Robert Miller (1820–1893)

Mr. Robert Miller, an old Shoalhaven resident, died last Wednesday evening at his residence, Crookhaven. The cause of death was cancer, from which deceased had long suffered. Mr. Miller had resided here some 30 years. Two years ago he was attacked by the dreadful malady, and during the last six months he suffered most excruciating pain, he dying in great agony. His age was 72 years. He leaves a wife, three sons and seven daughters, one of whom is Mrs. Christopher Graham, of Nowra. His remains were interred yesterday at the Nowra public cemetery, whither they were followed by many old friends. The Rev. H. W. T. Pincombe read the Wesleyan burial service, and afterwards spoke some comforting words to the bereaved ones assembled at the grave, and with whom great sympathy is felt.
