From Kathi and Keith Taylor research:
Interestingly Jacob G. Miller and his wife, Elenore Miller were also listed (the next family to be counted on that record). This was the second marriage for both Jacob G Miller and Eleanore Miller. There were 3 Miller children living in that family and they were Jacob G. Miller's children from a previous marriage. Eleanore Miller (Jacob Miller's wife) was born in Penn. as were all of the Miller Children. This family may have been related to Anna Mariah but no record has been found indicating that relationship. In the 1870 Federal Census of the Richland Township, Chelsea, Tama Co., IA; Anna Mariah (Wyatt) Campbell’s children Mary J Campbell age 14 and Frank Andrew Campbell age 12 were living with Jacob G. Miller and his wife Ellenore Miller. Also listed in this census is the value of real estate owned and personal property owned. Jacob G. Miller is listed with $2400 in real estate and $750 in personal property. The majority of what he had in 1870 is the same real property inherited by Anna Mariah Campbell at the death of her father in PA. Apparently it was transferred to Jacob G. Miller or to Elenore Miller, in return for caring for Anna Mariah’s children, or it may have been a condition of the inheritance.
