Milford, Texas History, Genealogy and Trivia

The sign out side Milford use to read: "A town of 600 friendly people and 2or 3 old grouches. Though many may lay claim, my grandfather Clarence Wheatley was supposedly one of those grouches. He lived in Milford, or Ellis, all his life. He was born in 1893. His wife, my grandmother, Lota Pearl Wheatley, helped run the posti office--I think during the 50's.
