Jesse Samuel "James" Miller
Birth: 1847
Elk Lick Township
Somerset County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Oct. 27, 1884
Fayette County
Pennsylvania, USA

Killed with son by an explosion of Fire Damp, smothered and slightly burned, in the Youngstown Mine, Oct. 27, 1884. See website:

Obituary from The Commercial; Meyersdale, PA dated 31 October 1884:
The remains of Jesse Miller and son, Irvin, who were both suffocated in the Youngstown mines on Monday evening, were brought here on Wednesday, the funeral services taking place at the residence of Mr. George Donges, whose wife and Mrs. Miller are sisters. Jesse Miller was born in Elk Lick and owns property in this town. There are, we believe, eight children, mostly small. He was a member of Lowry Post, No. 214, G.A.R., and of the German Baptist church of this place. Great sympathy is felt for the bereaved.
