My Genealogy Hound

Below is a family biography from the book, History of Kentucky, Edition 8a by J. H. Battle, W. H. Perrin and G. C. Kniffin and published by F. A. Battey Publishing Company in 1888.  These biographies are valuable for genealogy research in discovering missing ancestors or filling in the details of a family tree. Family biographies often include far more information than can be found in a census record or obituary.  Details will vary with each biography but will often include the date and place of birth, parent names including mothers' maiden name, name of wife including maiden name, her parents' names, name of children (including spouses if married), former places of residence, occupation details, military service, church and social organization affiliations, and more.  There are often ancestry details included that cannot be found in any other type of genealogical record.

FRANCIS M. MILLER was born in Shelby County, Ky., February 19, 1834, and is a son of Fleming and Susan (Holloway) Miller, natives of Virginia. He was brought up on the farm and received such an education as could be obtained in the public schools of that county. Upon attaining his majority he came to Bullitt County, and after remaining here a few years he removed to Illinois and settled in Christian County, but a few years later he returned to Kentucky, and located upon the same farm that he left on going to Illinois, convinced him that Kentucky is the best State in the Union after all. Mr. Miller was married in December, 1862, to Miss Mary, Jane Miller, born December 10, 1843, and a daughter of James H. and Louisa Miller. They have one child, born February 16, 1864.
