      (Bigham) LEE, Miller who died1 Oct 1952 in Hood River, Hood River Co.,
      Oregon. buried there also.This information is from her grandaughter Linda

      husband Robert Miller who she married in St. Jo on 12 Mar 1901,and her
      father Robert Bigham and #2 wife and children (see 1900 Jefferson Twp,
      Andrew Co., Mo census) left soon for Idaho where they resided before
      removing to Eastern Oregon. So that gets the Lee/Miller family to Oregon.
