The Democrat, May 1903
In memory of Simeon Miller:-Sad? sad, was the hour of 4 p.m., Monday May 4th, when just as the day was nearing an end our friend and loved one Simeon Miller crossed the dark river of death only to anchor his soul in the haven of rest. He said just a short while before he left us, noting these words but to their meaning. "All is well with my soul."
Mr. Miller leaves a wife and five children who sadly mourn for their dear departed husband and father. He was born in Campbell Co GA, Nov 1?, 1831. At the age of 24 he gave himself to God living up to his promise made then until the last.
He came to Mississippi in 1864 and here made his home up to the present time. It can truly be said of Mr. Miller that none knew him save to love and respect him. His many relatives and friends will surely miss him in many of their undertakings. His remains were interred at Mt Zion cemetery Tuesday at 3 p.m. Burial services were conducted by Rev R L Bunyard, who spoke many words of comfort to the bereaved ones.
