the first five years of his life. Subsequently the
family removed to New York City where they re-
sided three years, and then to find a more healthy
residence removed to Bhinebeck, Dutches- Co., N. Y.
Three years later they changed their residence to
Flushing, L. I., where E/.ra Miller grew to man-
hood, receiving a thorough English education. It
was the design of his father that lie should pursue
the study of medicine, but the natural bent of his
mind was in the direction of mathematical and me-
chanical investigation, to which ho paid much atten-
tion, and which resulted in his becoming a successful
civil, topographical, mechanical, and hydraulic engi-
neer, a profession that he has followed more or leas
down to the present time.

On Sept. i':(, 1888, Col. Miller enlisted in a company
of horse artillery belonging to the Second Regiment
First Brigade, New York State Militia. After U
honorable service of nearly six years, during which
time he filled the various offices m the company, he
was on the 6th of August, L839, appointed adjutant of
the regiment, and July 2d of the following year lie
was commissioned lieutenant-colonel, in which <a-



pacity he served until July 4, 1842, when he was pro-
moted to a full colonelcy and placed in command of
the regiment.

In May, 1841, Col. Miller was united in marriage
to Amanda, daughter of Capt. Seth Millar, of New
York, and removed to Fort Hamilton, residing on the
" Post place,'' adjoining the fort. While here he
took a warm interest in the efficiency of the United
States troops stationed at that point, and rendered
material assistance to Lieut. Duncan, of the regular
army, in command of Company A of United States
artillery, and training his company successfully
against the machinations of a superior officer at head-
quarters, who had for some cause conceived a dislike
for the young commandant, and who sought to curtail
his chances of success, in the decline of his military
discipline, by depriving him of the use of the accus-
tomed sum of money for the yearly renting of a field
on which to drill his company. Col. Miller counter-
acted this influence by loaning Lieut. Duncan one of
his meadows in which to drill his command. In the
Mexican war, which followed shortly after, Duncan's
battery took a very important part, and gave ample
evidence of the great value of its perfect drill. It
Saved the army at Palo Alto and Resaca de la Paluia,
and throughout the campaigns of Taylor and Scott
did the most effective service.

In the month of April, 1848. Col. Miller removed
with his family to Rock County, in the State of Wis-
consin, which had just been added to the union of
States. There he engaged in surveying the United
States and State lands, with his residence at the new-
town of Magnolia. He at once took a prominent and
influential place in the community, and was elected
to various county and town offices. For two terms
he filled the office of justice of the peace with general
acceptance. It is true that his unfailing good humor
often led him to temper justice with mercy, but in the
end the greater good was generally thereby accom-
plished. It was during his first term of office that a
constable brought a prisoner before him on a warrant
for assault issued by a justice of an adjoining town.
The colonel, seated on a log in a grove near his house,
listened to the constable's testimony against the pris-
oner, who was a peaceful man when not under the in-
fluence of liquor. On hearing the case the justice found
it to be only a petty scuffle, the result of a too free use
of liquor at a chopping-bee, and after administering
a little good advice to the prisoner, at the same time
receiving his promise to do better in the future, he
dismissed the case, directing that the costs be paid by
the constable, to which that functionary readily re-
sponded by pulling a flask from his pocket and treat-
ing the court.

The military reputation of Col. Miller followed him
to the West, and on July 4, 1851, he was appointed by
Governor Dewey to the colonelcy of the Eighth Regi-
ment State Militia, a position which he filled during
his residence in Wisconsin.

The following year 1 1852 1 he was elected a member
of the State Senate from the Seventeenth District,
comprising the county of Rock, then the most wealthy
and populous, excepting Milwaukee, in the State. As
a senator he served the State and his constituency
with honor and fidelity, and was appointed by the
Governor one of the managers of the State Institution
for the Blind. After one term of faithful service as
a representative he declined a renomination. as well
as a remuneration for extra services rendered in be-
half of certain local improvements. It was during
Col. Miller's senatorial term that the celebrated trial
of Judge Hubbel occurred, in which the former took
an important part. For this and other duties an extra
mileage was voted by both Houses, which Col. Miller
opposed, and he was the only member who did not
draw pay for the same, the amount still standing to
his credit on the books of the State treasurer.

No great length of time had elapsed after the resi-
dence of Col. Miller in the West before his naturally
inquiring mind led him to investigate the condition of
affairs in that growing section, and to suggest changes
and improvements that might conduce to its more
rapid growth and development. His principal atten-
tion was directed to the railroad system of the country.
He had been present at the birth of that system; had
traveled in the first trains, when stage-coach bodies
were placed upon trucks and run upon strap rails;
when, in case of rain, the locomotive was housed and
horses substituted: and when the construction of
tracks, locomotives, and cars was in the most crude
state. His acquaintance with these matters enabled
him to perceive that improvements were necessary in
order to facilitate transportation, making it reliable
and expeditious between the seaboard and the far
West; and he was not long in finding errors that
needed correcting, particularly in the method of
making up the passenger trains, which, though it
might do for a speed of ten miles, or less, per hour,
was dangerous to life at a greater speed.

