Information I have (not verified and put together 50-plus years ago) shows Richard Milton was born about 1768 in Virginia; died 1843 in Shelby County, Ky. Married Sarah Williams of Virginia in 1797. They are buried at his home near Mount Eden, which is in Spencer County near Shelby County line. They had 12 children. Richard Milton son of Moses Milton (c. 1740 to c. 1816) and Mary Morris (no dates). Moses son of Richard Milton (died c. 1800) and Mary Ross (c. 1716-1811). Richard's parents named Richard and Eliza (no maiden name for her). Parish records have them living in Richmond County, Va., in 1720. Richard born prior to that. Parish records show three daughters born between 1720-1728. Richmond County became Prince William County. First Richard possibly son of a Michael Milton, no other information.
