    Notes 
    • Ellen was one of four children of Luke Baker and Eunice (Lowe) who joined the Oneida Community. The others were James Baker, Harriet B. Hall and Philena B. Hamilton.

      Under the inspiration of John H. Noyes's healing of her sister Harriet, and his personal ministry, Ellen became a Perfectionist at age 19 in 1847. She joined the Oneida Association on July 9, 1848 and three days later married Otis H. Miller. She had no children and worked as a housekeeper and cook in the Community, and later as assistant cook to Jane Kinsley in the kitchen at Niagra Falls. She was tall and slender and had participated in Community drama performances with Abram Burt. Gertrude Noyes would say "her cooking showed the same delicate and exquisite quality which she had radiated as a person." Ellen Baker Miller died at the age of 74.
