John Miller the younger, son of John Miller and Hannah Switzer, was born abt. 1849 in McNab Twp. and moved to Ross Twp. about 1871 or 1872. On Dec 3, 1872 he married Margaret Elizabeth Rose, daughter of William Rose and Ann Bennett. They were back in McNab Twp when their second son,William L. Miller, was born in 1876. John Miller the younger was listed as a mill owner on the birth registration.

By 1881 Margaret and Elizabeth were in Ross Twp. again and the 1881 census lists his occupation as "sowing machine agent". I don't think that was a misspelling. He was probably an agent for a farm machinery manufacturer.

Before 1891 the Millers left Ross Twp. In 1919 they were in Stonewall, Manitoba where John Miller the younger had a farm.

My interest in this family is peripheral. William Rose, father-in-law of John Miller the younger, was step-father to my grandfather.
