This website is for the Miller and Feterl families. When Glenn Charles Miller and Mildred Elizabeth Feterl married, they connected four families – Miller, Brereton, Feterl, and Glass.

Stephen Miller was born in Wisconsin and went to Turner County, South Dakota to homesteaded. Lyman Webster and his wife, Sarah Nutt Brown of New Hampshire, homesteaded in Turner County, South Dakota in the 1880s. Their daughter, Ivanilla, married Stephen Miller in Parker, Turner County, South Dakota in 1887.

William Brereton married Minnie Boynton in Wilton Center, Will County, Illinois in 1886. They moved to Calhoun County, Iowa. Their daughter, Edna, married Harry Miller, son of Stephen Miller and Ivanilla Webster. Glenn was the son of Harry and Edna.

George Feterl and Elizabeth Sell-Werner were German immigrants who met and married in Iowa. Shortly after their marriage in 1882, they moved to McCook County, South Dakota where they homesteaded.

John Glass and Mary Auth were originally from LaSalle County, Illinois. They lived in Carroll County, Iowa for a few years and then moved to Salem about 1902. Their daughter, Louise , married Frank Feterl, oldest son of George Feterl and Elizabeth Sell-Werner. Mildred was the daughter of Frank and Louise.
