Carol Milam-Ogden's Family History for William Freer Milam Sr

Carol Milam-Ogden is my Sister who is the Family Genealogist

 

FIRST GENERATION - Thomas Milam (circa 1716 - 1775)

Thomas Milam was born no later than 1716 in Virginia. He died probably in early 1775 in Bedford County, Virginia. Thomas married, probably about 1744 in Virginia, to a woman named Mary Rush, daughter of William Rush IV.

All records of a Thomas Milam that appear in the early Virginia records, prior to 1775, are most likely our Thomas Milam.  There are very few records using the Milam surname in Virginia prior to 1770, and therefore, those entries must be of the same individuals, usually our Thomas and John.  Early records indicate that Thomas Milam was in a part of Orange county, Virginia, as early as 1737, which became Culpeper County, Virginia in 1749. He was living on the north side of Doubletop Mountain. Today, Milam Gap is on the Skyline Drive of Shenandoah National Park and lies on the north side of Doubletop Mountain.

The earliest record of Thomas Milam, is dated March 24, 1737, at a court held for Orange County, Virginia when a petition by David Williams, an assignee for William Smith, was brought against Thomas Mylam and Francis Williams asking for four hundred pounds of tobacco due by bill. Judgement was granted for the plaintiff against the aforesaid Thomas Mylam and Francis Williams who were ordered to pay the four hundred pounds of tobacco.

Robert Willbanks, genealogist and a Milam descendant, believes that this is our Thomas Milam because it begins following a pattern of records for a Thomas Milam who lived on Doubletop Mountain in the part of Orange County, Virginia which later becomes Culpeper County. To appear in a court dated 1737, Thomas had to be of his majority, 21 years of age. Therefore, Thomas had to be born before 1716 which is not unreasonable because when he dies in 1775, he would only be 59 years of age.

He was married to Mary Rush about 1740 in Virginia. Mary Rush was born in 1728 in Westmoreland County, Virginia. She died in circa 1778 in Virginia. Thomas MILAM and Mary RUSH had the following children:

In 1835 Rush filed for a Revolutionary War Veteran's Pension as a resident of Kanawha County, Virginia. In this application for pension, Rush stated that at the age of 2, in 1761, his family moved to Bedford County, Virginia from Culpepper County, Virginia. He also stated in his pension application that he migrated to Botetourt County, Virginia in 1786, but he still appears on the Bedford County tax records until 1792. He may not have actually moved to Botetourt County until after 1792.

On March 7, 1787, William and Rush Mileham of Bedford County, Virginia sold to the town of Liberty, Bedford County, Virginia, 100 acres on Reed Creek. On July 26, 1803, Rush Milam and Elizabeth, his wife, sold their two town lots, number 2 and 3, in Liberty, Bedford County, Virginia to William Mitchell.

L. as it appears in his will.   I will use the name on the birth record. Colonel Leftridge Milam was born in a large log house at the mouth of the Phillips Hollow in Poca District. The house burned in 1935.

According to William “Bob” J. Glass Jr, son of Rosa Pearl Milam Glass:

He was about five feet eight inches tall and weighed about 135 lbs. He had red hair, blue eyes, and a fair skin. Physically he was not too strong, having been injured by a severe case of typhoid fever in his youth. One arm and both feet were crippled with arthritis. He was very intelligent, high strung, energetic, ambitious, and a shrewd business man.

He accumulated about seven hundred acres of land in Poca District above Sissonville. He was considered a very successful farmer and stockman. He was very firm and dictatorial particularly with his family. He was good to them but demanded strict adherence to orders; none ever crossed him. He was good to the men who worked for him and several of them who stayed with him for any length of time were able to buy a farm or place to live when they left.

He was a strong Democrat, a Methodist, and devoutly religious. He died probably of heart disease associated with rheumatoid arthritis. He was married to Martha Ann MAIRS (daughter of Dr. Williams MAIRS and Martha AULTZ) on 26 Mar 1874. Martha Ann MAIRS was born on 21 Feb 1853 in Sissonville, West Virginia.

Her death came suddenly on the morning of December 22, 1923 at the age of seventy. The exact cause was not determined although she had a sudden hemorrhage from her mouth and nose.”

FIFTH GENERATION - Claude Egbert Milam (5 May 1886 - 16 Oct 1961)

Claude Egbert Milam was born on 5 May 1886 in Kanawha County, West Virginia. He was a successful Farmer and was also a Deputy Sheriff for Kanawha County, West Virginia in the early 1920's. He acquired the name "Dod" by which he was known all over the county because as a child he tried to say "Claude" but what came out was "Dod". He was therefore "Dod" all his life. He had nicknames for some of his children as well. He always called his oldest son, Freer, "Jack", and called his daughter, Martha, "Pat."  His youngest son, Claude Jr., was nicknamed "Dix" and always called Dix by the whole family. 

