I am looking for my great grandfather's (Wesley Miller) mom and dad. I know from looking at Wesley and Ida L. Miller's marriage license application that his mom's maiden name was Burns and his dad's name was "Joes" or Joseph. I also have the record of "Joes" Miller and Malinda J. Burns' marriage on 17 Nov 1874 in Kosciosko County, Indiana. About 7 years later, Malinda J. Burns remarried to a man named Andrew Peas Hunt. Both of Andrew's and Malinda's obits refer to Wesley Miller from South Bend, where I was born, as her son and his step-son so I know Joseph is Wesley's dad. Trouble is that I can't find out what happened to him. Did he die or did they get a divorce? He's completely off of the grid. I looked at census information and find a grave, etc. I assume he was born around 1855 and don't know his dob or dod or anything about his parents. Anyone with any information about Joseph's fate and/or who his parents/siblings were, please contact me at
