BIOGRAPHY: Amos Milton, the 6th child of Simeon and Nancy Vaughn Garriott, bought several more acres of land in Elk Creek Valley, Gibson Township, Washington County, from the government. Amos Milton was a soil conservationist and, like his father, Simeon, knew that, "The soil and the forests needed to be protected. He realized that the land, even in this lush country could wear out and that the forest, which had been so many years in growing could be depleted in a short time through overcutting. He treated the land as a precious heritage, passing this appreciation on down to his son, Augustus."
