Benjamin B. Mills – A Man of Mystery

Benjamin Buckner Mills, was my great grandfather.  Oral family history says he came from England.  What we do know is he ended up at Ft. Laramie Wyoming and was the sutler at the store.  A man of mystery because in the 1860 census he put his birth place at Michigan.  1870 census birth place said Kentucky.  He married a full blood Lakota Sallie Bush.  He had a good reputation and was known as a frontiersman.  My next Podcast will continue with his story of being at the 1868 Ft Laramie treaties.
