Hello Linda,
It's been a while but I have done a bit more research and believe that I found James and Sarah Mill's daughter Mary A Mills. A post by Betsy Mills on rootsweb lists the obit of James Mills: "Bolivar Bulletin, p. 143 - 31 Jul 1896:
Died, James Mills July 24th at the home of son in law George A. Taylor in the 18th district. Age 81 yrs 10 mos. Mr. Mills was among the earliest settlers of Hardeman County. He arrived with here with his father when only 10 years old. Was one of the 108 Soldiers who left here in 1838 with Gen. Neely to fight the Cherokee Indians.
Hardeman Free Press, p. 7, 31 Jul 1896:
Died, Capt. James Mills, 24 July at the residence of son in law, George A. Taylor in the 18th district, he was 81 years of age and a Methodist."
I researched all of the daughters of James Mills and the only one married to a George Taylor was Fannie Mills Taylor. Her death cert states that she is the dau of James Mills, wife of George Taylor, and that she was b.28 Jan 1847 and d. 24 Apr 1939 in Hardeman Co. She is buried at Concord Cem in Hardeman Co. I imagine that the nickname Fannie might come from a middle name Ann.
Unfortunately, to add to the confusion, Betsy lists a different husband for Mary Mills.
Good luck with your search.
