Jody also gave this information from Ellis Island:The Muller/Miller family "Joining Peter Unterriener in Pittsburg, PA" I notice on the 1910 Census for Wilkins, Allegheny, PA (copy of)that there is a Peter Hemmerler (and wife, Fernonica) and family living next door.They list their birthplaces as: Ger German.Could this be the one?
The Millers that I have contact with are not aware of any more back from Valentine and Anna.So this will be so great to continue to add to for them and myself.
