Colonel Leftridge Milam wrote his Will on 22 FEB 1908 and probate was approved by the Kanawha County court on 22 APR 1908. In it Leftridge bequeathed property to his four sons and two daughters. Each son received about 200 acres of land near Sissonville. However, the eldest son, Benjamin B., received the family home and adjacent property on Haynes Branch of the Poca River. His eldest daughter, Minie Milam, received half of Leftridge's lot in Charleston and daughter, Pearl Milam, received the other half. In addition Minie Milam received a tract of land on the right hand side of the Poca River known as the Bill Burditt tract.
His personal property was to be sold and divided equally among his children. In addition, Leftridge provided that his Widdow, Martha A. "shall have her maintenance in equal parts from the above divided lands so long as she is my Widdow." And: "....be it further known that all of the above Stipulations relating to my personal property shall be subject to my Widdow's dowery."
