Miller, Jacob H., son of Peter and Catherine (Feterly) Miller, was born in Warren, Herkimer county, N. Y., January
1, 1841. His grandfather, also named Jacob, was the first settler of the hamlet of Miller's Mills in that county.
Mr. Miller was educated in the common schools of Herkimer and Otsego counties, and at a very early age began to
take care of himself; he has been the architect of his own fortunes. In 1862 he enlisted in the 121st N. Y. Volunteers
and served three years, participating in the battles of South Mountain, Antietam, Chancellorsville, and Fredericksburg.
In 1868 he bought the Moses Scouten farm in the town of Cazenovia, four and one half miles north of the village.
This farm is now managed by his son, William. Mr. Miller is well known in this section as a man of integrity and
a representative farmer. He retired in 1898 and took up his residence in Syracuse. In politics he has been a consistent
Republican, but has never sought or held public office. He married in 1866, Amanda Dagger, daughter of Valentine
Dayger of German Flats, Herkimer county, N. Y. Of this union there are four children: Emma, wife of Oscar Mann
of Cazenovia; Mary, William, and Nettie J.
