ok, the book is History of Medina County and Ohio, publisher -- Chicago, Baskin & Battey, Historical Publishers, 186 Dearborn Street, 1881.

P. 594, reference to Hiram Miller as follows:
"The church is known as a United Brethren Church, perhaps for the reason that more of that denomination than any other belongs. Near the church lives an old man named Hiram B. Miller who became widely known before the last war by his taking an active part in assisting runaway slaves to Canada."

Bio is on p. 776-777 and is extensive. I will hit the highlights. If you would like a copy snail-mailed to you, e-mail me with your address at

Hiram B. Miller, native of NY, born 4/3/1807 in Ontario Co., his parents were Lyman and Celia (Wheeler) Miller, also natives of the Empire State. Hiram was married in 1829 to Miss Maria Deming, daughter of David and Sarah (Lewis) Deming, who were residents of Monroe Co., NY. Maria was born in MA. Maria died 3/10/1876. They had seven children living at the time of the book's publishing: Cordelia M., Arethusa H., Sherman L., Henrietta, Betsey A., Frank D. and Harvey T.
