The grim monster of death has again entered our midst, this time taking Katherine Finnegan Miller, wife of Milo B. Miller, to her last rest on Saturday, Dec. 21, at 7 a.m. Mrs. Miller was born in the town of Willsboro, Essex County, the 24th of April, 1841, her parents' names being Michael and Mary Anne Finnegan. In 1868, she came to Saranac Lake, then a small hamlet, and on June 29th was married to Milo B. Miller. One child, Mary, now the wife of H. H. Tousley, was born to bless their union. "Mr. and Mrs. Miller have resided in the Town of Harrietstown since their marriage in '68 and have seen it grow from a country village to its present size. She was loved by all who knew her and was one of the best friends to the poor who will miss her kind remembrances and pleasant words. She was of a lovable disposition and made friends of all with whom she came in contact.

She leaves a husband, a daughter and eight brothers; James, George, Henry, William, Thomas, John, Charles and Richard; two sisters, Mary Wallace and Mrs. P. H. Carey, besides a host of other relatives and friends. The interment took place from her residence on Main Street on December 26th 2:30 p.m. and from the church at 3:00 p.m. with Rev. H. Larom officiating. Her remains were followed to her last resting place by many people. In respect all stores and businesses in town were closed for two hours.
