Died, at Ft. Heiman, Ky., April 28th, 1863, after a short but severe illness, Corporal John E. Miller. He was born in Petry County, Pa., on the 9th day of December, 1844, and entered the military service of his country in July, 1862, in Co. H. 111th Reg. Ill. Vol. Infantry, in the 17th year of his age. Cut down in the prime of his manhood, when his seal and integrity marked him as a true patriot and efficient soldier, his whole mind and attention were absorbed in the cause for which he started out. The cheerful alacrity in obeying every order won the confidence and esteem of his captain and fellow soldiers. We mourn his loss, and will miss him as a beloved brother and son, and now leave him in the hands of Him who is the resurrection and life. - Jacob Miller
