Dear Eric,


Here are the names you requested. Thank you for sending the pedigree. It was very helpful. I’m curious. What software do you use? I like the printout format very much.


I have not included names on the selected pages that didn’t match the dates from the pedigree. If you feel they might be related (such as a child of the one I selected) let me know and I will go back and pick them up.


Let me know if there are any questions regarding this report.

Cemeteries of Brown County, IL 1825-1972

Mt. Sterling Catholic Cemetery p. 175, 195: there are others of this family in this cemetery. One, Jacobina Klatz/Klaus you listed below. The Catholic Cemetery covers pages 153-199. If you want to go through the Millers in the index again and send a second request for relevant names within that page range, I will do a second lookup. Since you will not always know marriage names for daughters, I will include them when I find them. There are, of course some family members in other cemeteries. If I notice them, or you know their names, we can extract them as well.


Note that there are two Stephen Miller families in Brown County at about the same time. The other Stephen was born 1821 and his wife was named Tabitha. They are listed on p. 106.


            Stephen Miller (1824-1889)

            Jacobina, w/o Stephen Miller (1830-1905)


Mt. Sterling City Cemetery, p. 228, 260:


            Frank Miller (1869-1933)

            Sarah Miller (1869-1922)

            Thomas S. Miller (d. 31 Jul 1930) IL Pvt 1 cl. 124th Bn 33rd Div.


Illinois Statewide Marriage Index Online: Thomas Miller md. Sarah M. McDannold 26 July 1920, Brown County, IL (Bk2, p, 154, lic #5869). NOTE: the McDannold family is very prominent in Brown county. I tried to find Sarah as a child, but the indexing doesn’t want to cooperate on this surname. “Mc” always gets confused, and ”Dannold” is unusual, although it is the right spelling for this family. We have the microfilm of the 1910 census. If you would like me to make a search for her as a child, let me know. There is no charge.

Hello Laurie,

    My name is Eric S. Bopes (Miller) 3rd great-grandson of Stephen Miller of Brown County born about 1825 in Switzerland. I'm looking for information for the following names that I found on the Brown County Permanent Resident Index which I believed to be my ancestors.

        Miller, Frank            228 (2)

        Miller, Sarah            228

        Miller, Stephen        106,175   

        Miller, Thomas S      228

        Miller, Jacobina        175 (2)

    I have included my Miller ancestry chart with information I know to assist. I am particularly in search of date of death for Stephen Miller and Jacobina. Being the oldest living male in four generations I'm kind of curious as to cause of death if available.


Thank You, Eric
