I am looking for an obit, will or biography on CHARLES FENTON MILLER who was born 1825 in Virginia, married Elizabeth unknown of TN, and came to Starkville, Oktibbeha Co MS by 1842. He was a prominent lawyer and esteemed citizen in Starkville until his death in around 1877. He also served as state representative in 1860-61. This info is from the book "Historical sketches of Oktibbeha Co Mississippi." He is also listed in the book " A Catalogue of Descendents of Thomas Watkins of Chickohomany VA" and appears in 1850 & 1860 Starkville census, but I can't seem to find the family in 1870.

Also interested in finding an obit will or biography on CHARLES' son WILLIAM H MILLER b 1857 Starkville Oktibbeha Co MS, who married 1) Ruby Askew and 2) Willie Mae unknown. WILLIAM was the County Superintendant of Education in Starkville from 1892-1904. He is also mentioned in "Historical Sketches of Oktibbeha Co MS".

CHARLES FENTON MILLER was the brother of my gg grandfather WILLIAM FREDERICK MILLER, also a lawyer, who lived in Livingston Co MO.

Any help greatly appreciated!
