Ray Miller and his Orchestra

by

I hate to intrude but I believe my grandfather may have been THE Ray Miller of the 20's. Can someone help me? I have a trunk of his belongings - he died in 1974. In it is a 78 of Dixie Highway and Early in the Morning on the flipside. I know he led a band and did play the drums. He was a character. I was born in 1959 so I missed all this. Sadly, my mother died 20 years ago (1986) so I can't confirm this with her either. Ray married my grandmother in the 30's and adopted my mother and she took his name, Miller.

I have read that not much is known about him after he dropped out of the music scene at a young age.

Anyone please respond.

Sincerely,

Joan Wise
