     Mary Jane Miller was born on 8 January 1832 at Beard, Montgomery County, Illinois.1 Mary and Martha was probably a free white female, age 5 and under 10, in James Dean Miller's household, on the 1840 Census at Washington County, Iowa; James Miller, 1 male under 5, 1 male 30-40; 2 females 5-10; 1 female 20-30. Archie Miller believes this to be "this" James Miller.2 Mary Jane Miller was baptized on 10 October 1842 at Nauvoo, Hancock County, Illinois; Mary Jane Miller was born in January 1832 in Illinois.[160] She was the first child of Sarah Searcy and James Miller. She was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Nauvoo on 10 October 1842.[161]3 As of 30 March 1848,her married name was Bleazard.4 She married John Hopwood Bleazard at Winter Quarters, Council Bluffs, Pottawattamie County, Iowa, on 30 March 1848.4,3 An unknown person was divorced from John Hopwood Bleazard on 30 January 1851 at Utah The principle of plural marriage included a number of different types of marriages, each with its own set of obligations and expectations. Some unions were for this life only; other unions were believed to remain in force after death.[54] Sarah Searcy and John Blazzard began to practice plural marriage in 1848 when John married Sarah's daughter, Mary Jane Miller. Sarah and Mary Jane obtained divorces from John Hopwood Blazzard less than four months after their arrival in January 1851.[55] It is not clear if this divorce was intended to dissolve all marital ties, or simply change the type of marriage it was. Sarah and Mary Jane continued to live with John Blazzard throughout 1851.[56] [57] During this year another woman was added to the family when John Blazzard was married, but not sealed, to Margaret Birch in October.[58].4 Mary was divorced from John Hopwood Bleazard at Utah on 30 January 1851.3 Sarah, Mary, Sarah, Mariam, Samuel, Elijah, Jacob, Dorcas and John was listed as a household member living with John Hopwood Bleazard on the 1850 Census at Great Salt Lake, Salt Lake County, Utah; 303 303 John H.

It has long been assumed that Elijah died as a young child because his name is not included on the census list of the Nauvoo Second Ward with the rest of his family. Likewise, he is not listed with his mother on the company roster for the Wilford Woodruff Company. It is not yet known if the Elijah listed with the Blazzard family in the 1850 census entry is Sarah and James Miller?s son or the son of John Hopwood Blazzard from his first marriage.[171] Nothing further is known about Elijah.3

His father came in and asked the toddler to get off of the stool. When little John did not comply, his father kicked the stool throwing the child into the air high enough to hit his head on the ceiling. The child then landed on his head, breaking his neck. For a while they thought he would die. When the child came out of it "he didn't know anything, just seemed for three or four months he didn't know a thing - looked up like he was catching at something, and he never got any mind afterward." John was never able to live independently and care for himself.[181] He lived with his mother until her death in 1889. After that he lived under the care of his brother, Thomas Blazzard. John died 15 February 1922 from the effects of a broken leg caused by the attack of a vicious sheep.[182] John is buried in the Washington City Cemetery.[183]3

He moved with his mother to Washington City in southern Utah after her marriage to George Pectol. James secretly married Mary Catherine Jolley against the wishes of her family. Mary's brothers were so angered with James that, two to three years later, they ambushed him while he was driving freight. The Jolley boys scalped James, cut off his ears, and left him for dead. James' mother, Sarah, reattached his scalp and ears and along with Mary's grandmother Jolley nursed him back to health. During James' recovery his and Mary Catherine's daughter, a toddler named Mary Ann, disappeared. Neighbors all helped to look for the girl, but she could not be found. Some time later an Indian friendly to the Blazzard's left what appeared to be a small Indian girl on their doorstep; but as they washed her they discovered that it was the little girl they had lost. Her skin had been dyed with berries and her hair dyed with walnut bark. Soon after recovering Mary Ann, James and Mary Catherine moved to Thatcher, Arizona where they raised six children.[189] James died 24 April 1905 in Thatcher, Graham, Arizona.[190]2
