Reflections for Marshal Andrew H. Miller

The day he was killed Marshal Miller had just chased my 17 year old Grandfather out of the Ellis, KS pool hall. My Grandfather said a drunk was waiving a gun from a second story window next door and yelling. Sheriff Andy as my Grandfather called him yelled back for the man to stop waiving the gun around and started for the house. The man yelled back, " Andy Miller, you take one more step and I'll shoot you!" Sheriff Miller not believing the man would actually shoot continued walking toward the house. The man shot him there in the street. I have to wonder if the Sheriff hadn't gone after him if he wouldn't have gone back to the Pool Hall and more people would have died that day perhaps my Grandfather. Thank you Sheriff Andy Miller. Rest in Peace.
