Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been studying my family history for the past several years. My mother's ancestors were all from Ulster County, New York, and my father was from Wayne County, Mississippi. Most of my research has been on my mother's side, since I live in New York State, but I have a lot of information on the Mills and Lewis families of Alabama and Mississippi too.
I am always glad to share whatever I find out.
I am a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and I have worked hard to find multiple patriots in my family tree and also have helped many others find their Revolutionary-era ancestors.
I do not make changes on memorials that are suggested by anonymous users of Find-a-Grave. Please include contact information so I can contact you if I need to.

RE: Rufus and Samuel Taggart
Hi, Gretchen,

You're welcome. I haven't finished yet - I keep being interrupted today.

I do have the cemetery records that still exist. The problem is that the oldest extant records start in 1891, 40 years after the cemetery was opened. Both Rufus and Eliza died long before that, so the only evidence of their burials is their markers. Because I didn't have a date of death for Samuel, I put his burial date in his bio section. I haven't gotten to Orzelia yet, so I'm not sure right now what I have for her. Will know in a few minutes, when I finish this note.

Do you need copies of the records for Samuel and Orzelia? I photographed all of the records last year, and can send you the pictures of their pages in the records. I've never dealt with DAR, so I don't know what they consider acceptable evidence. Is it acceptable if it comes from me?

It might be better to continue this discussion with a bit more privacy. My email address is at the top of my profile page - you just have to put it into the correct format - easy for people, hard for robots.

I'll get back to work now! Take care.

Left a couple post ems on the files for them referred them to here.
Do you know of any male MILLS of this line who might consider joining the MILLS DNA project?
Can go to under MILLS
the YDNA test, tells which tree they are.
And or also do the 'new' Family Finder test, expands what other folks are related to your MILLS line, shared ancestors.'

I will un link James from my file with Elam.
I do have an Elam, on the pension files for Kansas.
So must not be them.

Thank you for correction to my files.

Thank you for all the information you have gathered.

Thank you!
Thank you for the time you put into this project. My mother, Jeanette Enty was the granddaughter of Julia Enty; the daughter of Maud and William Enty and the sister of Frances Enty LaTarr (Tarr). She was adopted at an early age due to her mother's illness. She always remembered her mother's name as well as her brothers and sisters but she had never mentioned her grandmother. When she would mention some relatives, she knew we were connected but couldn't quite explain how. All of a sudden, this information has become chrystal clear!
