Muller Family


Leo Henry Miller [Parents] [scrapbook] was born on 3 Oct 1895 in Fort Madison, Lee, Iowa. He died on 26 Aug 1975 in Fort Madison, Lee, Iowa. He was buried on 29 Aug 1975 in Fort Madison, Lee, Iowa. He married Julia Cecelia Doran on 17 Jun 1925 in Fort Madison, Lee, Iowa.

Leo went to work on the Sante Fe Railroad when he was a boy of 14 years of age doing the heavy work of unloading train coal cars by hand. Leo worked and studied to become a brakeman, a fireman and a locomotive engineer for the Sante Fe, where he worked for 45 years. Some of these years were spent on the Missouri division taking him from Fort Madison to Marceline, Missouri and back. Some time was spent working on the switch engine in the Fort Madison shops. The last assignment given him before his retirement was to deliver an engine to its base for historic preservation in the Riverview Park area, donated to the city of Fort Madison. As of 2014, this engine can still be seen in the park there. On June 17, 1925, at 6:00 a.m. at Sacred Heart Church in Fort Madison, Leo married Julia Cecelia Doran. Their attendants were Leo's sister and brother, Anna Miller and Carl P. Miller. Their daughter Cecelia told this story:
"When asked how they met, they told how Julia would walk to work and often would have to walk past Leo who was always standing in front of a store or on a street corner on his day off from his job. He was not much of a talker, but would always say "Hello". Then one day there was a Telephone Company benefit party coming up and each employee was to sell tickets to the affair. That time when they met and said "Hello", Julia asked if he would be interested in buying a ticket. Leo responded, "I'll buy one if you will go with me." What a sale! That was the beginning of their courtship.

Cecelia Miller, his granddaughter writes in 1997:
"Though we would often ask Dad (Leo Miller I) about his ancestors, all he could tell us was that his father, Charles, ran away from the German army, came by boat to the United States and changed his name from Mueller to Miller. He (Leo) often said that he thought he still had relatives back in Germany somewhere, but had no idea where. He said his father never wanted to talk about his German relatives, afraid that if the German officials found him, he would be treated as a deserter."

Charles E. Miller was naturalized five years later in 1879. He later moved to Wien, Missouri where he took up farming. He met Philomena Bixenman who had moved there with her family from Lake County, Indiana.

The family lived on Charles' farm for a few years. Although German was their first language, both Charles and Philomena spoke English as well.

Philomena Bixenman [scrapbook] was born on 27 Apr 1869 in Lawrence, Lake, Indiana. She died on 23 Jun 1939 in Fort Madison, Lee, Iowa. She was buried in Fort Madison, Lee, Iowa. She married Carl Christian Miller on 14 Apr 1891 in Wien, Chariton, Missouri.

She moved with the family from Lake County, Indiana to Wien, Missouri when she was about three years old. The story of this trip is told under her father's history. She must have attended the school taught by the Franciscan Sisters in Wien. It is unknown if she worked out after great eight as so many of the girls did then. Many young girls from Wien sought and found jobs as maids in St. Louis in the houses of the well-to-do.

Philomena visited her daughter at Mazenod, Saskatchewan at least three times.

A voter registration card found in Fort Madison, Iowa had this information concerning Philomena:
She was called Minnie Miller, age 64, born April 27, 1870, in Indiana, she was single (i.e. a widow), female and white. She was in the United States 64 years and in the state of Iowa, county of Lee, 40 years and in the precinct four months. She lived on Avenue H at the time of registration in 1934. The card was signed by Mrs. Minnie Miller. An added note stated she died in 1939.

For some years Philomena lived with her son Leo I, his wife Julia and family. Leo's daughter Cecelia writes of this time:
"I can remember Grandmother Philomena living with us. Grandmother Miller came to live with us when my grandfather Doran (Mom's dad) passed away (1934?). At that time she had been living with Aunt Crescence Deverman in Boston. I believe when she had her first stroke. I remember Mom saying she went out East and brought Grandma Philomena Miller home to live with us so she and Dad could take care of her. Even after her stroke I remember her smile. She was rather a quiet person.
We were old enough to appreciate her German and we had fun trying to figure out what she was telling us when speaking to us in German - That was the way she entertained us. We should have learned more German than we did but to us it was a game.
It was devastating to come home that day from our music lessons and find she had her final stroke. We had had a laughter-filled breakfast with her, such a nice remembrance."

