Miller, Lovis Pilketon
Miller, Lovis Pilketon a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, was born in Union County, Pennsylvania, January 8, 1809. He joined the Church in his sixteenth year. He was soon after impressed by a strong conviction that it was his duty to preach the Gospel to others.

He was successively stationed at Athens, Norwich, Georgetown, Madisonville, South Charleston, Wilmington, Franklin, White Oak, Madisonville, Amelia, Williamsburg, Lockland, West White Oak, Amelia, Milford, New Carlisle, Raysville, Batavia, Madisonville, Miami, Jamestown, and Moscow. In 1864 he entered the army as chaplain, and served until peace was restored. He died in 1872. Mr. Miller was a man of great humility and piety, and his ministry was a glorious success.
