Charles Stark Milford was born on Tuesday, July 25, 1826 and passed away on Saturday, August 2, 1902.
He was the son of John Milford II and Rebecca (Milford) Milford, who were first cousins.
On Thursday, December 1, 1853, Charles married Miriam Addis from Oconee County, South Carolina. Miriam was born on Saturday, November 29, 1828 and passed away on Monday, April 6, 1903. She was the daughter of Samuel Addis and Eunice (Johns) Addis.
Charles and Miriam had six children. Samuel Marshall Milford, later of Kanas City; John Thomas Milford, deceased young; Clayton Jones Milford of Lavonia, Georgia; Eliza Jane Milford, married W.F. Wotton of Corner Township; Albert Calloway Milford of Anderson County; and Charles Arlington Milford of Abbeville, Abbeville County.
Charles purchased three hundred acres at one dollar an acre from Robert Steele, State Senator from the Pickens District, and with his new bride went to live on it.
Charles and Miriam had been members of the Baptist Church for fifty six years.
Charles volunteered in Company F (Orr's Rifles), of the Confederate Army and served under Colonel Ledbetter. He also took part in the battles of Gaines Mill, Cold Harbor, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, The Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Second Cold Harbor, Petersburg, Reams Station, Jones' Farm, Southerland Station and many minor engagements. He was wounded twice, losing a finger at Bloody Angle. Charles was with General Robert Edward Lee at Appomattox, Virginia, and surrendered on Sunday, April 9, 1865. He always took pride in saying that he was never captured.
Charles returned home on Tuesday, May 2, 1865 and when he saw his two sons hoeing corn in his field , he felt as did any another Confederate Soldier, that it was time for him to be getting back to taking care of his family.
