Miller family living in Danville 1860?
Posted by: stephen kondrad (ID *****2090) Date: November 25, 2005 at 07:07:30

I am looking for any information on the family of John Miller, who was a tailor in Danville in 1860. John served in the 6th Reserve Corps in the Civil War. He entered the service in May,1861 and was killed in action near Bethesda Church, Va. on May 30, 1864.

John and his wife Elizabeth were both born in Switzerland.John was born in 1829 and Elizabeth was born in 1834.They had 2 children listed on the 1860 census, Elizabeth 1854 and John 1859.

I am trying to find out where John Miller's wife Elizabeth and their children lived, from 1860 on. The only thing that I do know is that John's wife Elizabeth Miller lived in Plymouth ,Luzerne County in 1890. She is listed as a widow on the 1890 Special Veterans Schedule. I believe that it is possible that John's daughter Elizabeth Miller married my ggg grandfather William Lewis of Plymouth in/around 1872.

I would appreciate any information on John Miller (1860 Danville tailor and Civil War veteran)and his family, including John's place of burial.

Thank You
