Nice site for the society. As others before me have done, I am researching Charles Milliken and his wife Ann Harbison. They were married about 1746 (probably in Virginia). Charles purchased land in Augusta County and was active in his community from the late 1740s through the mid-1750s.
Augusta County was considerably larger at that time and the land may now be located in another county, but that discovery will come with time and research.
