About Susan Emeline Miller (Stephens)
Russell Miller (rmille 9601 at AOL) had carried out a rather extensive investigation on "Susan Emeline Miller" in 1999-2002:
Mon, 9 Aug 1999 Russell Miller
MILLER, Susan Emeline (Stephens) b. July 11, 1830 in Clairborne Co TN died in Moro, Sherman Co., Oregon. Trying to confirm date of May 31, 1897 or 98. She was married to William M. MILLER. One of several children was Ida May MILLER who married Horace M. STRONG June 6, 1892 in Moro, Sherman Co., OR. One son John Isiah MILLER might have lived in Moro and later lived and died in Hood River Co, Oregon. Total children of William and Susan either 7 or 8.

Seeking more information. She married William M. MILLER April 9, 1848 in Bride's Father's Home. She died May 31, 1898 in Moro, Sherman Co., OR. Maybe lived in Lawrence Co. Indiana in 1850's. Also Clay Co. IL, Neosha Co. KS
In 1880 Federal Census Capps Creek, Barry Co., MO a widow with 4 children living with her.
Information on her parents and siblings came from the Toliver family tree of North Carolina:
Carol Ann Page (Tolliver) put together a booklet on her family, which can be downloaded as a PDF.
Kinship for Susan Emeline Stephens was listed on Page 74, and her birth year was listed on Page 157. Other birth years (other than for Margaret Jane, who was married in 1848 to Tobias Tolliver) are listed throughout the Report section beginning on Page 110.
The result of this was:
- Father: Isaiah Stephens b.1800 North Carolina, d. 22 December 1882 Lawrence County Indiana
- Mother: Elizabeth b.1804 Kentucky
- 1. Sarah Ann b. 1824
- 2. Patrick E. b. 1825
- 3 or 4 Susan Emeline b. 1830
- Unk. Margaret Jane m. 14 December 1848 in Lawrence County IN to Tobias Tolliver (b. 15 May 1824 Ashe County NC, d. 31 August 1885 Glenwood MO)
- 5 Louisa b. 1837
- 6. Lucinda b. 1838
- 7. Melinds b. 1841

Ben notes: After first posting this information, written by Carol Page in 2007, I found it was not conclusive, according to a board on Ancestry.com:

HOPE THIS HELPS GRACE
Ben notes: Although Carol Page's Susan Emeline, born 1830, corresponds directly with our Susan Emeline (Emmaline, etc.), and although the second source provides incomplete information that does not confirm or deny the connection (Eveline?), the third source seems to indicate the connection may be doubtful (Mary Emeline Stephens, born 1835).
As a result, I'm removing Susan Emeline's parents and siblings until we can confirm sources.
