I have some of the history;however, at this time I have misplaced it and will have to look for it. There are lots of "kissing cousins" in this area of Greenbrier County.

I have some information on this John, but not much. It seems he and Martha were founders, along with nine other McMillions, of the McMillion Methodist Episcopal Church in 1850, near Williamsburg, WV. It appears they had only one child, Nancy. I don't know if I'm muddying the waters or not. Let me know.

I have my Grandfather's family history dating back to this same John McMillion and Martha Palmer McMillion you mentioned. However, as you move DOWN the list from earlier to later, I only have the siblings from my immediate line.

I hope to compile all of these names in GEDCOM format one day, to easily share with others. I'll post some names from my immediate McMillion family line here for you. If I may be of any further help with something specific, please let me know.

Warm Regards,

I wish I could help. The earliest McMillion ancestor I have listed in my personal family records is John McMillion born 1735 in Faquier County, VA, married Martha Palmer. I don't have any reliable information before that. I hope someone else can help us.

Here is a bit of information that is not corrobrated by a second source, so take it with a grain of salt. This is copied from an e-mail I received from a Larry McMillen of Iowa. Larry's e-mail address is/was:


John McMillion b-march 9, 1703/04 -m- Anne Frances Harrison b-abt 1711 "she is
the daughter of Thomas and Anne Sithia (Short) Harrison". John Anne had 6

1 Elizabeth Harrison McMillion b- 1730 -m- Doc Jno Briscoe
2 John McMillion b- Jan 1, 1735/36 -m- Martha Palmer
3 Ruth Harrison McMillion b- 1745 -m- Gerrard W. Briscoe
4 Cathbert Mcmillion b- 1746
5 Ann Frances McMillion b- abt 1748
6 Samuel L. McMillion b- unknown


Maybe if someone else can attest to the source and reliability of this information, or can fill in even more details, that would be most helpful. Todd, if you find out that this information is correct, and/or information going back further, PLEASE by all means let me know.

Take care,
