Tombstone Tuesday, Leora Pryce Miller
Ada Leora Pryce Miller (b: 26 June 1888, Milton Junction, Rock, Wisconsin; d: 24 August 1973, Riverside, Riverside, California) was the daughter of James Corliss Pryce, Jr. & Ada Florence Brightman. Her line goes back to such notables as the Spencer family (of Princess Di) and John Howland of the Mayflower. Many of her ancestors were involved in the Seventh Day Baptist church of Rock County, Wisconsin and include such Colonial ancestoral names as Clark/Clarke, Greene, Davis, Maxson, Rogers, and Lanphere/Lamphere. My research has taken me back in this line to the Coggeshall/de Coggeshall family before 1100 AD. It's a remarkable lineage that is not mine, but that of my second cousins.
