Random Person of the Day - Jessie Miller
Jessie Miller married the brother of my 2x great grandfather Ezra Acker. His name was Thomas W. Acker. She was born about 1873 in Belfast, Ireland. Jessie and Thomas applied for their marriage license on 26 Aug 1895 and were married two days later in Detroit, Michigan. She was subsequently found living with him and their family in the 1900, 1910, and 1920 censuses, all in Detroit. Thomas died a few years later in 1923. Jessie had at least 3 children. Her first child, named Percy W., was born 13 April 1896 and died on 17 Oct 1910 at the age of 14 from an inflammation of the heart. Her next son was born 30 April 1898 and died 3 days later. His name wasn't given on his death certificate. Cause of death was eclampsia. Her final child known to me, Adeline, was born in 1905. There is some evidence Adeline eventually moved to California.
