramatically, so be very aware of this fact. I tried my very best not to make mistakes but sometimes, I had little information to work with. I may have placed someone in the wrong cemetery, spelled the name incorrectly, connected two family members together who were not husband & wife and things like that. For this, I am truly sorry, I'm only human and humans make mistakes.

UPDATE: September 16th,2015.
It is with a very heavy heart, that I must write the following. For 12 years, I read 104 years of local newspaper so that I could make a personal obituary database. I have also now walked through 14 different cemeteries in the local Mount Carmel, Pennsylvania area and completely photographed every headstone I could find in each cemetery. I have taken over 40,000 photos and used them on my own memorials and placed them on other memorials as well. I have also uploaded thousands of "Lost Little Angels" & "Lost Angels" memorials for those individuals who have no headstone to tell us where they are buried.

In my attempt to help mankind, I began to upload my personal database of over 50,000 names. This is when I ran into a problem, for which I asked Find-a-grave for advice on how to solve it. I have received an answer and I will abide by that decision. In principal, I agree with the advice but I feel they have left mankind down. You see, while using my obituary database as my guide for making a memorial, I hit a snag. Thousands of the obituaries did not include a burial site and there in lies the problem.

Hi Robert,

I thought you were related to Mabel's second Husband George Miller. If you are related to Albert Spatzer and Sarah Miller then I may be able to help you with your search. I am a direct descendent of Mabel Spatzer and Earl Raymond Berger. They are my Great Grandparents. I do have some photos of a Miller Family that my Grandmother Marjorie J Berger had in her possession. They are labeled Charles Miller. If you would like me to assist if you are related to the Sarah Miller side of the family please email directly at for privacy reasons of course. Sorry for any misunderstanding. Doing family trees with a German Heritage can make you cross eyed.

Thanks for getting back, Robert. We may have made some management switches back in 2013, but I did not recall "Viola" being on Mary's "header". She was my great grandmother and the various documents I have never showed a middle name or initial. Since I was finishing up some genealogy on her family, I guess that's why I asked about it...don't think the name belongs to her.

RE: My Great Grandmother
Mabel Berger is my Great Grandmother. She was the wife of the Late Earl Raymond. After he passed he married your relative. So yes I have the right person. We called her Mam. I am in no relation to you or your family. I am the direct descendent of Mabel.

Hello Robert,

I was just curious about the addition of the middle name "Viola" to Mary's name. I have a number of different records for her but none showing the use of that name or even a middle initial. Just wanting to know if you have something that I don't?
