The Reverend Miller


There is an interesting tombstone located against the wall of St Stephen's Presbyterian Church in South Grafton. When the Reverend Miller died in 1855 he was buried at the Presbyterian Manse on nearby Wilson's Hill/Bent St. By the early 20th century the Manse had been sold into private hands and in 1929 the gravestone was moved to the church.
Miller is still buried somewhere on the hill but now his grave is unmarked.

    1. Yes Red, certainly the meaning of this word has changed over the last 150 years.

  4. How interesting. Such wonderful wording on the stone. 45 is really no age at all, is it. I hope the Reverend still rest peacefully.

  5. one does have to go back into another world and remember that being a zealot was once a very good and honorable thing!
