BARR posted by Walt Dean on Tuesday, December 7, 1999

Just checked 1895 Populations by Town in Cameron county and 1895 Map page. I found reference in both for town of Miller located in location of Miller Run. It didn't list population of Miller, no Post Office, had railroad station and Express Office. Does anyone know anything about a town of Miller and when it disappeared? Was Miller Run cemetery located at same location? Walt.

ARNDT, CALDWELL, HICKS, MORTON, OLIVETT, SMITH posted by Robert Morton on Friday, December 31, 1999

Back in the 1950's, the First Fork area was moslty obliterated by the instalation of the new dam. The old Gilmore Cemetery was standing in the way of progress. It just so happens that my grandmother, Elizabeth (Caldwell/Coldwell/Colwell) Morton, wife of Abraham Morton, both formerly of First Fork, who was buried along side of her husband Abraham, was lost and NEVER accounted for.
My gr. gr. grandfather Abraham Morton, Civil War Veteran, is buried in the new Gilmore Cemetery, but his wife Elizabeth Caldwell Morton is not anywhere.
I have not connected with any Caldwells who may be related to Elizabeth. Elizabeth's parents may have been Hugh and Mary Colwell, as listed on the 1870 census of Grove Twp. Are you out there?
