Morton Mills was born May 20, 1823 in Indiana and diedNovember 21, 1851 in Jackson County, Indiana.He married Parthena Eastin/Easton on March 22, 1842 in Jackson County.In 1848 he purchase several acres of land in Lawrence County, Indiana.Morton is buried in Liberty Cemetery, Jackson County.
Morton and Parthena had 4 known children:James Patterson, John J., Mary E and an infant that died at a young age.
Also, in Jackson County, Indiana, within a 4 year period, there were 2 other marriages ofindividuals with the last name of Mills. Possibly someone might have these names in their records and, being in the same county during the same period of time, they could be related to Morton. (Grabbing at straws!)An Elizabeth Mills married a James Eastin/Easton in 1847 and a Mary Ann Mills married a Richard Newkirk in 1846.I feel the chances are good that Elizabeth may have been Morton's sister; both marrying individuals with the same last name.
