Danial Millinger
"German Hermit"

Born around 1847
Died about 16 June 1911

Danial Millinger was a German that moved to Baxter County around 1905 when he purchased a small place in the hills on the North Fork River about three and a half miles southeast of the mouth of the stream. He talked as little as possible and lived the life of a recluse, and he sought the friendship of none. His body was found in late July 1911 where it had been dragged by wild animals. One newspaper article indicated that "The body was entirely perished away and the skin was dried up and apparently grown to the bone." It was also reported that "The varmints had dragged the body from the bed, supposed after death, and had eaten a portion of it and badly mangled him up. Even after the corpse was found it had be kept closely guarded to keep the varmints away."
