MILLER posted by Denver Miller on Saturday, September 11, 1999

My name is Denver Miller and I live in Pasadena, CA.

I am trying to find the death dates for my great-great grandparents, John and Mary A MILLER, both born in 1829 in Germany .... They came to Roane in the 1870's, and were on the 1880 census. In the 1900 census they were 71 years old and lived with son Charles .... In 1910 Mary is a widow and still with son Charles .... They lived on Island Run Road - does this road still exist? Mary's other son's, Joseph and John C (my great grandfather) lived close by ....
