    HENRY MILLER has during many years been identified with the agricultural life of Benton county, and although he has practically retired from an active business life he yet maintains his home on his estate of seventy-five acres in section 4, Homer township. His home has been in Benton county since the year of 1874, a pioneer epoch in its history, and during ten years he farmed as a renter, purchasing then two hundred acres in sections 6 and 7, Homer township, which he improved and farmed for sixteen years. At the close of that period he traded farms with his son, and his home has since been at his present residence. He began life in Benton county practically without capital, and is numbered among its self made men as well as representative citizens.

    Mr. Miller was born in Mecklenberg, Germany, June 19, 1844, a son of John and Mary (Dobe) Miller, who spent their lives in the Fatherland, John Miller being a superintendent or foreman for a large farmer there. Both he and his wife died many years ago. Two daughters of the family came to this country, but both are now deceased, and Henry Miller has a half brother living in Germany and a step-brother in the state of New York.

    Mr. Miller was reared and educated in his native city of Mecklenberg, and he came to America in 1869, one year after his marriage. His first home here was at Bremer in Cook county, Illinois, where he worked during the first year for a farmer, and then with his brother-in-law he moved to Stockbridge, that state, and worked five years in a stone quarry and then two years at various lines in St. Louis, Missouri, returning then to Stockridge and was in the quarries for another year. In the following year he came to Benton county, where his brother-in-law, Fred Holtz, had located the year previously. Mr. Miller had married in Germany in 1868 Miss Caroline Rubenstine, also born there, and she died in Benton county on the 17th of November, 1896, at the age of fifty-one years. She bore her husband nine children, and eight are living at the present time: Henry Miller, Jr., the first born, is a native son of Germany, and was a boy of one year when brought to America. He resides in Monroe township. He married first a Miss Annie Thiele, who died leaving three children, his present wife being Annie Bantze and the mother of his one son. Mary, the second chid born to Mr. and Mrs. Miller, is the wife of Samuel Bantze, farming in Big Grove township, and they have six children, three sons and three daughters; Anna, the wife of Herman Stahr of Monroe township, has three daughters; Emma, the wife of Otto Brick, residing in Tama county, about four miles south of Dysart, is the mother of a daughter; Lena is the wife of Albert Piper, also of Big Grove township, and they are the parents of a son; Albert is at home; Herman married Miss Tina Bode and is a Monroe township farmer; and Martha, is her father's housekeeper. Mr. Miller is a member of the Republican party, and he has served in various public positions, including seven years as a school director at his present home and six years in districts where he formerly resided, and he was for three years trustee of Homer township while residing in section 6. He has but recently been returned to that office, assuming its duties in November of 1909 for a term of three years. He is a member of the Evangelical church of Homer township, as was also his wife, and he is one of Benton county's honored pioneer residents and highly esteemed citizens.
