My GGG Grandfather William S. Miller - born between 1812-1813 in Pennsylvania . He had two wives .
one unknown with two children - William and Peter .Wife that I know about was Hulda Ann Wells ,daughter of Obadiah Wells and Johanna Downs.
William Miller and Hulda had six children:
Jonathan F. Miller born September 11,1832
Samuel William Miller born June 1,1834
Joseph Edward Miller born July 18,1835
Sarah Miller born 1835 - 1845
Hiram W. Miller born January 28,1838
James Polk Miller born December 18,1846
All these children were born in Rummerfied,Terry Twp.,Bradford County,PA
Hulda died during the birth of James.
I am trying to find the parent of William S. Miller [ nickname was Saul ]
Cannot find anything on the family while living in Bradford Co.,PA
Later in Sullivan Co.,PA -- William was a farmer
I have all Civil War papers
There was a story told at our reunion,that William's grandmother was 102 yrs.at death
and his grandfather died at age 87
I would love to hear from anyone working on this family.
Some of the surnames are O'Connor,Clark,Winder,Axker,Morris,Wells, Brebholtz,Laurenson.,Johnson
I have Samuel William Miller in my tree! I think I even may have a photo of him! I think his father was William S Miller. I have William S Miller in Asylum in 1840 with 5 young boys. I think he was married a second time to an Esther A...I have a William and Esther Miller in 1870 in Tuscarora, Bradford County. But still working on this line-as it so confusing with so many Millers in the area.
How do you descend from William S Miller? Looks like we are cousins! So interested in your civil war papers!

Could be. Esther could be first name of William second wife Jane Black. William's first wife Huldah died in childbirth in 1846 when James P. Miller was born.
William was my GGGGrandfather.
I was wondering if you have sources for William S Miller's marriage with Jane Black, the one that you have 2 sons from? I was trying to find him in the census records. Sue
Suzanne did you see death cert. and photo of Ida Alice Miller and 2nd. husband Milton Laurenson that I added.
Yes, I just looked at the site and saw them. Thank-you. I am scanning some items and sending them now.
This first one is a photo of Sarah Emeretta Miller m. George A Parson. I believe she is Ida Alice Miller's older sister by about 10 years. The back of the photo says they were married on Jan 1 , 1879.
this next one is labeled Sam Miller Will Kilgus. On the back in light pencil is Warren. Labeled Geo. W. Neff Photographer Hughesville, PA on front.
So I think I have decided that the photo is of Samuel Miller Kilgus b 1874 and his father Will R Kilgus b 1854. Taken in Hughesville. PA by photographer Geo W Neff before 1910. The Warren in pencil on the back would have benn the brother to Samuel Miller Kilgus, and son of Will Kilgus.
