Notes

  • 1850 Federal Census, Arkansas County, Arkansas, 12 November, PrairieTownship, page 30-31, Hse/Fam #15

    Nancy Miller 45 F House Keeper  b Alabama
    John Wm (William) Miller 17 M Farm Laborer b Mississippi

    Note that John is 11 in 1850 (born about 1839), then in 1860 he hasaged only 6 years to 17 (born about 1843).  The 1900 census reportshis birth date as December 1844.  If this is correct, then theenumerator or his parents confusedly reported an actual 6-year old asan 11-year old 1850.  Hard to figure.  In 1880 he is 38, making birthabout 1842.  The first age given in 1850 is way off compared to theothers.

    1870 Federal Census, Arkansas County, Arkansas, 18 July, PrairieTownship, PO St Charles, page 18, Hse/Fam #151

    Miller, Jane (Jennie) 3 F W born Arkansas
    Miller, Mary A 9 months born Aug 1869 F W born Arkansas
    Dillard, Thomas 22 Laborer on Farm b Mississippi

    The Carcy here is Carson Wallace (Wallis), Mary's with from her firsthusband.  Note that Mary's birth place is reported as Louisiana.  Thisis a puzzle, since all other sources report her born in New York.  Butthis is obviously the same person, since her son Carcy (Carson) isreported here, consistent with the 1880 report.

    1880 Federal census, Arkansas County, Arkansas lists this family.  Allthe children of John W and Mary were born in Arkansas.

    1880 Federal Census, Arkansas County, Arkansas, 2 June, PrairieTownship, page 21 (scan p15C), Hse #21, Fam #25

    Josephine Miller  W F Dau  9 AR MS NY
    Willie Miller  W M 7 Son  AR MS NY
    Ellen Miller  W F 5 Dau  AR MS NY

    The name Tannie is a mistranscription from the handwritten censusinformation, for the correct name Fannie.  This is in line with manyother typos in the LDS online version of the 1880 census.

    Likewise there is an error in the transcription of the childJosephine, which is clearly readable, though slightly faded.  Thecensus transcription names this child Joesy [actual spelling].  It isinteresting that they have substituted a nickname, when the actualentry is readable as Josephine.  These same errors occur in theAncestry.com information, since they have taken the 1880 censustranscription of the LDS library.

    The report of Carson Wallace as a stepson of John W Miller indicatesthat Mary Wallis Miller was previously married to someone namedWallace.  (This is probably only another spelling for Wallis.)  TheMiller genealogy reports that John and Mary married in 1865, soCarson's birth in about 1863 would indicate that John was not hisfather.  John and Mary got married in the home of Mrs Sarah Wallis.This, then, must be Mary's mother-in-law from her first marriage.  Asof October 2008, I do not have further information about theWallis/Wallace family.

    Two children, Lucy and Kelly (Callie), reported by Bertie L McSwain,were born after this census and first reported in 1900 with John.Their mother is still living at this time, but not with her husbandJohn.  Mary is living in her own house, alone, a few doors down.  Bothare reported as widowed.  Callie is only 17 but already widowed, witha 2-year-old son.

    The 1910 census records for John and Mary are very interesting.  J WMiller is listed as head of the household with his unmarried children,of whom Jennie is the oldest.  He is a widower.  However, his wifeMary is listed below, two houses away with their daughter JosephineAlmond!  Mary is reported as Divorced.
