John Alan Milhous was a native of Camden, Kershaw Co. S.C. and son of John Milhous and Anna Stewart Milhous. He was the husband of Tabitha Burk Powell Milhous. He was a primitive Baptist minister who preached for years in the Wooley Springs vicinity. "On 18 Sep 1855, Thomas Hobbs recorded: "Went to a Hardshell Baptist meeting. Messrs. Milhous and Crutcher preached....After two sermons we had communion and the washing of feet. It was the first time I ever saw the latter exercise. Crutcher took off his coat, girded himself with apron, and washed Mill's (sic) feet from a large pewter basin; then his own were washed by M. and then the laity participated. The ladies were engaged in another part of the house." THE LURE & LORD OF LIMESTONE COUNTY Published by Limestone County Historical Society Portals Press Tuscaloosa. Ref: mwhitten Findagrave.)
