There’s a brief biographical sketch of “Thos. J. Milsaps” in T.C. Catchings and Mrs. M.C. Torrey, THE CATCHINGS AND HOLLIDAY FAMILIES:

“Thos. J. Milsaps…, b. Copiah Co., Miss, 1834, m. in 1870, a daughter of Hon. John Fatheree, of Holmes Co. He was educated at Hanover College, Indiana, and Centenary College, Jackson, La. Read law. When the Civil War began he enlisted and fought throughout. He represented his State in the legislature of 1887 and 1889. He was widely known as a brilliant member of the Masonic fraternity.”

Goodspeed’s MISSISSIPPPI (Vol. II, p. 444) has additional information, in the context of a sketch of his brother, Judge Uriah Millsaps.

His father was also named Thomas Millsaps. His mother was Elizabeth Holliday, the daughter of Ayers and Olivia (Johnston) Holliday. Thomas Holliday (my great-great-grandfather), in whose household he was listed in the 1860 Goliad census, was his uncle.
