Query: AUMILLER or AUMUELLER of Indiana

AUMILLER/AUMUELLER—Looking for information on the ancestors of my great-grandfather, John AUMILLER (may sometimes be found as AUMUELLER in records), who was born September 1854 in Indiana. He married about 1889 to Laura or Della (?MILLER?), who was born January 1871 in Utah. They are in the 1900 census in Carbon County, Utah, with children:

--Hugh R. (born May 1890 in Utah)

--Frank H. (born June 1893 in Utah)

--James Marshall (born August 1897 in Utah)

According to the 1900 census entry, both of John’s parents were born in Germany. His occupation is listed as coal miner. Where in Indiana did John come from? Is this the same John Aumiller as the one who was in the 1870 and 1880 censuses in Evansville, Vanderburgh County, Indiana, born about 1852 in Bavaria, son of John Aumiller (born about 1820 in Bavaria; died after 1880; occupation miller) and ?? (died before 1870)? This John married Apolonia ?? (born February 1846 in Indiana) and had children: Fred (born April 1873 in Indiana; died after 1900) and Carrie Marie (born August 1881 in Indiana; married W.J. DECKER on October 14, 1903 in Vanderburgh County). Apolonia is listed as a widow in the 1900 census for Evansville.

This John Aumiller had siblings:

--Francisca Aumiller (born about 1844 in Bavaria; married Clement BRECKER on April 14, 1873 in Vanderburgh County)

--Lewessa Aumiller (born about 1853 in Bavaria)—she may be the Theresa Aumiller who married Louis FAUSS on December 20, 1877 in Vanderburgh County

--Anna Aumiller (born about 1854 in Bavaria; died after 1870)
