DAVID MILLER passed his boyhood in Porter county, Indiana and learned the trade of carpentry there.
In May 1861 he enlisted in Company II Ninth Regiment Indiana Volunteer Infantry which was under command of Colonel Milroy. After three months service mostly in West Virginia the regiment re enlisted and was sent to Virginia where it became a part of the Army of Virginia and participated in the fights at Greenbrier and Buffalo Mountain and in other engagements in Virginia. Later the regiment was included in the Department of Tennessee and there took part in the fighting at Cumberland and in the historic two days fight at Shiloh April 6 and 7 1862 where he received a gunshot wound in the left hand which disabled him so that he was sent home to Indiana on a furlough. He rejoined his regiment in Tennessee and was soon wounded again and sent to a hospital at Chattanooga where he remained for some time. After he rejoined his regiment again he took part in the battles at Franklin and Nashville. From Tennessee the regiment was ordered to Victoria Texas where it was mustered out of the service October 1865.
Returning to Indiana he was shortly afterward married to Miss Helen R Brayton of Kendallville that state. Four children were born of this marriage Everett M, Mabel C, Falley B, deceased, and Helen B.
