"Michael Miller was born in Pennsylvania in 1817. He came to Ohio when a young man, where he married first, Charity Maurer, and, after her death, within a few years, he married Phoebe Bigler. To this union were born fifteen children. He moved his family to Marshall County, Indiana, and then to Western Missouri; after a few years he moved to Wabash County, Indiana, where he spent the rest of his life. He died in North Manchester, February 18, 1900. In middle age he was called to the ministry, and thereafter served as a local preacher in the congregations where he lived. He succeeded the capable R.H. Miller, Sr., as presiding elder of Manchester congregation and served a few years until old age caused him to retire." p. 3
