Nathan Miller, son of Nathaniel and Ruth (Chase) Miller, was born in Rehoboth, Mass., August 1, 1727, and died in Warwick, R. I., October 18, 1815, in his eighty-ninth year. Under his father's will he inherited the latter's house and lands in Providence, R. I., but his residence was in Warwick, where he was most probably a farmer. His gravestone in the Baptist Hill Cemetery in East Greenwich, R I., calls him Captain Nathan Miller. Nathan Miller was married, in Swansea, Mass., February 3, 1750-51, by Elder Job Mason, to Robey Salisbury, of Swansea, where she was born July 17, 1732, daughter of Ephraim and Rosamond Salisbury. She died in Warwick, R. I., July 11, 1826, and was buried beside her husband, the stone reading 'Robey Miller, widow Capt. Nathan Miller, who died July 11, 1826, in her 94th year.' Nathan Miller's will, dated June 8, 1815, was proved October 28th following. He served with the Rhode Island troops in the American Revolution, with the rank of captain in Colonel John Waterman's regiment. At the Rhode Island Historical Society, filed as Military Paper No. 25, is an original pay abstract of Captain Squire Millard's company, in Colonel Waterman's regiment, covering the period from December 4, 1776, to January 9, 1777. Nathan Miller is among those named in the paper. Mention of his name is also found in 'Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors in the War of the Revolution.' (from History of the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations: Biographical; NY: The American Historical Society, Inc. 1920)
