Miller/Lester Union 1904,Miami Co.,IN

Am trying to find out what happened to John J. Miller and his wife Maud L. Miller. I've followed them through 1830. They appear to have been childless. My interest is in Maud. She was the only child of my great-great Uncle, James Henry Lester, whose obituary appeared in the Indianapolis News on December 11, 1907. He was a machinist for the Chandler-Taylor Company, but formerly had lived with his first wife (who pre-deceased him) and his daughter Maud in Peru, Miami, County Indiana. The 1880 census lists them as follows in Ward 4:

James Lester age 27 born Ohio
Elizabeth Lester age 24 born IN (died June 1898)
Maud Lester age 1 born IN

The SSDI shows two Maud Millers who could possibly be our relative. One died in June of 1963 and the other in January 1978. I am posting this in hopes that someone might know if there is an obituary for Maud Miller in Peru. Her husband John J. Miller was a Merchant in the city all of his life. The 1910 census said Sporting Goods. Any help would be appreciated. Also have much information on the Lester family to share.
