Obituary

News was received by telephone yesterday of the death of William Miller, an old and well-known resident of Wilmington. He had been ill with grip, was taken worse a day or two before, and his death took place Thursday forenoon. He was a farmer by occupation, but had lived of late years with his daughter, Mrs. Wm. Vogel. His farm was bought by the Wilmington Forest and Stream club for their preserve. He leaves six children, three of whom, Mrs. Vogel, Mrs. Della Winchester and Horace Miller, live in Wilmington. The other three, Herbert Miller, Mrs. T. W. Keating and Mrs. C. E. Stearns, live in Brooklyn, N. Y. Mr. Miler's age was about 75. His funeral will be held on Sunday at the Universalist church.
