On 9 May 1760, Milburn received a Fairfax grant for 68 acres (surveyed 4 October 1751) adjacent east of his 180-acre patent land. . . . Milburn conferred one-half of the 180 acres (now recorded as 248 acres "where John lives") to his son Robert on 6 October 1756, with the stipulation that John and his wife Elizabeth were to have "full liberty of all the land during their lifetime."

      Robert Milburn was deceased by 26 May 1760 when an inventory was taken of his estate. Robert married Sarah Littler (daughter of John (b. 1708) and Mary Littler) and their children were: John, David and Robert Milburn.

      John and Elizabeth's son Andrew Milburn received a Fairfax grant for 200 acres adjacent northwest of the 180-acre patent land on 22 May 1766.. . . This land is on Hiatt Run (a branch of Opequon Creek) about ΒΌ mile south of Stephenson, Frederick County, Virginia on U.S. Highway 11, with County Highway 761 crossing the north section of the 200 acres. County Highway 838 intersects the south line and County Highway 662 crosses the east section of the tract. Andrew sold the tract to Thomas McClun for 100 pounds on 2 July 1766.

      John Milburn was deceased by 1 December 1761 when his will (written 14 August 1761) was proved in Frederick County Court. He willed the rent income from Robert Milburn's (deceased) plantation to his daughter-in-law Sarah Bull, with the exception of five pounds annually which was to go to his wife Elizabeth. After Elizabeth's death, the 165-acre plantation was to revert to his grandson John Milburn, son of Robert and Sarah. He willed 83 acres of the 248-acre home plantation to his son Andrew Milburn. His son William Milburn was to receive the sum of "20 pounds current money of New Jersey" when he reached the age of 21; Robert Chapman of Chesterfield Township, Burlington County, New Jersey was authorized to convey this sum to William. John listed daughters: Patience (wife of Charles Perkins), Elizabeth (wife of Jonathan Perkins) and Hannah (wife of William Gilliam). Elizabeth was deceased by 7 September 1773 when her will (written 10 November 1771) was proved in Frederick County Court.

      On 12 October 1763, William Gilliam/Gillum received a Fairfax grant for 167 acres which was part of the land John Frost sold to Peter Falkner in 1737. Falkner died intestate without known heirs. William and his wife Hannah Milburn Gilliam lived on this land. . . .

      John Milburn, son of Robert and Sarah Littler Milburn, was deceased by 3 May 1813 when his will was proved in Frederick County Court. Many of John's relatives moved to Tennessee.
