Notes

  • The first record I found for this person was the 1910 census, when heis living with his own household, next door to his widowed fatherGeorge H Miller and his older single brother Tom.  The name of thehead of household looks like Jeane, which I cannot make sense of as aman's name.

    1910 Federal Census, Arkansas County, Arkansas, 11 May, NorthernPrairie Township, District 12, page 11B, Hse/Fam #208
    Miller, Jeane Head M W 22 Married 5 yrs AR MS AL Farmer Rents
    Miller, May Wife M W 21 Married 5 yrs 3 children/3 living AR MS AL
    Miller, Nettie Dau F W 4 Single AR AR AR
    Miller, James Son M W 2 Single AR AR AR
    Miller, Sadie Dau F W 7mos Single AR AR AR

    George, with son Tom in his hsouehold are living next door to Jeane.

    Miller, Tom Son M W 24 Single OK TX TX Farm Laborer

    This information led to the 1920 census, in which George has beenwrongly transcribed and indexed as George W instead of George H.

    A genealogy found at this point with the extra clues I had, clarifiesthe name.  Jean's full name was Eugene, but his nickname was spelledJean, rather than the common form for a male name, Gene.  In the 1910census, his name is entered as Jeane.

    In Jean's WWII draft registration his wife is called Sallie M Miller.With her lising as May in 1910, this tells us her full name was SarahMay, despite the genealogy above naming her Mary.

    Her name in the 1940 census again uses her nickname, enumerating heras Sallie May.  I have still not found her maiden name as of May 2013.
