I need all information on James Stewart Miller b. abt. 1825 and wife Nancy Davis. They lived in Alexander County Illinois but may have been born elsewhere. Possibly Virginia, North Carolina or South Carolina. They are listed somewhere with children but I can't locate it. James Stewart Miller may have served the Union in the Civil War Co. B, 29 Illinois Infantry. I found the Civil War information in Twente Crossing Cemetery in Alexander County Illinois but can't be sure it's the same James Stewart Miller.

    Hi Betty,
