Day, Milo E., Middlebury, was born in Middlebury, Addison county, Vt., on the second day of August, 1834. His parents were Milo K. and Persis (Murray) Day. Milo K. came to Addison county, Vt., and settled in Middlebury with his father, Reuben Day, in 1813. He was a teamster, and early in life, after learning the trade of jeweler, came to East Middlebury, Vt., and opened a general store there for three or four years. He then went to Ripton, Vt., and engaged in the lumbering and saw-mill business, and while there he was selectman, town representative, and constable. He returned to East Middlebury, Vt., about 1875 and purchased the store property now owned by his son, Milo E., and continued the general merchant business until the time of his death, which occurred on March 5, 1877. Milo E. Day was educated in the common schools. He assisted his father in the saw-mill, and also in the mercantile business, and has carried on the business since the death of his father. He was married in April, 1854, to Lydia Bailey. They have had seven children born to them, six of whom are now living — three daughters and three sons. He was a selectman of Salisbury while a resident there. He is a self-made man, having no start whatever in life.
