Milo S. Morrill, a prominent lumberman and farmer, was born in Canterbury, January 20, 1846, son of Captain David and Sallie (Peverly) Morrill. Reuben Morrill, was a well-known farmer of Canterbury. The father was also a farmer, and largely interested in lumber. He was a Captain in the militia. His wife was the widow of John Kimball, and his children were: George P., who married Abbie Emery; and Milo S., the subject of this sketch. He died April 6, 1893.

Mr. Morrill received a common-school education. He lived at home, taking care of his parents on the old farm. Upon the death of his father he was left a sixth-interest in the homestead. Three years after he purchased the rest of the estate. The buildings on the property, which contains about five hundred acres, were erected by his father and grandfather. He also stocks a steam-mill located near his house, and where he employs a number of men. Though he is a general farmer and does a small dairy business, the largest part of his income is derived from the lumber business, in which he is extensively engaged. He has never married. His nephew, Charles E. Morrill, with his wife Ida Marsh Morrill, lives with him and helps to carry on the farm. Mr. Morrill is a member of the Free Baptist church. A supporter of the Republican party in politics, he is no office-seeker. It is well known that he has worked hard for the success which has been his, and he is accordingly respected throughout the township and county.