While Deputy Sheriff, Claude Egbert Milam co-signed a loan for his friend, the Sheriff, a neighboring dairy farmer. Very unfortunately when the economy slowed the Sheriff was unable to repay the loan. In 1928 Claude's farm and all of his family's possessions were taken as repayment for the loan.

He became an operator engineer in the Power House of Weirton Steel Company, Weirton, West Virginia from 1927 -1957. A story told by his grandson, John Thomas Singleton Jr., was that Claude bought a small pocket size book on electricity and taught himself to be an electrician.  Claude retired from Weirton Steel Co. four years prior to his death. He was a member of their 25 Year Club.

He died on 16 Oct 1961 in Weirton, West Virginia. He was buried on 19 Oct 1961 in Fort Steuben Cemetery, Wintersville, Ohio.

According to his youngest son, Dix: 

Claude E. Milam Sr as a young man and Claude E. Milam Sr as an adult were two different people. My father (from the memories of his brothers) was an entirely different person after his bankruptcy. As a young man and young married man, he was very talkative and outward going. But the bankruptcy killed his soul so that none of us who came later knew the old "Dod Milam."

"I wish that I could have known my Father before his bankruptcy. There were a lot of times when he and I would be home alone and we would drink his coffee and talk by the hour. He was always very slow and soft spoken. I do not know if this was an acquired trait or if he always talked that way. Beside farming, Dad also had a thriving Nursery along with Uncle Cart and he also owned a Livery Stable in Charleston."

After Clause's bankruptcy, the family left West Virginia with only a few possessions and moved to Newcomerstown, Ohio, where Girtha's sister, Georgia, was residing. Sometime later they moved to Steubenville, Ohio, and lived on Highland Ave. It was then that he became an operator engineer at the Power House of Weirton Steel Company, Weirton, West Virginia. He was employed there from 1927 -1957. A story told by his grandson John Thomas Singleton Jr. was that Claude bought a small pocket size book on electricity and taught himself to be an electrician.  Claude retired from Weirton Steel Co. four years prior to his death. He was a member of their 25 Year Club.

Claude never owned his own home after he lost the farm - or an automobile. The family later moved across the Ohio River to 33 Center Street, Weirton, West Virginia. Claude was a member of the Humphrey Memorial Methodist Church in Sissonville, West Virginia and served as the superintendent of the Sunday School for 18 years. While residing in Weirton, he attended the First Methodist Church. 

According to his oldest son, Freer, Claude lived by his personal creed: “live each day so as to not hurt anyone." Freer said he also tried to live by that creed. On Sunday evenings in the summer his son, Freer, and granddaughter Carol would visit Girtha and Claude.  They would gather in the kitchen where the desserts and snacks would appear. One of Claude's favorite desserts was cantaloupe with vanilla ice cream. And he always salted his cantaloupe and watermelon.

Four weeks prior to his death, Claude was hospitalized at Weirton Medical Center and diagnosed with leukemia.  Chemotherapy was very new and limited in 1961 and he did receive some, but it was not effective in the progression of his disease.

Claude was married to Girtha Jane FISHER, the daughter of Rev. Perry Davis FISHER, a Methodist Episcopal minister, and Anneliza CASTO on 5 Aug 1911 in Charleston, West Virginia. Girtha Jane FISHER was born on 27 Apr 1889 in Jackson County, West Virginia. Girtha's mother died when she was still quite young and her father remarried Cora Staats. Her stepmother was not a warm mother to her. Her sister, Georgia, was a beautiful child and young woman but Girtha was quite plain. According to her son, Dix, Girtha had a severe inferiority complex which began early in her life.

Girtha was an excellent seamstress who made beautiful clothes for many of her grandchildren. Girtha also crocheted and made lace dollies. She had a tin box in which she kept the extra buttons from the many items she made. This button box entertained her grandchildren for many hours.

Whenever her family came for a visit, she cooked enormous meals with the assistance of her daughter and daughters-in-laws often “using every pot and pan in the house”. Her grandchildren have fond memories of holidays in their home. Girtha also used to sing hymns, especially Amazing Grace and How Great Thou Art, while cleaning or cooking. You could tell she was the daughter of a Methodist Episcopal minister.

