Hi Lazylane

Welcome to Rootschat!  :)

What resources have you checked?

Do you have the 1861 census for her, her marriage certificate for example?

Kind regards, Arranroots  ;)

Hi & welcome to Roots Chat  :)

In the 1861 census there is an Isabella M Miller, born 1857 Lambeth, aged 4, living with parents William Miller, b. 1826 Middlesex, and Maria A S Miller, b. 1826, Gosforth, Hampshire.  Mr Miller seems to be a salesman of surgical supplies. (RG9/351 Folio 233, p. 34).

Could this be them ?

 
RIP 1949-10th January 2013

Best Wishes,  Nick.

I'm tempted to ask how you know that's her?

How did you arrive at Isabella - then we can know how to help you.  The more information you give us, the less we find things that don't fit.  ;D

Kind regards, Arranroots  ;)
