Hello,I did quite a bit of searches this afternoon for Mr. Milligan.Here's info on the John A. Milligan that kept popping up.. seems to me it must be him. There is a John A. Milligan in CANADIAN, but, it's 1910 Census, then in 1920 in MCIntosh Co., Eufaula, Ok. - Hope there's some clue here that you can determine if it's your guy or not. ------------------------------------------------------. ------ 1920 OKLAHOMA, McIntosh County,Eufaula ----------- Family: BELT,William Less(?) Age 43- a retail merchant - Belt,Nevada M.Age 39, wife Belt children, John Ida (F); Sarah Inez; Margret E; and William Jr.,son; AND MILIGAN, John A. - Age49,Brother-in-law;Wd (widow) ---- He was born in Tennessee ---- his occupation: Salesman ___________________________________________________________
I searched in Canadian Township, Pittsburg Co. and found the same family in 1910: Family: BELT,William L. age 33;born in Arkansas-retail merchant .Belt,Nevada M.age 30; born in Oklahoma(Indian terr) .Belt children,John I. (dau), Inez S., Margaret E...... ANDMILLIGAN,John A.;age 39, Bro-in-law; Single; Salesman in retail store.He was born in Tennessee aabout 1871.
Notes: The Belt family remained in McIntosh Co., Eufaula, Ok..They're on the 1930 census there but I did not locate John A. Milligan anywhere.They're on tax list,mentioned in some obituaries, and are buried in the Greenwood Cemetery there.The Kelly Funeral Home Records list William L and Nevada M Belt.One obit states that the Belts were old residents of Eufaula - that's in reference to William's parents.Another obit mentioned brothers & sisters/ J.C. of Eufaula; A.J. & G.A of Ft.Smith, andJ. H.ofCANADIAN.I've found a most of this in rootsweb. ----- IFyourJohn A. Milligan was in Canadian,I think this is the man.He may have just split up with Maggie instead of dying ! ????He's listed as widower on the 1920 census.My great-grandfather was listed the same way, but he wasn't a widow except by his wife leaving him & going to live with some of her children.She left him. ... I do hope this will help you.You might be able to get a death certificate for this man, but, don't know what it would tell you.The Oklahoma Historical Society does searches for old death records & sends copy for a very reasonable amount.Please let me know if you can come to any conclusions about this..Keep in touch.
