Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1848, USA
Death: 1939, USA

Born in Indian Territory; Wife of Franklin Pierce Milligan. Dau. of Moses and Mahala Fields; grddtr.of Chief Richard Fields, Jr. & Jennie Buffington, Cherokee Nation. Her father's Maysville (Arkansas) inn and store on the Military Road,was the setting for high level parley between Genl. Stand Watie CSA, and the Union General Buell and staff attempting peaceful exchange of prisoners after the Neosho battle, and during the Civil War strife. etc. Both Watie's and Buell staffs and soldiers stood down during this. Sophronia, in her memoirs, remembered the tension as being very high; she never forgot it. The family finally fled to another town for safety. She returned to Maysville with her mother; the Fields' hotel had been burned down.The family rebuilt the home and stores which she and her mother managed for years. [Note about Stand Watie:Sophronia had a teenager's crush on this mannerly man with the dynamic personality and they were pals until his death,living nearby.]
