From the Chatsworth Plaindealer
MRS. R.M. (HARRIETT MARGARETTA WHITE) MILLER
DECEMBER 24, 1909
The death of Mrs. R.M. Miller occurred at the family home in this city on Thursday (Dec. 23) morning at about four o'clock, following an illness of about four years duration. She had been a great sufferer from a chronic stomach disease, and bout a week ago suffered a relaps, from which her depleted physical forces could not rally.
Harriett Margaretta White was born in Wheeling, West Virginia, March 6, 1843. In 1858 she moved to Peoria county, Illinois, with her parents, and after their death she made her home with her sister, Mrs. J.A. Campbell, in Chenoa, at which place she was united in marriage with R.M. Miller on Christmas day, 1867. Soon after their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Miller moved to a farm near Loda, and later they moved to Gibson City. In 1878 they moved to Forrest, and ten years later they came to Chatsworth to reside, having since made this city their home. They were the parents of four children, two having preceded the mother in death. Her husband, two daughters, Retta and Edna, both living at home, three sisters, Mrs. Belle Moore, of Chicago, Mrs. J.A. Campbell, of St. Louis, and Mrs. Elizabeth McCoy, of Tscumsch, Neb., and two brothers, R.T. and S. White, both of Hastings, Neb., as well as a large circle of friends, survive to mourn the death of a woman most highly esteemed by all who knew her.
The funeral services will be held on Saturday morning at 11z;30 o'clock at the M.E. church, Rev. O.M. Dunlevy officiating, and the remains will be taken on the afternoon train, via Forrest, to Gibson City, where the interment will take place.
