ALTON MILLER
1873-1908

Miller. - Bro. Alton Miller was born in Lagrange Co., Ind., Aug. 14, 1873. He united in marriage with Polly Hostetler on the 26th day of May, 1894, and together they shared the joys and sorrows of life until he was called to his eternal reward on March 9, 1908, having lived in matrimony 13 Y., 9 M., 13 D.; aged 34 Y., 6 M., 25 D. He leaves to mourn their loss a sorrowing wife and four children, a loving father and mother, one brother and three sisters; but we trust their loss is his eternal gain. In his sixteenth year he united with the Mennonite church and remained faithful unto the end. Funeral was held on March 11 at the Shore Mennonite meeting-house where a large concourse of people met to pay the last tribute of respect to the departed brother. Services by Amos S. Cripe and Josiah Miller. Interment in the Miller burying-ground.

She is survived by a sorrowing husband, two children and many warm friends. One child preceded her to the spirit world several months ago. Her pleasant and mild ways won for her many warm friends, which was manifested by the large congregation at the funeral. She appeared to have a fortaste of the joys awaiting her in heaven. Shortly before she died she was talking about the beautiful road she was traveling and the beautiful springs she was seeing so that she left a strong evidence that she died happy. May every one who reads this be prepared to leave behind an evidence that all is well.
Sallie, thou hast left me lonely, sorrow fills my heart to-day;
But beyond this world of sorrow tears will all be wiped away.
Mother, thou art sweetly resting, here thy toils and cares are o'er;
Pain and sickness, death and sorrow, never can distress thee more." L.A. BLOUGH
