|Death: ||Jan. 11, 1888|
Samuel was the son of Michael and Mary Millirons of Scioto County, Ohio. He married Elizabeth Toland during November 1829.
In 1830, Samuel was enumerated in Madison Township in Scioto County, Ohio. He was a between the ages of 20 and 30. The only other person in his household was a female between the ages of 15 and 20. [Note: The obituary of Samuel's son William gives William's 1835 birth place as Greene County, Kentucky and that 'in early childhood' his parents moved to Ohio and later to Putnam County, Missouri. The obituary of another son, John, gives his birth as occurring in 1838 in Ohio. The 1850 census gives Ohio as the birth state of all the children.]
In 1840, Samuel was again enumerated in Madison Township where his household consisted of one male under the age of five, two males between the ages of five and ten, one male between the ages of 40 and 50, one female under five, one female between ten and 15, and one female between the ages of 30 and 40.
By 1850, the family was living in Bloom Township in Scioto County. Samuel was a 52-year-old white male born in Kentucky whose occupation was laborer. Others in the household were Elizabeth (age 39), Elizabeth (age 18), William (age 15), John (age 12), Nancy J. (age eight), James (age six), Josephine (age four) and Mahala (age one), Jas. (age 31), Mary (age seven), Sarah (age five) and Hester (age three). The older Elizabeth was born in Kentucky while all of the others were born in Ohio.
During the following ten years, Samuel moved to Putnam County, Missouri where he was enumerated in Elm Township in 1860. At that time he was a 62-year-old white male farmer born in Kentucky who owned $150 of personal property. Elizabeth was a 44-year-old white female who was born in Ohio. Others in the household were Mary (age 20), James (age 16) who was a farm laborer, Josephine (age 13), Mahala (age ten), Sarah B. (age six) and Samuel F. (age four). Son John was enumerated as a farm laborer in Richland Township in the household of D. Halley.
Samuel enlisted for the Civil War at Lancaster (Schuyler County), Missouri. He gave his age at enlistment as 45 although he was actually either 64 or 65. On Samuel's Certificate of Disability for Discharge, the captain of the company wrote: "By reason of weak breast caused by colds contracted at different times since his enlistment, and also general disability brought on by exposure, etc. Said soldier when enlisted give in (sic) his age as 45 years; but I am satisfied from all appearances that he is at least 55 or 60 years of age. He is worn out, and diseased lungs together with a general prostration of health renders him entirely unfit for military service."
On the 1870 census, S. Millirons was still in Putnam County, although in Liberty Township. He was a Kentucky-born 69-year-old white male farmer who owned $500 of real property and $300 of personal property. Also in the household was E., a 58-year-old white female who was born in Pennsylvania; S. B., a 16-year-old white female born in Ohio and S. F., a 13-year-old white male born in Missouri.
In 1880, Samuel and Elizabeth were living in Richland Township. Samuel was 79 years old, a farmer, born in Kentucky to Virginia-born parents. Elisabeth was a 68-year-old Pennsylvania-born white female whose parents were both born in Pennsylvania. Their youngest son, Samuel Jr., was a 23-year-old white male who worked on the farm.
Samuel died on January 11, 1888 and was buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Sheridan County, Kansas. He may have been living with his son, William who lived near Morland, in Graham County, which is approximately ten miles from the cemetery.
