4. Milton MILLION, son of Haman MILLION and Judith HINSON , was born on 3 Oct 1819 in Harrison County, KY and died on 1 Aug 1884 in Lagrange, MO. (Lewis County), at age 64.

Milton was born in Madison County, Kentucky in 1819. In 1826 he came to Missouri with (an uncle?) his brother Jeptha and they settled in Lewis County, where Milton worked as a farm hand. Milton was made depty clerk on January 2, 1847 (minutes of the court of Lewis County). He married Ann Bradshaw of La Grange in 1848 and soon after won election to the office of circuit clerk. He then moved to Monticello, the county seat, where he remained for 30 or 35 years. His time was divided between the two offices of circuit clerk and county clerk, being first elected to one and then the other. Miilton was the county asssessor from 1848 to 1854. In 1861 he was elected county treasurer, but he was a northern man and when party feeling, incident to the discussion of the slavery question and the war, became very heated in Lewis County, the bushwackers drove him out. He went to Illinois, remaining until a short time prior to the close of the war. He returned to Missouri, settling in La Grange where he obtained two acres (Lewis County Land Assessment Book - 1862). In 1866 or 1867 he was chosen to represent Lewis County in the state legislature, and after the expiration of his term of office he returned to La Grange until his death in 1884. He was the president of Monticello emancipation meeting.
