Katherine, we are related. I first messaged you back about this time last year. I have since been researching more of the Miller side and am just getting back to the message boards. My aunt was Zelda Miller born to Horace Miller and Elisa Pearman. My father was Zelda's brother. Elisa's sister married Tom Burton and the homesteaded very close to Horace and James (Buck) Bucanan near Seneca Neb. Your statement regarding the Native American connection is the first I have heard so can not verify or denie.I do not have time tonight, but will put the family tree together that I have and E-mail you tomarrow or the next day. I hope to travel to the area of the homestads in Neb. sometime in the month of March. Organize any birth, death, or marriage information you might want from there and I will see what I can find. I have to warn you that much of the information I have is in typed records from a Pearman relative in Cali. and I have not had time to verify most of it.I do have copies of the Cherry co. Neb. Land patents for James Bucanan and Horace Miller from around 1914. Also 1919 land plat map copies of their ranches and of Tom Burton's ranch. Have to go now, but will get back to you very, very shortly.
