Aurie C. Miller

This is Aurie C. Miller. She was born on October 8, 1864 in Hillsville, Pennsylvania to the late Isaac Rife Miller and Mary Miller. Isaac was the eldest of five children. He was born on June 10, 1834 in New Castle, Pennsylvania. Isaac's family originated from Palatine, Germany in 1725. He and Mary were married on September 22, 1863. Mary Miller, the daughter of J. H. and Elizabeth Miller, was born on September 29, 1841. Isaac died on July 1, 1903 and his wife on November 24, 1928. Together they had three children. The eldest of these three children was our subject, Aurie C. Miller. On February 29, 1888, Aurie C. Miller and George Henley were joyfully married. George was the son of John and Angeline (Brown) Henley and born on October 24, 1864. Together they had five children: Irvin Miller Henley, John Roy Henley, Carl Lumus Henley, Mabel Henley, and Margaret Henley. John Roy was born on December 20, 1891 and died at six months old. Carl Lumus Henley was born on February 8, 1864 and died at age 10 on April 3, 1904. Mabel Henley was born on November 29, 1896 and died at two months old on January 9, 1897. Margaret Henley was born on December 5, 1905 and had died while on a vacation in Florida at age 21 on April 29, 1927. While just 5 years before Margaret had died, George, Aurie's husband, had also passed away. As many were dying around Aurie, she still had her eldest child, Irvin Miller Henley. Irvin was born on September 29, 1889 and was the only child of Aurie and George's to survive to adulthood. Irvin married Jean Elizabeth Rummel on June 10, 1930. However they did not have any children, "Miller" (as many people called him), lived to be 100 years old dying in early 1990 in New Castle, Pennsylvania. The troubles that Aurie had to go through were something that a mother would dread and would be a disaster to most families.
