Milltown's Family Tree

Several of us have recently been searching Ancestry.com, building our Milltown and extended family trees.

These trees are searchable on the Ancestry.com site. A post I put up on the Remembering Milltown Facebook page showed that there is even greater interest in finding the family histories of many individuals, either residing in, or from Milltown.

These are the trees that we have worked on. If you would like help and advice on looking up your own Milltown-related family tree, please reach out to Barbara Wright at bwright@milltownps.org or Rich Jacques at bransonil@aol.com.

  • Kuhlthau- over 1400 people. Researched by Richard Jacques
  • Schlosser-
  • Crabiel-
  • Funk-
  • Billings-
  • Schwendeman

We would love to be able to format the trees to be searchable on this site, and more information will be coming.

Box of pictures

I was given a box of old photographs that I believe are of Grace Junker Regnault and her family. No names are written on any photos, but they were in the trash at her home on Chestnut St. as her home was being cleaned out after her death at age 101. Grace was the child of Catherine Heyl Junker and William Junker of Church St. Milltown. Her family were parishioners of St Paul's church. 

I will scan and post the pictures on this website, but if you are a relative or descendant of Grace and would like the originals, they should rightfully be yours.
