Thomas G. Miller was born in Iowa, the son of Martha Matilda Bell Pentico and her first husband. His mother and Simon Pentico married when Thomas was just a year old. The Simon Pentico family came from Jasper County, Iowa to Republic County, Kansas, in the early 1870s. Thomas would have been about 8 years old when they established their homestead in 1873. He shares a grave marker with his half-sister, Katie M. Pentico.
