Although this website is about Captain Jacob Milligan and his family, there were other Milligan's in Charleston in the 1700's, including Jacob Milligan's brother, John Phenix (or Pheonix) Milligan.  We do not know all the family connections at this time, hopefully we will uncover more in time.

Other Milligan's include James Milligan, William Milligan, John Milligan, Thomas Milliken and others. Moses Milligan is shown in DNA tests to be a member of the same family as Dr. John (and Jacob) Milligan.

Captain James Milligan, Jailkeeper  & Tavern owner died in 1796 and it was listed in the Charleston Newspaper.  He was a cousin of Joseph Milligan of Charleston and they were both of County Down, Ireland - Captain James owned a Tavern which became a birthplace of the Scottish Rite Temple.  James Milligan was also a partner in the Intelligence Office with Jacob Milligan, which leads me to believe he was kin, if not a brother, to Jacob Milligan. James Milligan died 1796.
