About Warren Miller

Warren Miller (April 2, 1847 – December 29, 1920) was a lawyer and Republican politician from West Virginia who served as a United States Representative in the 54th and 55th United States Congresses.


Miller was born at Apple Grove in Meigs County, Ohio. Around 1850, he moved to Millwood, Virginia in Jackson County, in what later became West Virginia. He taught school after graduating from the Ohio University at Athens and studied law. He was admitted to the bar and commenced practice in Ripley, West Virginia in 1871. He also served as mayor of Ripley in 1871. He became Jackson County's prosecuting attorney in 1878 and served until 1890. He was chosen to be a delegate to the 1884 Republican National Convention. He was a member of the West Virginia House of Delegates in 1890 and 1891.

His bid to become a judge of the State Supreme Court in 1892 was unsuccessful. Although he won election to the Fifty-fourth and Fifty-fifth Congresses (March 4, 1895 – March 3, 1899), he was not a candidate for renomination in 1898. He returned to the practice of law and pursued an interest in agriculture. He returned to the bench with an appointment to the Fifth Judicial Circuit Court of West Virginia. He was elected to the court in 1902 and served until his resignation in 1903. He served as a judge of the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals in 1903 and 1904. He served as a member of the State Senate from 1914 to 1918. He died in Ripley, West Virginia, and was buried in Cottageville Cemetery in Cottageville, West Virginia.
