From the past: June 1944

Probably two of Geauga Countys largest Amish funerals were held in the large barn on the Levi E. Miller (now John J. Miller) farm. In June 1944, the double funeral of Samuel Miller, age 13 years, 11 months and 20 days, and William Henry Kuhns, age 14 years, 1 month and 11 days, was held there. These two boys lost their lives due to drowning. Samuel was a great-grandson of old Daniel D. Miller. Almost three years later, Daniels funeral was held in the same place. Samuels parents were Andy R. Millers and William was the son of Henry Kuhn.

You all enjoy the nice weather. Take time to smell the roses.

Time to leave for son Rays and enjoy something off the grill.
