Subject: Obituary of Samuel T. Miller

Ken, the following obituary is an addition to the Miller search (Admiral Roger Deem). I think it's interesting that the reverend who conducted this sermon (Elmer Lowe) was also one of the sons-in-law of the Long family I just sent to Deloyce Jessen-Snaza. The natives are restless. :)






Samuel Thomas Miller, son of Samuel and Cynthia Hopkins Miller was born February 3, 1854 on a farm near Timewell, where he spent the greater part of his life.


He passed away March 10, 1927. He was a member of the Presbyterian Church  at Fargo, Ill.


He was married on April 12, 1879 to Annie Miller, who preceded him in death November 28, 1905. To this union were born four children: Mrs. Mertie Cleaves of Rocky Ford, Colo.; Mrs. Rose Hoke of Camp Point; Miss Edith Miller of Champaign, and Samuel Leslie, who passed away May 31, 1923. On September 5, 1908 he was married to Lucy Cleaves, who with the three daughters and seven grandchildren survive. There are also left to mourn his death three sisters and one brother, besides nephews and nieces.


Funeral services were conducted at the home at 3 p.m., March 18, by Rev.Elmer Lowe. Music was furnished principally by nephews and nieces of Mr. Miller. At his request he was buried in his wedding suit, worn fifty-one years ago. burial was in the Fargo Cemetery.