The height of the first cars was two feet ten inches
above the track, and the couplers were placed on a
line with the sills, the butters being on the same line,
though separately constructed. Subsequent improve-
ments, however, raised the coach and car bodies, ren-
dering it advisable to combine both butter and coupler
in one, and place them beneath the platform and below
the line of the sills, — which is the line of resistance to
any longitudinal blow, — in order to admit of their
coupling to the older cars. This depression of the
line of resistance between the cars was the greatest
error of the American system of making up trains,
and led to that most fatal of all forms of railway ac-
cidents, telescoping. About the year 1853, while Col.
Miller was engaged in the survey of portions of the
Northwestern Railway, there were a number of acci-
dents upon the great passenger lines, both East and
West, in which cars were telescoped with fatal results,
owing entirely to the errors mentioned. Col. Miller



also discovered that the oscillation of cars acting in-
dependently of eacb other, coupled as all of them
were by Black link* or chains, was one of the most
fruitful causes of derailment, and that it could only
be prevented l-y tension, or holding the cars firmly
together; and the result of long years of labor and
experiment on his part was the invention of what is
now known as the "Miller Platform," a device that
is now in general use on all the railroad. - of this
country, and which is conceded to he the greatest life-
saving invention ever placed upon rail, saving more
than a thousand lives a year.

Tin- result of Col. Miller's labors in behalf of safety
in railway travel has been to greatly diminish the
number of accidents, to put an end to telescoping and
oscillation on all the railroads in the country, and to
infuse a feeling of safety and comfort into the passen-
ger, the employe, the manager, and the stockholder.
He has in his possession a large collection of letters
from presidents, managers, superintendents, master-
mechanics, car-builders, conductors, and engineers,
all of which bear ample testimony to the great value
of these inventions.

Col. Miller has invented several other valuable im-
provements for various purposes. He has letters
patent for hi* platforms in Ru-sia, and has licensed
that government to use them, and it is tiow a promi-
nent feature of the national standard system of Russian
railways. They are also used in nearly all countries,
and will soon become the only system of making up
trains. The colonel occupies a beautiful residence at
Mahwah, Bergen Co., which his ingenious devices and
excellent artistic taste have rendered one of the most
beautiful rural homes in the United State-. Here he
loves to retire, away from the cares and anxieties of
a large business, engaging in the cultivation and dec-
oration of his .lands, and by a spirit of enterprise
benefiting the community in which he has located.
Socially, he is the most affable of men, and liis genial
good nature and ready wit make him a welcome
guest at many firesides. Occasionally he indulges in
a European tour, where he studies the styles of archi-
tecture and other improvements of the Old World.

A gentleman who has been intimate with the col.
onel since his boyhood says of him, "The colonel is
one of the most genial and social of men. approach-
able to all, frank, truthful, honest, faithful, and ex-
ceedingly generous anil charitable, and while his
Scotch blood tires quickly at an attempt to wrong
him, he is calm and forgiving."

Col. Miller and his wife, who, like himself, is hale
and active, have rive children, three sons anil two
daughters, viz.: Ezra Wilson, Jordan Gray, Dr. Frank
W.. Amanda Josephine, wife of M. L. Hinmau. of
Dunkirk, N. Y., and Hattie M.. wife of J. II. Van
Kirk, of New York. All are married and -ettled in
life, and have apartments especially provided tor
them at the spacious residence of their parents when
visiting " home.''



Boundaries. — The county of Passaic was organized
by an act of the Legislature passed on Feb. 7, 1837.
Its boundaries tire thus defined in the act :

"Alt those parts of the counties of Essex and Bergen contained within
the following boundaries and lines: beginning at the mouth of Yante-
kaw or Third River, at its entrance into the Psasalc River, being the
pr.-3.-ut boundary <<t tie- township ol Acquackaiiuna ; nuwlng thence

Civil Divisions. — The original civil divisions of
Passaic County were Acquackanonk, taken from
Essex, erected into a township in L693; Manchester,

included in Saddle River township, Bergen I'".. prior
to is:;; ; Pompton, erected as part of Bergen County
in 1707 ; and Wot Mill'nrd. taken from Pompton in
1834 In H47 Wayne township was set "if from

Maiiclie-ter. Paterson township was erected from

Acquackanonk in 1831, incorporated in 1851, en-
larged in 1854 and 1855 by the addition of the

First and Second Wards, and again in 1869 by the

annexation of a considerable portion from Little Falls
and Acquackanonk. Little lull- was set on' from
the latter township in 1868. Passaic was erected
from Acquackanonk in 1866; in 1871 it was incor-
porated as a village, anil in 1873 received a city

The present civil divisions of the county are the
cities of Paterson and Passaic and the townships "i
Acquackanonk. Little Falls. Manchester. Pompton,
Wayne, and West Milford.
