Mr Mills began his pastoral work when he was ordained at Bloomingburg, Sullivan County, in May 1843."REV. SAMUEL W. MILLS, D.D. 1902

Rev. Dr. Samuel W. Mills died, Thursday night, at his home in Port Jervis, from the affects of an attack of apoplexy sustained several days before. Deceased was born in the town of Wallkill, near Scotchtown, five miles north of Middletown, on the fifth of April, 1820, and was a son of Samuel and Esther Stitt Mills.
He was therefore 82 years of age. Dr. Mills was the ninth in the family of children and remained at home until reaching the age of fifteen when he entered Rutgers College, at New Brunswick, N.J., from which he was graduated in the class of '88 at the age of eighteen. He studied Theology in the Theological Seminary of the Reformed Church at New Brunswick, and was graduated in 1842. In 1874 the degree of D.D., was conferred by the college.
The Reformed Church at Bloomingburgh was Dr. Mills' first charge and he served as its pastor from 1843 to 1858. He then accepted a call to the Reformed Church at Port Jervis where his pastorate continued for 14 years, terminating in 1872, when he resigned. During his ministry at Port Jervis a new church was built at a cost of $44,000, and 249 members were received into the congregation. Since resigning the pastorate Dr. Mills has lived a retired life in Port Jervis.
Deceased is survived by his widow, who was Miss Almeda J., daughter of Nathaniel Bailey, of Middletown, and by one son, Dr. T. D. Mills, of Middletown, and two daughters, Mrs. C.E. Cuddeback, of Port Jervis, and Mrs. J. Alex Stitt, of Brooklyn."
