I have photos of the Milam Gravestones I listed but I could not see how to attach them or the photo of Milam Chapel in Macon, Missouri. I also have the photo of Thomas Milams 1749 deed (with Translation) is there a way to post these? I have a map of Macon County with the land plots of Mialms also. Let me know if any of this is of interest. Aleita

On the biography of Calaway Jackson Milam there are some errors. It is stated that one of his wifes was Elizabeth Long Black. This is not correct. On 19 Oct 1893 in Franklin Co, AR, C J Milam age 54 married Elizabeth Black age 36. So far we're good. However this Elizabeth Black had been married previously. She was actually Elizabeth "Lizzie" HARPER who married 13 Jun 1880 to M V Black in Franklin Co, AR as well. This Lizzie Harper was the daughter of Edward Harper and his wife Nancy Phillips who are all together in 1860 Greenwood PO, Sebastian Co, AR. After Calaway Jackson Milam died 31 Oct 1898, Elizabeth next married John Walter McGee on 29 Oct 1899 again in Franklin Co, AR. - Will Johnson, Franklin Co AR Historian

According to the obituary that is in the bible, his name was Thurman (Jack) Milam. Born July 20, 1911 son of Mr. and Mrs. H. T. Milam of Greenbrier, Arkansas. He was a sheet metal worker and also operated Jack's Barbecue from 1947 until his death. Survived by his wife Maurine Smith Milam, a brother Ralph N. Milam of Seattle, Washington, and 3 sisters (only 2 are named) Mrs. Willie New of Benton, Arkansas and Mrs. Bill Robbins of Conway, Arkansas.

There's no date on it but it says he was 54 when he died so I guess it was about 1965. I bought the bible at an estate auction here in Conway. I can scan a copy of the obituary and email it if you would like a copy.

In the LDS data base I found a record for a Joan De Millam born in 1201 in Lancashire. Her father is listed, Adam De Millam, but no info for him. She married in 1227 to Robert De Lathom. She beats George of 1375 as the earliest known Milam/Mileham in England.

The Jordan Milam Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution honored the war veteran who was buried in Harrison’s Milam Cemetery in 1851.

The Jordan Milam Chapter of the Arkansas Society Sons of the American Revolution held their 19th annual awards day ceremony Sunday at Milam Cemetery on Silver Valley Road northeast of Harrison. Part of the event honored Jordan Milam, a Revolutionary War soldier who was buried in the cemetery more than 150 years ago. Several of Jordan Milam's descendants, including state Rep. Jim Milum, attended the 1 p.m. event. State chapter president Glenn Railsback and his wife, Susan, traveled from Pine Bluff, while others included Harrison Mayor Bob Reynolds, Boone County Clerk Melinda Mulford, Boone County Prosecutor Gordon Webb, Harry Cikanek, Jane Gardner Jones, Shannon Edmonson, Richard Dix, Al Reid, Norman Rowe, Sally Jo Gibson, Marty Terrill, Tom Fitton, J.O.

I just happened to see the family tree for Sarah Jane (Sallie) Windham, who married John Bartley Milam and John Milton Milam, a cousin of her other Milam husbands. (not my branch of Milam) I found information that Sallie was actually married four times and three of the four where Milams.  

My source is a book titled: The History of Rogers County, Oklahoma.  Copyright 1979 by Claremore College Foundation. This book can be found at Will Rogers Library, 1515 N. Florence, Claremore, OK 74017 

1. Sarah Jane (Sallie) Windham married John Bartley Milam 13 Nov 1856 He died 13 Jul 1861 

2. Sallie married Turner N. Milam, a cousin of her first husband on 01 Dec 1863. They had one son, Turner, shortly before his father was killed in the War. 

3. Sallie's third marriage 10 Oct 1866 to S.S. Hartselle, ended in divorce. Note: no date for divorce, but does go on to say that in 1879 Sallie, her mother, Mrs. Hardy Windham, Willie and Turner moved to Texas.  James T. had married Mary Hutcheson in Moulton on 18 Dec 1879, and they had moved to Dallas, where their descendants still live. 

4. Sallie married John Milton Milam, a cousin of her other Milam husbands, on 14 Jan 1886. They later separated and she spent the rest of her life, except for visits to Texas and Alabama, with Willie's family.  She died 23 Apr, 1929, in Chelsea and is buried in the cemetery there. 

Hope this fills in a few blanks for someone. Carole.lipps@gte.net     alamokin@aol.com

new information obtained from the Tz. Virginia "Annotated Enumeration of All Taxpayers, 1801 to 1820"

(footnote #125, pg 267)  Mrs. A. M. Thomas, 701 west Lobit St., Baytown, Texas 77520, has provided a letter which is very enlightening on one branch of these Davis Families.

The letter is addressed to W. M. Milam, Esq.  (Mrs. Thomas’ uncle whose full name was William Milam, and who was born at Cedar Bayou, Harris County, Texas, served in the Spanish American War, and lived in Richmond Virginia and in New York); and was from William B. Davis of Blackwater, Tennessee. It was written in response to a letter which had been written by Mr. Milam inquiring about information on the ancestors and relatives of W.B. Davis- as he had heard that he was related to the Milams.

