4. Thomas Milligan, fourth son of " Sergeant John " came to Canada 54
years (1802) ago and d. in Hamilton, Ontario, in his 74th year. He was
educated as a gentleman and found it difficult to submit to any regular
occupation in America. His vocation was bookkeeping and, latterly, market
gardening. His wife's name was Eliza. He received regular remittances
of money from Ireland for many years until his father's death fifty years
ago, when all correspondence was discontinued. He expected some legacies
and his family sent for a copy of the will, but did not procure one. They
would not trust a lawyer and all remains unsettled. These had issue ten

Richard Milligan lived near the village of Donaghy within three miles of
Stewartstown, and about five miles from Cookstown, in ( "(j. Tyrone, Ireland.
He was commonly called " Dick " and d. about 1843. His wife's name was
Kennedy and her son was named for her family. These had three .sons
named James, Edward, and Kennedy.

I. James Milligan, son of Richard, was twice m. and had several sons, and
one daughter named Mary. He was a farmer. He was an Orangeman,
and on the 12th of July 1826, the lodge of which he was a member had
been celebrating with a fife and drum band as was then the custom, and
were returning home to Stewartstown. Party animosity was verv strong,
and when passing (ileno chapel, near the shore of Loch Neagh, they were
attacked by some two thousand of Papists or " Ribbon men." .\mong the
Orangemen were two old Waterloo pensioners who assumed command and
spread the company out with considerable space between them, each taking
such cover as he could t'lnd. Both parties were armed with old flint-locks,
and the firing was continued for two hours, and several of the Roman
Catholics were shot. The ammunition of the Orangemen was running low,
or was almost gone, when the other party, having got enf)Ugh of it, with-
drew and permitted those they had attacked to go home. James Milligan
participated in this battle called "The C.leno Tight." 'The names of the
two old veterans who led the Orangemen, since recorded in .song, were
Williamson and T»arclay.

Edward Milligan, son of James, emigrated to America and lived in Phila-
delphia where he is said to have "lived free from guile." He was b. about
ninety years ago, (1902) and left Ireland at the age of forty. He had not
less than two sons and one daughter who are now living in Philadelj-thia.
one being a member of the Select Council at the present time. This W. J.
Milligan is m. but has no issue. He says, " I have sustained the name un-

$900 more, having won that amount from three gentleman, each of whom bet
$300 that she would not sell $50 worth of peanuts without eating, drinking
or sitting during the time of selling. Mrs. Mulliken fulfilled these condi-
tions, and more, selling 471^ bushels of nuts and not sitting, eating or
drinking for twelve hours. She has since received many congratulations,
together with orders for peanuts, from different parts of the United States.
Mrs. Mulliken has enclosed in a velvet bag some of the largest peanuts she
