Reuben A. Miller


Born in Warren County, Pennsylvania, in 1863, Reuben A. Miller, now a representative stockman of Uinta County, Wyoming is a son of Joseph and Mary (Westfall) Miller, both natives of Pennsylvania, the mother being a daughter of James and Hannah Westfall. Joseph Miller has been a farmer and stockman all of his life coming to Wyoming in 1880. He is now located in Idaho, a hale old gentleman of seventy-five years, while the mother now maintains her home at Hamís Fork, Wyoming. Reuben A. Miller was nineteen years old when he accompanied his people from the East, where he had received the education given at the schools of his native county and after various mutations and changes of occupation the principal ones, however being the care of cattle and riding on the range in 1893 he homesteaded 160 acres on Hamís Fork, sixteen miles from Kemmerer and engaged in cattleraising, for which he was by this time particularly well qualified. His herds increasing he soon added eighty acres more to his estate which he has put well under improvement but he has recently made his home on section No. 12, township 23, in Uinta County, near the Big Piney post office, continuing there to be employed in raising choice breeds of cattle. In politics Mr. Miller supports the Democratic Party and is of much importance in local matters of public interest, being a good citizen and a useful member of the cattleraising fraternity. Mr. Miller married in 1896, Miss Lizzie Sutton, a daughter of William Sutton, a prominent citizen who is more particularly mentioned in the sketch of Edward Sutton elsewhere in this volume and to which we refer the reader for further details. Mr. and Mrs. Miller have three children, Bertha May, Agnes Irene and Edward.
