Mr. Casey,
Eureka! The clues you provided helped us find your answer. 
According to John's [Miller's] birth announcement:

"Miller--Mr. and Mrs. Victor of 17 Rickens Trail, Denville, 
twin sons yesterday at Memorial Hospital."---The Daily Record 
[Morris County NJ], December 14, 1949, p. 8 (copy is poor, 
but we can fax and/or mail for your records).
Memorial Hospital was likely the presently named Morristown 
Memorial Hospital. So? Technically, that is their birthplace.

Further digging (by me) reveals that 17 Rickens Trail, 
Denville is only about 50 yards from a body of water called 
"Indian Lake" [True].  17 Rickens Trail is 200 meters from 
where Interstate-287 intersects Route-202; it's also 5 miles 
northwest of Morris Plains; 10 miles northwest of 
*Morristown* (and 3 miles northeast of Mount Fern). 
The co-ordinates of Morristown Memorial Hospital are: 
40 degrees, 53', 28.06" North, 
and 74 degrees, 29', 5.81" West.   :>)

PS:  Mrs. Miller was considerably ahead of the times:  music was played in
both the delivery room and in her hospital room.
