I have not been able to find out much about Martha Jane Mills Hiser's parents, other than their names, which I got from a Jay County history, found in the genealogy library in Salt Lake City. I have found lots of Mills and LaFollets, but nothing about Jesse Mills or Sarah LaFollet in particular. Jesse Mills was born 1 August 1816 in Ohio and died 13 Feb 1862 in Jay County. The only information I have about Sarah LaFollet is that she was born in Kentucky in 1822. Do you have any information about Jesse or Sarah?
