MILLER, John M

JOHN M. MILLER DEAD.
Prominent Furniture Man and Respected Resident Gone.

Death yesterday again claimed a prominent business man and honored resident of this city when John M. Miller passed from this life. He had been ailing for some time and during the past year and a half was unable to attend to business at times.
The end of the well-spent life came at 12:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon at the family residence, 52 East Jefferson street. He was able to be about the house at times until Sunday evening when he grew worse. At 11 o'clock yesterday he was moved from his bed and at the time his condition did not seem to be such that any immediate danger was entertained. At noon he began to sink and in half an hour his sufferings were at an end.
Mr. Miller was one of the oldest, if not the oldest business man in this city. He began his furniture business in the same place where the store is located at present and began housekeeping after his his marriage in the house where he died.
John M. Miller was born on a farm near Sunbury, Northumberland county, Pa., September 20, 1817. When quite young he left the farm and went to Williamsport, Pa., where he learned the trade of a chairmaker. Completing his trade Mr. Miller decided to come west, and in the fall of 1839 he arrived in Fort Wayne, having walked from Toledo to this city.
In 1840 Mr. Miller bought Mr. Tower's interest in the furniture store of Johnson, Miller & Tower, and for a time he and his brother conducted this business. At one time Louis Peltier was a partner of Mr. Miller. Mr. Miller has been in the furniture business in Fort Wayne since that day, almost 60 years ago, when he bought out Mr. Tower. There are some firms which may be older, but no man who in 1840 conducted a business establishment in Fort Wayne still continues in business.
On September 11, 1845, Mr. Miller was married to Miss Sarah Noble in this city and to them were born seven children, three of whom are living, as follows: Mrs. W. A. Croxton, C. A. Miller and Mrs. Stephen Morris, all of whom reside in Fort Wayne and were at home when death claimed the aged father. A little less than three years ago Mr. and Mrs. Miller celebrated their golden wedding.
Deceased was a consistent member of the Methodist church during his entire life and had been prominent in the affairs of that religious denomination ever since he came to Fort Wayne. He was a communicant of Wayne street church and since his arrival in Fort Wayne has seen the congregation build three edifices of worship. He was also one of the founders of the Methodist college.
Mr. Miller was a member of the Masonic fraternity and it is possible this society will have charge of the funeral services, although that has not been determined.
Mr. Miller has been identified with the business interests of Fort Wayne ever since it was a little village and has seen it grow into the third city of the state and one of the most progressive of the west. With this progress he was always more or less identified and his familiar form will be missed by scores of people who have grown gray since they knew his friendly face.

MILLER, Sarah Noble

MRS. J. M. MILLER CLAIMED BY DEATH
WAS THE WIDOW OF A PIONEER BUSINESS MAN

Mrs. Sarah Miller, widow of the late John. M. Miller, and one of the pioneer residents of Fort Wayne, died Sunday night at the family home, 216 East Jefferson street, at the age of 80 years. Death was due to weakened heart action, resultant from the infirmities of age. Mrs. Miller, whose maiden name was Sarah Noble, was born at Poughkeepsie, N. Y., August 11, 1825, and came with her parents to Fort Wayne at the age of twelve years, making the trip to this city by way of the lakes to Toledo, and thence over the Wabash and Erie canal. The family located on a farm east of the city, and following their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Miller took up their residence in the East Jefferson street residence, which was continuously their home thereafter. The husband was a pioneer furniture dealer and the family was very widely known. Mrs. Miller was the mother of seven children, three of whom survive. They are Mrs. W. A. Croxton, Mrs. Stephen Morris and Cassius Miller, all of this city. There is also a brother, Lyman Miller, residing on a farm three miles east of Fort Wayne. Mrs. Miller many years ago became a member of the Berry street M.E. church, later transferring her membership to the Wayne street congregation. She was a most estimable woman, devoted, sincere and kindly, and leaves a legion of friends. Funeral services from the residence Wednesday afternoon, conducted by Rev. A. S. Preston, of the Wayne street M.E. church.

PALUMBO, Louie

Franklin National founder is dead
Tuesday services have been scheduled for Franklin National Life Insurance Co. founder Louie Palumbo, 60, who died at home Friday. Allen County Coroner Phillip O'Shaughnessy said today Palumbo died of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Palumbo founded Franklin in 1961. He resigned as president and chairman of the board in January 1983 after Franklin encountered severe financial problems. The company now is under liquidation by the Indiana Department of Insurance. Franklin still owns real estate at 2100 Goshen Road, including the Olympia Athletic Club, said Mike FitzGibbons, chief examiner of the state insurance department. FitzGibbons said Franklin's policies recently were transferred to United Founders Life Insurance Co. of Oklahoma City in exchange for a portion of Franklin's assets. The company had its best sales year in 1982, when sales totaled about $8.5 million. But those hefty sales caused difficulties because new policies are expensive to service.

Under Indiana law, companies must maintain a surplus - the amount by which assets exceed liabilities. But Franklin sold so many policies that its surplus was not large enough under Indiana law. At the time, Palumbo said that the problems occurred because he thought real estate could be counted as an asset under Indiana law. But the state ruled that real estate could not be counted, which caused the surplus shortfall. Franklin was placed in liquidation in September.
Palumbo was a veteran of World War II and a member of St. Vincent Catholic Church, Knights of Columbus Council No. 451 Father Brandon chapter, Anthony Wayne Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus and the Fort Wayne Serra Club.
Surviving are his wife, Jean M.; four daughters, Linda Reynolds, Laura McArdle, Tamara Miller and Kim Palumbo, all of Fort Wayne; a son, Jerry L. of Fort Wayne; a brother, Vito D. of Leo; and two sisters, Grace Gardt of Fort Wayne and Rose Marie McKimson of Troy, Mich. Services are 11 a.m. Tuesday in St. Vincent Catholic Church. Calling is from 2 to 5 and 7 to 9 p.m. today in D.O. McComb & Sons Maplewood Park Funeral Home, 4017 Maplecrest Road, with a rosary recited there at 8 p.m. Burial will be in Catholic Cemetery, Auburn. Preferred memorials are gifts to the church.
