I am trying to find more information on Samuel Cassell MCMILLIAN b. 3 Dec 1898 d. 9 Apr 1995 –Carroll County, VA.

I am becoming very confused on where his line fits in the family.

My understanding from at least two different sources is that he is the son of
Alex (or Alexander) MCMILLIAN and Louise BOWMAN.

Alex (or Alexander) is the son of a John MCMILLIAN.

Now I do also know that there is a Alexander MCMILLIAN who is the son of a Capt. James Lee MCMILLIAN and Sarah Jane MCMILLIAN.


At any rate with so many people with the same first, middle, and last names- I am becoming confused.

I guess what I want or need to know is,

Is Samuel Cassell MCMILLIAN and his father Alex (or Alexander) at any way connected to the other MCMILLIANS? Well actually they are but that’s not exactly what I mean. I guess I mean is there a direct connection? I’ve probably got you confused by now, haven’t I!

John MCMILLIAN (no dates) m. ????????

Alexander MCMILLIAN (no birth or death dates) m. date unknown Louisa BOWMAN (no birth or death dates) (daughter of Joel BOWMAN & Susie DICKENS)

Samuel Cassell MCMILLIAN (b. 3 Dec 1898 d. 9 Apr 1995 –Carroll County, VA.
married Laura Elizabeth DAWSON (b. 17 Mar 1901-Virginia d. 2 Nov. 1996 –Carroll County, VA) – (daughter of Alfred Murry DAWSON and Emma Etta HALL) on Apr 1920 in Carroll County, VA

I guess what I’m trying to find out is- When and where was Alexander MCMILLIAN born and died and who are his parents? When and where was John MCMILLIAN born and died and who did he marry? etc.

Please help me clear up the confusion. Many, many THANKS!!!!
