Hello, I did quite a bit of searches this afternoon for Mr. Milligan. Here's info on the John A. Milligan that kept popping up.. seems to me it must be him. There is a John A. Milligan in CANADIAN, but, it's 1910 Census, then in 1920 in MCIntosh Co., Eufaula, Ok. - Hope there's some clue here that you can determine if it's your guy or not. ------------------------------------------------------.
------ 1920 OKLAHOMA, McIntosh County, Eufaula -----------
BELT, William Less(?) Age 43 - a retail merchant -
Belt, Nevada M. Age 39, wife
Belt children, John Ida (F); Sarah Inez; Margret E; and William Jr.,son;
AND MILIGAN, John A. - Age 49, Brother-in-law; Wd (widow)
---- He was born in Tennessee ---- his occupation: Salesman
I searched in Canadian Township, Pittsburg Co. and found the same family in 1910:
BELT, William L. age 33;born in Arkansas-retail merchant
. Belt, Nevada M. age 30; born in Oklahoma(Indian terr)
. Belt children, John I. (dau), Inez S., Margaret E......
AND MILLIGAN,John A.;age 39, Bro-in-law; Single; Salesman in retail store. He was born in Tennessee aabout 1871.
Notes: The Belt family remained in McIntosh Co., Eufaula, Ok.. They're on the 1930 census there but I did not locate John A. Milligan anywhere. They're on tax list, mentioned in some obituaries, and are buried in the Greenwood Cemetery there. The Kelly Funeral Home Records list William L and Nevada M Belt. One obit states that the Belts were old residents of Eufaula - that's in reference to William's parents. Another obit mentioned brothers & sisters/ J.C. of Eufaula; A.J. & G.A of Ft.Smith, and J. H. of CANADIAN. I've found a most of this in rootsweb.
IF your John A. Milligan was in Canadian, I think this is the man. He may have just split up with Maggie instead of dying ! ???? He's listed as widower on the 1920 census. My great-grandfather was listed the same way, but he wasn't a widow except by his wife leaving him & going to live with some of her children. She left him.
... I do hope this will help you. You might be able to get a death certificate for this man, but, don't know what it would tell you. The Oklahoma Historical Society does searches for old death records & sends copy for a very reasonable amount. Please let me know if you can come to any conclusions about this.. Keep in touch.
