Joseph D. Miller
Tried to send the below to your email but it kept getting bounced.


Came across the below while looking for information on a grave in Davis County, Iowa and thought I would offer it for your consideration. I believe it to be your Joseph D. Miller (Find A Grave Memorial# 22967329)


Miller. On the 14th of July 1896 in Green Twp., Iowa Co., Iowa., Joseph D., son of Daniel D. Miller, aged 13 years, 4 months. Buried on the l6th. Funeral services by N.D. Yoder and C.J. Miller, from 1 Thess. 4:1318.
This boy was strangely afflicted for about a year. Several physicians examined him but were unable to render any help, nor could they say what was the matter, for the disease was unknown to medical science. His father took him to the Drake Sanitarium at Des Moines last spring, but in vain, he lost his eyesight and his head grew faster than the rest of his body.
During the latter part of his sickness he was almost helpless but suffered no pain.

(From page 271 of the September 1, 1896 issue of "The Herald of Truth".)

Hermina Kittl
Saw your request this morning and had already linked her to her parents..and then I saw your message. I created the memorials from the Cook County Death records, and am not related to this family at all, so decided to transfer Hermina and her parents to you. I hope you follow thru on adding more amily members and more information, the story about Ellis Island should be included, and pictures are always wonderful! I dont know if her plot is marked with a stone or could try requesting a picture. Good luck!

Corrections made to Swartzendruber Memorials
Hi Royce,

Thank you for the bios for Lucy and Samuel Swartzendruber. I've added them to their memorials. If you are a relative, I'd be happy to transfer them over to you. I transcribed most of that cemetery one day while my daughter was in a class at the church, so I'm not related to anyone there. :-)

Not a relative, just found some obituaries that I sent forward.
