BARRETT, LAY, MILLIGAN posted by Anne Barrett Chamlee on Wednesday, January 22, 1997

My great great grandfather, Tom MILLIGAN, born I know not where, but died in Arkansas, married Elizabeth Jane LAY born 1835 died Quitman, Arkansas. An old hand-written paper in the family states the daughter of this couple, Laura Emma MILLIGAN, was born in "Round Rock, San Saba, Texas." My research found Round Rock in Williamson County, not San Saba. Laura Emma MILLIGAN married James Nathaniel BARRETT and they are both buried at Quitman, Arkansas. Their son, Edna Howard BARRETT (1879-1963) was my grandfather who lived nearly all his life in Heber Springs, Cleburne Co., AR -- have nothing on the MILLIGAN family -- thanks.

BROWN, JONES, ROBBINS, SCOTT, SUTTON posted by Karen Gauny Crisalli on Thursday, January 23, 1997

SUTTON, Phillip D(avid). Phillip D. SUTTON is beleived to have been born around 1832 in Travis or Falls Co. He married Sarah Jane SCOTT (born about June 1840 in Arkansas?)probably in early 1870's, but it is very likely that he was married and widowed before her. Phillip D. SUTTON was shot and killed in Lampassas 1873 late at night at his home. He and/or his wife may have been part or full blooded Indian. Phillip D. SUTTON fathered my gr. grm. Emma Linne SUTTON (b. 1874, married William Adolphus JONES 1892); Sarah SUTTON (b. 1871, married Claude Carr). There were two other children: Willy (Willie) SUTTON and Iscoe SUTTON (born Feb. 14 1869, married Susan Emily BROWN in 1894), but it is unclear if Willy was truly Phillip's child from a previous marriage, or if he was Sarah SCOTT's child from a previous marriage (in several census he is listed as SUTTON, but in at least one census he is listed as ROBBINS). I am very interested in knowing the circumstances behind Phillip D. SUTTON's shooting, and the names of the parents of both Phillip SUTTON and Sarah Jane SCOTT. Thanks!

posted by Patrick O'Neill on Monday, February 17, 1997

Wanting information from all descendants of colonists from Fisher and Miller's Colony, including Coke, Tom Green, Runnels, Concho, McCulloch, San Saba, Mason, Schleicher, Irion, Kimble, Menard, and Sutton counties. These are the counties that were actually within the grant and contain lands distributed to the colonists. I have indexes of Contracts (papers signed in Germany to join the Society), Transfers (papers to sign over half of the colonist's land to the Society and Fisher and Miller), and am now compiling a list of people that actually received land within the colony. Other related counties should include Comal, Gillespie, Kendall, Kerr, Bexar, and many southeast Texas counties.
