MILLER, CHARLES EDWARD (1898~1971) Charles E. Miller was born in Frio County, Texas around 1893. There is some dispute about his actual birth year. He was educated in San Antonio and attended Old Main High School. Before becoming a regular Ranger in 1919, Miller served as a special ranger and as a deputy sheriff in Bexar County.

Miller served in the Rangers from 1919 until 1925, serving in companies C, E, F, and Headquarters. Much of his time was spent in the border regions of south Texas. After leaving the Rangers, Miller again held commissions as a special Ranger working for several railroad companies as well as an inspector for the Sheep and Goat Raisers Association.

Miller again joined the Texas Rangers in 1951. Prior to his enlistment he was employed by the Schreiner Bank and the Kerr County Livestock Association. Over the next 17 years he served in locations including Carizzo Springs, Paducah, Luling, Comanche and Mason. At various times he was a member of companies C, D and F. He retired from the Texas Rangers in 1968.

Charlie Miller died December 8, 1971, and was buried in the State Cemetery in Austin, Texas. Colonel Wilson E. Speir praised Miller for "a highly distinguished career of service. . . [whose] example and dedication stands as an inspiration to all law enforcement officers."