Philomena was buried beside her husband Charles in the Sacred Heart Cemetery in Fort Madison. The "Evening Democrat" had this article:
Mrs. P. Miller Dies Thursday
Mrs. Philomena Miller aged 70 years, a resident of Ft. Madison, the past 40 years died at 9 o'clock Thursday night in Sacred Heart Hospital. She passed away following an illness of one and one-half years duration.
Mrs. Miller, nee Philomena Bixenmann, was born in Laurence, Indiana, April 27, 1869. She was married in Wien, Missouri, in 1889 to Charles E. Miller. Mr. Miller died 16 years ago. She was a member of Sacred heart Catholic Church of Fort Madison and of the Rosary Society and Ladies Auxiliary of that Church.
Surviving are two sons Carl and Leo Miller both residents of Fort Madison; three daughters: Mrs. Ben Sieman (sic) of Mazenod, Saskatchewan, Canada, Mrs. Lloyd Bowen, San Diego, California, and Mrs. Crescent (sic) Deverman, Boston, Mass.; two brothers, Casper Bixenman, Saskatchewan, Canada and John Bixenman, Wien, Missouri and nine grand-children. Two sisters and two borthers preceded her in death.

Benedict Seemann [scrapbook] was born on 27 Jun 1890 in Wien, Chariton, Missouri. He was christened in 1890 in Wien, Chariton, Missouri. He died on 26 Dec 1965. He was buried in Mazenod, Saskatchewan. He married Anna Mary Miller on 12 Sep 1925 in Mazenod, Saskatchewan, Canada.

St. Mary of the Angels Church 125th History Book lists him as being baptized at St. Mary's in Wien in 1890

Ben moved in 1902 with the family to Fort Madison where he helped on the railway with his dad, Adalbert and his brothers Joseph and Herman.

After Caspar Bixenman had moved to Tyvan Saskatchewan, Adalbert Seemann decided to follow him west with his family. In 1906 he moved everything to Tyvan, Saskatchewan, then to Mazenod. While living with this parents, in 1911, he built a sod shack and in 1912 he took up homesteading. His land was the SE section 7, township 11, range 2, meridian 3.

In 1917 Ben built what he called a temporary house. He had a Willis car which he stopped driving during the depression of the 30's. It sat for several years in the garage. In 1918 Ben was living alone when he got the flu with a very high temperature. He went into town where his sister Minnie took care of him.

Ben broke land with a horse and an ox hitched together. Water was scarce on the prairies and so wells were needed. These were dug by hand and the location for one was found by "witching". Ben had this gift of witching and so was much in demand for his ability to find water. He used a piece of an old Ford car - just a piece of steel with a loop in it. He held the loop up and when water was below the loop turned over on its own. He discovered streams of sweet water, which means drinking water, under his own land running between the house and the barn. Mary Ann, his daughter, had the same ability. By this time he was living in the temporary house he had built. After the war he was going to build onto it but never did.

He took an active part in church life. He sang in the church choir.

Ben had a stroke and went into the nursing home in Gravelbourg where he died on December 26, 1965.

Anna Mary Miller [Parents] [scrapbook] was born on 11 Nov 1891 in Fort Madison, Lee, Iowa. She died on 3 Sep 1987 in Assiniboia, Saskatchewan, Canada. She was buried in Mazenod, Saskatchewan, Canada. She married Benedict Seemann on 12 Sep 1925 in Mazenod, Saskatchewan, Canada.

Anna was baptized in St. Mary of the Angels Church in Wien Missouri. Shortly after this, her family moved to Fort Madison, Iowa. They beloged to St. Mary's parish in Fort Madison. She appeared on the 1910 census in Fort Madison under her father's entry:
Anna, daughter, female, white, 18 years, single, born Missouri, father born Germany, mother born Indiana, speaks English, paper-folder at paper mill, works, can read, can write, does not go to school, no. of farm schedule 2;

She attended Sacred Heart School in Fort Madison. She worked in a paper mill folding paper and in a button factor, then apprenticed to a dressmaker for one dollar per week. Because buttons were in big, she made a fashionable dress with seven dozen buttons on it. They were double rows down the front, on the sleeves and everywhere they could be put.

Anna also packaged shingles for a construction company. The girls would put their names and addresses on the shingles before the packages were sent out. She got an answer from one and wrote to him until he proposed, then she stopped writing.

From Fort Madison, Anna moved to Santa Rosa, California, probably with friends from Fort Madison. In the early 20's she went to Saskatchewan. She knew the Kesslars and worked there while Theresa was in the hospital at Mayos. For a time she worked in Stuart's store in Mazenod while living with McGurk's. She met Benedict Seemann in Mazenod.

It was probably while Anna was working for Kesslars that she renewed her acquaintance with Ben Seeman. After they married, they lived on the farm that Ben had homesteaded.

She took an active part in church life. She played the organ for church services.

Once their daughter Helen had settled in California, Ben and Anna visited her there in 1956. In 1960, they left the farm and bought Zado's former home in Mazenod. They sold the farm to Edward Seemann sometime during the early 1960's.

After the death of her husband, Anna remained in the house for the summers and rented it ot the Kraus family for the winter when she went to California. Sometimes she stayed with her sister-in-law, Ann Lunceford.

In 1970 she went to the Seniors Home in Assiniboia. She was visited there by her sister Crescence who came to celebrate her 90th birthday.
