Stewarts/Summers/Husaks/Millers of Box Butte/Dawes County

I need help finding information about my Stewart/Summers/Husak/Miller ancestors/relatives. There is only 1 surviving, my great-uncle, but he doesn't know the answers I'm looking for.

George A. Stewart married Ella Eleanora Frazier. Who were their parents? Some of their children are Charles, Andrew, Estella, Blanche, and there are more, but I can't think of them off the top of my head. Charles was born in Salem, Kansas, but I'm not sure about the rest of the children.

Charles married Alice Grace Summers. Her parents were Josephine Husak and Clark Summers. Clark's family is from West Virginia, but that's all I know. Josephine's parents, Joseph & Josephine, came from Czechoslavakia. She also had a brother Ignatius, that I don't know much about.

Josephine (Husak) Summers also had a child out of wedlock before meeting Clark. The child's name was Carrie (Caroline), and married a Miller. I know they had at least 2 sons, one was named August "Swede" Miller, but I can't remember the other one's name, and I don't know if there were more children, or what Carrie's husband's name was.

My great-uncle will be able to answer a few questions, mainly about what some of his cousins' names were, but it will be at least next summer before I can travel to Chadron to visit him. The family farm is south of Chadron by about 20 miles, is in Dawes County, but has a Hemingford address. The Husak's and the Stewart's both homesteaded in that area, in fact, we still own the family farm that was homesteaded over 100 years ago. Unfortunately, nobody kept any records!
