    W. F. MILLER, proprietor of the leading livery, feed and sales stables at Troy, Ohio, has been identified with the interests of this city for the past seventeen years and has investments in different concerns. He was born at West Milton, Miami County, Ohio, in 1856, and is a son of George W. Miller, a native of Pennsylvania, who died in 1907. The latter was brought to Ohio in childhood, spent many years as a teacher and farmer in Miami County, and lived retired for some fifteen years or more previous to his death.

    After completing his public school course Mr. Miller left the farm and operated a flour and feed store, to which he later added a grocery and bakery. He then visited in California for two years, and when he came back to Ohio he engaged in clerking in Miami County for D. W. McCullough & Co. for five years, later was in a retail coal business, and then entered the employ of the Troy Bending Works. Still later he became an employee of the Pioneer Pole and Shaft Company, for which concern he worked for six years, spending a part of the time buying and manufacturing lumber in the South for their use. He then purchased his present business, which he has established on North Cherry Street. He has the largest and best equipment in Troy and handles a large amount of trade. He keeps on an average thirty-five head of horses and has all kinds of conveyances for hire. He owns lumber tracts in the South and is also interested in the firm of Miller & Flowers, gents' furnishers, at Piqua. His business standing is high and his worthy citizenship is unquestioned.

    Mr. Miller was married (first) in 1881 to Miss Lilly B. Tucker, who died in 1862 leaving two children: C. E., who is his father's bookkeeper and for five years was a traveling salesman through the South; and Essie, who is the wife of F. O. Flowers, a leading business man of Piqua. Mr. Miller was married (second) to Miss Frances Dollinger, who was born and reared in Newberry Township, Miami County. They are members of the First Presbyterian Church.
