Thank you so very much for your help. Now at least we know where he is buried. I'm surprised Ruth died so young. I wonder what from. I thought maybe she remarried. My grandfather, William Miller, was cremated and so I figured if I could find his wife I could find where he is buried. Williams middle name was actually Clarence, but my mother said at some point, and she didn't know why, he changed it to Albert. And yes, he was born on April 1, 1919 and died on June 17, 1968. He collapsed at work of a massive heart attack, in New Kensington which is right outside of Pittsburgh. He and Ruth lived in Pittsburgh. My mother was the result of Williams first marriage. My mom never really had much of a relationship with him, and actually didn't see him in the 9 years previous to his death. She did go to the funeral home when he died, although she was never listed in his obit. Thats when she found out about having a half brother, William Robert Miller. He was serving in Vietnam at the time of their fathers death. My mother said she found out that Wm was never married to his mother. But my mother knew who his mother was and had actually met her at some point. I'm trying to find out if William Robert is still alive somewhere. Do you know if Ruths obit listed any children? My mother said she thought she had two sons from a previous marriage. Any help you can provide would be appreciated. And thanks again so very much. -Wendy Henderson
