Miller, Joseph (12 DEC 1859 - 5 AUG 1914)

On Wednesday, Aug. 5th, 1914, at 11 o’clock in the morning, Joseph Miller, one of our oldest settlers, died of dropsy at his home in the town of Green Grove, Clark Co., Wis.

Joseph Miller was born in Manitowoc Co., on the 12th of December, 1859, where he lived until about 20 years of age, when he left for Superior and lived with his brother for two years. Then he came to Colby and soon purchased a farm in Green Grove, where he moved with his father. In January 1883 he was united in marriage to Marian Strasser of Colby. Six children were born to them: Joe, Anna (Mrs. Mead), George, Fred, Barbara, Tony. All are living.

The funeral took place on Friday morning at 10 o’clock. Father Artmann of the Roman Catholic Church of Colby, officiated. All the children but Fred, who is in the West, were present. The remains were laid to rest in the Colby Catholic Cemetery.

Joseph Miller was one of the pioneers settlers of this part of the state. He was an industrious farmer and did much to uplift his community.
