Married Mary Honeywell on 11 Mar 1862. Edward died from burns received from the escaping steam of a sawmill boiler.

“...Miller Brothers owned a mill on Gile Creek where they sawed lumber several years 'but when a dam was to be built at Hatfield they moved the machinery there. Ed Miller, father of Harry J. Miller, looked after the saws, belting, etc., as he was the mill-wright, and while cleaning the boiler, was badly scalded. He was brought to his home north of Greenwood but lived only a short time.

This same mill was later moved back to Eaton Center where lumber was sawed, and in 1887 an emery wheel, used for filing saws, burst, a piece striking Lou Rufinot in the chest, killing him. Ben Hyslip also was killed in this mill, being wound upon a shaft when his clothing became caught. Then in 1891 George McConnell Sr., working there, was killed. The water in the boiler got low and when the fireman noticed it, he grabbed a bucket of water and threw it into the firebox that caused an explosion, killing Mr. McConnell instantly. The mill was never repaired and later the ruins burned....” The Hub of Clark County (1853 - 1934)

The girls were daughters of "uncle" John and "aunt" Kate (Catherine nee Halstead) Honeywell, one of the pioneer families of Clark Co. Mary was born in Ottawa, Canada, November 19, 1839. She was married to Edward Miller at Renfrew, Canada in 1862 and in 1869 the family moved to Pennsylvania, where they lived until 1876 when they moved to Clark Co. It was three years later that her husband, who was engaged with his brother Thomas in the sawmill business, was scalded to death by escaping steam from the boiler. She was the mother of four children, three of whom-- Mrs. A. R.(Catherine) Grant of Audubon, Iowa, Hannah and H. J. Miller (see his tribute to his uncle John Charles Miller) are living. Thomas, the fourth child, died in Colorado in 1896, whence the mother had removed on account of his health, two years before. Following this affliction she moved west to live with her two children there.

MILLER, John Charles (2 Jan 1848 – 27 July 1920)

John Charles MILLER, of section 27 Warner Township, was born in Renfrew County, Ontario, Jan 2, 1848, the son of John Miller, a native of England. The latter, a farmer and lumberman by occupation, came with his parents to Ontario when a boy. He spent the first eighteen years thereafter on a farm, and then went to Warren Co, Penn, where he spent ten years in the woods and saw mills. When he left his father, Mr. Miller was twenty-four years old (1872), and had only $15 in money, and he has since risen to his present position by hard work and good management. In 1876 he came to this county, locating on his present farm, where he has also been engaged in lumbering ever since. He farms to raise feed for his stock and teams that he employs in the camps during the winters. The previous winter he ran two camps, but this winter, 1890-91, he has only one, employing about thirty men, besides six four horse teams, sprinkler team, tote team and two or three yoke of cattle. He owns in all about 240 acres of land, 110 of which is cleared.


He also owns a one-half interest in lot 1, city of Greenwood, which consists of forty-five acres, and also a house and lot in the latter place. He was married September 26, 1872, to Elizabeth, (called “Betsy”) daughter of John Honeywell. Almira Elizabeth Honeywell Miller born Nov 6, 1858 in Renfrew Canada, migrated to Warren, PA at age 18 eventually settling on a farm a mile north of Greenwood, Clark Co., WI. They relocated to Seattle, WA in 1899 and she died there during Nov 1918. They have six children: Olive T., Maud M., Lynn H., Gertrude, Bessie B., and Smith. Mr. Miller held the office of Town Treasurer five years, and was also Director of the School Board one term. Religiously, he is a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and politically a Prohibitionist. He remodeled his house in 1887, and he now owns a fine two story frame, 24 x 28 feet, with a wing 18 x 22, and another addition 16 x 26 feet. He has two fine barns, one 36 x 46 feet, twenty-foot posts, and the other 36 x 66 feet, eighteen-foot posts. Biographical History of Clark and Jackson Counties1891 and History Buffs

Mr. Erastus Bowen received word that J.C. Miller had died at his home at Seattle, Wash. Mr. Miller was a former Greenwood, Clark Co, Wis. resident, at one time owner of the Speich farm north of the city. He was also president of the Greenwood State Bank at the time he resided here and was one of the foremost lumbermen of this part of the state. He was seventy-three years old.

