  • Notes 
    • There is a disagreement on the birth year for Andrew. The 1850, 1860 and 1870 Federal Census Records give different ages for Andrew ranging from 1800 to 1803. The earliest record, 1850, gives his age as 47 which would make his birth year 1803. I am inclined to think that the earliest record may be the most accurate and so will use 1803 as his birth year.
      ==================
      Millsaps had ten sons to carry on the name. The first five were with his first wife whose name is unknown. They were Jacob born 1825, William Riley born 1827 Andrew born 1831 Ransom born 1833 and William Andrew born 1835. The next five were born to Andrew and his second wife Mary Melson. They wer married in 1842 and had Jason 1844, Jesse 1847, Hampton 1848, Ervine 1850 and Henry born 1856. In additiion to the boys there were six girls, Melvina, 1829, Mary A. 1837, Lousia 1852, Rebecca 1840, Lorina 1858 and Amy 1854.
      William Riley drowned in 1863 along with 60 other men while serving in the 59th Tenn. Inf. Regt. Co G. CSA at Chunky Bridge, Mississippi. With him but surviving the day was his brother Andrew. Andrew died in 1866, Ransom in 1863. There are conflicting dates of death for Jacob, one being 1866. So there are definately 3 and possibaly four sons lost to the war. Andrew with sons Jason, Jesse, and Ervine are found alive and thriving on the 1870 census for Cheoh Township, Cherokee Co. in South Carolina.
