Miller and Parker Cousins
Updated December 28, 2005
About Our Family Research
Parker families came from Worcestor Massachusetts, while Miller families from Rockingham Virginia, into the midwest. Mary Clara Parker married James Miller in 1850 Bloomington, McLean County, Illinois. Their daughter Clora Jane Miller became my great grandmother. She smoked a corn cob pipe,and one was made of clay; she learned about making her own medicine from her mother. Family story is that her mother shared medicine with the Indians. Clora's grandchildren spoke of her staying with them after becoming widowed and had no where to live. She spent a few months here and there with each of her children and their families and survived nearly thirty years longer than her husband.
