Hi Teresa, I'm sorry that you lost your genealogy. That would be devastating.

This is what I found. In 1900 William & Lavina Miller & family were living in Island Falls, Aroostock, Maine. William, b. March 1854, Canada English, married @ 24, immigrated in 1880, alien, laborer; Lavinia b. April 1859, Canada English, married @24, had given birth to 2 children & 2 were alive in 1900; All children born in ME; Harold, son, b. Nov 1886; Harold, b. March 1859, son; Lionel & Liona, twins, b. May 1892; Hazel, stepdau [even though listed as Hazel Miller], b. Nov 1893; and Isabel, dau, b. March 1899.

Then in 1910 the family was living in Haverhill Ward 3, Essex Co., MA. William W, 2nd marr, 12 yrs, b. Canada English, 51, laborer lumber yard; Mary M. Miller, 2nd marr, b. Canada English, 51, had given birth to 3 children & 3 alive in 1910; Charles Miller, grandson, b. ME, 8; Isabell Miller, daughter, b. ME, 11; Hazel Brown, step-dau, b. ME 14 and Ernest Sanborn, lodger.

In 1930 Leonel [Census spelling] and Lucy & family were living in Saint Helens, Columbia Co., OR. All b. ME. Leonel b. ME, married @ 21, mechanic bag factory; Lucy, 34; Leona 16; William 14; Yance 13; Herbert 11 and Maxine 8.

The 1930 Census is the last one viewable to the public at this time. Tracing a family after 1930 is more difficult. I'd suggest you check out Columbia County oregon History and Genealogy,

Lionel Audley Miller d. Multnomah Co., OR 19 April 1991 per death cert 91-07661, age=98; birth=2 May 1892; spouse=Lucy. Source: OR Death Index.

Lionel A. Miller, 542-40-1973, b. 2 May 1892 d. 19 April 1991. His soc. sec. # was assigned in OR before 1951. Source: Social Security Death Index which you can access at no charge.

I'd suggest you get a copy of Lionel's obit which are rich in family info. Hopefully the above web site will provide info on how to get it. Successful Hunting!
