THE WESTERN STAR, 22 July 1904
Emma Maria Miller, daughter of Rev. Allen Miller (late of the Northern New York conference) and Maria Miller, was born in Dickinson, Franklin co., New York, on February 6, 1853, and departed this life July 16,
1904, at Topeka, Kansas, aged 51 years, 5 months and 10 days. She was united in marriage to Rev. Chas. E. Williams (now pastor of the M. E. church in Coldwater) at Ohio, Herkimer co., New York on October 18,
1875. Of this union four children were born (one dying in infancy) -- Clarence E. of Cheney, Kansas; Mrs. Gertrude M. Harwell of Dodge City, and Gerry M. Williams, who lives with his father in Coldwater, Kansas. In 1876 they moved to Chautauqua co., New York; in 1878 to Erie co., Pennsylvania, and in 1880 to Sedgwick co., Kansas, where in 1882 Rev. Williams joined the Southwest Kansas conference. Deceased was well fitted for the work of a Methodist pastor's wife, as she was born and reared in a Methodist minister's home. She was an efficient helper in the home, pastoral and revival work, and especially among young people.

Always a lover of the Master, at about the age of 10, in a meeting held by her father, she consciously received a knowledge of her acceptance with God. It was her greatest delight to labor for others. Burial took place in the Topeka cemetery at 4 p.m. on Sunday. Rev. W. L. Dexter of Topeka, formerly pastor of the M. E. church in Coldwater, conducted the services. The bereaved husband and children have the sincere sympathy of all.
