MILLER, Henry, Jr.

From the Volga in Russia - Neidermouju

            b.  9 Nov 1886

From Ellsworth County Independent/Reporter -  10 August 2010 - Written by Dorothy Grothusen

Wilson man found a homeland in America.  In honor of the 50th anniversary of Wilson After Harvest Czech Festival, the Ellsworth County Independent-Reporter is republishing this story, which appeared in the March 10, 1977, edition of the Wilson World. Henry Miller, Sr., a 90-year-old Wilson resident of German descent, counts his many blessings for leaving Russia in 1912 and coming to the United States to live a good life.
Miller, who retired from the meat business in Wilson in 1958, says his secret for keeping active is being busy all the time.  “I clean my own house (a large two-story), do my laundry and my own cooking like the beans and ham hocks and doughnuts I made today," Miller said in broken English.
“I will plant a large garden again this spring." Pans on a table in a corner of his kitchen contain miniature tomato, cabbage and tomato seedlings that will be large enough to set out in his garden when it is time.
“I've had a good life here and if I would have stayed in Russia I might be a long time gone like my mother and the rest of them. My youngest sister was shipped to Siberia. She is 76 years old now but I haven't heard from her for about a year," Miller said.
Miller was born Nov. 9, 1886, in the fertile river valley of the Volga River in Russia where his parents were also born. They were descendants of the Germans who had moved to that area during the reign of Empress Catherine II, also known as Catherine the Great. The Empress made a pact that allowed the Germans to live in Russia for 100 years without serving in the army.
“I had to go into the Russian army because the 100 years had already passed," Miller said. “I went into the czar's army Nov. 28, 1908, and got out Nov. 28, 1911," Miller said. (The czar, Nicholas II, was the last czar Russia was to have.)
“People saw the revolution coming. It wasn't safe to be on the streets. The rich were getting richer; the poor got poorer," Miller said.
“When I got out of the army they told me I could go straight to the United States." His voice faltered and tears came to his eyes. “But I wanted to go home first to see my brothers and sisters at Neidermouju (his hometown three miles from the Volga River). My parents both died while I was in the army."
In the early part of 1912, Miller sailed for the United States never to return to his homeland.
“I was on the ship on the ocean (Atlantic) the night the Titanic hit an iceberg and sank," he recalled.
After docking at Portland, Maine, Miller went to Chicago where he was met by a friend from the same hometown in Russia.  Lots of German-Russians were in Chicago and Sheboygan, Wisc.," he said.
“I got a job, worked for 17 cents an hour —10-hour days. They paid us in gold. We could buy more then. There were no taxes.
“I went to Sheboygan to see my uncle and take a rest but I got another job for six months. The German-Russians were always good workers — like they were in Russia where they were good farmers and built big homes.:
Miller met his future wife, a native of the Dubuque neighborhood southwest of Wilson, while she was on a visit to Chicago.
By June of 1920, the Millers and their three children moved from Chicago to Wilson, and Miller remembers his first job of pitching wheat with a threshing outfit.
It was not long before he was in the meat business in Russell and in 1926 he bought a meat business in Wilson. “There were a lot of bad times," he said. “When you can't sell three pounds of hamburger for a quarter, you know those are hard times. People had no money, couldn't pay for their lights or the rent.
“There were times I didn't have a nickel in my pockets, no job and 10 mouths to feed.
“I went to the banker to borrow money. He said, ‘What do you have?" I say, 8 kids.
“But I never gave up. I figured the Lord would help me. I was always a hustler.
“In 1938 we had the meat market in the house. The kids all helped and we got back on our feet."
Business improved when there was a shortage of meat during the war. Some weeks the Millers butchered an average of 50 to 75 hogs and 35 head of cattle a week to furnish meat from Ellsworth to Great Bend and from Russell to Lucas and Downs.
“I think about the hard life in Russia where people froze to death and starved to death by the thousands — that was bad business," Miller said.
“Then I think about the good time we had when my wife and some of the family went to Minnesota on a fishing trip 18 years ago. We should take time for a good time when we can.
“On last Nov. 9 (Miller's 90th birthday) there were 74 of the family around the table at the church (Lutheran church in Wilson). I liked the big blowout."
Since the death of his wife nine years ago, he cherishes more than ever those visits from the families of his eight children, Henry, Jr., Levi (deceased), Velma, Arlene, Edwin, Helen, Orrin and Margaret.
“Keep busy, have a good time, but don't be so hungry for the almighty dollar. The Lord helps you anyway — He takes care of you," Miller said.
