The author of "The Miller Family" sketch, Oscar G. Miller is George Miller's great grandfather.

The following is quoted from Oscar;

"About the year 1824 my great grandfather moved to Decatur County, IN. This was when his youngest son Joseph was quite young. Soon after he settled he established a church and schoolhouse and burying ground on his farm. The church is now known by the name of Shiloh and stood about five miles northwest of Greensburg, Decatur County, Indiana. He was a man of limited education and signed his name with difficulty although he could read and enjoyed a few religious books which were in his scanty library. The Bible was his chief source of comfort and consolation."
