Martha Miller/1800's

When I was a child I lived in Bethel Township, McDonough County, Illinois in a tiny village called Fandon that still exists today. It is still tiny. In any case there is a lone tombstone on some private property (unsure who owns it, would have to check) with the name Martha Miller inscribed. Can't recall the date of her death but the story that was repeated over the years was that she was a married woman who was traveling with her husband through that area when she took ill. He remembered where he had laid her to rest and either he or one of their children returned later to put up the marker. It is a lovely little burial spot, and as I said, the inscription is very brief. The stone is weathered and may be illegible now. Just thought I would share that with those people searching for information on their Miller Ancestry.
