Miller, Lynn (13 Dec 1878 - 11 Dec 1936)

Lynn Miller was born on a farm one mile north of Greenwood, Clark County, now known as the George Speich farm, on Dec. 13, 1878. He lived there and went to the Greenwood School until about 1895 or 1896, having spent a year in La Crosse fitting himself for a business career, also during that time.

He then migrated to Oregon and settled in Chehalis and entered the lumber industry. In 1905 he left Chehalis and entered the logging and sawmill business with his brother Smith, and father, later buying out his father and continuing until 1914 when he went in for himself on Lake Washington in Portland.

About 1923 he became identified in various ventures, mostly promoting various industries in and around Seattle and moved to Los Angeles only a few years ago, It was while he was on a trip into southern Arizona prospecting for large gold deposits with Geophysical instruments, when the end came after he had dinner that evening and lay down and went away without even his associate hardly noticing it.

That was on Dec. 11th. The funeral was held from the Wee Kirk O’Heather, the little church in Los Angeles where Will Rogers funeral was recently held. He is survived by his wife, two daughters, Elma and Betty, and one son, Lynn Jr., all unmarried.
