L. B. Miller Killed

The  Gazette
December 12, 1900

Mr. L. B. Miller, a large planter of Union Parish, was killed last Saturday evening near Co____ crossroads, while on his way home from Monroe. Mr. Miller was riding horseback and was engaged in a race with another party. While racing the animal, it doubtlessly became uncontrollable; at any rate Mr. Miller was hurled against a tree beside the road, being struck in the race with such force that his forehead and side of his face was terribly crushed. His son John and several lads were near him at the time of the accident, but the injured man died shortly thereafter. He leaves a wife and several children to mourn his death.