She was a charter member of the Ladies Aid Society of Humphreys Memorial Church in Sissonville, WV, which was formed in 1921. Other charter members were her sisters-in-laws, Bessie Milam and Rosa Pearl Glass.

During World War II, Girtha and her daughter, Martha, moved to Akron, Ohio, where they both worked in a manufacturing plant. They were examples of the women who are now known as "Rosie the Riveter" in that they helped with the war effort. Girtha was the matriarch of her family. She complained of many illnesses during her lifetime and these limited her activities in later years.

Claude Egbert MILAM Sr. and Girtha Jane FISHER had the following children:

1. William Freer MILAM born June 19, 1912.  He died August 14, 1993.

2. Loren MILAM was born in 1913 in Sissonville, West Virginia but died in 1918.

3. James Lakin MILAM was born May 10, 1920 and died in 1979.

4. Claude Egbert "Dix" MILAM Jr. was born on June 24, 1923 and died Jan.28, 1997.

5. Martha Jane MILAM was born Oct 19, 1924 and died Feb 16, 2009.

 

SIXTH GENERATION - William Freer Milam (19 Jun 1912 - 14 Aug 1993)

William Freer Milam was born on 19 Jun 1912 in Kanawha County, West Virginia. He grew up on his father's 200 acre farm near Sissonville and attended Sissonville High School until his family moved north to Ohio. Freer began working at the Weirton Steel Company, where his father worked in the Power House, in 1929 at age 16 by lying about his age. His first job was sweeping the floor with a broom but he worked his way up to  Operator of a five story tin rolling mill with a crew of four. He married Christina Leota MILLER (daughter of Delbert Wayne MILLER and Ici Erdine CUNNINGHAM) on 8 Nov 1940 in Russell, Kentucky.

A few months after the Pearl Harbor attack on 7 DEC 1941, Freer was drafted and served in the U. S. Army Air Corp from 1942 to the very end of World War II in the Summer of 1945 at what is now Ent Air Force Base, Colorado Springs, Colorado. William Milam attained the rank of Sergeant in the Motor Pool. In early 1944 Freer became the personal chauffer for Major General Uzal Girard Ent who was promoted to Commanding General of the 2nd Air Force.

Freer often flew with the General so he could chauffer him, sometimes even in the cockpit and even the co-pilot's seat where he learned the basics of navigation from radio beacon to radio beacon. Freer told a story of driving back from San Antonio, Texas, and reaching the base before General Ent who flew back. In October 1944, General Ent was seriously injured in the crash of a B-25 Mitchell bomber on takeoff at the Fort Worth Army Airfield, Texas. Paralyzed from the waist down he learned to walk again using braces. After the General's serious injury Sergeant Milam was assigned to assist the General and his wife and family in any way possible.

Freer retired in 1972 from Weirton Steel Company in Weirton, West Virginia. Freer and Christine had always had a large garden which they thoroughly enjoyed from spring to fall.  After his retirement with their children out of graduate schools, they really enjoyed their later years spending a month in Florida in the winters for a number of years. Freer also enjoyed played golf and once made a hole-in-one of which he was very proud.  His son, Robert, and his grandson, Robbie, enjoyed playing golf with him.

Freer was described as 5' 11" tall, with a rather muscular build. Freer had brown eyes and thinning hair. He died on 14 Aug 1993 and was buried at Fort Steuben Cemetery, Wintersville, Ohio.

Christina Leota MILLER was born on 1 Sep 1915 on a 200 acre farm near Sissonville, West Virginia. She graduated in 1934 from Sissonville High School, one of the few women of that era to obtain a high school diploma. Christine highly valued education and not infrequently told her children how she had ridden horseback in the spring and fall to go to high school. She was a life-long reader of histories and biographies. She was mostly a homemaker but also a passionate gardener and "canned" a variety of vegetables and jellies each fall.

Christine's children and grandchildren enjoyed her blackberry or crab apple jelly on her freshly made bicuits in the mornings and her holiday dinners with her wonderful dinner rolls and delicious fruit pies. They all copied her rolls and pie crust recipes!

Christine worked as a sales clerk at J. C. Penny’s one holiday season and later was a nurse's aide in surgery between 1961 and 1972 at the Ohio Valley Hospital in Steubenville, Ohio, to help her children obtain college degrees. Indeed they each obtained graduate degrees in large part because of Christine's high regard for education and her example. Freer and Christine were members of the Wintersville Methodist Church  from 1949 in Wintersville, Ohio.

William Freer MILAM and Christina Leota MILLER had the following children:

1. William Freer MILAM Jr. born November 2, 1941.
