MILLER,WILLIAM A. -- The name William A. Miller was by mistake placed on the bronze plaque in the San Jacinto Memorial Monument on which are inscribed the names of the Texans who participated in the Battle of San Jacinto. The name should be WILLIAM A. MILLEN.

SEE the sketch of Mr. Millen in this San Jacinto volume.
