Notes for Edward James Miller:

Edward was a Minister.

Preacher Ed Miller used to hold prayer meetings in his home near Buncomb road. James Cofield Williams said that Preacher Ed held a cottage prayer meeting at a neighbors home, Mr. & Mrs. Acie Casper. It was early summer and the Casper's had not taken down their wood heater for the summer as people did in those days. So she wanted the heater to look better for the meeting, and she painted it up real good that day with Stove Black. And that night, Preacher Ed stood near the heater to preach. After preaching for awhile he began to he started wiping sweat off of his forehead with his hand, then later laid his hand on the heater, and kept wiping his head and face with his hand, not realizing that he had stove polish on his hand, and the people started laughing and snickering, and he couldn't understand why they were laughing, and no one said, so he decided he better close the meeting. After he got home and walked by a big mirror he had, he then realized what they were laughing about.
