Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Arkansas and all my nearest relatives either live there or are from there. I have always been interested in family history and before my wife and I had children, I did quite a lot of research. I published a family newsletter which I called The Milner Chronicle. I sent this to relations I had discovered to inform them of new findings and to get them together with other family researchers. However, I had to stop this because of my growing duties as husband and father. I am still interested in genealogy and do research when I can. I do have a lot of information still to share, especially past work I have done in Indiana genealogy. I have posted a few things I have found on unrelated lines there. I am a current member of the Sons of the American Revolution and Clan Forbes Society. I have also in the past been a member of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War.

My virtual cemeteries are dedicated to my grandparents and are collections of their ancestors. I did not know my grandfather Bill Milner because he died in an auto accident before I was born. His family came first to Judsonia White Co., AR and then to Hickory Plains, Prairie Co., AR. My grandmother Jeannette Puckett Milner's family was from Tippecanoe Co., IN before moving to Hickory Plains, AR. My grandfather Harry Hawkins was born in Preston, GA before coming to Arkansas as a civil engineer. It was in Mountain View, Stone Co., AR where he met my grandmother Inez Hixson, the only child of Ed Hixson who ran the local newspaper and print shop. The known female branches connected by marriage to my Milner lines are Hawkins, Puckett, Forbes, Swank, Crandel, Meranda/Miranda, and Rice. In my postings I have tried give as much family unit information as I can, and to cite all the sources used for information to help leave a path for future genealogists. I welcome all specific questions regarding related lines and will answer them as soon as possible. Please be patient. I hope this serves as a tribute to all my ancestors memories and helps anyone researching these lines.

George Swank marriage to Margaretha
Seems George Swank married Margaretha Meyer, according to the Loudoun county record of the birth of George, Jr. in 1791. Her parents are listed as George Meyer and Barbara. I am checking on the births of George Swank's siblings.

Charles Kuglar Harlin
Hi Mike,
I found your information on William M. Harlin, and was so thrilled! That is my family! In fact, Charles Kuglar Harlin who married Alice Virginia Wright are my great-grandparents! I would love to exchange any information on our families that I have and vise-versa. Do you have any photos of Charles & Alice? If not, I know I have one at an older age. Here is my email address to contact me: Will be waiting to hear from you.

RE: Everton Cemetery Corbin Photos
Hi Mike, Glad to be of help. Your Corbin ancestor must have been well off to afford a tomb stone like that. Mine will be the size of a book of matches. Did they come here from Europe? Keep ancestoring. If you have any questions about this region feel free to ask. We are not native but have lived in the region for forty yours or so.

RE: Worster- Mt Garrison
Glad you like the photos, if there are any more you want just let me know and I'll try my best.

Thanks for the answer about Grandma Caty. Yes, I am on Ancestry and the origin of the info about Caty after she came to Indiana, "richardson family" is mine. The relatives back east put out the story she had died in 1815 so James could marry again and have another family who then claimed his Rev War pension and DAR status. Caty's Larimore sons were prominent settlers of Fayette co and our family is here to this day. If I hadn't found in our court records, her divorce from James, marriage to Amos and will, she would have been lost to revisionist history! That is what makes this so much fun, don't you agree?

Nice meeting you!

Worster- Mt Garrison
Added some photos to your Worster memorials at Mt Garrison cemetery, Fayette co., IN. I took them in 2010 and thought I would pass along. Hope you approve.

Since you are a Milner, would you have any information about my GGGG-Grandmother Caty Morgan Larimore Milner. She married Amos Milner in 1830 in Fayette co and died in 1844 in Fayette co. I have their wedding cert. but can't find where she was buried. I live in Fayette co so it would be easy to look if I just knew where. It is kind of funny, she and her children left and divorced James Larimore (Revolutionary soldier)in North Carolina and came out to Indiana and married another Revolutionary soldier, Amos Milner. Would appreciate any info you might have.

Bracken County Historical Society has been to the cemetery and has documented it in a book. Thank you for moving them to the correct cemetery.
