Description

Miller, a family practioner, is the author of Roots by the River (1973), a history of the Old German Baptist Brethern in Miami County, Ohio. He talks about his family's history and religious background and the characteristics of various denominations: the traditional Old German Baptist Brethren, the progressive Brethren Church, and the conservative Church of the Brethren. Talks about splits in the German Baptist Church over automobiles and other issues, their opposition to the paying preachers and the establishment of Sunday schools, and some members' choice not to use electricity. He also discusses young people in the church, bible education at home, divisions within the church, friendliness in the church, bans on rubber tires, women making their own dresses, and encouraging beard-wearing in men. He describes children who leave the church, marriage outside the church, the enthusiasm of converts, the Old Brethern in Salida, California, and the use of and choosing of proper automobiles. Miller was born in Montgomery, Ohio.
