Sheriff Miller was shot with an arrow and beaten by several suspects while en route to Indian Territory (modern day Oklahoma) to arrest a suspect. Sheriff Miller's body was never found. Details of his demise were not learned until a prisoner in Fort Smith, Arkansas, confessed that he witnessed the murder.

Sheriff Miller had served with the agency for 4 years. He was survived by his wife and seven children.

I am a descendant of Sheriff Miller (by adoption) and have served as a Peace officer in Texas and Louisiana. It is my belief that the sheer grit exhibited by those who came before us set a very high standard, indeed. It is my hope that the actions, selflessness and heroism that they exhibited, day to day, shall never fade away. In this day and age when someone is celebrated because of how well they can flaunt themselves upon a stage or catch a ball. Once, Heroes were those who kept the Wolves at bay, and, by doing so, helped a golden age to arise.
