Historique

In 1897, Oseas Muhlstock (later Miller) left Budapest, Hungary for Canada, leaving behind his wife and three children. Oseas (d. 1951) arrived in Halifax and immediately took a job as a coal miner. After an explosion which caused him major hearing loss, he left for Montreal and opened a general store, and then sent for his wife Goldie Tilleman Miller (d. 1950) and children Jenny (d. 1976), Louis (d. 1977) and Abe (d. 1964). A fourth child, Jack (d. 1968), was born in Montreal. Daughter Jenny married Oseas Davis (d. 1977), a merchant from Edmonton. Louis went to McGill to study medicine, and graduated in 1920. He practiced medicine in Edmonton from 1928-1959. He married Rae, and they had two children: Joe, a doctor, and Joyce (McDonald). Abe quit school, and moved to Edmonton to work in the Davis general store. The rest of the family followed in 1915. Abe enrolled in Alberta College, and upon graduation was accepted in the first law class at the University of Alberta. Abe was the youngest lawyer of his day to be appointed King's Council. In the1950s, Abe became a member of City Council and later and MLA. He married Betty (Rebecca) Griesdorf (d. 1971). Together, they had three children: Tevie (d. 1996), Helen and Leon. Tevie and Leon became lawyers, Tevie eventually becoming the Associate Chief Justice of the Alberta Supreme Court, and Helen became a member of City Council.
