They roomed together, one of them got TB and died, 6 months later, the other one died from TB. Age of 19. When their mother died as far as I know, Morris (Maurice) said she died in January 1911, and Morris and Russell and Willis went to the Soldiers Home in Davenport, Iowa, for a time. Maurice would never talk about his stay there, how long he was there, or anything."
      "...His Dad [Paul Miller] had a butcher shop at one time on Main Street in Charles City, Iowa. Their house was a couple of blocks south of downtown, up the hill on the right side on a corner lot.
      The home that Maurice's parents lived in in Charles City was destroyed in May of 1968 by a tornado that went through Charles City."

      Cemetery record indicates death date of "1948" and interrment date of 10/2/1948.
