A good friend of mine had an engine just like this for many years. Dont know who got it after he sold it but anyway it is an American Boy engine. My friend searched for many months to identify his and finally spoke with someone who had an original booklet showing this engine. Probably about 1 1/2-2 h.p. it is very unusual the way the main bearing caps bolt on. I have a picture of his engine somewhere, will try to find it and post it here in a day or so. Very nice engine!

Hi, Chuck, I think it is a George Miller made in Iowa for Thomas Jeffery, the builder of the Jeffery Car, in Kenosha, WI. I just saw an original one at a sale last year. It was closer to you than me. Hope this helps, Jason.

It was made by Goerge B Miller and sons company. I have the same engine with the original tag. Once I figure out how to post photos I can post my engine and tag that's on it.
