The Milliner, Milner, Millinder name is spelled several different ways. It seems that the Johnston Co, NC Millinders used the "Milliner" and "Millinder" most often. Do you know the name of John's siblings? Do you know where they were located before they went to TX? "Milner" has a big message board. Most variations of the name Milliner go to that board so you might want to check at that location. The Wilkinson's came into our family line when Cynthia Milliner/Millinder and Alsey Sellers daughter Jane -- married Milton Joshua (MJ) Childers (from Mississippi).They met in Johnston Co, NC after the Civil War. They had a daughter named Fannie J. who married Reuben Wilkinson. He was the 4th. Reuben of that family line. Some of this line may have gone west and the Wards (Asa Sr.) also married into this line. Let me know if I can be of more help.
