Dr. Henry Smith Miller

At his home, 18 Sibley Place Rochester, February 23d, 1920, occurred the death of Dr. Henry Smith Miller. Dr. Miller was a son of the late Rev. George B. Miller of Hartwick Seminary, who for many years was the Principal of Theology in that Institution but who has been dead for over fifty years.

Dr. H. S. Miller was born in the Old Miller Mansion at Hartwick Seminary, March 17th, 1837. After attaining his education he was the Assistant to Dr. E. P. Byram, one of the leading dentists of Cooperstown, who has been long since dead. He completed his Dental Education under Dr. Byram and then started south before the war and was in Kentucky when the war broke out. He had to leave all his equipment and hurry north. Since 1865 he had lived continuously in Rochester, having retired from active practice some ten years ago still taking much interest in matters pertaining to the profession of dentistry. He it was who was one of the chief men to start the New York State Dental Society and only a year ago was at the fiftieth anniversary of that society.

Dr. Miller was one of thirteen children of Dr. G. B. Miller and Delia B. Miller (Snyder), he being the third from the youngest. Two sisters are still living, one Mrs. H. S. Hiller, wife of the Rev. Alfred Hiller who died only January 26th, last at Hartwick Seminary at the age of eighty-nine years, and Mrs. Mary C. Uebelacker, who resides in Morristown, N. J., one being in her eightysixth year and the last in her eighty-first year.

Dr. Miller leaves a wife and four sons to mourn his loss. He would have been eighty-three had. he lived to March 17th. Of this Miller family of thirteen children and the parents, all but four have lived to be in their seventy-second year to one who was in her ninety-second year. Six of the number have entered their 80th and more. Truly a family of longevity.

The funeral took place from his late residence and his four sons and two nephews acted as pall bearers, one being the Rev. George B. Miller of Hartwick Seminary and Dr. J. G. English of Detroit, Michigan, and he was taken to Mt. Hope cemetery to rest in. that beautiful place of the dead. Dr. Miller was an uncle to the late Past Surgeon General George Miller Sternberg late of Washington
