MILLICAN, ROBERT G.
MILLICAN, ROBERT G. (ca. 1800–?). Robert G. Millican, pioneer, son of Letitia and William Templeton Millican, was born in Spartanburg County, South Carolina, probably around 1800. The 1846 census enrolled him in Goliad County, Texas. He was a member of Stephen F. Austin's Old Three Hundred colonists. He arrived in December 1821 with his parents, a brother, and two sisters. On May 4, 1838, he received a bounty warrant for 320 acres from the secretary of war for service from March 26, 1836, to July 25, 1836. On October 1, 1850, a 320-acre tract in Williamson County was patented to him.
