Obit for Sarah (Miller) Brown:
Sarah Miller was born in Columbia County, Penn., August 21, 1819. She was one of a family of thirteen children, all of whom have passed away except one sister, who still lives at the age of eighty-one years.
Miss Miller was married to Daniel Brown in the year 1839. Six children have been born to them, four of them have died. Her husband also was taken, his death occurring in 1854. Two sons, Ezra Brown of Fairbury Neb., and George M. Brown of Memphis, now mourn the loss of an affectionate mother. But their mourning is turned into the joys of the redeemed by the consolation of the Gospel of our Christ, which to her was the power of God unto salvation.
Her home was in Pennsylvania until the year 1881, when she came to Missouri and ever since has made her home with her son George in Memphis. Grandma Brown, as she was familiarly known was a true type of woman. Her heart was in every good cause, although she remained a member of the church of her youth, yet she took an active interest in the work of the Methodist Episcopal Church. By her spirit of kindness she won the esteem and love of all who knew her. Her life was fully lived. On Tuesday morning May 8, 1906 at half past nine o'clock, she peacefully passed to the "Rest that remaineth to the people of God." Her age was 86 years, 8 months and 17 days.

History Of Carbon County
Miller, George W., one of Weatherly's oldest and
best known merchants, the son of George and Eve
(Kocher) Miller, was born in Maine township, Colum-
bia county. Pa., on December 15, 1844. His grand-
father, Henry Miller, was a farmer, following that oc-
cupation first in Berks county and later in Columbia.
The farm which he owned in the latter county is still
in possession of his descendants. His son, George,
the father of the subject of this notice, who was also a
farmer, was born in 1803. He became the father of
sixteen children, and he served for three terms as a
member of the board of commissioners of Columbia
I think that this George may be a sibling of Charity and Sarah Miller - which would make Henry their father. Not sure yet - but it's a lead.
