The will was dated 10 Feb 1863 and the probate dated 12 Oct 1867. Margaret Anderson Milne, his wife, was listed as a widow (evidently still alive) and Fairly, his son, was listed as already being dead.

The copy of the will is difficult to read but it is clear that John had two more children that were previously not known to me. One whose name was Ellen and the other a daughter named Christiana Milne Land.

Mrs. A. Milne, a pioneer of Bemidji, died of typhoid fever, March 1, 1902, at St. Anthony's hospital, after a short illness. She leaves behind her a husband, two sons, and one daughter to mourn her untimely demise.

Arvilla E. Parsell was born at Plymouth, Ohio, April 24, 1852. She was married in 1870 to Peter Doty, who died in South Dakota in 1887 to which state they moved in 1883. She married Alex Milne a few years previous to their coming to Bemidji.

Services were held at the Red Men's hall Sunday noon over the material remains, when the body was taken to Grand Forks for interment. The attendance was very large and the chaplain, Mrs. Ted Smith, paid a touching and beautiful tribute to the memory of the deceased. She was a kind wife and a loving mother.

Mrs. Milne was a devout Spiritualist, for which up to the hour of her death she was an ardent worker. A beautiful floral tribute in the form of a beautiful wreath was given by the members of that church.

Shared note

It is likely that the two wives of Alexander Milne, Mary Jane Welland and Margaret Millen, are actually the same person - based on their ages and children's ages. In addition the marriage record for Mary Jane Welland says that her father was Hugh Millen and her mother's name was Dorothy. Margaret's father was named Hugh Millen and her mother was also named Dorothy, according to other family records.
