Miller, James Monroe, lawyer and member of Congress, was born at Three Springs, Pa., May 6, 1852, the son of Jonathan and Christiana Miller. He was educated at Dickinson Seminary, Williamsport, Pa., and soon after arriving at his majority he decided that the West offered greater opportunities for young men than did Pennsylvania. Accordingly he came to Kansas, located at Council Grove, where he took up the study of law, and in 1880 he was admitted to the bar. Soon after his admission he was elected county attorney of Morris county, and was twice reëlected. During the six years he served as county attorney he became well acquainted throughout the county; was active in political affairs as a Republican; was one of the presidential electors on the Republican ticket in 1884; and in 1898 was elected to represent the 4th district in the lower branch of Congress. He was reëlected at each succeeding election until 1908, and was a candidate for renomination in 1910, but was defeated in the primary by Fred S. Jackson. In his religious affiliations Mr. Miller is a member of the Methodist Episcopal church, and in 1896 he was a delegate to the general conference of that denomination. On Dec. 23, 1884, while serving as county attorney, Mr. Miller married Miss Mamie R. Dillon, of Council Grove.
