I am looking for the first name of a person named Miller, who
had a daughter named Helen, born 1903, and a wife named
Mabel. Since the 1910 census is indexed only for head of
household, I need the first name of this person.

"Grave Records From Henry County, IA". The transcriptions were done about 1929.
However, the Washington County, IA website (www.rootsweb.com/~iawashin/)
indicates Beauchamp Cemetery is actually located in Section 36, Crawford Twp,
Washington County, IA. This would place the cemetery to the north of Wayne Twp,
Henry County, IA, just across the Henry/Washington County Line.
