I have a neighbour whose maiden name was MILAM she would like to know if there are any residents of Milam County who have that surname. She can be reached via my e-mail address just reference it to Mary and I'll pass on any message. Your help in anything to make a dream come true for my neighbour will be greatly appreciated, she didn't know yopu county existed until we did a search for her surname recently. Thank you.
Milam Co. was named for Benjamin Rush Milam, born in Frankfort, Kentucky. To my knowledge, he never set foot in Milam Co. Famous for Battle of San Antonio and was killed there. There would no relatives in this county to Ben Milam that we are aware of.. Now there is one lady in the County Tel. directory that had the name of Milam. She is Elizabeth J. Milam, 514 Evelyn St., Rockdale, TX 76567. 512 446-3224. Find none in other towns in Milam..
My father J.L. Milam, (deceased) has a grandson Dakota Milam
who lives in Cameron, Tx. His mother Poppy works at the dry cleaners that her grandmother has owned for many years. My brother Quanah Milam (deceased) was Dakota's father. Family roots are as follows:
John Milam from Virginia, father of Adam Milam and Ben R. Milam. Adam Milam is Dakota's 6th, gggggggrandfather Adam is a brother to Benjamin Rush Milam
Adam Milam 1727
James Milam 1817
Adam Sampson Milam 1784
John Lenzie Milam 1835
Lee Sylvester Milam my grandfather (I'm Dakota's Aunt)
J.L. (INO) Milam Sr. Dakotas grandfather
Quanah Milam Dakota's father
So, see you do have a Milam living in Milam Co. that is kin
to Benjamin Rush Milam. Just a tidbit of information.
Thank You Dorcas Milam
Re: Milam Family------ Mary
My name is Christy Ann Milan. My original name should be Milam but somehow it had been changed. My father is John Henry James Milan and we was born in Mt. Enterprise Texas to Lorraine Milam. I remember as a child I would talk to people in Texas that were my relatives...maybe a Faye...not sure. I hope we can help one another and I also hope too many years have not past since your posting...
Please let me hear from you in regards to receiving this at least.
Thank you for your time,
