JACOB MILLER FAMILY

        Fritts/Alsever/Dence/Chaffee and more...

Many thanks to Eric Schultz for submitting this information.  Eric says, "I am researching one of the many Miller families in Oswego and Onondaga Counties.  I  recently found the following two articles in the Syracuse Herald.  The first article is dated 28 June 1918 and the obituary is dated 29 April 1935.  I have a little information on some of the names mentioned, but have not yet been able to identify all of the people attending the reunion.  If anyone is researching any of these names I would be interested in hearing more and exchanging information."  Thanks, Eric.  eric.schultz@iname.com.

Here is an obituary I found from the Syracuse Herald, dated 29 April 1935.  I am sure it refers to D. R. Fritts, who was in attendance at the Miller reunion.
