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
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.
