Millard Family Genealogy Forum
My great, great grandfather, Daniel Brown was married to Sophronia Ballard and upon their deaths are buried in Wallingford, Vermont. In their section there are five headstones, two are theirs, one is their son William Brown who died at age 5, another stone who I cannot remember, and the last stone just says "Little Frankie Bump". I believe Daniel's first wife was Eunice(last name unknown), and may have divorced and moved west. I have been trying to trace the Bump, Bumpas, Bumpus name for quite some time. Now Daniel and Sophronia eventually had another son, also named William(apparently in honor of their first son William who died). William Brown married Eunice Millard and had three children. Eunice was born in 1847 in Danby, Vt and had a sister Ellen and a brother whose name my mother cannot remember. It may be possible that Eunice's brother is your James Millard, married to Augusta Bump. But I can't figure how a Frankie Bump or a George Bump would be part of these parentages. Perhaps Eunice Brown(Daniel's first wife) remarried a Bump, and they had a son Frankie....its all very confusing, but through emails with other people who are researching the Millard name, Brown name, and Bump name, it may be that Millard and or Bump originated from the New England area and moved west. I also wonder if my Millard line is connected with President Millard Filmore, whose mother's maiden name was Phoebe Millard, who was born in Pittsfield, Mass. in 1781. And also, may be connected to your James Millard. I hope to get up to Vermont one of these days and do some serious record digging to see if I can put more pieces together.
