Notes from obituary of Rev. L. Merrill Miller by Persis Yates Boyesen

In 1846 he married Lydia R. Rumsey, daughter of Hon. David Rumsey of Bath. She pre-deceased her husband by several years. Linus Merrill Miller was born in Rochester, Oct. 13, 1819

His first call was to Bath and he was ordained and installed pastor October, 1844. He resigned the Bath pastorate to accept a call extended by the First Presbyterian Church of Ogdensburg in 1851. He arrived at his new field of labor after an adventurous trip which his leg was broken by the stage coach overturning and he entered the pulpit on crutches - installed as pastor June 25, 1851. He died on Monday afternoon and would have been 82 years of age the following Sunday.
