“Died, Monday evening May 11, 1885 at his residence in Jackson twp. Enos Miller in the 70th year of his age. Mr. Miller was born August 12, 1815 in Summerset county, PA and was married July 15, 1841, to Rufa A. Switzer of OH. Having lived over 43 years of married life in IA, in Guthrie County, and in Jackson township for 33 years has been a member of Church of God for 50 years. The fruit of their marriage was eight children, six of whom are now living. He is the grandparent of 24 children, all living about him to comfort him in his last hours of affliction, the disease bore his affliction and suffering with the greatest christian fortitude, he was a man of who stood high in the estimation of his neighbors and a faithful servant in his church. He is missed as a companion, a father, a friend, a neighbor and a Christian worker. Thus has passed away one of Jackson townships most worthy and beloved citizen. He was sensible until the last and often made the remark during his sufferings “how good the lord was to him,” and died with assurance that all was well with him and sang songs of praise as long as he could hold out. It is appointed once onto man to die, said He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, heaven is the treasury of everlasting joy, infinite degree and endless in duration. He who builds his towers on the duties of today receive the rewards of his father which is in heaven. The funeral ceremonies were the most solemn it has been one lot to witness. Services by Revs. Mullen and Brower at Glendon. O.P. Miller very tenderly and carefully waited upon his father in his fatal illness. Such devotions always honor the person bestowing it.
