|Penny Harris||Cora Vivian Kincaid Miller|
Olen & Cora's marriage record lists her as born in Summers County, but the birth may not have been reported. The marriage record lists her parents as JD & SM Kincaid.
It looks to me like this was probably Jim & Sarah Kincaid. Jim was James Mathew & Sarah was actually Sarah Ellen Dean, but is always listed as Sarah M on her children's birth records, and Jim is always listed as JD. They wed in 1873 in Summers County & are buried at the Elk Knob Cemetery in Summers county. Jim's will probated in December 1954 leaves everything to his granddaughter Lucille & her husband Russell Burdette.
They had daughters Dora E born in 1875, Leona Bell in 1883, Lula P in 1890, Orpha I in 1892. I don't see any others listed, but it could be they just weren't reported (note the 1875-1883 and 1883-1890 gaps).
Hopefully this will give you something to work with.
|Penny Harris||more on Penn Miller|
His parents were William & Jane Miller. They lived at Blue Sulphur Spgs in Greenbrier County during the 1870 Census. Penn was 15. They also had two daughters, but their names are a mess on the record. Looks like one was Sarah Jane "Sary Jane" age 13 & the younger was "Pisalela" age 12.
I may have William & Jane or their relatives in my tree. Of course there were lots of Williams & Janes back then. I'll let you know if I find anything more on them.
|Penny Harris||Pembroke Miller|
I found where a Pembroke M. Miller married Matilda C. Harris in Summers County in 1892. Looks like she was his second wife. The 1900 Census shows they were both 45 years old, living at Green Sulphur Springs in Summers County, had been married 7 years & had 5 children including 19 year old Olen, 17 year old Mary E, 14 year old Charles E, 12 year old Thornton A, 6 year old Walter H, and 1 year old Homer H.
There is a misprint on Thornton's age in that census record. It lists him as born in 1888, but being 112 years old. So I got to looking closer, and his birth record indicates he was the son of Penn & Sarah F Miller, born June 18, 1888 in Alderson, WV. His birth record & draft card from WWI list middle initial as E & F-A-G memorial #33024373 lists middle name as Embury. He died in Tampa, Florida in 1980, but he is buried at Barboursville, WV.

Wow, thanks! I think this guy could be a distant cousin of mine. I'm related to some Millers & Fosters that lived in that area in the 1800s.
