Cincinnatus Heiner "Joaquin" Miller, who gained fame in Oregon as America's "Poet of the Sierras", lived from 1848-52 in Newcastle township of Fulton County. His family's home and the rude schoolhouse where he attended classes taught by his father, Hulings, were located one mile north and one-tenth mile east of here. Miller is best known for his poem "Columbus". Many of his works recall his boyhood in Fulton County. He died in 1913.
