William Milligan, the only known son of Jacob Milligan, was born about 1774, we believe in Charleston SC.  Little is known of his life at this time, more research is needed. 

In Marriage notice in the SC Gazette newspaper, Wm. Milligan, ship carpenter, married Catherine McKenzie, both of Charleston, SC, April 13, 1806 by Rev. Charles Bowen.
