Mary Louisa Macculloch Miller (1804-1888) grew up at Macculloch Hall and raised her children and grandchildren there. She was remembered by her family as “simple in all her tastes, humble in all her thoughts, refined in all her instincts, charitable in every word and deed, gifted with a beautiful intellect and a wondrously sound judgement…”
Life was not always easy. Her sons fought in the Civil War and she became the matriarch of the Macculloch-Miller family after the deaths of her father, George Macculloch (1775-1858) and her husband, Jacob Miller (1800-1862).
We are thankful for women who are role models through their actions.
