I was married to John Thomas Miller. We lived in Urbana MO but his Grandfather was Frank I beleive. I know his middle name was Benjamin (he was called Red Miller)and he had a sister named Beulah poindexter. Lewis Alexander Miller is buried at Mission Ridge Cenetery outside of Urbana MO. There is a plaque for him as one of the last surviving Civil War veterans.
