Looking for Edward Newton Miller ancestors with lines from PA, OH, IL, MO, and AR.

Edward Newton Miller was born in Ohio on 12-9-1832. According to census records, his father was born in PA and his mother in Ireland. Their names are not known to me. He married Sarah Elizabeth Dunlap in Pike County, IL on 11-10-1853. She was born in Indiana in 1836. Their first 4 children were born in Illinois and then they moved to Missouri and had 4 more children there. They moved to Arkansas and lived out the rest of their lives in Cleburne County, AR. Nothing is known about Sarah's parents other than her father was born in KY and her mother in TN, per census records.

Edward's mother visited them in AR when the children were still young and could not speak very much English. The children were scared of her.
