My wife' greatgrandfather was Benjamin Thomas Mills born 12/29/1836 in Marion Co. and died 11/5/1932 in Warren Co KY. He married Elizabeth Stichen Cowles 6/11/1856. After his mother had died, he and some of the others were given to neighbors or relatives to be raised. Benjamin was given to Israel Cannon who moved to Edmonson/Warren Co.
Benjamin's father Stephen Mills b. 6/7/1787 m.1/14/1829 Anne Nancy Raley. Anne's parents was reported to be Henry Raley who m. Mary Stone. Stephen' parents were Ignatus Mills b. 11/16/1758 @ Leonardtown MD, m. 11/14/1781 to Mary Manning.
A question I would like to know was were the Indian connection was. Benjamin was probable half Indian. Indian features were carried down to some of his g-grandchildren. Was Israel Cannon a relative? He also had Indian features.
