Biographical Sketch of Samuel Miller

Samuel Miller, one of the early settlers, came from New Hampshire and settled upon the farm now owned by his grandson, Herman B. Miller, on road 37. Mr. Miller served in the revolutionary army. On one expedition against the Indians of Genesee county, N. Y., he nearly perished from hunger. He possessed a strong, rugged constitution, a true, upright character, and during his long life here he gained the respect of all with whom he was brought in contact. He reared a family of eleven children, and died in 1837, aged seventy-five years. Samuel R., the second son of Samuel, was born in 1774, and for many years was a resident of the town. He died in 1853. His family consisted of five children, only one of whom, Herman B., who now occupies the old homestead, settled in the town. Herman B. has six children, three of whom reside in the town.
