I do not know if this will be of any help to you or not, but a large
contingent of Miller families and others migrated from Missouri (Maries,
Osage, Pulaski counties etc) about 1880 and settled in Commanche, Brown,
Haskell and probably Erath counties at that time........ If you will post a
query to the MARIES-L(a)rootsweb.com website, there are a lot of Miller
descendents who will respond to queries of Millers of Missouri as well as
those in Texas and some of them live in the counties you mentioned in
Texas..... they have helped me tremendously. , as my ggrandfather Miller
settled in Commanche and gg grandfather Miller in Haskell. counties ....If
it indeed turns out that your father is related to the Millers in Maries Co.
Missouri and in Texas, then you are in for a real treat as there is alot of
information about this family available.....These Millers are of German
descent and the ancestor is George Miller b. abt 1750. I cannot relate to
your Ike Miller...... Good Luck.......M.Kalapus

Subject: [ERATH] Re: Searching for information on Fred McKinley MILLER
I have recently subscribed to this list. I waited until my schedule slowed
before asking for your help.
I just got my father Fred McKinley MILLER's social security application.
It states he was born in Dublin, Erath County, Texas 2 Nov 1896.
His parents are listed as Ike MILLER and Laura STONE. I know Laura STONE
b. 24 Jul 1873 in Comanche Co. Texas and
is the daughter of Andrew Larkin STONE and Elba E. Jones who were married
Nov 1865 in Comanache Co. Texas.
Laura Bama STONE married J.L. 'Ike' MILLER 11 Jun 1889.
I was surprised to see Fred was born in Dublin, Erath County, this was the
first link to your county I have found.
I hope someone can help me with my ancestors. The MILLER side is my brick
Thank you in advance for any help you can give.
