I have a Hannah Jones in my Miller tree. Also an
Amanda, but I think she was Hannah's mother or aunt? I
think Jones was Hannah's married name.
Some of my Miller's are missing in action and very
frustrating. Mine were born near the border of
Missouri and one of the other states. Could be
Peter Miller was my gg grandfather, census says he
was from Prussia. He married Dorthula Gibbony in 1865
in one of the border cities in Missouri. The 1870
census says his first son,Thomas Herbert Miller was
born in Ind. However, they were in Mo. on the
census.In 1872 my g grandmother Lottie was born and by
1880 she and her brother were orphans living in two
different Mo. counties with friends of the father.
Their mother was dead and the father, Peter Miller
said he was returning to Germany. I know that he did
not. He is on the census by himself after that until
1900. Somehow Lottie ended up in a house full of other
Millers in Madison Co. Mo. in 1890. There are no
census records for then. She married her neighbor
George Moore. Letters from his family speak of her
living in the house with the other Millers. By 1900
she and her new husband are in Mississippi Co. Mo with
her brother, Thomas H. Miller. They had to have had a
way to communicate and find each other. On the 1900
census in that house full of Millers in Madison Co.
Mo. are Hannah Jones, Amanda Miller, George
Miller,Catherine and more. It was a boarding house.
On a recording that one of my Moore ancestors left
before he died at age 94, he described town history
that he recalled. He mentioned that Amanda
Miller(widowed) and her drunken brother Dodie who
lived in a little house behind her. That is all I know
of my Millers, but thought I would relate it to you
since you also mentioned two names that I had. It
would be great if we made a connection but I have
almost given up hope. Oh, Thomas Herbert Miller and
wife Clara moved to Detroit at some point. They had
five kids in the 1920s.
