This biography is a rough draft. It was auto-generated by a GEDCOM import and needs to be edited.

The Find-A-Grave bios of both Thomas Mills and his niece, Charity Mills, indicate that they had an adulterous affair and were never married. Thomas continued to live with his wife, Elizabeth, until her death in 1771.

Thomas was disowned by the Quakers for his adultery. It is not clear whether or not he repented and later rejoined the Quakers, but the Deep River MM in NC lists his death and allowed him to be buried in the Deep River Cemetery there.

Charity had a child of that union in about 1760. His name was Benoni.

Later Charity married Peter Dillon in 1786.
