Cradle of the Breed: Gerrit Smith Miller & The Kriemhild Herd by Dr. Milton C. Sernett

The New York Holstein Historical Site sign and a commemoration boulder just north of Peterboro credits Gerrit Smith's grandson Gerrit Smith Miller with the importation of the first registered Holstein-Friesian breed in  1869. Miller's brother Charles Dudley Miller, Jr. arranged and escorted the first Miller Kriemheld herd of four from Holland to Peterboro.
