A.E. Miller - National Dairy Assn Honor Roll

The story that I was told is that Dr. Miller took some scruffy cows and built up a substantial dairy herd using this method.

This cow's registered name is Parthenia Ormsby Orlando
Born Jan. 29, 1929
Dam Double F. P. Parthenia (Susie)
Sire Korndyke Ormsby Orlando
They were very proud of their cows.

Children of A.E. Miller
I'll tell you like a compass rose: North = Helen Miller Smith South = Grace Louise Miller Watts (my mom) West = Ruth Miller (we can thank her for collecting all these pictures; I just lugged them around! East = Glen Miller (not the singer :) Austin's wife and mother of these children was Jennie Schoolcroft.
Grace and Helen are the only ones who had children.

"The Guardians of The North Fork".  I took this picture some years ago and it is the best picture of Mt. Lamborn, (left) and Lands End, (right) that I have seen.  Use it if you want to. It was taken from Highway 133 between Paonia and Hotchkiss.  The North Fork River of the Gunnison is below the hill where the road is and cannot be seen.
