20) Although no record was found in

the IA Death Index for Pottawattamie,

Co, IA 1880-1919, I was able to locate

an obit for him; The Blair Pilot, (Blair, NE),

dated 17 May 1897 "Pioneer, Bethuel Miller,

who was buried in the Ft. Calhoun

Cemetery today, was over eighty five

years old. He was born in Vermont and

emigrated in an early day to Nauvau, Il,

and afterwards to Macomb. He left Macomb

for Iowa in 1853 and was among the early

settlers at Kanesville (Council Bluffs), and

Ft. Calhoun after spending two years in

Salt Lake City. He opened the first Ft.

Calhoun brick-yard on the site of old Ft.

Atkinson that was opened after the

abandonment of the fort. He was married

several times and leaves several children that

are now widely scattered, but has for several

years lived here with his youngest son,

David, on old Fort Grounds. The services

were conducted by Rev. Parker. Three of

his sons came for the funeral; Cornelius,

of Cresent City, Iowa, and Joseph and

William, of council Bluffs, IA."

21) Although I don't have many details

(such as whose baby this is, I found the

following at the Washington County Gen.

Soc. and will record it here as I read it;

Hopefuly another researcher will be able

to connect this child to it's rightful

parents. "Bethuel Miller, of Irvington=

6 months baby + on 6th month day,

= buried Ft. Calhoun, beside it's

grandfather." NOTE: The Mormon

records state Bethuel was born

in Lincoln, VT and mar: VT
