Andrew Miller

Oswego lost one of her best known and worthiest citizens in the death of Andrew Miller, which occurred today at the age of 76 years. Mr. Miller was born in Coleraine, Ireland, May 3, 1806, and came to Oswego when 25 years old. He had learned the trade of a shipcarpenter in his own country and engaged in it here, working first for Thomas Collins and afterwards for Sylvester Doolittle.

He then formed a partnership with Thomas Dobbie in shipbuilding and soon after established a shipyard in the East cove. The firm was Miller Trowbridge for a time, and after Mr. Trowbridge went out, he was succeeded successively by Mr. White, Mr. Kitts, Mr. Lefevre and Mr. Moore. Mr. Miller retired from business eight years ago. He had a stroke of paralysis after the holidays and for the past three weeks had been declining quite rapidly. Mr. Miller was an excellent mechanic, a good citizen and universally respected for his sterling qualities.
