In researching the family history to obtain membership in the DAR for our daughter, we kept coming up with a bunch of notorious incidents in the family tree. Apparently my great grandfather’s brother was a notorious assasin who was hanged. My great grandfather disappeared and when I asked my great gransmother what happened to him she just said, “he died”. However, we can not find out where or when. Perhaps he was with his brother on one of his “jobs” and was shot and killed…otherwise, why can we find no record of his death? The story in many books is slightly off, because JAmes B Miller did not kill his parents, but did kill his brother-in-law. We have personal documents, including Lucy fosters marriage certificate to Andrew Barret Miller (James’s brother).
