MILLER, Warner, senator, born in Oswego county, New York, 12 August, 1838. His parents were of German extraction, and his grandfather served as a colonel in the Revolutionary army. Warner was graduated at Union in 1860. He enlisted a few months later as a private in a New York cavalry regiment, served under General Philip H. Sheridan in the Shenandoah valley, and was promoted lieutenant. At the battle of Winchester he was taken prisoner, and paroled on the field. Soon afterward he was honorably discharged and went abroad, where he became interested in paper-manufacturing, and on his return he established himself in this business in Herkimer, New York, where he still (1888) resides. His first active participation in politics was in 1872, when he was a delegate to the National Republican convention at Philadelphia. He was in the legislature in 1874-'8, was elected to congress as a Republican in 1878, and re-elected in 1880, but in 1881 was chosen United States senator from New York to fill the unexpired term of Thomas C. Platt, who had resigned. His term expired in 188% when he was succeeded by Frank Hiscock.
