Joseph Ralph Miller DOB 1873

Post by lmschnur » 05 Jun 2016, 06:03

My great-grandfather came to the US via Positano (from disclosure on US Social Security Death Life Claim). His DOB is 4 May 1873. He didn't speak English when he arrived and could only convey "Millano." He was given the name "Miller." I have exhausted as much as I can in Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Family legend was our name was originally "Millano"; however, I doubt this and think he was merely rattling off names of towns. He arrived between 1875-1881. He became a US citizen in 1894.

Thank you so very much!
