PREFACE 



Among the early settlers of Springfield, 
Mass., we find Ebenezer Miller and his wife 
Hannah — living there in September, 1660. 

Lieut. Thomas Miller lived there and 
was killed by the Indians at the burning 
of Springfield in 1675. He was a man of 
prominence in the community and at the 
time of the massacre held the office of Town 
Constable; many interesting stories are told 
of him and his wife concerning the part 
they took during the witchcraft craze. He 
evidently did not appreciate the honor of 
the office to which he was elected at one 
time — that of Fence Viewer — as he was 
fined two shilling for not properly fulfilling 
the duties of this office. 

Obadiah Miller took the oath of al- 
legiance at Springfield April 27, 1678. 



PREFACE 3 

Jolm Miller was an Ensign in the local 
military company, living at Springfield, 
1703-1735. 

In 1736-38, Mrs. John Miller and John 
Miller, Jr., were in full communion with 
the Church at Springfield. 

This genealogy begins with Captain 
Joseph Miller, born 1698, probably a grand- 
son of Lieut. Thomas Miller, above men- 
tioned. 

The work was begun some years ago, 
during the life time of the late George 
Byron Miller, of New York City. It is 
completed in so far as it fulfills his inten- 
tion, in that it lays the foundation correctly 
for a large number of the descendants of 
Captain Joseph Miller, born in 1698, of 
West Springfield, Mass. 



CAPTAIN J05LPH MILLER 



1. CAPTAIN JOSEPH MILLER was 

born in 1698, he died at West Springfield, 
Mass., April 8, 1760, aged 62 years. He 
married Mary Wilder; she died Nov. 24, 
1759, aged 64 years. By occupation he was 
a farmer. For many years he was in com- 
mand of a company of soldiers and saw 
much service in the Indian wars. 

One of their children was 

2. JOSEPH, b. May, 1724. 

2. JOSEPH MILLER, m. Catharine 
Fesey, born Dec, 1727, died April, 1811. 
He died April 8, 1803, aged 79 years. He 
was captain of a military company in the 
Indian wars, and in the war of the Revo- 
lution was Captain of the 11th Company of 
the First Hampshire County Regiment, 
Mass. Militia. 



CAPTAIN JOSEPH MILLER 5 

He was among the first settlers of Lud- 
low, Mass., moving there with his family 
from West Springfield, Mass., in 1751. 

At this time the journey of 14 miles up 
the Chicopee River, through a dense forest 
was extremely hazardous; it is recorded 
that they were mourned as dead by their 
friends at their former home in West Spring- 
field; a tradition of the family is that a 
funeral sermon was preached over their 
departure. 

At the first Town Meeting held in Lud- 
low, March 16, 1774, Joseph Miller was 
elected Selectman and Treasurer, and at an 
adjourned meeting he was appointed- a Dele- 
gate to the Provincial Congress at Salem, 
Mass. In the same capacity he again went 
to Salem, then to Cambridge, Mass., and to 
another session of the Congress at Water- 
town, Mass., the next May. He was paid 
11 pounds, 13 shillings, 2 pence for expenses, 
and 2 shillings a day, for 32 days attendance. 



CAPTAIN JOSEPH MILLER 6 

He was the first Representative from the 
town of Ludlow to the Massachusetts State 
Legislature in 1785, 

In 1786, a grandchild of Capt. Joseph 
Miller was run over by a cart, this injury 
terminating fatally; the body was the first 
to be laid in the old burial ground of the 
Congregational Church at Ludlow. In the 
following year his barn was burned and in it 
a little two year old granddaughter. A few 
months afterward another grandchild, son 
of Isaac Brewer, was taken away in early 
manhood, followed soon by his heart-broken 
father. 

A relic of early days exhibited at the 
Philadelphia Centennial, 1876, was a shoe 
worn by Capt. Joseph Miller's grandchild.

3. AARON J. MILLER, married in 
1780, Esther Burr, born April 9, 1763, died

was a distinguished physician and surgeon 
and was a member of the Massachusetts 
State Legislature. 

He served as Surgeon in the Army during 
the War of the Revolution. The following 
record is of interest: 



CAPTAIN JOSEPH MILLER 8 

"Aaron J. Miller, Surgeon, 83 years of 
age, of Hampden County, Mass., was allowed 
a pension of $200 per year, Sept. 13, 1833, 
and a payment of $600 was made to him on 
this date, as pension for previous years." 

The following from the Palmer, Mass., 
"Journal," illustrates the man: "He was 
the first physician in Ludlow, Mass., and 
was a very tidy sort of a man, distinguished 
for wearing the best broadcloth he could 
find and always eating molasses instead of 
butter on his bread; drinking clear tea and 
a very little old New England rum. He 
was a rapid talker, made his fever powders 
of camphor gum and loaf sugar and was 
never known to hurt his patients with his 
medicines. He usually walked when visit- 
ing his patients, always accompanied by his 
little dog. He was intolerant of others 
opinions, and emphasized his own with fre- 
quent thrusts of his cane. He wrote the 
following epitaph on his little dog: 



CAPTAIN JOSEPH MILLER 9 

Bute, Who was Killed by the Wolves. 

"Hard was the fate of little 'Bute' 
With hungry wolves he did dispute, 
Amid the strife of battles din 
Received a grip beneath the chin. 

Adieu, my brother of the dust, 
Those savage whelps are doubly cursed, 
With horrid screech and doleful yell, 
I hear them howling now in hell."*

loving kindness or more genial in his friend- 
ship than was George Byron Miller. He
