John Miller, father to 12 children, died on September 13, 1925 at Marshall, Lyon, Minnesota at 78 years old. He was born on March 1, 1847 at Lisbon, St Lawrence, New York. John's partner was Sarah Rodenberger. John's partner was Sarah Rodenberger, and they gave birth to Jennie Ethel (Miller) Morgan, Hattie Belle Miller, Esther Anna Miller, Edith Olive Miller, Alfred Erastes Miller, John Knoble "Jack" Miller, Franklin Andrew Miller, Herbert Andrew Miller, Charles Henry Miller, Emma Mae Miller, Darwood Belmont Miller, and Joseph Miller.

Refresh this page to see various historical events that occurred during John's lifetime.

In 1847, in the year that John Miller was born, on July 1st, the first official postage stamps were issued in the US (not in the world - that was the UK). They were a nickel and a dime and showed Ben Franklin and George Washington.

In 1858, by the time he was only 11 years old, on October 28th, Macy's department store opened in New York City. Founded by Rowland Hussey Macy, it was at first a dry goods store - essentially a store that sold textiles, ready-to-wear clothing, and sundries

In 1864, by the time he was 17 years old, on June 15th, Arlington National Cemetery was created in Arlington Virginia. 200 acres from the grounds of Robert E. Lee's home were set aside to be a military cemetery. The home and grounds had been in Lee's wife's family - she was a great-granddaughter of Martha Washington.

In 1876, at the age of 29 years old, John was alive when on February 14th, Alexander Graham Bell applied for a patent for the telephone. So did Elisha Gray. A month later, on March 7th, Bell was granted the patent and on the 10th, he made his first successful telephone call - in which he said: "Mr. Watson, come here, I want to see you."

In 1925, in the year of John Miller's passing, in July, the Scopes Trial - often called the Scopes Monkey Trial - took place, prosecuting a substitute teacher for teaching evolution in school. Tennessee had enacted a law that said it was "unlawful to teach human evolution in any state-funded school". William Jennings Bryan headed the prosecution and Clarence Darrow headed the defense. The teacher was found guilty and fined $100. An appeal to the Supreme Court of Tennessee upheld the law but overturned the guilty verdict.
