This is the obit for Bessie Millner

Just needed to add this to see if anyone out there can help. Bessie's husband was Robert L. Millner b. OH February 25, 1926, and died September 15, 1993, Logan County OH. In the 1930 Census for Bellefontaine City, Logan County OH, Robert is listed as living with his maternal grandparents Chester and Cora E. Wilder , Chester---
head of household---
age at marriage 28---
owns home,
born OH as are his parents lists a son
age 30--
married at age 21-- (no wife listed)
laborer for steam railroad. Also listed with Chester and his family are
Milner Harold, son in law--
age 23,
married at age 18,
laborer with steam railroad--
Opal (Harold's wife)
daughter age 22,
married at age 17--
grandson--age 4.
Do know per the 1910 Census Cora's parents are John and Sarah Squibb.
1920 Census for Greene County Ohio "Ohio Soldiers and Sailors Home", lists
Millner, John M. inmate
age 15;
Harold L. inmate
age 13.
then Milner Harrietta M. inmate age 10;
Robert B. inmate, age 8. don't know if these are related to John and Harold.
1930 census for Bellefontaine City Logan County OH
Millner, John M. head
age 25
age married 21
occupation-- chauffer
industry-- automobile
Lillian E. wife
age 26
age married 21
Jessie M. son 3 1/2
Jackie D. son 2 1/2
another son age 1 can't make out the name could be Franklin.
I hope to meet with Bessie's daughter soon, but feel a brick wall since both Robert's father and uncle were raised in the childrens home. Hope I haven't confused anyone. Can anyone help or let me know how to go about finding information in orphanses.
