Dynamite Explosion

Heller, David & Fred Miller - Clay City Reporter, 1890-06-27, p. 2David Heller and Fred Miller, of Brazil, were killed by an explosion of dynamite, last Friday. The two men were torn to pieces in a horrible manner, and the Times states that “the only way the two dead men could be told apart was by their clothes and difference in their size. Both are married men and leave families.”

Frederick Miller, one of the men killed by an explosion of dynamite, at Brazil, last Friday, was the father of Miss Viola Miller, who was killed last summer by a piece of terra cotta cornice falling upon her.

Frederick Miller was buried at Cottage Hill Cemetery, Brazil, Indiana. His tombstone is quite spectacular and non-traditional. His daughter Viola was also memorialized on the same stone. Find A Grave
