Edward Milliken was born in Scarboro, Maine, in March, 1733, and died at the home of his son Nathaniel in Buxton, Maine, about 1812. He was one of the grantees of Trenton, Maine, in 1763, with his father, Justice Milliken, but remained at the homestead in Scarboro until 1805, then went to Buxton.

It is assumed that he was indeed born and died in Maine, but documentation is lacking . . . various records do show differing dates of birth including . . . 03 March 1733 . . . 05 March 1733 . . . 05 March 1734 . . . the majority of those records show the 5th of March 1733, so that is what is being used at the top of this page.
