Thursday, September 27, 1934

Rained today. Walked home from school. Got some pears. Ruth Ray and Pauline down. Played cards.

Death photo of Clell Miller
Clell Miller (January 9, 1850 - September 7, 1876)
AKA Cleland D. Miller or Clenand Miller or McClelland Miller

Miller was an outlaw with the James-Younger Gang who was killed during the gang's robbery at Northfield, Minnesota. He was born on either January 9, 1850 (the date on his tombstone) or December 15, 1849 in Kearney, Missouri. His younger brother Edward T. Miller also joined the gang and was allegedly killed by Jesse James in 1881.

Miller's body was photographed (see "death photo", above) and then buried in Northfield. However, his father claimed the body and Miller was buried at Muddy Fork Cemetery in Kearney.
