I can offer some speculation, and it looks like you have really done your homework, so I hesitate to do even that.  

I took a look at the 1850 census (which you have listed in your sources):  ( 

I noticed that it appears that 70-year old Eunice is living in a household without any other adults, with a 2-year-old Alexander and a 4-month-old Arilla Miller.  I assume that they must be grandchildren, or possibly even great-grandchildren to Eunice.

On the next page of the census (and presumably immediately next door) is 41-year-old John Miller (born in Mass.), with (possibly a wife) 24-year-old Mary M. Miller, and two Miller children, one, a 7-year old named Decodatus Miller, which sounds a lot like the Deodatus in your family tree. (Looking at the photocopy of the census page, the name could have been spelled either way). 

John is a possible son of Eunice.  I also spotted, at the bottom of same census page (with John Miller on it), a 4-year old Simon Miller, living in the household of John Mallon, age 40 (born in Ireland) and 31-year old Ann Mallon.  I wonder if Ann Mallon could be a married "Miller" daughter, who is caring for 4-year-old Simon Miller.

Anyway, I just thought I'd mention these clues in case they are helpful in some way.


Thanks Reba! I’m looking it over as every piece Helps! I added the child of Andrew Drayton Miller and his two wives. His first wife died and in the 1880 census shows him and his sons alone. He remarried. Filling in the gaps by adding to the lineage. Some obituaries would be very helpful for any of them. I found the obituaries for Andrew Drayton Miller’s Children: Amos D. Miller  and Jennie (Miller) (Tripp) Church

The children’s obituaries of Amos Miller and Jennie Miller mention father Andrew Drayton Miller as “Amos” and mother Roxy (Allen) Miller and says they had 8 children. So Amos and Jennie had many siblings
