Marriage Notes for NANCY MILLER and OBEDIAH KOON:|
Viola Robbins, Grandaughter of James E Miller and Sarah P McElyea, provided the information about her Aunt "Kate" and her husband, Obediah N Koon. A handwritten note, on the family group sheet of Mark and Elizabeth MILLER, states:
"Kate" Miller, sister of James, m Obie Koon, Methodist Minister."
The author has found no supporting documention, but this is possibly a first marriage which soon ended in "Kate's" death. Nancy M (?Kate?) Miller would have been 17 or 18 years old in 1870.
In the 1870 Census, Prentiss CO, MS, Obidiah Koon is listed with his father, George A Koon. He is age 17, b Alabama. Therefore it is believed that Nancy Miller would still be listed with her parents, Mark and Elizabeth Miller. There is no further knowledge of Nancy.
The following information is presented for purposes of clarification.
A handwritten letter, written by Verda and Arthur McElyea on June 22, 1972 states: My husband's Aunts were: Kate Childers; Bettie Coon; Sally Miller; Mary Beasley, Mandy Cooper; Susie McElyea and Emeline Owns. These were his Father's Sisters.

NOTE: A descendant of Obediah Koon and his wife Elizabeth has provided the following information. He believes that Elizabeth was Elizabeth McElyea, the sister of Sarah P McElyea, who married James E Miller. He believes that the above reference: "Kate Miller", the sister of James, married Obie Koon, a Methodist Minister", is a mistake.
" Looking for my GGrandfather, Obediah (Obie) Noel Koon, b 1853 d 1894 m (Mary?) Elizabeth McElyea Buried in Candy Hill Cemetery near Myrtle, MS. Children included Susan Ida, Mary, Mittie and Minnie, twins, Orlando, George and Minerva Jane (my Grandmother). After the death of parents, twelve days apart, older children were sent to Jim and Sallie Miller to raise. Younger children to Orphan's home. Believe Sally was Mary Elizabeth's Sister."
" Our evidence for his marriage to Elizabeth McElyea consists of his gravestone giving Elizabeth as his wife and much family history of Elizabeth McElyea as his wife. I also have correspondence from a descendant of Obie's brother that Obie was married to Elizabeth E ?, and gives death dates and burial places.
The oldest members of my mother's family referred to their grandmother as Elizabeth, and to their grandaunt as Sally and to Sally's husband as Jim. One of them thought Elizabeth was a middle name by which she was known and that her first name was "Mary or something like that". I have one photo of her with Obie and most of their children. The only date I have is her death date.
My notes from back when many older siblings were alive say, "Jim and Sally Miller raised the older Koon children after their parents died. Younger children were put in an Orphan's home. Believe Sally was Elizabeth's sister. Susan Ida, oldest child moved to Texas with husband. Sent for George to come live with them. George was deaf and dumb and was killed, being struck by a train on the way to Texas.
From a Koon Family History Book is this: George's son, Obediah N Koon, married Nancy E ? and had several children. He died circa 1894 and his wife died shortly after. They are both buried at Candy Hill Cemetery in Union County, MS. Their children were adopted and went to Arkansas and Texas. He was an ordained Minister and is well remembered in the Myrtle, MS area."