For the perusal of his many friends, I am subjoining a brief synopsis of the life and an appreciation of the character of my Uncle John Charles Miller, who died July Twenty Seventh, 1920 at Seattle, Wash. He was born near Renfrew, Canada, Jan. 2, 1847 and at the age of eighteen accompanied his parents to Balltown, Penn., where he assisted his father in logging and milling until about 1870 or 71, shortly afterward forming with his brothers, Edward and Thomas, the firm of Miller Brothers, whose reputation is yet a solid memory in the neighborhood of the old Falconer and Rynd Mills near Warren, Penn. In August, 1876, they removed to the vicinity of Greenwood, Clark Co, Wis., where they engaged in the lumber business until my Father's (Edward Miller) death in (Nov 1) 1879, and for years after, when the firm was dissolved. Uncle Charley, I cannot think of him by any other name, persevered in the face of exceptional difficulties, such as seemed ever the lot of the Wisconsin logger and during the next decade met with the success that ever should be the due of honest, energetic effort but possessing the timber love that is instinct in the born lumberman, he followed the receding forests to Western Washington, where, by judicious investments, he accumulated a fortune undreamed of in the strenuous Wisconsin days, this however, leaving him the same kindly, unassuming personality, untouched by the arrogance and self-sufficiency that so often obtains with possession... and I wish to pay this one tribute as heartfelt as it is inadequate to the Uncle who especially in the crucial years of my young manhood, was the best friend and counselor I ever possessed, other than the gentle Mother who preceded him into the Infinity... I have worked with him in the days of real labor, when accomplishment was the great desire, have cruised with him among the firs that he loved so well, and have gone fishing with him therefore have had opportunities of knowing him that few possessed, and there could not have been a truer friend, a kindlier parent, or a better citizen. This is my tribute to a Genuine Man. May the Great Beneficence give him his reward. Sincerely yours, H. J. Miller (Harry J. Miller, son of Edward and Mary nee Honeywell Miller.)

Miller, Lynn (13 Dec 1878 – 11 Dec 1936)

Lynn Miller was born (son of John C. and Almira Honeywell Miller) on a farm one mile north of Greenwood, now known as the George Speich farm, on Dec 13, 1878. He lived there and went to the Greenwood School until about 1895 or 1896, having spent a year in La Crosse fitting himself for a business career, also during that time. He then migrated to Oregon and settled in Chehalis and entered the lumber industry. In 1905 he left Chehalis and entered the logging and sawmill business with his brother Smith, and father, later buying out his father and continuing until 1914 when he went in for himself on Lake Washington in Portland (s/b Seattle). About 1923 he became identified in various ventures, mostly promoting various industries in and around Seattle and moved to Los Angeles only a few years ago, It was while he was on a trip into southern Arizona prospecting for large gold deposits with Geophysical instruments, when the end came after he had dinner that evening and lay down and went away without even his associate hardly noticing it. That was on Dec. 11th. The funeral was held from the Wee Kirk O’Heather, the little church in Los Angeles where Will Rogers funeral was recently held. He is survived by his wife, two daughters, Elma and Betty, and one son, Lynn Jr., all unmarried.

March 16, 1900: Mrs. J.C. Miller returned Tuesday evening from an extended visit at Neenah and Appleton. She was accompanied by Bride, who is taking a vacation from her studies at Appleton. Gleaner

September 29, 1900: Mrs. J. C. Miller accompanied Mrs. Holley to Stevens Point yesterday. Gleaner

September 29, 1900: Friday was Smith Miller’s last day of school here, as he leaves soon with his parents for Minneapolis where he will enter the Hamlin university. Gleaner

March 1, 1901: Mrs. Will Smith was over from Loyal the first of the week getting their house in readiness for temporary occupancy by her father, J.C. Miller, and family, who, we learn, will live there until they can build a residence of their own. Mrs. Miller arrived yesterday morning from St. Paul and we understand these goods will follow shortly. Gleaner

February 28, 1957: Guess I promised a sequel to that vacation job I had up on the SAWYER Farm near Longwood. This time it was on the WITHEE farm east of Longwood. If I remember correctly there were five of us boys went there from Greenwood to help with the haying. They had a goodly number of cows on that farm too. They were all those big Holsteins and they gave a whole of a lot of milk and were the hardest cows to milk in the world. It was blue milk they gave, if you know what that means. Well, I have forgotten the name of the five boys but there was Bill OELIG, Bendigo HENDRICKSON, (I've forgotten his real first name), a chap by the name of George WISHING and myself. We slept in a large men's room where there were four double beds, one in each corner. Bill and Bendigo slept in one bed just opposite that of the hired man and George and I in the one in the corner just below that of Bill and Bendigo. This hired man was an emigrant from somewhere we could never figure out from what country he could have come from for he resembled no other emigrant we could think of. A great big man, short of stature, heavy set with the strength of two big oxen. His hair stood straight up and his neck was straight from the back of his head to his back indicating, as was usually considered, not much intelligence. Shaggy eyebrows and low forehead and squinty eyes not indicative of any friendliness. He was always coming to bed late and we usually were quite tired and it was not a pleasant thing to be awakened so soon after getting to sleep.

