Albert M. Mills
The ancestry of the subject of this sketch were of Scotch and English origin.  His grandfather was from Connecticut, of English descent, and an early settler in New Hartford, Oneida county, N.Y., being a contemporary of Hugh White, the father of Whitestown.  His father was Dan C. Mills, a native of New Hartford and a respectable farmer.  He died at New Hartford
in 1883, at the age of eighty-five-years.  His mother was Jane Campbell, whose father, John Campbell, was also from Connecticut, and of Scotch descent, and settled in New Hartford at about the same time with Mr. Mills.  He lived to a great age, two records giving it respectively as 99 and 101 years.  The sturdy characteristics of this ancestry are transmitted
to the son and are sufficient to account for his mental strength and his great capacity for work.  Albert M. Mills was born in New Harford, Oneida county, N.Y., September 10, 1841.
