This is my GG grandfather shortly after he married Delia Hensley in, 1904. That mustache cracks me up every time I see it. He looks so serious. He's only 25. 

I wanted to share this family photo of James Miller with the community. Location: unknown. Date: 1904.

James is a very handsome man. I love his shirt with the pleats and what looks like a collar at the top. Really nice mustache.

Very interesting story regarding his burial. Was he in the Texas cemetery or in the Oklahoma cemetery. Just reading the information in his biography was a great story of his life.

And being called as a character witness for his son who was killed by an irate police office, makes James life even more interesting.

When people share pictures such as you have, we have the opportunity, if we take it, to evaluate the picture, and to get to know the character even more by looking at his profile.

Thank you so much, Katrina, for sharing this wonderful picture and profile with your WikiTree family.

He is buried in Texas Next to his son, Frank and wife, Delia. I have reserved the spot next to Frank for myself.

James was a nice man. I wish I would have known him. I own his Bolova watch and architecture book . I also have a letter his brother, Jacob Almorine wrote to him in 1949 after their sister, Dixie's funeral.
Katrina, I read that he ended up in Texas. How cool that you have his watch and book. Those are special items.

Your family sounds a like lot mine. My grandparents, my parents, my sister, son, my husband and myself will all be buried together. My Aunt, Uncle and their children will be right behind us.

There is one cemetery near us that was named for my husband's family, and most of his relatives are buried there.

It is very exciting that you were able to obtain a plot next to Frank. I am guessing that Frank did not end up being your g-grandfather?

Thank you for sharing this extra information with me.

God Bless you!
Hugh Miller, Frank's brother, is my great grandfather. Lol. Hes buried in colbert oklah. Frank was a tomcat (with male and female) friends.  He supposedly had a son. Who knows. He looks just like me and my brother. My dad looks like Hugh and Jacob warren Miller. I had to fight, twice, to get that funeral plot beside Frank.
Well that surprises me Katrina - and congratulations on getting that funeral plot next to Frank. You have a great sense of humor and made me laugh at your comments.

Thank you for settling that thought in my mind.

Have a great day!

Cheryl
