I am writing a biography of Professor Julius Sumner Miller, and I would like to get in touch with any members of his extended family who have an interest in the family history.
Some information about Julius and his direct family members is listed below.
I would really like to add to what I found or be corrected about any errors in the details.
Please contact me at robgoudey@... or goudeyrob@... .
I would be very happy to hear from you.

Prof Miller’s parents were Samuel Miller (b. 1862, d. 1937) and Sarah (Newmark) Miller (b. 1864, d. 1938). Both migrated from Europe, probably in the 1880s.
