Isaiah Miller

(From Friday's Daily)

Isaiah Miller, 53 years old, passed away at his home in Porter township last night at 7 o'clock, after a long period of illness. He had suffered since last fall. Since then he was taken to a Chicago hospital, where, it was believed, lasting benefit would result. However, he was brought home with no hopes for recovery.

Mr. Miller was one of the best known men in his township and in Hebron and vicinity. He was a member of the Masonic order at Hebron, and that body will conduct ritual services at the grave Sunday afternoon. Rev. C. M. Filer will officiate at the Salem church, begininng at 2 o'clock, and interment will be in the Salem cemetery.

The deceased was the son of James Miller, one of the pioneers of the southwest part of the county. He leaves a wife, and children as follows: Mrs. Hazel Ginder, Miss Alma Miller, Mrs. May Thompson, Henry Miller and Murray Miller. Elmer Miller, who was here a few weeks ago from North Carolina, is a brother of the deceased, and Mrs. Albert Skinkle, of Porter township, and Mrs. Jennie Douglas and Miss Stella Miller, residing in New Mexico, are the surviving sisters.
