Obviously, I haven't yet found much on the MILLER family. Any help in locating more on the parents of Reuben B. or his wife Jennie would be most appreciated.
1. Rueben Barkley MILLER.Born abt 1844 in Ohio to unknown parents both born in Ohio. By 1866 he married Jane A. "Jennie" GOWDY, who was born abt 1844 in New Jersey to unknown parents both born in New York. In Aug 1870, the family was living in Piper City, Ford Co., Illinois. At this time their real estate was valued at $3135, and their personal estate at $350. Reuben was working in a Meat Marktet, and Jennie was keeping house. In June 1880, they were in Pella Twp., Ford Co., Illinois, where Reuben was a farmer and Jennie was keeping house.
They had at least four children (possibly more):
A full middle name for Reuben B. is noted in Brady as "Barkley."This information was passed to him by his grandmother, and was found in various family papers. So far, other sources I've found list only a middle initial of "B."
