Birth: 1772
Death: Nov. 13, 1851
Auburn
Cayuga County
New York, USA

Judge Elijah Miller, 79, was notably the father-in-law and early law partner of celebrated American statesman William H. Seward. A distinguished local jurist and widower of the former Hannah Foote, Judge Miller gave Seward permission to marry their daughter, Frances Adeline, on condition that the couple reside with him at his residence in Auburn, New York, now known as the national landmark Seward House, on the city's South Street. Impressed by the beauty of newly opened Fort Hill Cemetery in 1851, the Judge purchased a family plot here and was the first Seward relative to be buried in it, his death having occurred later that year. In time he was joined here by his daughters Frances Seward and Lazette Worden, his son-in-law William Seward, several grandchildren, and many of his descendants.
