    • An obituary in The Gentleman’s Magazine July - December 1866 on July 15 reads:
      'At Moneymore, co. Londonderry, aged 85, Major Rowley Miller. The deceased was the sixth son of the late John Miller, esq., of Moneymore (who died in 1820), by Margaret, dau. of P. Oulton, esq., of Dublin. He was born in 1781, and in 1798 was appointed to the Londonderry Militia, of which regiment he became Major in September, 1850. Major Miller, who was senior officer of all the militias of Great Britain and Ireland, was a magistrate for the cos. Antrim and Tyrone, a D.L. and J.P. for the co. Londonderry, and was for forty-six years agent to the estates of the Worshipful the Drapers’ Company. Several of Mr. Miller’s ancestors took an active part during the siege of Londonderry. He married, in 1806, Margaret, dau. of the Rev. Thomas Torrens, by whom he has left, with other issue, a son, John Rowley Miller, esq., now of Moneymore, who was born in 1808, and married, in 1830, Emily Charlotte, dau. of the late Rev. Henry Stewart, D.D., and niece of the late Sir J. Stewart, bart., of Ballygawley, co. Tyrone.'
