Orrie Milligan, whose fine farm of four hundred and fifty acres lies on the Independence road in Warren township, was born where he now lives on November 16, 1882, and he is the son of Robert A. and Mary (Smalley) Milligan. Robert Milligan, who was a pioneer of this county, was born in Hamilton county, Ohio, and came in a covered wagon. He had received his education in Ohio and his first trip to this section of Indiana was as a looker for land.

The subject of this sketch was reared under the parental roof tree and was given splendid educational advantages. After completing the course in the country schools, he attended the Attica public school. He then supplemented this preparatory training by taking the classical course in Michigan University, at Ann Arbor, leaving that institution with a good practical education. He then returned home and assumed the management of his father's farm, to the operation of which he has devoted himself. He gives intelligent direction to the work to which he has applied himself and is meeting with results fully commensurate with his efforts. He is thoroughly up-to-date in his methods and no detail of the farm work escapes his attention. The place is well improved in every respect and is numbered among the best farms of this section of the county. Mr. Milligan raises all the crops common to this section of the country, and also gives considerable attention to the raising of live stock, in which he has been very successful and which he has found to be a profitable source of income.

On October 3, 1906, Orrie Milligan was united in marriage with Esta Judy, the daughter of John F. and Matilda (Hunter) Judy, a sketch of whom appears elsewhere in this work. To Mr. and Mrs. Milligan have been born two children, Dorothy Ellen and Elsie Virginia.

Fraternally, Mr. Milligan is a member of the Knights of Pythias. Personally, he is genial and friendly and is well liked by all who are acquainted with him.
