He engaged in the mercantile and produce business for twenty-one years, and February 15, 1879, came to Batavia and entered the Bank of Batavia as cashier, which position he still holds. In 1865 he married Cecelia G., daughter of Jacob Wiggins; they have one son, Wheaton S. Miller. Mr. Miller was supervisor of Byron four years, from 1868 to 1871.
