The TALBOT TIMES Newsletter of the ELGIN COUNTY BRANCH ONTARIO GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY VOL. III ISSUE 4 December 1984
has a good article on John Mills coming to Sparta. Here is a little of what is said "Probably Doan, who had ten children, returned home in the winter of 1813 to 1814. In 1814, the Jacob Preffer, Calvin Witt, Isaac Minor, Jesse Page, Thomas Millard, and William and George Parker families arrived. With the conclusion of the War of 1812 Doan went to his old home in Pennsylvania, and a party of eighteen persons came up. These included William Harvey, Samuel Scott, John Mills of New York State, Joseph Albertson, and John Kipp. Some drove cattle by bush trails while others coasted the shore of Lake Erie from Buffalo to Kettle Creek in scows." In the 1800 census in Kingston, Ulster County, New York John Mills and James Miner are living near each other. The records are archived in the Canadain Friends Library.
