This family was descended from tlie same Scotch-Irish ancestry as many 
others whose pedigrees are found in this vohime, and the prominent charac- 
teristics developed by them are the same. These are said to be great con- 
scientiousness, firmness blended with strong sympathies and emotions, habits 
of industry, frugality, and liberality, a hatred of cant and hypocrisy, and 
strong religious inclinations. They have manifested inditterence to display or 
notoriety, but are not averse to deserved merit and advancement. One who 
is familiar with them has written : " I have never heard of one of them, old or 
young, being charged with the least act of dishonesty, and I never knew that 
one of the family was arrested or charged with a criminal offence." Illustra- 
tions could be given of their acts of benevolence, philanthropy and helpfulness 
to others almost unparalleled. 

Robert Milliken^ (1), came from Londonderry, Ireland, about the year 
1801. and settled in Huntingdon Co., Pennsylvania. He had married, and it 
was reported that several sons were left in his native land who never came to 
America. A younger brother came but was killed by the kick of a horse 
soon after his arrival. In the course of three or four years Robert Milliken 
removed to Mercer County, and settled two mileS north of Sharon, on a farm, 
where he remained until his death. This farm remains in the Milliken 

He brought over two certificates of character. One reads : '' I do hereby 
certify that I have known Robert Milliken these twelve vears past, & he 
always Behaved Soberly, Honestly and Industriously." This was dated at 
Killeroughan. County Londonderry, May 9, 1801. The second document 
contained the following : " I do sartify that Robert Millikan was born & 
allers Resided in the Congregation of Gobermore, parish of Killeroacha & 
County of Londonderry, and is a Regular member and may be admitted into 
the priveledges of any worshipping Society or Congregation. Sartified May 
15, 1801, by Sam'l Sinclair.'' 

Tradition claims that this Robert Milliken was only two or three genera- 
tions removed from Scottish ancestors who left Scotland because of religious 
persecution. These Millikens were of the staunch Covenanter stock and in- 
tense haters of Romanists. Robert was married to ^L\RV Semple in Mercer 
County, and by this union four children were born, named as follows: 

1. James Milliken- CI), eldest son of Robert^ (1), settled upon the farm where 
he was b. and remained there during his long and useful life. He was a man 
of great benevolence and sterling integrity who had the esteem of a wide cir- 
cle of acquaintances, and when he d., in 1894, his funeral was attended by a 
large assembly. He was 83 years of age. 

2. Mary Milliken- (1;, daughter of Robert' (1), d. at the age of twenty-one 
or twenty-two, unm. 

3. Robert Milliken- (7.), second son of Robert^ (1), d. at the age of twenty- 
eight, unm. 



4. John Milliken- (1), third son of Robert' (1), b. July 21, 1816; m. Mar- 
G\RET McKay, who d. in 1S59, and he m., second. Caroline A. Heweit. 
who was Uving in 1S94. He d. Mar. i, 1872. He was a farmer all his life 
and became worth 5150.000. By his first wife there were ten children; by 
his second wife nine. Four of the first family died young, and three of the 
second in infancy. Those surviving are as follows :

18 ; m. Queen Victoria McBurxey and has two sons. Residence in 

Nampa, Idaho. He is a highly educated man, and has followed civil en- 
gineering, horticulture, and teaching all his life. He lived for about 25 
years at Emporia. Kan., and filled various positions of trust there. Was 
elected to the chair of horticulture and agriculture in the University of Idaho, 
at a salar>- of 5 1,800 a year, about 1891, but resigned and moved westward. 
Children as follows :

III. Charles S. Milliken, m. Florence E. Duvall, and was for a long 
time bookkeeper for a flouring mill company at McPherson, Kan., but

he resides, in 1894. 

IV. James Milliken, is living with his mother (1894) in Kansas City, Mo., 
where he is an expressman. 

V. Margaret Milliken, is a stenographer in the ofhce of an implement 
company in Kansas City, and lives at home (1894). 

3. Sarah E. Milliken^ (1), eldest daughter of John-^ (1), b. in Mercer Co., 
Pa. ; was m. in i860, to John Milliron, of Indiana County. He was a sol- 
dier' in the Civil War' and after his return home was killed by a piece of fall- 
ing slate in his own coal mine. She was m. secondly, to Oviait, and 

with him resides in Cleveland, O. She had four children. 

