1940 US Census taken at Woodhull Town, Steuben, NY. Father Lee S. Miller, Sr. was 49 years old at time of the census.

Lee S. Miller, Jr. was 25 at the time of the census, he had a younger sister, Luella who was 12 years old at the time of the census in 1940. She was born in New York. I am thinking that she could have been born in Woodhull Town, Steuben, NY. Lee S. Miller, Jr. was single in 1940.

Yes his name is Lee S. Miller,born about 1915 Woodhall,Steuben New York, his

father was Lee Miller, mother Bernice Luella Mead ( Mead being her maiden name.)

He also had a sister Bernice Luella Miller,she was named after mother.Sometime

between 1930  and 1940 Bernice the mother must have died or they divorced,She

disappears from census records.It is very kind of you to adopt this WW2 man who

died in the Netherlands.And is my pleasure to have helped you with this.If i can

help you further just contact me.
