The Oklahoman, Oct 23, 1944:
--John H. Miley, Attorney, Died--
John Henry Miley, 66, attorney, of 733 NE 19, former justice of the state Supreme Court, and assistant attorney general of Oklahoma, died Sunday morning at University Hospital. He had been in failing health for a year but had remained at his work until July.

Miley returned to private life in 1919. He specialized, after discovery of the Oklahoma City field, in oil litigation and has acted as attorney for a number of corporations in Oklahoma City. Probably his most important legal triumph was his successful defense of proration laws, especially as applied in the city field against the attack of Champlin Refining Company.

Survivors include his wife, Mrs Cora M. Miley, 733 NE 19; a daughter, Mrs William Taylor Harney, Kansas City, MO; a son, Lieutenant William H. Miley, stationed in the Judge Advocate General's Dept at Washington, DC.

Services will be in charge of the Guardian Funeral Home, awaiting the arrival of the son from Washington, DC.
