The Mountain Miller: An Authentic Narrative by William A. Hallock (PDF)
Joseph Beals (1752-1813), also called the Mountain Miller, lived a life of trusting in his own righteousness for the salvation of his soul. He was strict with his family. The townspeople thought he was blameless. After he lost his house to a fire, he turned and consecrated his life to Christ. His wife was very upset with his new life and steadfastly refused join him, and even hoped for his death. She finally repented and united with him in the faith. Joseph Beals was known as a model of true Christian piety.
