Am listing below all that I have on your Phebe Luzader Miller Thomas at this time.
------------ CHRONOLOGY -------------- 1842- WV- (birth estimate: "b. VA, 8 yrs") [1850 CENS] 1850-07-22 WV-Gilmer-17th Dist (enum. w/parents) [CENS: 5] 1859-07-28 WV-Gilmer (m1 to Andrew Miller) [*Cochran/p.7] 1860-05 WV- (birth of son Sida Preston) [CENS: 977] 1860-07-09 WV-Gilmer (enum. w/husband and son) [CENS: 977] 1866-06-30 WV-Taylor (m2 to Dr. A. Thomas) [**MR: Bk 0/ 66]
* Marriage record lists Phebe as being "18y and b. Lewis County." GILMER COUNTY, WEST VIRGINIA, MARRIAGES, 1845-1933, by Wes Cochran, 1989.
** Marriage record lists "Michael and Rachel Luzader, parents" of Phebe Miller.
It is possible that Phebe may have died before the probate of her father's estate. She was not listed as heir (nor were her sons) in an abstract compilation of her father's probate found in LDS FHL film 464933. Deeds and probate records of Calhoun Co. WV should be searched. It is possible the sons of your Phebe were mentioned as heirs. I have been unable to determine the parentage of Micah Luzader. Some think he may have been the son of one of the three unmarried daughters of Aaron and Sarah Cole Luzader. Others believe his father may have been Moses (son of Aaron and Sarah) since Moses was listed as bondsman on the marriage license of Micah and wife Rachel Wiseman. Another thought would be that he may have been the son of Margaret Luzader Czigan (my husband's ancestor). She had two children named Mary Cole, b. 1819 WV, and Thomas Cole b. 1822 (with a man other than her husband John Czigan). Information about these children was obtained from Deeds pertaining to the settlement of the estates of John Czigan as well as Margaret's father Aaron. Unfortunately, Micah was not mentioned as heir in either estate settlement. Please let me know if you have any information that will give information on the parentage of Micah.
