Professor John Peery Miller-Autobiography

For researchers interested in the Miller Family of Clark County, Ohio, the history of the county, or the 153rd Ohio Volunteer Infantry Regiment (Civil War), you may find the autobiography of Professor John Peery Miller (1847-1935) to be an interesting and useful document. A scanned copy of the original, typed by Professor Miller in the late 1920s, has been posted on the Clark County GenWeb site (under Military Records) at http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ohclark/military.htm. Thanks to a descendant of Professor Miller, I was able to have the document converted to a PDF file so that it could be made widely available. For genealogists, Professor Miller, a professor of history at Antioch College, is best known among genealogists for his publication in 1913 of the book "The Descendants of Frederick and Mary Elizabeth Peery Miller", who were his German grandparents and the progenitors of a large Miller lineage in Clark County. His autobiography includes reflections on his childhood in the county (including life on a pioneer farm), his service in the 153rd Ohio, his career as an educator, and his personal and family life.
