Milton moved to Iowa with his parents sometime between 1836 and 1840. He traveled overland to California in 1849 to take part in the Gold Rush. He returned via sea, "around the Horn", in 1850.
Milton married Florinda Day in 1853. They had one child, Charles. After Florinda's early death, he married Sarah Ann Marling in 1856. They had seven children: David, George, Frances ("Fanny"), Mary, John, Letha, and Arthur.
He served in Company "G", 22nd Iowa Volunteer Infantry from August 1862 to April 1864, rising to the rank of 2nd Sergeant. He participated in the Vicksburg Campaign of 1863 and in service on the Gulf Coast in 1863-64. Because of illness, he transferred to the 3rd Regiment, Veterans Reserve Corps, in April 1864. He was discharged for disability in Alexandria, Virginia on 28 October 1864.
After his discharge from the Army, he resumed farming near Riverside, Washington County, Iowa. Eventually, the lingering effects of his wartime service made it too difficult for him to perform much labor. In later years he was active in veterans' affairs, including reunions organized by the 22nd Iowa Veterans Association.
He lived in Riverside until shortly before his death, when he moved to his son John's home in Muscatine. He is buried near his wife, and children David, Letha and Mary.
