    I need to view the will and last testament of Evylena Nunn Miller. She was born in Mayfield, Kansas, July 4,1888, died on February 25, 1966 in her home in Santa Ana, California. She was a well-known artist in California with paintings in the Smithsonian and in “Who’s Who” as an artist. She was my great aunt. I have been asked to write her biography but need the information from her will to complete this work. I live in Oregon but will be at the Bower’s Museum on Tuesday and Wednesday, May 28 and May 29 as they house many of Evylena’s paintings.
