Neighboring Counties: In the 1850 Census, a few Milton households were living in neighboring counties. In Botetourt County was the household of Pleasant H. Milton (b. ca. 1822). Among those living in the same household was Mary Milton (b. ca. 1790) who may have been his mother, and Hazy (b. ca. 1830) and Catherine (b. ca. 1832) who were presumably his sisters. The household of Jubal Milton (b. ca. 1821) lived in Roanoke County as early as the 1840 census. Another household in Roanoke Co. in 1840 was that of Margaret Milton, perhaps the mother of Jubal. The final nearby Milton listing in 1850 was that of William Milton (b. ca. 1828) who was living alone in Franklin County. . Back to Milton Genealogy Page
