Family and friends are my greatest treasures! I became interested in locating cemeteries when my daughter and I found the Miller Cemetery in Woodbine, TX. This is a privately owned family cemetery.

I am interested the families of Creech and Bailey from Lee County VA, Joseph Miller, Turner, Goodnight, and Dye from Cooke County Texas.

In addition, I am interested in the Gaar, Quick, and Switzer families from Carroll County, IL.

I have included photos of our family of which I am the owner and possess. They can be copied by direct family for private use only. That means please do not post these online! If you copy my personal Find A Grave information, please give credit to me, my research, and Find A Grave.

2 Cor.5:6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: 7(For we walk by faith, not by sight:) 8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

Benjamin Franklin said: "Show me your burial grounds and I'll show you a measure of the civility of a community."

I am also related to the Banning and Millers in the family cemetery. Elizabeth J. Scarce was my Gr. Gr. Grandma. It's driving me crazy not being able to find out where she and Benjamin are buried. I assume it was in Collinsville due to the last place of residence was on the 1900 census and it says Collinsville. Unfortunately burial records from the Collinsville cemetery were lost in a fire in the late 1930's so anyone who was buried there prior to that has no record. The cemetery committee has walked and documented the existing headstones numerous times which is the only record they have. I am also searching for a paper trail to whom Ben E. Scarce belongs to in Tenn. There is absolutely no documentation of his parents or him prior to his arrival to Cooke County. I have had a DNA test to verify that I am indeed related to the Scarce's. I have been in contact with several family members from the branches that appear to fit for him and based on a DNA study of the Scarce/Scearce family we do match even though they can't locate him either. I have visited the cemetery twice now and in fact about 2 weeks ago we started cleaning it up and removing all the dead limbs and cutting back the thorn bushes. There is a fence around it now thanks to the property owner.

That's ok I was able to get over to the court house and have copies made. Thank you though. Are you related to the Miller/Banning family in Woodbine by chance? If so, I wonder if we are not also kin/

Hello, Jeremiah Banning and Matilda are my 4th gr grandparents. I was wondering if you might have a copy of the note (" Matilda sold 50 acres of property to T.B. Sullivant on a note on January 14,1884, after Jeremiah's death.") that you mentioned in the memorial page? If you happen to have it, I would really appreciate it if I could get a copy for my records. Thanks

Miller family
I am researching the Grady family of Chariton County MO. My grgrgr grandfather Reuben Grady was married to a Lucinda Miller b.1814 Ky. The only Miller in the area is a Joseph Miller #58525562 in the 1850 census. Could this be her brother? Who would be his parents? Thank you for any help.
