The Navy Department Saturday announced the names of additional Ohio casualties. The list included Harley E. Miller, Private First Class, U.S. Marine Corps Reserve. He was reported as dead [November 21, 1943]. Mother, Mrs. Ruth Miller, Leesburg, was listed as next of kin.
An extensive check was made by the Hillsboro newspapers and the Wilmington News-Journal but no trace of Pfc. Miller or a Mrs. Ruth Miller could be found in either Clinton or Highland counties.
The correct address of Pfc. Harley E. Miller, U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, who was listed by the Navy Department as a Highland County war casualty last Saturday has been learned. According to information received Thursday Pfc. Miller’s correct home address was Chillicothe R. R. 7. His mother lives at this address. It was also learned that she received notice of her son’s death last week. Reason for the Leesburg address is believed to have been because the youth was under the minimum enlistment age.
