Pictured above, Anna Maria Stuber Miller with her granddaughters Clarice & Edna. I am working on verifying the dates and locations of the photos.

From Ancestry.com -

Stuber siblings of this generation, except for the youngest, Jacob, emigrated to America in 1853. (Note: that means Anna Maria was 15 when she emigrated!)

Anna Maria first married Charles Herr in 1857 and had two sons, Carl Walter, born February 14, 1858, and George William, born January 23, 1860. Carl died at six weeks and George at 6 months of age. Both were born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Charles Herr was killed in the Civil war. You can read a translation of a letter from Charles to Anna, download here.

You can also see a translation of a letter (or possibly a mix of two letters) Anna Maria received from back home, download here.

Johann Gottlieb Mueller

Johann Gottlieb Mueller
My 3rd Great Grandfather

Born: 23 June 1825 in Saxony, Germany
Died: 4 October 1896 in Buffalo, Nebraska

Father: Johann Adam Mueller
Mother: Maria Christiana Schreiter

Wife: Anna Maria Stuber
Children: Oscar Ludwig Miller

Johann Gottlieb Mueller

Although he never became fluent in English, upon settling in the United States, Johann Gottlieb Mueller anglicized his name to John George Miller.

This photo shows Johann/John with his second wife, Mary, not my ancestor. I am descended from his third wife, Anna.

Notes found on Ancestry.com -

According to notes by Josephine Schwab Miller, John G. Miller (originally named Mueller) grew up in Prussia, though born in Saxony. He first married a woman whose name is unknown, and had one son, Ludwig Oscar Mueller, born near `Bitterfield, Prussia`, who died at nine months of age.

This couple immigrated to America in a sailing vessel, taking 90 days. The wife `took cholera`, was homesick and died before arrangements could be made to return to Germany. John G. Miller `finally landed in Michigan`. He then married Mary Lohrer, with whom he had 5 children. His third wife was the widow Anna Maria Stuber, whose first husband, Charles Herr, was killed in the Civil War. Five children were born to this marriage. The family farm where most of the 13 children grew up is still in Clay Center, Nebraska.

Additional notes in the Miller Family book by Sandy Davis quote a granddaughter, Enid Miller VanLuven Nicodemus: “John George Miller migrated from Germany and settled in Flint, Michigan. …His wife and the baby Oscar got the Black Plague and both died. The Health Authorities came and took the bodies and buried them in Potter`s Field. Grandfather never saw their graves. He was at a disadvantage because he couldn`t speak English. Grandfather later married Anna Maria Stuber. When their first child was born, he looked so much like the baby Oscar that died, that the new baby was named Oscar Ludwig, my father.”
