Death: Nov. 8, 1915

Samuel P. Miller was born near LaGrange, Ind., Nov. 18, 1857; died very suddenly at his late home near Surrey, N.D., Nov. 8, 1915; aged 57 y. 11 m 20 d. At the age of 14 he moved with his parents to Hickory Co., Mo., the journey at that early age being made overland and by team. Bro. Miller was in charge of one. On Dec. 25, 1880, he was united in marriage with Sister Katie Reber, also of Hickory Co., Mo. To this union were born 5 sons and 3 daughters at follows: Rosa L. King, Susanna Kauffman, J. Annie, Daniel W., Minnie M. Glick, Christian R., Samuel E., and Otto J. Bro. Miller united with the Church of his choice in early life, remaining a consistent and faithful member until death; a man of peaceful disposition and willing to exercise his God-given talent, therefore often engaged in teaching a Sunday school class. On June 13, 1915, he was chosen to the office of deacon and ordained to serve the congregation known as the Fairview Mennonite Church near Surrey, N.D., which office he faithfully and ably filled the few months he was permitted to do so. In 1890 he moved with his family to Johnson Co., Mo. In 1894 to Oklahoma, in 1900 to Cass Co., Mo., in 1908 to Oscoda Co., Mich., and in spring of 1914 to Surrey, N.D., where he had won many friends; shown by the number gathered to show the last tribute of respect when his body was lowered into the grave. Preparations were made to move to another farm the following day of Bro. Miller's death, but his move was to another house.
The funeral was held on Nov. 12. Services at the house by the writer and at the church by the brethren, D. B. Kauffman, and L. A. Kauffman of Kenmare, N. D. Text, Phil. 1:21. The death of Bro. Miller was the first in the family, but he was permitted to see the whole family members of the Church. Besides a sorrowing wife and 8 children, and 14 grandchildren, there are many who feel the loss of Sunday school teacher, a worker in the Church, and a friend in the community. All the children were present at the funeral except Susanna and J. Annie, who had been called home to mother's bedside a few months ago. Christian and Samuel Reber of Mo., brothers of Sister Miller, attended the funeral. While we deeply feel the loss of our brother just at this time, we want to say, "God's Will be done"
