The Bartlett Milam Family Bible
Click Here to view a printable typewritten transcription of the Bartlett Milam Family Bible.
The Bartlett Milam Family Bible is often referred to in old Milam research documents. Sadly, it was said to be lost in a tornado in Georgia about 1939. This typed transcription was created sometime about 1930 or so and is the only record we have of its existence and content. As you can see from the date of the bible, 1829, it clearly did not originally belong to Bartlett or Elizabeth Milam who died in 1822 and 1823 respectively. Since it passed to descendants of William and Mary (Paslay) Milam in Bartow County, Georgia, it clearly must have originally belonged to William Milam, or to Ferrell or Nancy Milam, son and daughter of Bartlett, who migrated to Bartow County, Georgia with their nephews, the sons of their brother William Milam. Unfortunately, it does not name all of the children of Bartlett Milam, but only a select few who died in the 1820s, and then Ferrell and Nancy who died in 1869 and 1888 respectively.

While John Milom's will is neatly filed and readable in the Will Book of York County, South Carolina, unfortunately access to the probate of his estate is a bit more complicated. The loose papers to the probate package appears to be mixed up in two different probate packages. Some papers were filed in Case #60, File #2741 under the name of John Milom with Thomas Milom as executor, while other papers were confused and mixed in the 1801 probate estate of John Millen, Case #60, File #2751.
