Katharina Elizabeth Becker

Birth 17 FEB 1866 in a Volga colony, Saratov Province, Russia
Death 14 JUL 1930 in Selman Oklahoma, USA
Carl Henry Miller
Birth 1864 in Volga, Saratov, Russia (I don't know the village where he came from but you may get it from a passenger list to the USA.  Many colonists moved from village to village, but the passenger list will usually give the last one.)
Marriage:  26 Mar 1887, Selman Oklahoma, so they might not have come from the same village in Russia or even known each other there.
Carl probably was named something similar to Carl Heinrich Mueller (most common spelling of "Miller" among the German-Russians) or Muller in Russia, and changed it to Henry Miller when coming to the USA.
Her parents were: Johann Georg Becker, Sr.  1845 – 1900
            Christina Elizabeth Herdt  1845 – 1919
Johann George Becker, Sr. also came to the USA, so you might check the passenger lists for his family.
Birth 05 MAR 1845 in Tscherbakowka, Saratov, Volga, Russia
Death 10 MAR 1900 in Hillsboro, Marion, Kansas, USA
Check also U.S. Find-A-Grave Indexes or Oklahoma Find-A-Grave Index, etc.
(Johann usually becomes "John" in the USA.)
