Mr. Cook, I have the following "Parris" surname in Paulding Co.,GA mid-late 1800's info : [1] Mrs. Sophia Parris[unknown age] married [my gggrandfather], Hugh H. Miller on 12 October 1871 in Paulding Co.,GA [Source: Book "B", Paulding County, Georgia Marriages of 1866-1882, Page #97 & Index Page "M" which is located at the GA Archives, Dr. #127, Box #60] [2]'Apparently' she divorced or died on/ before 1880 Federal Census as she is NOT the wife [Sarah, abt. 20 yrs. younger than Hugh] living with Hugh H. Miller & son, James E. in Acorn Tree Township, Paulding CO.,GA.[3] Hugh H. Miller was widowed from 1st wife ,Lusinda, on 1870 Federal Census, California Township, Paulding Co.,GA. [4]Oldest son of Hugh H. Miller & Lusinda, William Benton Miller lived in home that adjoined the Baptist Church which Aaron referred to in his posting. I have been told by another MILLER researcher that Hugh & son William & his son all assisted burying the Confederate dead following that infamous battle.I have not yet researched this issue myself. All the above data/location suggests that your PARRIS may well have been related in some fashion to the same Mrs. Sophia Parris who was later the second wife of Hugh H. Miller [Sr.]. Regards, Mary
