Re: Rudolph - 1775 - Switzerland to Pennsylvania
My grandmother was Bertha Elizabeth Miller and her parents were John G. & Eliza (Neiderhiser) Miller.John & Eliza had five sons - Theodore, Elwood, Orville, Wade and Gilbert, and two daughters - Bertha Elizabeth (my grandmother) and Mazie (who was first married to a Diebold and last married to Art Barnard - She died in Euclid, OH in 2002).Eliza's parents were Samuel & Harriet (Faust) Neiderhiser.From a 1920 census I see that my grandmother did not live with her parents, but with her grandparents, Samuel & Harriet Neiderhiser - I can't figure out why that was.
As far as the Millers, I was able to find out that Samuel & Harriet were involved in a sledding accident and escaped with their lives, however, 3 children (not related) were killed.Through this posted article entitled "Memorial in the Woods" I contacted the Somerset Historical Society and asked who contributed that article last year.Dawne Temple emailed me and said she was the contributor.Through Dawne's great research, we have determined that her husband, Jerry Temple, and I are relatives!!
So, do I have any cousins that you know of that I can contact??