“February 28, 1902
Dear Sirs:
Yours of the 17th Inst. was rec’d, several days ago and I have delayed reply in order to think of the facts that I wanted to write. I am a great grandson of William Milam, son of Archibald. William had two sons that I know of, and perhaps three. I know of William and Lewis, but know nothing of William’s family-if he ever had any. I have always been told he went to Texas.

Lewis married in Virginia and finally moved to Tennessee about 1816. He had four sons by a first marriage to wit: William, Lewis, Allen and Andrew; and one son by a second wife. He did not have any girls. Old Lewis died in this county and is buried about two miles from where I live. William I know nothing of.

Allen married a Miss Breeding and lived in Lee County, Virginia, and his descendents live there yet. His grandson William is now sheriff of Lee County and lives at Jonesville, Virginia which is only 15 miles from me. Allen had but one son: Russell who was an M.D. ,Russell had several sons, one, Allen is an M.D. and lives in Missouri. Lewis Jr. moved to Kentucky, Andrew went to Davidson County, Tennessee, north of Cumberland River near Edgefield, now east Nashville, and R.A. of Nashville is one of his sons.

My great grandfather William Milam had four daughters. My grandmother, Elizabeth (Milam), married John Davis who came to this country from Wales...they had seven children: William, Abigal, Mary, Nancy, John, Catherine and Milam...

William married a Miss Davis, but no kin of him, and always lived in Giles County, Virginia.
Abigal married James Stafford and lived at Paintsville, Ky.
Mary married John Stafford and lived in Ky. 9 miles from Paintsville and their descendents live there yet.
Nancy married Francis Grant of New Port Ky.
John married a Miss Baldwin in Virginia and moved to this county where he died leaving only one child, a daughter who married Dr. Richard Mitchell and always lived in this county.
Catherine married Leonard Alkires?) at Covington, Ky. and they moved about 1830 to Sangamon County Ill., now Menard County. They had four sons: Milam, David, Leonard, and John D., Milam and Leonard are dead and David lives in Missouri and John D. at Denver , Colo.

My mother was a Baldwin. Our family consisted of four girls and four boys: John, Elizabeth, William, Mary, Catherine, Julia, George, and Leonard A.   John married a Miss Kinner and raised a large family that scattered from here to Texas. Elizabeth married a Mr. Livesay and raised several children who are also well distributed.

The oldest daughter (of my great grandfather, William Milam) was Mary, who (cont, under footnote #159) married William Fletcher, and from that union had seven sons wit: James, Roland, Elias, Daniel, Joseph, William and Aaron.
James married a Cridemore (Pridemore) and moved to Indiana.
Elias married a McKinney and moved to Kentucky.
Daniel and Joseph I know little about more than Joseph was sporting man attending the races and loving fast horses.
William married a Miss Church and went to Indiana where he died about 1847.
Aaron married a Miss _____and finally went to Alabama.

(letter cont. under footnote#292-Lewis Milam).” Lived in Montgomery County Virginia in 1802(Tz Dd 1-140). Moved to Hawkins County, Tennessee by 1818(tz Dd 3-2) On 26 June 1810 Lewis Milam was appointed attorney by : William Fletcher, Joshua Day, Edward Milam, James Milam. Henry Pruett, Aaron Fletcher(all of Tazweel County) to sue for and recover money hid by James Milam, dec’d and found by Mr. Lewis's son on the plantation where he died in Pittsylvania County (tx Dd 1-446). According to lineag of Bonnie Sage Ball (see page 251) Aaron Fletcher had married the widow of John Davis, whose maiden name had been Milam.

This is substantiated by above, a letter of Wm. B. Davis to Wm. M Milam, started in footnotes #125 and #159, now continued... “One of old William Milam’s daughters married a Mr. Hughs and another married a Mr. Pruett. I know little of their families.  I have met one of the boys, William, who moved from Virginia to this county and died here.

My grandmother, Elizabeth (Milam), married John Davis, who came to this country from Wales about 1775 and was married to Elizabeth Milam in Botetourt County, in 1778, from this union were seven children: William, Abigal, Mary, Nancy, John, Catherine and Milam.
Milam was born April 2, 1794 and his father died in July 1794. I am a son of Milam. My grandfather Davis was a soldier in the war for Independence-served under Gen’l Marion and was at the Battle of King’s Mt. and on the day of the battle his eldest son William was born. At the close of the war he was granted 620 acres of land in Washington County now Tennessee for his service. On this he lived at the time of his death...grandmother moved back to Virginia and her family was brought up there...

My great grandfather, William Milam, married either a Miss Randolph or Miss Winegar, and I think a Miss Randolph-as my father always claimed he kin to the Randolphs, the Floyds and theTaylors...I could have known about this as I have ever seen my grandmother Davis often...

I was born in Hawkins, now Hancock County Tenn., March 6, 1827. I married a Miss Mirchell Jan. 18, 1850 and have always made my home here. We have raised 8 children: Milam H., Thos.L., Huldah, John R., Mary Ann, pattie K., Agnes B., and Robert lee...I was elected clerk of the circuit court in my county in 1847, read law and qualified to practice, went into U.S. Army as Lt. and was promoted to Major in 1864, was U.S. Indian agent in 1866-9, elected to State Senate(of Tenn) in 1890...”
