Lambdin P. Milligan was a native of Belmont County, Ohio, studied law in his native state and practiced at St. Clairsville for sometime before locating at Huntington in January, 1853. He had come to Huntington County about eight years before, but had lived upon a farm for the purpose of regaining his health. After his admission to the bar of the county he rapidly rose to a position as one of the foremost lawyers of Northern Indiana. He was frequently associated with Mr. Coffroth in the conduct of cases, and together they were recognized as two of the state’s eminent attorneys.
