My grandfather's grandfather was James Harvey Miltimore.He was a son of Aaron Fitts Miltimore andand Plooy Bridge.Aaron was the son of James Miltimore and Abigale (Nabby) Fitts.If your ancestor was a son of James and Nabby, then he must have been a brother of Aaron.I know alot about the brother Ira Miltimore, but I know nothing of LB.I also know very little about James and Nabby, though I do have some information about Nabby's family (who were from England).
I would appreciate the opportunity to share information with you.Where did LB live?Does your family still live there?
I have no pictures of Aaron, but I do have a picture of Ira.Do you have any pictures of LB?It would be interesting to compare them.
Aaron settled in Lake County, IL in the 1830s along a lake now known as Miltimore Lake (sometimes misspelled Miltmore Lake).Ira settled in Chicago at about the same time and became on of its leading early citizens.Many of his letters and mementos are stored in the Chicago Historical Museum.
Aaron was the assessor of Avon Township in Lake County.In 1851 he contracted to sell his homestead along the lake but then hung himself in his barn later that day.Te newspaper clipping notes the suicide and says that no one could figure out why he would have done such a thing.He was considered moderately wealthy.
Aaron's mother, Nabby (Abigale) lived with him for a while, and was listed in the 1840 census for Lake County.I don't know what ever happened to her.
