Obituary

The death of James D. Miller, formerly of this city, occurred on January 10 in Philadelphia, at the age of 75 years. Death was due to heart failure. Mr. Miller was a well known resident of Burlington many years ago, being a musician of local note, and a member of some of the older bands and orchestras. On June 21, 1861, he enlisted with the 3rd regiment band, joining from Richmond, was mustered into service July 16 1861, and discharged August 9, 1862. He is survived by two sons, Albert Miller of Philadelphia, and Charles Miller of Springfield, Mass., and by one daughter, Mrs. Harry Reed of New York. The remains will reach the city this morning, and the burial will be in Elmwood avenue cemetery at 10 o'clock Wednesday morning, beside the remains of his wife and five children.
