Henry Miller was born, reared and educated in Alsace, Germany, and was there engaged in farming until 26 years of age, when he came to this country, landing at New Orleans, Louisiana, where he remained for a number of years, subsequently moving to Jay County, Indiana. Mr. Miller was married to Margaret Stoltz, a native of Germany, who came to America with her father, Nicholas Stoltz, a well known farmer of Jay County, Indiana. Mr. Miller and his wife became the parents of five children, as follows: Frederick, George, Adam, Charles and William, all of whom are married and live in Jay County, with the exception of Frederick, the subject of this sketch. Mr. and Mrs. Miller are also residents of Jay County, Indiana, residing on a farm.

When 18 years of age, in 1888, he spent one year at the experimental station at Purdue University, Indiana. He returned home for a time and in the fall of 1890 entered the Chicago Veterinary College, from which he was graduated March 24, 1891, when he was just 21 years old. He opened an office in Fort Recovery in May, 1891, and has since been successfully engaged in the practice of his profession. In 1903 he erected the Miller veterinary hospital in Fort Recovery. Mr. Miller also owns a fine stock farm of 30 acres in Recovery township, where he raises blooded horses; he takes great pride in his stallions.
