The municipality of Milam was officially named by the Texas Consultation of 1835 to replace the municipality of Viesca, which is assumed to have had identical boundaries with the Sterling C. Robertson colony. Robertson and George Childress represented the municipality of Milam at the Convention of 1836 at Washington-on-the-Brazos. With the passage of laws by the First Congress of the republic organizing county governments on December 19 and 20, 1836, the municipality became Milam County.

The Milam County Courthouse burned on April 9, 1874 and all records were destroyed. The only surviving item is one surveyor's notebook that contains no genealogical information. (See: Books On-Line)

Milam County is in east central Texas 150-miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico and is bordered by Robertson, Burleson, Lee, Williamson, Bell, and Falls counties. Cameron, the county seat, is at the intersection of U.S. highways 77 and 190 on the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway, 60-miles northeast of Austin and 140-miles south of Dallas.

The county's center lies 4-miles south of Cameron at 3047' north latitude and 9659' west longitude. The present county covers 1,019 square miles of level to slightly rolling terrain at an elevation that ranges from 250 to 600 feet above sea level.
