Conrad William Miller
Konrad Wilhelm Müller (Conrad William Miller) was born in Norka. The Descendant Chart prepared by Igor Pleve says his date of birth was June 19, 1867, but he believed that his birth date was May 27, 1866. He immigrated to the United States in 1876 with his parents and eight brothers and sisters. His father, Johannes Mueller (John "R" Miller) was a descendent of original Norka colonist Ernst Mueller. Conrad lived in Illinois, Nebraska and Kansas before settling in Oklahoma after participating in the 1892 Land Run for the Cheyenne and Arapaho territory. Conrad's wife, Mary Katherine Lorenz, was also a Volga German, born in the Alt-Messer colony. They were married in Ramona, Kansas in 1888.
The photograph above shows the family of my great-grandfather, Conrad William Miller (Mueller). From left to right they are: Eugene Henry Miller (my grandfather), Priscilla Mary Miller, Uriah Conrad Miller, Conrad William Miller (my great-grandfather), Senora Josephine Miller, Cicero Thompson Jeter (husband of Dorothea Emma), Mary Katherine (Lorenz) Miller, Dorothea Emma (Miller) Jeter, Alonzo Richard Miller and Palmer John Miller. The picture was taken about 1908, probably in either Keene, Texas, or Waurika, Oklahoma.
