DEATH OF JACOB D. MILLER
Jacob D. Miller, an old soldier and an old resident of Muscatine, died last evening o pneumonia at his home, 1112 East Eight street. He had been ailing for the last four weeks, and although about a week ago, had seemed much better, and was expected to recover, yet he suffered an unfortunate relapse last Sunday. The end came very quietly last night at 8 o’clock while he was sitting in a chair, to which he had been helped with the hope that breath might be easily be drawn.
He was born in York, Pa., March 30, 1832, and was thus a few months over 66 years of age. In 1856 he came to Muscatine, which has ever since been his home.
Mr. Miller responded to the call for volunteers at the beginning of the civil war and gained for himself an excellent record all through that memorable struggle. He was a member of Co. F, 8th Iowa regiment.
Mr. Miller’s death is mourned by a wife and seven children, as follows: William F., Mrs. Murray Wheeler, Charles J., George A., Henry M., Mrs. Kate Stortz and Louis N. Two sisters and one brother also survive him in the old home in Pennsylvania.
The funeral will be held from the home next Monday morning at 10 o’clock. – Dec. 22, 1898 (hand written)--
