Milton A Binns was my 3rd Great-Grandfather. He was born August 30, 1836 in Georgia to Burwell and Lucinda Phelps Binns (also buried in Beulah Cemetery – see their gravemarker here). He moved to Arkansas in 1857, but returned to Georgia in 1858 (to marry his wife). He married Susan Ann Dupree, November 10, 1959 in Georgia. They returned to Arkansas and had 11 children. Milton was a prominent farmer and resident of Lacy, Arkansas. He was written about in Goodspeed’s “Biographical and Historical Memoirs of Southern Arkansas” of 1890. He was a Mason. He died November 11, 1896 and was buried in Beulah Cemetery along with parents and several children and grandchildren.
