Biographical history

Jonathan Miller (1834-1914) was born in Melbourne, Ontario, and married Margaret Springer in 1855. He left for B.C. in 1862, with his brother-in-law, Benjamin Springer, for the Cariboo Gold Rush. His wife, Margaret, and children joined him in 1864. During that same year, he became a member of the New Westminster City Council. In 1871 he was appointed Granville townsite's first constable and government agent. In 1886, Miller became Vancouver's first postmaster, a position he held until 1909, when he retired at the age of 75.
