  • Mrs. Mary Miller, widow of Benjamin F. Miller, is of German lineage, and was born in 1832. Her parents were born in Illinois. Her father followed farming as a vocation and died about twenty years ago. Her mother, though born in 1802, is alive and strong and active for one her age. She resides in Bollinger County, Mo. Mrs. Miller was married on January 4, 1854, to Benjamin F. Miller, after which they located on a farm in Bollinger County. Mr. Miller was engaged in agricultural pursuits until his death in October, 1885. To them were born ten children, four of whom, Marshall, Eva Josephine (now the wife of J.P. Walker), Charles and Delia Jane, are living. The family live in good circumstances on 218 acres of land. Most of this farm is in Castor River Valley, and is very productive. It lies in Bollinger and Wayne Counties. The family residence, however, is in Bollinger County, and Mrs. Miller and children are among the most respected citizens of their section of the county.
