NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH MILLER CEMETERY IN SPRING VALLEY, BUREAU CO., IL!!
The land belonged to David Searl Miller and was used for burial purposes from about 1840 to 1894. There were as many as 100 graves. When highway 29 was being constructed in 1918, flat gravestones were used as a flooring for the cook's tent. The cemetery was literally pushed back to it's present position and in the process many graves lost. In 1959 the cemetery was used as a sheep pasture. The cemetery was rededicated after a clean-up project in May 2000.
