RESEARCHING:

Christopher MILLER (b/ 20 Jun 1840, Bern, Switzerland) - d. 25 Aug 1907, Cook, IL) & family. Married Mary CARNEY. Children: Anna, John, Margarite, and Edward. Lived on Sect. 36, Montmorency Twp., Whiteside Co., (bordered County Line Rd./Harmon, Lee Co.). The property is now owned by B. Atchison. Miller daughter lives around the corner on County Line Rd. (I have his obit from Sterling Gazette. Does not give parents' names or POB). Went back to home and found owners home. Christopher Miller was her gr-grandfather! I have connected her with Mr. Cox in California. He is the great, great, grandson of Christopher Miller. Goal: Identify the ancestral town where they were born in Switzerland; and identify the name of Christopher's parents. We are still seeking living descendants that may help to provide that information. Please contact me at tampicohistoricalsociety@gmail.com or call me at 815-590-2143.
