Miller, Frederick (MAY 1861 - 20 DEC 1929)

The death of Frederick Miller, one of the older settlers of the town of Green Grove, Clark County, Wis., but the last few years a resident of the village of Curtiss, Clark County, came as a shock to him many friends Friday morning. The deceased was apparently in good health until a few days ago and was at the Marshfield Hospital when the end came. He was born in Germany and came to this vicinity when this section was first settle. He attained the age of sixty-five years and seven months. The funeral was held at the Green Grove Church on Monday afternoon, the Rev. M. C. Goetsch officiating, interment taking place in the Green Grove Cemetery. His wife preceded him in death three years ago, and he leaves to mourn a son, Fred, on the home farm, a daughter, Mrs. Harry Jentz of Unity, and three stepdaughters, Mrs. Lueloff of Colby, Mrs. Charles Marquardt of Green Grove and Mrs. R. Neuman of Unity.

He was a highly respected citizen and neighbor and will be sadly missed. He came to this vicinity when this country was still one vast wilderness, but built a fine farm by hard work and how much this community owes him and such as he is hard to estimate. He had borne adversity bravely and enjoyed prosperity quietly, was a good Christian and filled the various relations of life as son, husband, father, brother, friend and filled them well and kindly. But now he is gone and another name is stricken from the ever lessening roll of our old settlers.
