WHERE MILAMS LIVED


This page will provide geographical and historical context and background to places where Milams were most prominent.



BEDFORD COUNTY, VIRGINIA




HALIFAX COUNTY, VIRGINIA




LAURENS DISTRICT, SOUTH CAROLINA

John Milam (Sr.), the Patriarch, is believed to have settled in South Carolina just after the Revolutionary War sometime about 1785 or 1786. His sons Samuel, Benjamin, John and Thomas, followed him shortly thereafter. Bartlett followed in about 1796. While John Sr. settled and died in York County in 1789, and Samuel had settled in Abbeville County, Benjamin, John, Thomas and Bartlett all settled in Laurens County and were all instrumental in its very early development. By 1820, Benjamin, John and Thomas took their families westward to Georgia and Alabama. However Bartlett stayed and left a very large family in Laurens for many generations. Though many grandchildren and great-grandchildren would also migrate westward later, many Milams continue to live in Laurens County today. A number of Laurens County landmarks bear the Milam name such as Milam Road, Milam Heights Road and the Riley Milam Cemetery.




BARTOW COUNTY, GEORGIA
