Frederick J. Millener, ticket agent and telegraph operator at the Erie depot, was born in Corning, N. Y., February
18, 1866, where he attended school and received an academic education. He married, January 13, 1888, Lizzie A.,
daughter of Andrew and Catherine Sawtell, of Mount Morris, and they have a son, Harry, born October 15, 1888. Mr.
Millener comes from a noted family, numbering among his ancestors many who have lived to the age of 100 years and
over, among whom were his great-great grandfather (a soldier of 1776) and grandmother. Many of their children lived
to be nearly 90 years of age. The father of Frederick J., Alexander H., is living in Rochester, and has been connected
with the Erie Railroad for 32 years. Alexander H., son of James C., has brothers and sisters living as follows:
Sarah, of Missouri; Lucy, of Cayuga County; Eugenie, an experienced and practical nurse; Eliza, widow of G. C.
Stone, of Auburn; and Isaac B., a noted sculptor and manager of the business of John Matthews, of Melbourne, Australia.
Three of his brothers died young. The trade of boat building is a prominent feature of the Millener family, Alexander
H. and his sons, at Port Byron and Rochester, having been extensively engaged in that business, Joel P., one of
the sons, having built 53 canal boats in 52 weeks at Rochester. He was buried at Rochester, where a monument in
Mount Hope marks his grave.
