Birth: Jul., 1807
Death: Jun. 4, 1895

Mrs. Nancy Gibson Miller died Tuesday at midnight at her residence on Vine street, aged 88 years. Her husband preceded her four years ago, when he was also in his 89th year. Surviving her are three children - Mrs. S. Fanny Irwin, John W. Miller, an expert accountant of Allegheny, and George A. Miller, with the Pennsylvania railroad in Philadelphia. Mrs. Miller was born in Pittsburgh July 6, 1806, the eldest daughter of Woolman Gibson, a pioneer merchant of Market street, who built the Union National bank building, and with the exception of a few years, all her life has been spent here. The family have been strong Methodists since her grandfather, John Wrenshall, the first expounder of Wesley's doctrines in Western Pennsylvania, went his rounds through this part of the country, and her connection with the old M. P. church that stood where Kaufmann's store now is, dates back to her childhood days. She was considered one of the "pillars of the church". Mrs. Miller was much beloved. Her husband, thirty years ago, kept a grocery store on Fifth avenue, on the corner of Scrip alley, and was well known. Mrs. Miller was an aunt of Wilson Miller, of the Pittsburgh locomotive and car works, and of Reuben Miller, the steel manufacturer. She was a cousin of Gen. Grant's wife, and had frequently entertained the general.
