Father: Stephen Mills  
Mother: Mary Anne Raley NANCY
from: Larry Cummings: What was told to me by my grandfather was that Thomas was Choctaw Indian and was born when the family was being relocated to Oklahoma. His mother died at child birth. His father couldnt take care of a baby while taking the other children to Oklahoma so he left Thomas with a white family in the vicinity of Bowling Green, KY. He was suppose to come back after getting the other children to Oklahoma but never did. My grandfather said this is what was told to him by his father Thomas. My uncle also told me the same story was told to him by his grandfather (Thomas).

Thomas Mills death certificate lists his father as Stephen Mills. This was given by Alva Mills, Dovies half brother who was born in 1884 to Toms second wife It has been reported to me by someone that their was a note on the back of the certificate giving his name as Benjamin Thomas Mills and possibly listing his parents as Stephen and Anne Nancy Raley or at least they had made the connection. I had always been told that Toms father was Benjamin. I wonder if his father is really Stephen and could it be coupled with Benjamin? Dovies certificate just say that father Thomas Mills and was given by Uncle Twain. According to family tradition, Tom Mills was an orphan found at a grist mill at Bowling Green, Kentucky by the mill owner whose first name was Tom. It is believed that Tom Mills was abandoned by Indians that went through that night. He was named Mills because he was found at a mill.

Bernard Mills

b.1831 MAY 23 ABT Calvary, Washington County, Kentucky
d.
Father: Stephen Mills  
Mother: Mary Anne Raley NANCY
Bernard Mills is believed to have died around 1869 after the birth of his son William Thomas Mills, because in the 1870 census of Monroe County, Missouri, we find Mary Luisa and her two sons living back with her father and his other children and Bernard is not included. It would also appear that Mary's mother is dead since she is not included in the census.

Father: Aubrey Robert Mills  
Mother: Laura Zelda Cowles
I am Nathaniel Crain Mills, born in 1948 in Edmonson Co. Ky. I grew up in the Otter Gap/ Chalybeate Community. I married Teresa Martine (Logsdon) Mills Aug. 1968. She was born on Feb. 19, 1950 to Daniel (Tuck) Logsdon and Teresa (Jarboe) Logsdon of Sunfish Ky. We have two sons Matthew David Mills, born Aug. 26, 1978, in Hershey, Pennsylvania and Jonathan Crain Mills, born Oct. 29, 1980 in Cleveland Heights Ohio. Matthew married Brianna (Soto) Mills and they have two children Isabella Brianna Mills, born Jan. 6, 2003 and Philip Edward Mills, born Aug. 30, 2006. My parents were Aubrey Robert Mills, born May 7, 1906 and Laura Zelda (Cowles) Mills, born Sept. 19, 1909 (I think). They had four children, Henry (Hank) Thomas Mills b.Feb. 2, 1933 (I think), Patricia Ella Mills (b. June 19, 1943), Jessie Faye Mills (b. March 23, 1947) and Nathaniel Crain Mills (b June 3, 1948. I was the youngest. Henry Thomas married Alma Fay (Stone) Mills and has three sons, Henry Thomas (Tommy) Mills, Robert Mills, and Eric Mills. Patricia married Harold Watt, son of Willis Watt of Boiling Springs. They have two daughters Marla Elaine (Watt) Price (married to Tom Price) of Jeffersonville Indiana. Karen has recently married and lives in California. Aubrey Robert Mills, my Dad, was born to Thomas Van Mills, I am not sure if the Van is Vanmeter but he went by Tom or mostly TV Mills, and to Ella (Davis) Mills. They had six children, Peachie, Aubrey, Elizabeth, Edgar, William (Bill), and Johnny Mills. As I recallm Peachie taught school among other things, Dad was a farmer, Elizabeth married Jesse Steenbergen and they ran the general store at Oakland, Ky. Edgar was the Vocational Agriculture for many years at Bristow High School and was in the army during WWII. Bill was a mechanic at Phelp's garage on the Richardsville road coming in to 8th street in Bowling Green and was a truck mechanic with Patton in his move across Europe. He told me they rebuilt the truck carbouraters (sp?) every night to have them ready to run the next day. Everything was done in the dark. They took them off, pulled them apart and cleaned them to get the dirt out by spreading everything on a grease rag on the ground. He said the general rule was if you light a match you die. Johnny the youngest was in the 101st Airborne at the battle of the bulge and was a machine gunner. He said his orders were not to back up but it didn't matter anyway - there was no place to go. TV Mills' is father was George Mills and Sarah Wingfield I think. And the Van may be from Sarah's Father. My grandmother (87) and grandfather Mills (85) (age at death - my recollection) are both buried in Smithgrove cemetery. At Smith Grove KY. He died in 1965 and she died Jan. 1, 1960. From what I have heard, just after they married, they sharecropped for 23 years on the Johnny Cole Place that was just north of the Davenport farm on 31W north of Bowling Green. In his early fifties when he was worried that the land owners would not lease to him any more he bought his farm on the knob owned by Duncan's now. TV Mills, farmed all his life and my dad and he frequently worked together. My Dad owned a farm about a mile from his (now Aubrey Mills Road) and Patricia and Harold Watt now live on the road. At age 79 he decided to retire since he had some heart pains one day when he was out running down a young cow to get her in the barn for the evening. He decided he would go and talk to social security since he had regularly paid SS every year for many years. Since they did not have any birth records of his birth, they finally found a man in Brownsville who was 93 that remembered when he was born. He also walked everywhere he went unless my dad drove him since he did not own a car. He regularly walked to the WA Cowles grocery on 31W about 3 times a week to get bacon flower and white loaf bread. He always drank a coke at the store and picked up a block of Bull Durham chewing tobacco. I guess he used a small block about every two or three days. He milked his own cows and had chickens for eggs and meat. I was 12 when my grandmother died and I stayed every night for the next 18 months with him since he was having occasional chest pains. He loved to listen to WCKY out of Cincinnati on the radio each evening since they told jokes and played bluegrass music. It was out of range during the day not that he would have ever been in the house listening during the day anyway. He listened to WKCT Bowling Green for local news and weather and the Baptist hour at 4:00 PM each day.

According to family tradition, Stephen and Ann Mills left their children with friends while they travelled west to find a new homestead and were never heard from again.

Another story says Stephen departed Marion County, Kentucky and left his wife and children behind. Anne, not being able to care for all of the children, divided them among friends and family members to raise. Thomas Mills went to stay with Israel Cannon, who then moved to Warren County, Kentucky.

Yet another story suggests that Stephen Mills went to Oklahoma and wrote a letter back and said he had arrived safely and that he would come back for Thomas, but they never heard from him again.

Anna and Stephen Mills were members of the Holy Name of Mary Church Parish in Calvary, Marion County, Kentucky from at least 1831-1834.
According to Jane Thomas, Secretary of Marion County, Kentucky Historical Society, Stephen and Anna had two more children:
Amanda born about 1834 who lived with Catherine Abell in 1850 Marion County, Kentucky census, and
Nancy who was born about 1836 and living with Ignatius and Catherine Mills.
Also there is the possibility of a son named Joseph born about 1835. He was living with Cornelius Raley in 1850 Marion County, Kentucky census.
