Calvin Chalmers Miller Memorial
(From The Lenox Time Table - Thursday, November 21, 1935)
Calvin Chalmers Miller, son of Samuel and Jeanette Miller, was born in Rockbridge county, Virginia, on April 21, 1851, and passed away at his home in Maryville, Mo. November 12, 1935.
In 1856, at the age of five years, he came with his parents to Scotland county, Mo. where they settled on a farm one and one half miles southeast of Memphis.
Early in his life Mr. Miller made a profession of his faith in Christ, uniting with the First Presbyterian church of Memphis, Missouri. Later he transferred his membership to the United Presbyterian church of Clearfield, Iowa.
He was married to Mary Estella Snider on November 11, 1890 who preceded him in death, January 1, 1934 two years ago. He is survived by his daughter, Mrs. Nelle Weeda, and two grandsons, Miller and Donald Weeda. Three sisters, Miss Isabel Miller, Mrs. J. M. Neese, and Mrs. A. P. Patterson, four brothers, J. W., James W., S. P., and John F. preceded him in death.
Although he was failing in health, the end came as a shock to his family. Loving hands and medical aid could not stay the hand of death.
Mr. Miller was a man of faith and prayer and could not enter upon any project without asking God’s blessings. As a father, husband and citizen, he had played well his part and has left a Christian impression and influence.
Miller was a former resident of Clearfield, having been in business enterprises here. A few years ago he moved to Bedford with his daughter, and from there to Maryville, where he died.
