Yorkville Enquirer, May 11, 1864: Col. John Lucas Miller killed
The first telegram on Saturday, May 7th, carrying the news of the resumption of the war included the news of the death of Miller of the 12th Regt. The people of York had a pall cast over the news of the Confederate success. He left a young widow.
Miller’s father was Dr. John L. Miller of York District, whose brother was Col, Stephen D. Miller (Governor of SC). He graduated from Davidson (1847) and studied law with L. D. Witherspoon, was elected to Commissioner in Equity for York District and after a term was elected to the legislature.
