Gathering in front of Old Courthouse

Submitted by Martha Noah of Arlington, Texas

The fourth man seated in the front row from the left is Tom Milam, Martha Noah's father. He was born in Ponotoc, Mississippi. The family came to Texas around 1900 on a train with two other families. They stopped in Edgewood, pitched a tent and stayed with the Brandon family until their home was built. This was believed to be located on the Kaufman Road about 3 miles north of Canton. It is uncertain whether this was indeed in front of the old courthouse in Canton but it appears to be. John Thomas Milam married Mary Ettie Rush on August 25, 1913 in a buggy somewhere at Lone Pine. He died in Dallas December 2, 1939.
