I beleive I have the right parents for my gggf Samuel Houston Milligan but can not confirm it.
Samuel Houston MILLIGAN (abt1829 - 7 Feb 1891) married Mary LOFTICE (1840-?) on 23 Oct. 1849 in Blount County, TN
Several other members have his parents listed as Julius Washington MILLIGAN Sr (1777-1839) and Catherine HART.
On one site I read they had the following children, and my grandfather was not listed as one of them.
John A Milligan (1793 – 1892)
Julius Washington Milligan Jr. (1800 – ?1850)
Barton Milligan (1824 – )
William Riley Milligan (1825 – 1877)
Mynatt Milligan (1826 – )
What leads me to beleive so far that I am on the right track, is the 1850 census shows the following male Milligan's living in blount county:
Baitly - 26
Ma*Natt - 24
Saml. - 21
What is even more interesting is that Saml. had a female, Kathl. 63 years old that was born in KY living with him. I really believe that this is Catherine.
Is there anyone out there that can support my hunch!
