Notes:  Marion N. Hollinshead was born 22 Sep 1893 in Trempeleau County, Wisconsin.  Her parents were Edward Hollinshead and Susan Detwiller, who had immigrated to the United States in 1876.  Susan was the youngest of four children.  Her sister Ina was born in 1879 in Illinois; her brother Horace was born in 1882 in Iowa; and her brother Ernest was born in 1886, back in Canada.  Marion's father was a river captain, but he died 13 Aug 1896, shortly before Marion turned three.
In Jun 1900, Marion's family was living in Trempealeau.  Her mother was listed as a farmer, her sister Ina had married, and Horace, age 17, was a day laborer.  Ernest, age 14, and Marion, age 6, were attending school.  Her mother Susan died 5 Jan 1901, in Trempealeau, when Marion was seven years old.  Marion evidently went to live with her older sister Ina.

In 1905 and 1910, Marion was living with Clement and Ina Crait, her sister and husband's family in Staples, Minnesota.  Her nephews were Wallace and Lawrence Crait.  Clement was a clerk for the Northern Pacific Railroad Co., and Ina was a music teacher.

Marion moved west with Clement and Ina.  By 1915, they were living at 2312 N. 62nd, Seattle, Washington.  Marion married Ephriam A. Miller on 10 Aug 1916 in their home.  Clement was a witness to the ceremony.

According to family records, Marion and Ephriam's first son Robert was probably born in California in Mar 1917, but died at age 7 months in Hood River, Oregon.  When Ephriam registered for the World War I draft, the family was living in Portland, Oregon with their 3 month old baby.  Their next three sons were definitely born in California.  Ashley, or Ned, was born on 5 Oct 1918 in Los Angeles County.  In the 1920 U.S. census, the family was living in Placentia.  Their son John was born 27 Jul 1920 in Fullerton, and son Lawrence on 5 Nov 1922 in Placentia.  Ned died young while the family was living in California.

Marion and Ephriam, with sons John and Lawrence, moved to Seattle, Washington, where they are found living in the 1930 U.S. census.  Kenneth was born 9 Oct 1930 in Seattle.  Shortly thereafter, they moved to Oregon, where Donald was born in 9 Jan 1932 in Hood River, and where Marion finally gave birth to a daughter.  In the 1940 U.S. census, the family was living in Odell, Oregon, just south of Hood River.

Marion's husband Ephriam died 19 Mar 1957 in Portland, and was buried in the Willamette National Cemetery in Portland.  Marion died 13 Oct 1976 in the Hood River Memorial Hospital at the age of 83.  Over the years she had suffered from diabetes and arteriolosclerosis, and cause of death was exsanguination due to a ruptured aorta.  She was buried 18 Oct 1976 in the Willamette National Cemetery next to her husband.
