Thanks for this. I'd found this data, but couldn't be certain that this was the right family. It's so difficult when the surname is a very common one. Sadly, it isn't my Carrie Miller. But I thank you so very much for your efforts. I love the wikitree community...always ready to help!
Great work Frank
