John S. Miller, 79 years old, a prominent farmer living south of Pea Ridge, died Friday night after a long illness. Mr. Miller underwent a major operation some six weeks ago and had recovered from the effects of the operation but his advanced age and weakened condition made his recovery doubtful. He is survived by his widow and five sons:
Norman Miller of Atlanta, Ga.; Lee and Meade Miller of Dallas, Texas; Hurley Miller of California and Firm Miller of Kansas, and by two daughters, Gladys Miller of Pocatello, Idaho and Eulala Miller, who is assistant to county superintendent of schools in this county. He also has three brothers, Jim and Bill Miller of Murfreesboro, Tenn. and Joe Miller of McMinnville, Tenn. and a sister, Mrs. R.G. Moffitt of Pea Ridge. Funeral services were delayed until yesterday afternoon awaiting the arrival of the son from California. Interment will be at Buttram’s chapel near his home.

MILLER, John C. - Funeral services were held yesterday at Buttram’s Chapel on Pea Ridge for John C. Miller, widely known farmer and influential citizen, who passed away at his home one mile south of Pea Ridge Friday night, September 28th at the age of nearly 80 years. Mr. Miller had been in excellent health until about two months ago when he underwent an operation from which he never recovered. The funeral was largely attended. Services were conducted by his old pastor, the Rev. I.M. Phillips of Westville, assisted by the Rev. A.E. Carnahan of Pea Ridge. He had long been a member of the Baptist church. The floral offerings were many and beautiful. Interment was made in the cemetery at Buttram’s Chapel. Surviving him are his widow and five sons: Norman Miller, Atlanta, Ga.; Firm Miller, Atchison, Kan.; Lee and Meade Miller, Dallas, Tex.; Hurley Miller, Hanford, Calif.; also by two daughters, Eulala Miller of the home and Gladys Miller of Pocatello, Idaho. Lee, Meade, Hurley and Gladys Miller were here for the funeral. Mrs. R.G. Moffitt of Pea Ridge was a sister of the deceased. Mr. Miller was born in McMinnville, Tenn. November 27, 1848. When a young man he came to Missouri and settled near Washburn. In 1871 he moved to his present farm on Pea Ridge where he had since lived. He was a successful farmer and a hard worker. He told the editor of this paper once that he had cultivated 56 crops in Arkansas and never had a failure. Even this year in his 79th year Mr. Miller cultivated seven acres of corn just for the love of caring for it.
