I am trying to find out if the James Milliken who married Nancy Becraft, Oct 21, 1866 in Davis Co., IA was the same as James Patten Milliken b. 1844 in IN, who married Mary Smith about 1870 in Scotland Co., MO.
Nancy died in January 1868, barely a year after they married. In the 1870 census Jas. P. and his new bride, Mary (age 16) were living next to his father, Elias Milliken in Scotland Co., MO
