States: Georgia: Paulding
Mr. Cook, I have the following "Parris" surname in Paulding Co.,GA mid-late 1800's info :  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] '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. Hugh H. Miller was widowed from 1st wife ,Lusinda, on 1870 Federal Census, California Township, Paulding Co.,GA. 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
