    Notes 
    • 1871 census: at Bulls Head Yard, Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, (all MILLER), George (27, ag lab, born Harborough, Lincs), Ann (24, born Messingham), Eliza Ann (2, born Gainsborough) and George Henry (9 months, born Gainsborough).

      1881 census: The Common, Waddingham Lincs: George SIMPSON * (head, 43, farmer of 54 acres, born Waddingham), Margaret SIMPSON (wife, 45, born Spittal, Lincs), Willian Vickers SIMPSON (son, 5, born Waddingham), James PARKINSON (servant, 17, farm servant in-door, born South Kelsey, Lincs), Ann MILLER (visitor, married, 34, coal miner wife, born Messingham), Eliza Ann MILLER (Ann's daughter, 12, born Gainsbro), Albert Earnest MILLER (Ann's son, 6, born Wombwell, Yorkshire), Eva Kate MILLER (2, born Wombwell) and Walter Edwin MILLER (Ann's son, 5 months, born Wombwell).

      * George SIMPSON may have been the son of John & Sarah Simpson. John SIMPSON was born about 1814 in Crosby, Lincs (per the 1841 census) and could have been the brother of Ann's mother Mary Simpson, who was born about 1817, also in Crosby.

      According to the 1900 US Federal Census, George emigrated to America in 1880 and was joined there in 1881 by his family.
      Ancestry.com in its New York, Passenger Lists, 1820-1957 has the following:
      Arrived on 7 December 1880 at New York from Liverpool, the 'City of New York' - passenger list includes (on successive lines):
      George MILLER, 35, machinist(?)
      George MILLER, 9, child
      Henry HUNSLEY, 27, laborer. Henry was George's brother-in-law.
      I haven't found a shipping record for Ann and her other two children.

      1900 US Federal Census: in Justice Precinct 8, Harris, Texas (all MILLER), G T (head, born Sep 1844, age 55, married 33 years, born England, immigated to US in 1880, farmer), Ann (wife, born Nov 1842, age 57, married 33 years, 7 children all living, born England, immigated to US in 1881), Walter (son, born Nov 1880, age 19, born England, immigated to US in 1881, farmer), Bertha (daughter, born Nov 1883, age 16, born Illinois), Oliver (son, born Apr 1886, age 14, born Illinois, at school).

      Although there are several discrepancies between it and the 1900 version, the following probably refers to George:
      1910 US Federal Census: in Justice Precinct 8, Harris Texas (both MILLER), J T (head, 64, married 38 years, born England, immigrated to US 1888, merchant, general store) and Ann (wife, 62, married 38 years, 7 children all living, born England, immigrated to US 1889).

      The Miller family's story is in 'Cisco, Illinois, 1874 - 1974', which can be seen at www.archive.org.
