Edward T. Miller (ca. 1856 – October 1881) was a Missouri born outlaw and a younger brother of outlaw Clell Miller.

Little is known about Miller, except that he took part in several robberies with Jesse James, especially after the downfall of Jesse's James-Younger gang. They robbed a train in Glendale, Missouri, in 1879 and one in Blue Cut, Missouri, in 1881.

The Kansas City Times [October 31, 1881] reported that Miller was killed by Jesse James in October, 1881. According to some sources he was killed for talking too much about the Kansas City Fair robbery, which took place in 1872. Others say Miller became drunk one night and told a marshal about a train robbery that was to take place in the near future. The Times story speculated that a woman was involved. According to family history, however, Miller and James faked Edward's death in order for him to leave the James-Younger gang. Edward moved to Kentucky where he lived the rest of his life.[citation needed]
