Aldus B. Miller
Oct. 10, 1861 - Jan. 4, 1914
Annie E. Miller
Sept. 6, 1863 - Sept. 16, 1916
Aldus and Annie Miller are buried at the Clearfield United Methodist Church Cemetery in Smithville, Lancaster County, PA. They do not yet fit into our Millers but how could I resist taking a photo while I was there, right?
Noticing the flag next to the grave, I hopped on Ancestry.com and went in search for Aldus Miller. I did not find anything military related but I did find the Millers a few places.
The 1900 US Census shows 38 year old Aldus and 36 year old Annie with their children: 15 year old Charles L. (b. Oct. 1884), seven year old Lydia E. (b. Dec. 1892), four year old Clarence P. (b. July 1895), and two year old Benjamin D. (b. May 1898) Miller. The Millers had been married for 17 years and were living in Martic Township, Lancaster County, PA. Aldus listed his occupation as farm laborer. Annie is shown to have had seven children with only five surviving in 1900. Everyone was born in Pennsylvania. Annie and Aldus also both listed their parents' birthplace as being Pennsylvania as well.
The 1910 Census lists Aldus, Annie, 17 year old Lydia, 14 year old Clarence P., 12 year old Benjamin as well as nine year old Walter H., six year old Anna L., and three year old Chester S. Miller. Aldus lists his occupation as a watchman for the railroad. Two doors down is a Charles Miller age 25. While I am not certain it is their oldest son, it does seem to fit. Charles has been married to 21 year old Emma for two years. They have one child - a newborn Anna May. Charles also works for the railroad.
Aldus may be the some of Peter and Mary Gochenaur Miller but I have not yet confirmed this. Not all the information fits perfectly and therefore still needs confirmation.
