Juke Joint, Calhoun County

I first though this was a juke joint, considering its small size and location just outside the city limits of Morgan. Shawn Weathersby wrote that it might be associated with the Milner Grist Mill but Toni Milner writes: It is an old beer joint. My grandfather Sonny “Plunk” Milner sold beer out of it back in the day. The Grist Mill is housed in the building to the left of this building.

        It is an old beer joint… My grandfather Sonny “Plunk” Milner sold beer out of it back in the day.. The Grist Mill is housed in the building to the left of this building.

        Hi, Toni. My Milners are from this area. I am the 3x great granddaughter of Sonny Elious Milner. Do you know how my Sonny and your Sonny are related? Would love to know anything about the family! Thanks!

        I should add… I am the 3x great granddaughter of both Sonny and Rollin/ Raleigh Milner. They were sons of Armstead Milner.
