I am looking for information on the family of James and Charlotte Muse
who moved from Craven Co, NC to Straunton, Illinois sometime between 1860
and 1876. I have old letters from Charlotte to James in late 1876 before
her death in March 1877. Upon her death, James was informed that she was
buried in the Spangler graveyard. I would like to know if they are in
the 1870 Hancock County Census, if it's possible she has a gravestone in
the cemetery, and any other information about Straunton in this time

Anyone researching or connected to the family of Capt. Thomas
Craig Miller who died in 1905 in Carthage, Illinois? He was married to
Martha Mary Mcculloch and she died in Carthage in 1906. Their son, James
Oliver Miller married Josephine Emily Spangler on Dec 26, 1872 in
Carthage, Illinois.The Spangler family was well know in Carthage. Samuel
Spangler died there in 1875 and his son, William Miller Spangler died
there in 1906.Capt. Miller was in the Civil War and was in charge of the
guard that protected Lincoln's body in Springfield.I think he may have
had a brother in the area and would like to connect with someone who
would like to exchange info. When the Grandmother Spangler died it was
written in the newspaper that relatives were staying with relative
B.F.Miller.However, William Miller Spangler has the middle name of Miller
so it could come from either family. I wish to find out who this
B.F.Miller is if possible. Any help appreciated!! [email protected]
