  Nodaway Democrat, pg. 8 "We are sorry that we have to chronicle the sad death of our citizen Mr. A.A. Milligan, who came to his death last Monday morning at 9 o'clock a.m. while trying to fish saw logs to the shore in the Nodaway river, the river being very high, and while out in the middle of the river a log came down swiftly and struck the boat. Mr. Milligan being afraid of the boat turning over jumped into the river intending, it is supposed, to swim to the shore, when he became excited and went under. When he came to the top for the last time he cried for help, which were the only words uttered by the drowning man. He never made his appearance again until his body was recovered a few hours after. When he jumped from the boat it turned over and came very near drowning his son-in-law Wm. Morris. Mr. Milligan was born in Perry County, Ohio in 1842, and came to Missouri several years ago. He was a member of the ME church from his youth up, and also a member of the GAR at this place under which order he was buried. He leaves a wife and seven children to mourn his loss. The bereaved ones have the sympathy of the entire community,"
  Nodaway Democrat, pg. 4 "August 10th A. Milligan, a well known citizen of Graham, Mo., was drowned in the Nodaway river by the capsizing of a boat while catching drift wood near the Maitland mill. Wm. Morris, his son-in-law, and one of the mill hands, came near drowning at the same time. Mr. Milligan leaves a wife and eight children in destitute circumstances. He was buried August 11th by the Grand Army of the Republic of which fraternity he was an honored member. "190,191
 In an article dated February 2, 1882 in the Clay County newspaper it reads: "Mr. A. A. Milligan, of Graham, Missouri, formerly of Clay County, has been visiting relatives and friends near Center Point. Mr. Milligan expresses himself well pleased with Missouri.". ONE HUNDRED AND FOURTEENTH O.V.I. -This regiment was organized at Camp Circleville, in August, 1862, and came from the counties of Perry, Fairfield, Pickaway, Fayette, Hocking and Vinton. Companies G and I were enlisted in Perry county. Company G was raised by Captain Ephraim Brown and Lieutenants Hiram Thomas and others. The men composing this company were chiefly from Pike, Monday Creek and Jackson townships. Company I was raised by Captain L. F. Muzzy and Lieutenants J. D. Coulson and W H. Goodin, the men coming principally from Pike, Reading, Clayton, Hopewell and Madison townships. The regiment was mustered into service September 11th, 1862, and remained at Camp Circleville until about the 20th of September following, when it marched across the country to Chillicothe, and there took the cars for Marietta, at which latter place it was stationed until the first of December, 1862, in the mean while occupied in drilling and taking other lessons in the science of war. In the latter part of December, the regiment started on transports down the Ohio and Mississippi rivers to Memphis, Tenn. Soon after, it joined Sherman´┐Żs army in the first expedition against Vicksburg. The regiment landed at Chickasaw Bluffs, and was soon hotly engaged in the battle that ensued at this point, losing several men in killed and wounded. The assault was unsuccessful; the Federal troops were repulsed and ordered aboard the boats. Returning from Chickasaw Bluffs and no longer menacing Vicksburg, the army moved up the river and on up to Arkansas Post. A landing was there effected, the Post attacked, and after a brief but sharp engagement, it surrendered. After the reduction of Arkansas Post, the regiment was ordered to Young's Point, Louisiana, and went into camp at that place. This camp was very unhealthy, and while lying there, the regiment lost about one hundred men from malarial diseases. In March, 1862, a removal was made to Milliken's Bend, and the regiment remained in camp there until General Grant ordered the movement against Vicksburg. The One Hundred and Fourteenth was in all this campaign, and participated in the battles of Thompson's Hill, Champion Hill, Black River Bridge, and the long, painful siege of the beleaguered city. The regiment lost a number of men at Thompson's Hill, Black River Bridge, and in the charge at Vicksburg, on the 22d of May. During the siege, Colonel Cradlebaugh, the regimental commander, was very severely wounded. After the fall of Vicksburg, July 4th, 1863, the One Hundred and Fourteenth marched and countermarched, or moved by rail on a number of minor expeditions into the State of Louisiana. In November, 1863, the regiment embarked at New Orleans and sailed across the Gulf to Texas. This proved to be a somewhat stormy voyage, and most of the men soon became very sea-sick. Captain Ephraim Brown of New Lexington felt so well on the water for a while, that he was disposed to make a little sport of his comrades for collapsing so easily; he declared the sensation was just "splendid, " and strikingly reminded him of riding over a cornfield at home on a load of hay. It is enough to say that the Captain's" riding on a load of hay, "failed to hold out according to promise, and he could not have comprehended a joke, if that article had floated around, as plentiful as blackberries on "Brier Ridge".
