Miller Pullen

Obituary of Houston H. Miller, Murray, Kentucky.

Houston H. Miller, member of H. B. Lyon Camp, Murray, Ky., answered to the last roll call July 1, 1916, at his home, near that place. Comrade Miller was a noted man in many respects. He volunteered in the 1st Kentucky Regiment of Infantry and served twelve months around Richmond, Va. When his time of service was out, he went home for a very short time, then joined the 2d Kentucky Cavalry in August, 1862. He served in that regiment until the latter part of 1864, when he, with several other members of his company was selected as escort for President Davis, and just before they surrendered President Davis called them together and gave them $60 in gold to pay their way home.

Comrade Miller leaves six children, three sons and three daughters, all splendid citizens. His wife died several years ago. He served his county for some time as a teacher and as assessor. He was loved by all who knew him.

P. P. Pullen.
