Miller Family Monroe Miller's grandfather, Kitts Miller, came to America from Germany after he was grown. He served in the Colonial Army, in the War for Independence. He married and located in Meigs County, Ohio. He remained there a few years, then crossed the river and bought land below the mouth of Mill Creek. He raised a large family of children, of whose names I find: "Becky" Miller, married Charlie Shinn, who was an uncle of George Shinn, who lived on Grass Lick. Charles Shinn lived on Cow Run. Nancy Miller, married Washington Rader, who was a son of Michael Rader, Jr. Wash Rader sold goods for Nehemiah Smith in the first store in Reedy, in 1841. Lewis Miller, married Lydia Sayre, whose parents lived in Meigs County, Ohio. He later married Elizabeth (Betsy) Shinn, whose parents were native of Meigs County, Ohio, but who had settled on Mill Creek. Lewis Miller was for several years a member of the County court of Jackson County. His children, by his first wife: Rosalie, Perry, Hampton, and Monroe. By his second wife: Warren, Leander, Columbus, and Sarah E. Monroe Miller, the oldest son of Lewis Miller, was in 1905, a widower of seventy, and talked of "going west to grow up with the country." He laughingly told me there was no chance for him to get married here, as he was related to nearly all the women and girls on both sides of the river for many miles, they being of Sayre descent. Warren Miller was for a time in Athens University. He studied law, and was admitted to the Bar in 1871. He was Mayor of Ripley in 1884, was Prosecuting Attorney from 1880 until 1884. He also served in the House of Delegates, State Senate and Congress. The first settler at Buffalo was Joe Miller, who married Caroline Parsons. Afterward, he lived on the Davis farm, on the Right Fork of Reedy, above Greenbrier, being the first settler there. This sketch taken from "Pioneers of Jackson County", by John House, it appears in the section "Lower Mill Creek
