RE: 69077672

I do not know if the Morgan Co. family is related...
I do know Nancy came to Wisconsin as her brother
had a farm in Crawford County, (that my aunt and uncle owned and I spent time as a child on). Nancy apparently divorced Reuben (Madison?) Miller...
(Perry Co. Ohio) or at least they parted ways and he ended up with another wife...Nancy brought her three children by Miller with her along with the two Kinder Children.

Vernon County is just north of Crawford was previously called Bad Axe Co. so you may find some info there...

Nancy also remarried / Seymour Taft and they ran a grocery store in Mt. Zion Wisconsin grandparents lived next door to that building (called Hulbert Hall by the local church that bought the building) I knew that building well as a child.

You are most welcome on the photo. My husband has quite a few family buried at Beard Cemetery so we tried to photo most everyone while we were there. (It is a difficult cemetery to find. Depending on weather, it can be a rough route up!)
