Update 1* Feb 20, 2010
I received an email from George Berdux Miller's grandson, Steve Miller, in England.
George was the brother of John C. Miller.
John C. Miller's father, was John D. Miller, who lived in Melville.
George Berdux Miller was a jeweller who ran a business in conjunction with John C. Miller at Southey, Sask. around the time of WW1.
John is known to have run a hotel in Southey SK.

Steve Miller asks these questions: I don't suppose anybody knows exactly why John C. Miller ceased being the postmaster at Neudorf, (old age, 67?), or what happened to him afterward,
or what happened to wife, Maud (Yuill) and children, Maud b. 1911 and Queenie b. 1915 and possible others?
There was also Maud's younger sister Queenie, Victoria Irene Yuill, b. 1897 at Brandon, Man. but virtually adopted by the Millers,
who married Thomas Henry Johnston at Winnipeg in 1920.
He also asks the question as to some legal problems for John C. Miller, and wants to know if these rumours are true.
