History

John Miller was born about 1811. He received a grant of land near Bathurst, in Gloucester County, New Brunswick, and took up farming there prior to 1861. Both he and his wife Rebecca were Methodists of Irish origin. They had at least six children: Mary Ann, Letitia, Richard, Samuel, John, E. Susan, and Rebecca Emma. John Miller died sometime between 1871 and 1891.

His son John Miller (b. ca. 1851) inherited the family farm after his father's death. John Miller, Jr. married Lizzie Gammon in 1881, and they had no fewer than three children, including Arthur and Jean. Miller was active in the community, serving as secretary of the district 13 school board, road commissioner, a justice of the peace, secretary of the Methodist church, a county councillor, and as county warden. He was also a member of the Bathurst Lodge of the British Templars. John Miller, Jr. and his wife Lizzie were still active in 1931.
