Milam had lived in Eilasville all of his life. He was a faithful member of the Church of Christ.

Elmer was one of the finest baseball players in Young County history and started playing in the Men's League at the age of 14. He stood six feet tall and weighed 190 pounds, his older teammates called him "Kid". Milam may have been the best catcher ever to play baseball in Young County. In one game before World War I, Kid Milam threw out the same baserunner trying to steal second base 10 times. In those days, one could sent the same player in to run as often as you wanted. So 10 times, he tried unsuccessfully to steal.
E.B. and Ethel Milam grew up in the South Prairie community which was located between South Bend and Ivan on Hwy 67.
