Rogers Democrat

MILLER, C.W. - The community was greatly surprised on Monday morning to learn of the sudden death of C.W. Miller at his home three and one-half miles north of Rogers on the Pea Ridge road. Mr. Miller returned on last Thursday morning from Illinois where he had been called by the illness of his mother and was a caller at the Democrat office late Saturday evening. He said that his mother was greatly improved when he left and he seemed to be in excellent health himself. Sunday evening he complained of not feeling well and said that he thought he had walked too far. He started to the barn and a few minutes later his wife heard him call her. He was barely able to walk when she reached him and died a few minutes after she succeeded in getting him to the house. His death was caused by heart trouble. The funeral services were held at the home on Monday afternoon at four o'clock and were conducted by Rev. Holloway of the Baptist church of this city. The body was buried in the Rogers cemetery. Mr. Miller came to this state eight years ago from Illinois and was about fifty-eight years old. He leaves a wife and three children - two sons and a daughter. The oldest son resides in Illinois while the other, Ira, is at home on the farm. His daughter is the wife of Davis Osborne, who resides on the Barnett farm. Mr. Miller was held in high esteem by all his neighbors, being a man of many excellent qualities. His death will be a loss to the entire community. His peach orchard was one of the finest around Rogers and he took an active interest in all lines of horticultural work. The Democrat extends its sympathy to the relatives and friends.
