CLEMENTS, MILLER, SCHMIDT posted by Penny Miller on Saturday, January 30, 1999

Hello, I am new to the list and just getting started on my research into these two families from Crawford County. One is the family of Jedidiah Herkanus CLEMENTS, who probably was born in the mid 1800s. His son Earl CLEMENTS was probably born around 1880 and married Julia SCHMIDT. They had 3 daughters, Dorothy (born 1908), Mildred (born 1910) and Lucille (born about 1914). The other family descends from Martin W. MILLER, born 1857, son of Christopher MILLER. The family farm was on Bloominggrove-Crestline Road but some of Martin's children settled in Crestline. I'm looking for information on Martin and on Christopher. If anyone recognizes these names, I'd sure appreciate some help - and happy to share what I have. Penny Miller
