J.D. Milton ran a blacksmith shop in Avenstoke in the early 1900s.
After his wife died, he raised two boys and a girl.
One of his sons, Millard Milton, became the postmaster at Avenstoke. The train that traveled through would pick up the mailbag from a hook on a post near the tracks, just like you see in the old westerns.
J.D. Milton’s grandson and Millard’s son, Curtis Milton, was raised in Avenstoke. He brought in an old ledger a while back that came from his grandfather’s blacksmith shop.
