Excerpt from A Standard History of Ross County - Vol. 2, pg. 738-740:

"Isaac W. Miller, father of Mrs. Vaughan, was born in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, and for many years followed farming. When quite a young man he took up the profession of auctioneer, and he followed that for years, crying sales in Vinton and adjoining counties. He is now living retired at Wilkesville in Vinton County, where he served as justice of the peace. He married Sarah A. Booth, a daughter of Hiram and Minerva (Mannering) Booth."

The account of George W. Miller (son of Isaac W. and Sarah Booth Miller) in Hanging Rock Iron Region, pages 1157 - 1158, says that Isaac W. Miller was a son of Beatty Miller - this is an error. Isaac W. Miller's death certificate lists his father as Thomas Miller, born in Pennsylvania, and Elizabeth Smith, born in Pennsylvania. George W. Miller's death certificate states that he was the son of I. W. Miller, who was born in Beaverstown, PA, and Sarah Booth who was born in Wilkesville, OH. Below is the excerpt as it pertains to Isaac W. Miller:

"His parents are Isaac W. and Sarah A. (Boothe) Miller, the former a native of Pennsylvania and a son of Beatty Miller. Beatty Miller married in Pennsylvania, and when his son Isaac was quite young moved to Ohio, locating in the Wilkesville community of Vinton County, where he and his wife spent the rest of their days. He was past eighty and she past ninety-four when they died. Their influence went to promote the activities of the local Presbyterian Church and in politics he was a republican."

"Isaac W. Miller is one of five sons and two daughters, and all of them except Isaac, who is the youngest, were soldiers in the Civil War. Most of these children are still living. Isaac W. Miller grew up in the Wilkesville community, attended school there, and met and married Sarah A. Boothe. She was born in Ohio and belonged to an old Ohio family of pioneers in Vinton County. Since their marriage Isaac W. Miller and wife spent most of their years in Vinton County, where he was an active farmer and for some years a merchant and hotel proprietor. He is now living retired at Wilkesville at the age of seventy- eight, while his wife is seventy-four. Both have continued the allegiance of their respective families by membership in the Presbyterian Church, and as a republican he has been honored several times by local office. The children of Isaac W. Miller and wife are: Thomas S., who is now in business at Columbus and has three children; Jennie A., wife of N. A. Vaughan, a furniture dealer and undertaker at Adelphia, and they have five children; Mamie B. is the wife of Charles Ogden, who has a large 500-acre farm and is principally engaged in stock raising at Dyesville in Meigs County, Ohio, and their family consists of two sons; Catherine A. is the wife of Charles A. Wells, their son Brown W. is head chemist for the Buckeye Steel Castings Company at Columbus; Elizabeth first married Raulson Davidson of Columbus, who died leaving a son and daughter, and she is now the wife of Pearson Ranck, and still lives at Columbus."
