- Dora Nolan wrote: James Matthew Mills is still a mystery. It is possible he could be the son of William Mills that settled in Collin County, Texas. William was from East Tennessee and his first born son named James rode off to join the Civil War and was never heard from again.
Our James and family was in Southeast Missouri, Stone County census in 1860 along with other Mills and Cloud families. James M. Mills joined the Missouri Militia April 1, 1863 and served in the Civil War. He was on furlough on February 27, 1864 and on his way home when he was bushwacked by the Rebels. They took his gun and horse and left him in the snow to die.
His name is given as "Mat Mills" on his son William Burrell Mills' death certificate.
