The Anthony Mills Home - "The Other Place"

It was on the hill near where his second home was built and not too far from where the present day Union Cemetery is located.

This was Anthony Mills' first home in Ray County, MO. 

From the photo files of M. Virginia Mills

Concerning this photo of Anthony's home "on the hill" at what we call "the other place," we cannot confirm that it was built by Anthony. It may have been on the land when the land was purchased in the name of his wife, Dicie (Messer) Mills. I suspect that it was built by someone else, in that the construction appears to be older than the date of arrival in Missouri of Anthony. (1880s) [Ref: Virginia Mills]

M. Virginia Mills shared this photo with us. I took a photo of the original with my digital camera. It was in very bad shape and she so she pieced it together the best she could. It was found in the attic of her home. [The house was build by her husband's great uncle on his mother's side of the family. I had reported that Anthony Mills had build the house but Virginia says that is not correct.]

 

At the time she located it, the older generation had already passed on and so there are people in it that she does not know who they are. If you see someone in the photo that you can identify, please drop me a note.  Below is what Virginia told me about the photo.

"I believe the older man seated, rather fat, to be Anthony Mills, a son of John, grandson of Nasby. The woman to his right, separated by a small girl, would be Dicy (Messer) Mills. The little girl to his left, I believe, to be Calvina Mills, daughter of Samuel and Pherriba (Frakes) Mills. The stern looking woman over the left shoulder of the little girl would be Pheriba Mills, Calvina's mother and, standing just behind Pherriba, would be her husband, Samuel Mills. The man to the left of Samuel Mills, I believe, to be one of his brothers. The young man to the left of Pherriba could be her son by her first marriage to a man that was named Thomas Creason, or it could be a brother of Samuel's, but because he looks almost too young to be a brother of Samuel's, I think it is George Creason. I cannot make out what house this might be, I know it is not the one where we are living now because the porch is too high. It could be the second house at what we call the "other place" which was where Anthony and Dicy settled, but I didn't think that house had been built yet at that time. Calvina Mills was born in 1885 and she appears to be about 3 years old in this photo, that's the way I decided this was Anthony Mills. Calvina Mills was 11 years older than my husband's father, Jewell McKinley Mills, who was born in 1896. I estimate the photo was taken about 1890. Anthony Mills died in December of 1900, so this photo may have been taken about 10 years before his death."
