MARSHALL MILLER biographical sketch.
Although the merchandise business conducted by Marshall Miller has been in operation only since January 1, 1905, it already bids fair to become one of the most lucrative concerns in Butte City, Glenn county. For nearly twenty-five years Mr. Miller has been a resident of this city and connected for the greater part of tht time with the mercantile pursuits of the place. A native of the state, he was born in Nevada City June 24, 1856, a son of Marshall and Eleanor (Harrison) Miller.
Marshall Miller remained at home with his mother until attaining the age of sixteen years, receiving a rather limited education in the buplic schools. Upon changing his residence to Glenn county he became dependent upon his own resources, engaging as a farm hand for a livelihood. After two years he began clerking, which occupation he followed for a brief time, when he went to Tehama county and took up one hundred and sixty acres of undeveloped land, which he
proceeded to improve and place under cultivation. Until 1881 he remained engaged in this line of work, when he returned to Butte City, and entered the employ of his half-brother, William Franklin Miller, as a clerk, continuing with him for eleven years. He was then associated with hochheimer & Co. for one year, when, in April 1893, he entered into partnership with three others in the ownership of a general merchandise establishment under the firm name of W. Frank Miller & Co. This business was continued successfully until January 1, 1905, when Mr. Miller established his present business. His personal characteristics and business ability are such as to have won for him during the past years in which he has been a resident of this place the entire confidence and respect of his fellow townsmen, and insures hima success in his independent efforts. In additon to his business he owns some property in Butte City, having a residence and several lots.
In 1880 Mr. Miller was united in marriage with Mrs. Rosaltha Duncan, and to them were born the following children: Julia Eleanor, Marshall Jr., Alta and Beulah. Politically Mr.Miller is a stanch Democrat, and in the interests of this party has served continuously since 1898 as notary public. He has been a member of the Democratic county central committee and a delegate to the county convention. Both himself and wife are members of the Christian Church of Butte City, and faternally he is a charter member of the lodge of the Independent Order of Foresters of Butte City.
