Miller, Benjamin (5 MAR 1831)

Benjamin Miller, another native of New York State, born in Lenox, Madison Co., March 5, 1831. The family settled in McHenry Co., Ill., which was his home for twenty-three years. They moved to Sauk Co., Wis. in 1854 and after two years went to Tomah, and in 1881 moved to Houghtonburg., and then in 1899 came to town (Humbird, Clark County, Wis.). He married Catherine M. Weaver Oct. 1, 1836, to whom was born ten children; six are living. Mr. Miller served a short time in the 49th Wis. Inf. He attributes our reawakening principally to "flush times" and gives the Republican Party credit for the prosperity in which Humbird is having a part. However, Mr. Miller doesn’t strike the country that our burg has as good a chance for the future as any, but says another railroad would help matters. It compares favorably with other towns, being in the lead of those of the same size. In speaking of old residents, Mr. Miller says we should not forget E. J. Craig, the most eccentric man that ever lived in Humbird. He was a man greatly noted and all that knew him, would like to see him back.
