Lottie Mae Miller was my g grandmother. She had a brother named Thomas Herbert Miller. She was born in 1873 in St.Marys,Mo and he was born 1869 in IL. Their father Peter Miller was so upset when his wife died that he left his two young childfen with neighbors or relatives and he returned to Germany. He was never heard from again. Lottie(8 yrs old) was left with Julius Betzel and his wife Mozela Underwood Betzel. Thomas Herbert Miller was left with D.P.Cloninger in Wayne Co.Mo. According to the 1880 census, his wife's name was Tulitha and they had a 1 yr. old son, named Henry S. Cloninger. There was also a 62 yr old woman named Katherine Fox. Later, Lottie was in a household in Madison Co.Mo when she was a teenager. There were Millers, Shultes, Schwaners, and a woman (65) named Louisa Fox. I would appreciate any help in figuring out who were just neighbors that took in the kids as servants, and who were relatives. I would like one day to find my Peter Millers family in Germany.
