Luther Alexander Milby b. 25 Nov 1888 d. 14 Feb 1932 and Nora Jane Akin Milby Henderson b. 27 Jun 1892 d. 14 Aug 1970.
Based on my research, Luther Alexander Milby was the son of William L. "Bill Spec" Milby b. 1840 Green Co., KY d. 7 Jan 1896 Green Co., KY and his 1st cousin Emily Jane Milby b. Mar 1847 Green Co., KY d. abt 1903 Green Co., KY.
William Milby was the son the son of James Henderson "Hen" Milby and his first wife, Sarah Jane Milby, who was his half-first cousin.William Milby (based on my research) married (1) Harriett A. Marr abt 1860 and had daughter Sarah A. Milby b. abt 1861 (2) 10 Nov 1864 Green Co., KY to Janetta Noe (who was previously married to James W. Morgan and had 3 children) and had 3 daughters by William Milby(3) and finally on 31 Oct 1882 Green Co., KY to Emily Jane Milby (previously married 1 Dec 1873 Green Co., KY to George W. Morgan, two children - he nephew of James W. Morgan and his father was John Harvey Morgan, brother to James W. Morgan 1st husband of Janetta Noe). Emily & William Milby had children besides Luther - Bettie Jane b. 24 Sep 1883 d. 26 Apr 1923 married William Edward Creason and Stella G. Milby b. Mar 1886.Other family data says she married to "Allen Milby" but have not yet researched them.
Emily Jane Milby daugher of Richard Milby and Louisa Benningfield.
All these Milbys descend from John Milby and Catherine Larrimore (or his first unknown wife), as well as the Morgans mentioned. Luther Alexander Milby descends from John Milby, Sr. & first unknown wife who had only one son, James Samuel Milby b. 8 Jan 1786 North Carolina.John Milby, Sr. married Catherine Larrimore abt 1793 in Rockingham Co., NC.They had at least 9 recorded children.
John Harvey & James W. Morgan were the sons of Jesse Morgan and Catherine Milby - and Catherine is daughter of John Milby and Catherine Larrimore.
The Milby family intermarriages go on and on!Additionally, after Luther Alexander Milby died, Nora Jane Akin Milby married abt 1944 to William Green Henderson b. 19 Sep 1889 Green Co., KY d. 28 Jul 1946 Louisville, Jefferson Co., KY.He was first married to Nora Lee Akin, the family discussed in the other reply to this message.
William Green Henderson is the son of Richard Franklin "Frank" Henderson and Rita Bell Brown - and Richard Frank is son of William Henderson and Eliza Ann Morgan, who is the daughter of Jesse Morgan and Catherine Milby, and sister to James W. and John Harvey Morgan mentioned above.
William Green Henderson was 3rd cousin to Luther Alexander Milby.
My relationship to Luther Alexander Milby is 3rd cousin once removed.I descend from Elizabeth Milby & Baylor Henderson.
Per Nora Jane Akin Milby Henderson's obit, her parents were John Lewis Akin and Mary Birch Cantrell.Parents of Nora Lee Akin Henderson, wife of William Green Henderson, were Archie Henry Akin and Donna Victoria Milby (yes, here we go again). Also, her sister, Mary Green Akin, married Fred Henderson, William Green Henderson's brother.
I know the Akin family married into Milby and Henderson families, but have not yet researched their specific links.
