Death of George W. Miller Reported to Have Followed an Injury


With the arrival at 8:17 o'clock this evening of relatives from Felton, Del., accompanying here the body of George W. MILLER, details of the death of the former Johnstowner will be learned. The first meager news was only of his death Saturday. A relative received a letter the latter part of last week stating that Mr. MILLER was unconscious as a result of an injury received when he was thrown from a fractious colt, and it has been assumed that this injury was responsible for his death.

The body will be taken to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel J. ROSE, of 835 Ash street. Funeral services will be held at 10 o'clock Wednesday morning in Beulah United Evangelical Church in Dale, the cortege leaving the ROSE home at 9:30. Burial will be in the Singer Cemetery. The Dale Council No. 642, Jr. O. U. A. M., of which Mr. MILLER was one of the oldest members, will carry out its burial rites, and a large number of the members will attend the obsequies.

George W. MILLER was a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Ephraim MILLER. He was born June 2, 1863, in Center County, although his parents in the later years of their life resided here. He and Miss Barbara ROSE were united in marriage 27 years ago. She survives. No children were born to their union. Mr. and Mrs. MILLER lived for a number of years in Dale, later removing to Elim, where they lived until about five years ago, when they purchased a farm near Felton, Del. Daniel J. ROSE to whose home the body will be brought, is a brother of Mrs. MILLER.

Besides the relatives mentioned, Mr. MILLER is survived by five sisters and one brother, including John MILLER, of Rosedale; Mrs. William CHASE, of Ash street, and Mrs. Robert KEITH, of Walnut Grove.
