Biographical/Historical note

George Cross Milner was born in Alabama in 1852, and attended The University of Alabama from 1871-1873. His parents, Isaac and Joana Milner, were natives of England. George Cross Milner married Fannie Cooper in 1873. Their children were Isaac Cooper Milner, Joana R. Milner, and William F. Milner. George Cross Milner died in Mexico in 1883 while working with a mining company. Fannie died in November 1881, probably during childbirth, as that was the same month William F. was born. Isaac Cooper Milner died in Nashville, in 1894. Joana R. Milner lived in Nashville and apparently never married.

William F. Milner married Emma Rivers in Kentucky, where they lived for a time before settling in Indianapolis, Indiana. Their two children were William F. Milner, Jr., and Maclin Milner.
