VINCENT V. MILLER.
In the front ranks of prosperous agriculturists and enterprising citizens of Delaware township, Defiance county,
we find the name of this gentleman. He is a son of Elias and Rebecca (Foos) Miller, and is a native of this State,
born in Harrison county, December 18, 1845. After a residence for a number of years in Harrison county, the family,
in the fall of 1855, removed to Defiance county, making it thenceforth their home. The mother is deceased. [A fuller
history of the parents is given in the sketch of their son, Z. H. Miller.]
Vincent V. Miller, the third of their family of five children, came with his parents to Defiance county when nearly
ten years of age, and here, in Delaware township, his early education was completed. At the age of seventeen years
he learned the carpenter's trade, which he followed regularly for twenty years. He then continued it in connection
with fanning four or five years, and with his brother Emanuel was interested in the sawmill business about five
In early manhood he married Miss Caroline E. Gordon, who was born in Paulding county, Ohio, April I, 1848, a daughter
of the late George Gordon, of the same place; and there they were married, October 19, 1871. Of the two children
born to them, one, Arthur E., is living, their little daughter Grace having died in infancy.
In politics Mr. Miller votes with the Prohibition party. He takes an active interest in the public affairs of the
township, and is a warm advocate of measures tending to the advancement of educational interests. He has served
as a member of the school board three years. Mr. and Mrs. Miller located in their present home in the fall of 1871;
and Mr. Miller's valuable farm of two hundred acres, together with its good farm buildings, stands a witness to
the thrift and prosperity of the owner.
