Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1845
Death: Jan. 9, 1891

Milton Earp was a Civil War veteran. He was born in Indiana. He was the son of William and Cassandra (Arrowsmith) Earp who were also from Indiana.
He married Lucy Spicer on January 11, 1864 in Shelby County, Illinois. They had three children together, Alice J, Cora, and Fredonia.
According to his wife Lucys obituary they had six children, three sons and three daughters. I find no record of the sons so assuming they died in infancy?
