I have found information from Cheryl Sears that Samuel Dudley Boosinger's Mother( Eleanor Fowler Blake-Boosinger) and Robert Miller Sr.'s wife Lydia Jane Blake-Miller were sisters. Robert Miller and Lydia Jane Blake were married in Illinois- Robert Miller went off to the Civil War and got discharged early as he had tuberculosis.When Robert Miller tried to get his Civil War pension, he was denied a few times, so evidently family and friends wrote letters to the Pension board to help Robert and Lydia get the pension. In those papers I have found letters from Mr. W.J. Parman and Mr. Dudley Boosinger. Dudley Boosinger was Lydia and Robert Miller Sr.'s nephew. I have a scanner and would gladly scan those documents for you if you would like. It mentions that Mr. W.J. Parman lived in the Dakota Territory for awhile, but he must of moved back to Missouri as another letter was written by both W.J. Parman and Dudley Boosinger and it is from Missouri.Robert Miller was on the move most of the time from the Civil War till the time he died- His doctors in Illinois had told him to keep moving until he found an area that was easier for him to breathe.It had to of been a very rough life for these folks-Robert Miller Jr. married Susan Corder in Johnson county, Missouri and they had two sons together - Robert Jr. died before his Father Robert Sr. and I believe he also died of tuberculosis as a Fargo North Dakota 1885 census shows Robert Jr. as having weak lungs.I am not sure where Robert Jr. and his Mother Lydia Jane Blake Miller are buried- Would you know where Dudley Boosinger is buried?- Thanks Sam for answering my query-