So one day while resting at the end of a swath and leaning on the sythe snaths we concocted the idea of planting some large thistle bulbs under his bed sheet. I can't remember now just how we figured this would hurry his bedtime but anyway we did it that evening. Of course that evening we didn't fall off to sleep at all..... and finally he came shuffling up the stairs with not too light a step and soon he was peeling off his clothes then he hit the bed right square on top of those thistles. If you have ever heard the commotion set up by about ten big bulls, this was a very good compliment of the same, and he just floated out of that bed and landed about ten feet away right beside Bill and Bendigo's bed. We thought he’d tear into them but he didn't. He seemed to have some kind of a grudge against George Wishing and proceeded to mop up on him. We heard him apparently messing around with his trousers and then he came over to our bed with his arms raised high and yelling down at us and said, George Wishington, I’m going to kill you , and we could see a reflection of light from a kind harvest moon shining through the window onto a very large knife. Our life span was at a very low ebb right then, when suddenly we heard something like a hammer hitting flesh and this man..... sagged at the knees and he was out like a doorknob. Of course we immediately relieved his clenched hand of that dirk and then looked to see what happened. Bill Oelig had heaved that big shoe of his at him and it hit him just behind the ear.....he didn't come to until he was immersed with some nice cold water. He was then docile enough and took his blanket and went out and spent the night in the haymow and the last thing we saw of him was the next morning (not waiting for breakfast) trudging down the road toward Longwood and beyond. Smith H. Miller (LaConner, WA) Greenwood Gleaner There are more stories by Smith Miller on this site.

Feb. 25, 1906: Mr. J. E. Noyes, Editor, Greenwood Wis., Dear Sir: I note that in your last issue that you have me left “in a trough.” Now, I don’t hardly agree with you there for I consider myself the only one of the family left “out of the trough.” You see when one gets married they are in a trough and can’t get out so have to follow it to the end and sometimes it is pretty crooked and bumpy too. I haven’t as yet, however, made up my mind to take a step into it for it is a pretty risky gamble. Trusting this finds you well and prosperous, I remain Very respectfully, Smith H. Miller Wenatchee, Wash., Greenwood Gleaner (8 Mar 1906) Our recent reference to Smith Miller being left to dance in the trough alone. Thanks sooo much for this little "Smitty" blurb!! We LOVE it! My grandfather finally jumped into the "trough" on Feb. 22 1909 in Seattle Washington with Maude Looney Miller, formerly of Lafayette Co., WI, residing at the time in Chehalis WA!! They were married over 50 years before death parted them in 1965, here in Woodinville, WA. Thank you again and again. (Now, could you find an obit for Hannah Miller, Mrs John Miller, mother of Edward, Thomas, JC, and William Miller ~~ She passed in Sept of 1900 at the home of William Miller family, we believe.)

The following is a clipping from the Tacoma, Wash. Daily News of Feb. 23, 1912 about former Greenwood people: “Seldom in the west, with its shifting population, do 40 relatives gather at one table. Yet such was the case last night at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Lynn H. Miller, North 37th and Stevens Street, when family connections traveled from all parts of the state to reunite. So successful was the reunion that it was decided to make it an annual affair. The families present were Mr. and Mrs. J.C. Miller of Seattle and Mrs. J.F. Alexander of Seattle, with her husband, Dr. Alexander. Mr. and Mrs. Smith Miller and daughter Jean of Ashford; Messrs. Harold and Jerold Smith and Miss Elodie Smith, Wenatchie; Mr. and Mrs. Harry J. Miller and son Seton of Everett; Mr. and Mrs. William Miller and two sons, Marshall and Robert of South Prairie; Miss Eva Miller, Chester Miller, Skykomish; Wm. Miller, Seattle; Mr. and Mrs. Smith Honeywell and son Sewlitt of Centralia; Mr. and Mrs. Ira Honeywell, Centralia; Chas. Honeywell, Minneapolis; Mr. and Mrs. Norman Gilkey, Centralia; Mr. and Mrs. Dan Bush and Miss Lucile ?, Chehalis; Will and Lynn Smith, Wenatchee; Valen Honeywell, Chehalis; Judge W.W. Langhorne, prominent Tacoma attorney; and the host and hostess and two daughters, Mr. and Mrs. Lynn Miller and Elizabeth." Greenwood Gleaner 03/28/1912

May 31, 1928: Some dismay was created recently when the members of the school board
discovered that the flag pole on the school grounds, which is claimed to be the tallest in
Wisconsin, was rotting and had to be felled. About a year ago the board had the pole inspected closely and the decay was found to be in progress about one-third of the way around the base. The wood was treated to stop the decay and guy wires were strung to keep the pole from striking the buildings if a storm should snap it off. Last week the pole was felled and about 10 feet were cut from the base end. On Saturday the pole was again erected and this time was placed a little west from its former location. The flag pole is a Douglas fir and was 150 feet high before it was taken down. It was shipped from Seattle, Wash. as the gift of a former mayor of the city. The Charles Miller family lived in this vicinity until they moved to Washington about 26 years ago, to go into the lumber business. Lynn, a son, picked out a tall fir and waited until he had a lumber shipment bound for Withee, Wis. Then when the time came to load the pole on top of three flat cars of lumber, it was too long, so Miller had to cut it in two so that it could be spliced and sent it along. Although the pole was a gift, the city had to pay 300 to have it hauled the 13 miles from Withee on wagons and set in place. A six-foot slab of stone was embedded nine feet under ground as a base and the pole was mounted on this and set in solid concrete. It was topped by a spread eagle weather vane two and one-half feet high. Although the pole is now somewhat shorter it still remains to be one of the tallest in the state and should stand for 25 years more.
