Green Edward Miller was born June 4, 1870 in Wise County Texas, near Decatur. His parents were Green Anderson Miller and Ann Mildred Parson. Ann Mildred Parson died in 1876.
G. E. Miller attended the Rush Branch School near Decatur, Texas, between about 1880 and 1885.
He married Martha Ann Baker McKindrey on April 9 1893, in Barstow, Ward County, Texas. McKindrey was divorced and the mother of two children, Maudie and Melvin.
The family moved to Hay Canyon, near Weed, New Mexico, around 1893 and their first two children, Joseph Anderson and Ada Frances, were born there. The Millers homesteaded on what is now Miller Flats, between Mayhill and Weed, around 1898.
They named their place Sunnyview Farm. Six more children were born to the couple: George Edward (Jed) in 1898, Winnie Mae in 1901, Charles Myron in 1904, Lela in 1906, and twins, Faye and Raye in 1911.
Miller was active as a photographer in Dona Ana, Otero and Lincoln counties from about 1893 to 1920, although most of his work was produced in and around the Sacramento Mountains where he lived. He engaged in photography as a profession and gained at least part of his income by photographing people and events throughout the Sacramento Mountains. He photographed individuals, families, school children, church groups, logging, ranching, railroading and other community activities. He made his images with a large field camera, producing glass negatives in 4x5, 5x7 and 5x8-inch formats. He operated a studio for a time in Alamogordo, New Mexico - possibly the former studio of his brother-in-law, pioneer photographer A.J. Buck.
Green Edward and Martha divorced in 1925, and he moved to Abilene, Texas, where he worked for Hardin Simmons College for several years before returning to New Mexico.
He died on May 25, 1954 in Las Vegas, New Mexico and was buried in the Lusk Cemetery (aka Miller Flats Cemetery) near Miller Flats along with Martha, his father, and several of his children.
