"WASHINGTON Miller was born in Berkely County, Virginia, December 1, 1836, and is the fifth of the six children born to JOHN and MARY (RUNNER) MILLER, both natives of Virginia and of English descent. JOHN MILLER was a farmer in Virginia, was there married, and came to Tippecanoe County, this State (Indiana), in 1837, bought a farm south of LaFayette. He had been a soldier in the war of 1812, and met his death in 1866 from injuries incurred from being thrown from a buggy. WASHINGTON MILLER was employed on the home farm until he was twenty-five years old, and in July, 1861, he enlisted in Company A, Fortieth Indiana Volunteer Infantry, and was mustered out in December, 1864, at Nashville, Tenn. He took part in the battles of Shiloh, Stone River, Mission Ridge, Resaca and the Atlanta campaign, and was several times wounded, though slightly. On his return, he farmed on shares four years in Tippecanoe County, and then bought a farm, which he worked until the spring of 1875, when he came to this township and bought the farm of 150 acres where he now resides. February 22, 1866, he married MARY J. NALLEY, a native of Pickaway County, Ohio, who has borne him six children. MR. MILLER is a member of the G.A.R., and in politics is a Republican."
