Enos Abijah Mills' Parents:
    Father: Enos, born 26 December 1834, died 17 February 1910 near Richmond in Wayne Co., Indiana. Married Ann Lamb on 28 August 1855 in Dallas County, Iowa.
    Mother: Ann Lamb, born in Grant County, Indiana on 8 November, 1837, daughter of Josiah and Ruth (Lamb) Lamb. Died 4 March 1923.
    Enos became a prominent farmer in Sheridan Township.
    From Enos' obituary in the Pleasanton Enterprise:
" I was born in Wayne County, Indiana, near the town of Richmond, of Quaker parents. I moved to St. Joseph County, Indiana, 1835 where I lived until I was 18 years old, and helped to make a farm in that densely timbered. Went to the state of Iowa in 1850, afoot there were no railroads further west than Peru, Illinois, 90 miles west of Chicago, crossed the Mississippi at Rock Island and Iowa City, which was then the capital of Iowa; went to Dallas County, 50 miles west of Fort Des Moines, and engaged in freighting with ox teams from Keokuk.
    Was married to Miss Anna Lamb on the 28th day of July, 1855. We left for Kansas on the first of May, 1857. Eight families arrived in Linn County on the 6th day of June, 1857, where we have resided ever since.  We came for the avowed purpose of helping to make Kansas a free state; how we succeeded is long since a matter of history.  Here, on the border of Missouri, our trouble began.  Frequent raids from Missouri border ruffians, killed our neighbors.  For  seven long years we remained as a picket post.
    In 1860, my brother, Enoch, and cousin the Rev. E. J. Lamb, my wife and self, took the Pikes Peak fever and left on the 14th day of April, 1860; went via Lawrence,  Topeka, Manhattan, up the Republican River until we intersected the Military road leading from Leavenworth to Fort Kearney, and followed the Platte River 500 miles to Denver.  There were hundreds of Souix Indians on the road, but we were not molested.  Saw a war dance in the streets of Denver, by the Indians.  Our course from Denver was up the Platte River to South Park.  We stopped at the town Tarryall in South Park and did some placer mining for a short time and then crossed over the range where Breckenridge now stand on the Blue River.  There was just one house in Breckenridge, one barrel of whiskey, 25 cents per drink.  Mrs. Mills had the distinction of being the first white woman that ever crossed the range west of Tarryall.  we took a mining claim No. 2, above Bisooney.  It did not pan out right so I abandoned mining, I then took one of my mules and a pack saddle, loaded him with meat at the mouth Gulch and peddled meat to the miners.  I soon quit the meat business and stopped for a short time in a meat market where gold dust was legal tender.  I was then taken down with the     mountain fever, crossed the range on the 8th day of July with snow in places 15 feet deep. Mrs. Mills driving the mules as I was not able to sit up.  Three days landed us in the plains to Eastern Kansas a trip of 700 miles with  Indians in plenty for the first 500 miles, camping all alone."  Six weeks after Enos wrote the above account he died and was buried in the Lamb cemetery.
