When he was young, his family moved a lot. Therefore, he didn't get a very good education. By the time he turned thirteen he had attended six different schools.

After the fourth grade, his mother decided that Milton should leave school and learn a trade.

In 1872, Milton went to work for Joseph Royer at the Lancaster confectionery shop.
