[Milburn, John G.]
Milburn, John G., of the firm of Rogers, Locke & Milburn, was born near Sunderland, England, December 14, 1851, and at the age of eighteen came to this country and settled in Batavia, where he entered the law office of Wakeman & Watson as a student, and was admitted to the bar in April, 1874. In 1874 he removed to Buffalo, opened an office there and practiced alone until August, 1879, when he formed a law partnership with the Hon. E. C. Sprague and Mr. Henry W. Sprague, under the firm name of Sprague, Milburn & Sprague, which lasted until September, 1882, when Mr. Milburn removed to Denver, Col., where he remained until June, 1883, at which time he returned to Buffalo and became associated with the Hon. Sherman S. Rogers and Franklin D. Locke, under the present firm name of Rogers, Locke & Milburn. Mr. Milburn was for a number of years a member of the Executive Committee of the Buffalo Library. He is looked upon as one of the safest counselors at the Erie county bar, and has been engaged in some of the most important litigations of the county.
