    • cont'd from obituary of Garrett his brother:

      "Their brother, John Miller, was born Dec. 19th, 1790, and he too, in early life found the pearl of the great price. I can bear testimony to the triumphs of grace in his last hours; that confidence in his Saviour that sustained him in a long life of fidelity in his Masters cause secured for him a triumphant exit to his reward. He was an uncompromising opponent of everything that seemed to him to be an infringement on old Methodism. The good man grew eloquent on such topics as free seats in our churches, the rights of the poor, the good old congregational singing, the minister reading two lines of the hymn in church, kneeling during public prayer, becoming seriousness at all times in the House of God; on these and kindred subjects, Uncle John was a strong man. His class and his Church loved him much. All found in him a good counsellor, a warm friend, and a consistent member of the church. It was a great pleasure to him to entertain the ministers of the gospel; as his father did in this respect so did he, and, indeed, his brothers also. He calmly fell asleep on the 15th of Jan., 1864, leaving a large family following him on the same path to Heaven. It is a little remarkable that these brothers should have passed away from earth within 3 months of each other; the eldest first, then the next, and finally the youngest. And, that although living within a short distance of each other, neither was permitted to see the other during his last illness".
