George B. Miller, of the firm of Miller & Kaemmerer, general merchants, is a native of Columbiana county, Ohio, and was born May 9, 1851. His father was a carpenter and farmer in Allen county, Indiana. to which place he had moved when George was quite young, and cleared up a small farm up to 1860, when he moved his family to Pike's Peak, remaining only a short time, when they returned to Adair county on account of sickness, and farmed for some five years, when Mr. Miller, Sr., bought a small place in Fontanelle, and worked at his trade. George B. was educated, and learned the mason's trade in Fontanelle, which trade he followed until he commenced clerking for Marquart & Taylor. In 1879 he began clerking for George Rogers, which occupation he followed up to the time of his buying the interest of Mr. Marquart. He was married on the 2d of April, 1881, to Miss Ida J. Shaw, a native of Wisconsin, and the daughter of George D. Shaw. They have two children--Roscoe, born December 27, 1882, and an infant, born March 12, 1884.
