The past few weeks I have been writing about two of Jacob Miller’s sons, Christian “Chris” Miller and Jacob Miller Jr, writing about the time they spent working in the oil fields of California, Oklahoma, and Texas around 1910. The Miller family saved their postcards from their time out west and those picture postcards gave me enough information to create a timeline of their brief time spent there. They both died young out west. Chris of typhoid in Texas and Jacob Jr in Oklahoma, killed when parts of an oil derrick fell on him.
