Obituary of Edward Hall Miller, Los Angeles, California.

Edward Hall Miller was born in Wilson County, Tenn., January 25, 1842, and grew to manhood on the farm. He joined the Confederate army in Nashville, Tenn., in April, 1861, at the age of nineteen, and became a member of McCann's Company, 11th Tennessee Regiment. He was in the battles of Stones River and Chickamauga, where he was captured, being held prisoner at Rock Island for eighteen months.

After the war Comrade Miller went into business in Nashville, and in that city was married to Miss Millie Hunt in December, 1865. To them four sons and a daughter were born, two sons having died before him. The surviving children are residents of Los Angeles, Cal., where he died on September 22, 1922, after an illness of several weeks. One brother is left of his family, now living in Nashville, Tenn., at the age of eighty-eight years.

Comrade Miller took his family to California in 1887, and had since made his home in Los Angeles. He was a loyal Mason of fifty-one years; had taken all the degrees and was an officer in Lodge 42, of Los Angeles, for many years. He was also a devoted member of Camp No. 770, U. C. V., of Los Angeles, and faithful to the last. The funeral was conducted by G. B. Russell, Chaplain of the Pacific Coast Division, U. C. V., with the members of his Masonic Lodge.

A devoted husband and father, loyal friend, and progressive citizen, Comrade Miller leaves a heritage of good deeds and an influence in his community that will not pass away.

(G. B. Russell.)
