Gospel preacher who is listed in Ligon's Portraiture of Preachers in 1899 and Gospel Preachers Who Blazed the Trail by C. R. Nichol, 1909.

Thos. E. Milholland was born May 8, 1871, in Alexander County, North Carolina. He became a member of the Methodist church at the age of twelve. After the death of his father, who was a Presbyterian, he moved with his mother and three brothers to Wolf Bayou, Arkansas, December, 1890. At that time he had not so much as heard that there was a church of Christ. He obeyed the Gospel Nov. 14, 1893, and began preaching the Truth-not only In teaching sinners the way of life, but In establishing congregations as well. His educational advantages were cut short by the death of his father, but with his desire for knowledge and his Indomitable energy he continued his studies by pine-knot fires. Being timid by nature he has not engaged in many debates, but those he has engaged In have been satisfactory to the brethren, and have been with strong men In the sectarian ranks. His greatest desire Is to " preach the Word," which he does with all the power of his ardent nature with a degree of success that Is equaled by few men who are willing to be true to the Word of the Lord. March 19, 1892, he was married to Miss Ethel Kinsey, of Arkansas. They have four boys and one girl. Three of them are members of the church. He attributes much of his success to the help and encouragement of his Christian wife. --Gospel Preachers in Texas and Oklahoma, 1911, p. 119.
