The funeral of John Miller, a late veteran of the Civil War, and a member of the Grand Army of the Republic , was largely attended by his numerous relatives, citizen of this place, and members of Col. William Greenwood Post of Putney. Rev. P. F. Barnard of Westminster, late pastor of the church of Dummerston attended the funeral and was assisted by Rev. L. C. Kimball and Rev. Mr. Mitchell of Putney on the part of the Grand Army Post .
