Re: Wharton Miller (b NY, Sept 9, 1889; died March 1970) [son of Melville Isaac Miller & Fannie Wharton Sampson], Director, School of Library Sciences, & Director of Libraries, Syracuse University; & his wife, Beth Rice Miller (b Buffalo, NY, Dec 19, 1887; d Feb 11, 1958) [daughter of Wm Howard Rice & Donalda Cameron], Instructor, School of Library Sciences, Syracuse University.
I am presently attempting to learn more about my maternal Grandmother's 2nd cousin, the above mentioned Beth Rice Miller & her husband, Wharton Miller. I believe their son, Wharton Howard Miller (b Apr 11, 1926; d Jan 28, 1992), librarian, of Massapequa, NY, was a graduate of Syracuse University.
I would be most grateful if someone in Syracuse or Schenectady might be willing to locate & send me obituaries of Wharton & Beth Miller, from the Syracuse and/or Schenectady newspapers. I do have their brief biographical sketches included in "Who's Who In Library Sciences."
I would dearly love to contact Wharton & Beth's descendants & share with them the voluminous amount of material I have collected on our mutual ancestors, the Longs of Longfield House, Cashel, Tipperary, Ireland. Through the Longs & Clarkes, Beth & my Grandmother, Florence Long Howe, were 3rd cousins of the Anglo-Irish author, Elizabeth Bowen. They were also 3rd cousins once removed to Constance Lloyd, wife of Oscar Wilde. Our Ancestors, Sir John Salusbury (d 1612), Knight of Llewenny, Denbigh, Wales, & his wife, Ursula Stanley (d 1636), Lady Salusbury, were friends & patrons of the young William Shakespeare, who is believed to have composed in their honour, a nuptial ode, "The Phoenix and The Turtle."
