The couple married on January 3, 1854, in Bloomington, Indiana, and later migrated to the territorial town of Lawrence, Kansas. A supporter of the abolitionist movement, Miller and his partner, Robert G. Elliott, established the Kansas Free State newspaper on January 5, 1855. It is considered to be one of the earliest papers in Kansas to write against the institution of slavery.
