ers has nnswered Ilia last roll call.
Captain John. S. .Miller was born in
Clav county, M-ouri, Dec. l!.itli,
18121. Died March Willi, 1012; age
87 yenrs, ;i months and ."i days. Ho
came overland across lliu plains with
ox teams to Oregon Territory in 18 111,
and Ktoppctl near Oregon City. At
that lime there wore hut a few white
settlers in the country hut thure wore
large iiuinbovs of unlive Indians, some
of which were hostile and would mur
der und steal from the few white
settlers at every fnviynWo opportun
ity. Ihesu settler hail to protect
themselves as best thev could, for our
federal government, up I" that time
and for several yours after; luul fail
ed to give her subjects iu Oregon
protection of nuy kiml. In tliou try
ing days John S. .Miller was one who
was ever ready to respond to thu first
call to protect life and property.
When the news of tho murder by tho
Indians of Dr. Marcus Whitman, his
wife and a number of others nt Ilia
Whitman Mission i' Walla Wnllu vol
Icy, November 'JOtlu 1817, reached
them, John ,S. Miller was one among
the first who unlisted, under the pr.i
visiount government of Oregon, to co
und help to punish the Indians for the
ernel murders they had committed.
Shouldering his -uu and blankets he
with others marched on foot two hun
dred and sixty miles to the scene of
the massacre and there met and chas
tised the Indians like true and noble
patriots. Later in LS.VJ, he moved to
Jackson couutv, Oregon iu company
with Captain It. IJ. (iriffen. While
on this trip ho married oue Captain
(Iriffeu's daughters, Miss Lydia. He
settled iu Jackson county on a farm
but was ever ready to respond to any
cull to protect life and property
agamsr. Hostile Indians unit were.
numerous at thnt time. Ho took an
active part in the Indian war of 183U
and in October 85.r, when there was
a general outbreak of the Indians nil
over southern Oregon, he whs among
the first to enlist and served like, n
gallant soldier from the beginning to
the end, more than seven months; a
part of the time as first lieutenant
and the remainder of thu time as
captain. The men under him loved
and rcsected him. He inner stud "go
in" but always said "coma on, boys."
He was u cool, determined nud cour
ageous iu battle but kind nud good to
his men. After this Iiidiun wur was
over he was elected a member of tho
Oregon legislature where he acquit
ted himsclf-iu.-inJiononib!e manner.
After this he retired to his form with
his family where they lived happily
until iu 1871, his wife died. This
seemed to diicourugo him so much
that he could never muster coiirnge to
do much nftcrwnrds. They had six
children, nil of whom married und

lived with one or another of them. Ho
was city mnrshul of Medford from

he was nt his own home on Applcgntc.
Ho was sick for iuite a while but
he bore his sufferings without a mur

lived an houorahlo life, loved and re
spected by all who Know him; his
