Birth: Aug. 6, 1855
Death: Jan. 10, 1936

George Simpson Milnor was the son of Leroy S Milnor and Ellen VanArsdalen Milnor Ackley. He was born Aug 6 1855 in Fairfield County, Ohio. As a young boy his family moved Gorham Township, Fulton County, Ohio. Around the end of the Civil War, his father died or perhaps just disappeared. His mother remarried and he and his brothers were farmed out to neighbors. It was not a pleasant childhood. He suffered a permanant back injury as a result of deliberate act of some other youngsters. It can said that he was a survivor.

He married Matrona Jane Henry Nov 24, 1887 in Fayette, Ohio. They lived for a time in Gorham Township and then moved to near Adrian, Michigan. In 1908 he travelled to Colorado and located property in Arapahoe County. The family moved there in 1909. George was a farmer and grew alfalfa. He farmed a SW 1/4 of the section bounded by E Himilaya St on the east and roughly E Belleview Pl on the south. It is presently divided by E Chenago Dr and bounded by E Himilaya St on the east. He also owned the W1/2 of the quarter section immediately NW and a N1/2 of the section bounded by E Belleview Place on the north and E Himilaya St on the west.

George and Trona had four children: Floyd, Ruth and Ruby who were born in Ohio and their fourth child, Alma Marie who was born after they moved to Colorado. George died Jan 10, 1936 in the bedroom of his farmhouse in rural Arapahoe County. He is buried in Fairmount Cemetery.