 The regiment and accompanying troops were the first National forces that occupied the State of Texas during the war. It remained at different points in Texas until April, 1864, when it re-crossed the Gulf, and formed a junction with General Banks at Alexandria, to which point his command had fallen back, after its disastrous expedition up the Red River country. The One Hundred and Fourteenth joined the National forces in the general retreat from Alexandria to Morganza, Louisiana, on the Mississippi. This was one of the severest and most frying marches of the war, as the retreating forces were constantly harassed by the enemy on flank and rear. In January, 1865, the regiment was ordered to Barrancas, Florida, from which point it participated in the investment and capture of Mobile; the last battle of the war, for the place was captured on the day that Lee surrendered.
 John H. Kelly, of New Lexington, who was Major of the regiment, was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel, and then to Colonel of the regiment. When acting as Lieutenant Colonel, he was frequently in command of the regiment, as Colonel Cradlebaugh had been severely wounded at Vicksburg~. and eventually resigned. Captain V. M. Ogle, o f New Lexington, served a while as Quartermaster, but resigned before the close of the war. Rev. Theodore Stowe, also of New Lexington, served as Chaplain, and was mustered out with the regiment. Rev. Stowe was perhaps the most abstemious and exacting Chaplain in the whole army. Colonel Kelly once invited his brother officers, including the Chaplain, to a good, sociable dinner in his tent. 'Colonel Kelly being a strictly temperate man, used no stimulating liquors, but did not taboo tobacco, and consequently the tent soon after dinner, began to get pretty well filled with tobacco smoke. Chaplain Stowe began to remonstrate, whereupon the Colonel took him to one side and gently told him that the tent was his house, the officers there were his invited guests, and he did not want him to make remarks that might be considered offensive. The mild looking Chaplain, raising his hand and pointing his long, bony finger in the direction of the tent, slowly replied: "Colonel, I know that rag is yours, but no man has a proprietorship in God's pure air, and it is both ungentlemanly and wicked to pollute it " This closed the debate, and the Chaplain retired from participating in the after dinner festivities.
 As previously stated, the Perry companies of the regiment suffered greatly from malicious diseases while encamped in the neighborhood of Vicksburg; and at the time the movement upon that place was ordered, the sick men were directed to be sent home. About twenty men of the Perry companies reached New Lexington by special train one Sabbath morning, without any previous announcement whatever. They were all weak and emaciated, and had to be placed on beds and hauled up into town, and to their several homes. Some of them were too weak to hold up their heads. They remained at home several weeks, and some of them months; but they nearly all finally recovered, and rejoined their companies. The arrival of these very sick men, in such a weak and debilitated condition, was a distressing and pitiful sight. But even these sick men were more fortunate than others; for many a stout, hardy son of Perry died and was buried on the banks of the Mississippi. 192 He appeared on the census of 1850 in McLuney, Perry County, Ohio.
 He enlisted on 22 Aug 1862 in New Lexington, Ohio, and mustered in on September 9, 1862 at Camp Circleville, Co. 1, 114th Regiment of Ohio Volunteers. This Regiment was organized at Camp Circleville, Ohio in September, 1862, to serve three years. The 120th Regiment Ohio Infantry was consolidated with it November 27, 1864. It was mustered out of service July 31, 1865 in accordance with orders from the War Department, and the recruits were transferred to the 48th Battalion Ohio Infantry. 195 He was injured during the Siege of Vicksburg at Chickasaw Bluff when a shell fired by the rebel forces exploded new him, producing by the concussion, a -cleft palate, or a bursting of the roof of his mouth and a catarrh of the head or nose, destroying his smell, and unfitting him for business or hard labor on 27 Dec 1862 in Vicksburg, Warren County, MississippiJ96 He mustered out of military service on 31 Jul1865 in Houston, Texas. 197 He lived in Oct 1869 in Orton, Seward County, Nebraska. 198 He appeared on the census of 8 Aug 1870 in p.o.