4. Hon. John D. Milliken^ (3), third son of John^ (1), b. in Mercer Co., 
Pa. ; m. Mei.lio V. Skinner at Emporia, Kan., Oct. i, 187 1. He was ed- 
ucated up to one term of a minor college, and was. in early life, a teacher and 
surveyor. At the age of eighteen he migrated to Missouri and two years later 
settled in central Kansas. After a sojourn at home he returned to Kansas in 
1879, and located at McPherson, where he now resides "in the peaceful 



possession of a lucrative law practice, a good share of worldly goods, and the 
esteem of his fellow citizens." He was admitted to the bar in i8So, and was, 
in 1894, President of the Kansas State Bar Association — the highest honor 
that can come to a lawyer from his professional contemporaries." As a trial 
lawyer he is bold, yet cautious ; deliberate, yet decisive; candid, and intensely 
earnest. He is a clear reasoner and energetic speaker, always pathetic and 
often eloquent, unbounded in sympathy, but severe when required. With a 
power to read men's minds as an open book, he reaches the hearts and con- 
vinces the judgment of juries and succeeds in trials as few men do. He is 
pre-eminently successful in criminal cases, and always defends upon the 
theory that the causes which impel criminal acts are proper subjects for judi- 
cial consideration. He delights in the study of sociolog\-. and often declares 

that his highest ambition is to become a Iau>yer, with all' that word implies 

hence the ethical standard of his professional life is on a high plane. In a 
word, John D. Milliken is a Christian citizen. Three childreli, named as fol-

Family tradition makes this branch of the MiUiken chm of Ulster stock 
It is said that three brothers, whose names were Thomas. James, and Michael, 
came from some of the northern counties of Ireland about i75o-f of whom 
the latter died on the vovage. and the two former sat down m Chester Co., 
Pa We know from the'earlv records of Chester, that a whole nest of Milli- 
kens were living there as early as 1750, and that numerous branches haihng 
from this locality have scattered through Pennsylvania. Ohio, and many states 
farther west Some removed to North Carolina during the great Quaker immi- 
gration as early as i7:;S. and their posterity is now almost as numberless as 
?he - sands on the seashore." There was a Tames Milliken (spelled Milhcan 
by an illiterate clerk) at East Nantmeal, Chester Co., Pa., from 1753 to 175O, 
whose name appears on the tax lists as " unmarried." ^ 

This Juniata family is from old Presbyterian stock, and many ot tne name 
are still communicants of that church, to which a number of clergymen have 
been criven, one at least of world-wide fame as the hero of Johnstown, Pa., 
durino- the great tiood. and one a missionary to China. The characteristics 
of the° Scotch-Irish have been conspicuous in this family from their ancestor 
to the present generation. They are conservative, determined, honest, and 
good state builders ; progressive and fond of education. Many, latterly, are 
in the medical profession. Some were Democrats, but left the part)- on the 
slavery issue, and recentlv a good number are Prohibitionists. They have 
inherited mechanical tastes and abilities, and their attention has been turned 
toward mechanical engineering and wood-working. Many have been farmers ; 
some of them prominent as patrons of husbandry. Without aspiring to 
political distinction, some were called to legislative halls, and others to dis- 
charge the duties of judicial positions. 

NoTE.-There is preserved in this family as an heirloom, a day-book of one John 
Milliken who was a merchant in Dublin. Ireland, in the early part ot last century (the 8 h), 
and family tradition, which lacks verification, has it that this John Mdhken came to UuU n 
irom Caithness, Scotland (Cromartv), and that three of his sons or sons ot Thomas lis 
broTher emic^ra ed to America, sat down in Chester Co.. Pa., and became the ancestors of a 
hos of Vnilikens in the middle and western states. There were certainly fam.hes of th^ 
name in Caithnes.shire. Scotland, as records in this book prove ; and eariy in the i6th century 
a small army of Millikens in Chester Co., Pa. 

Thomas Milliken^ (1), parents' names unknown, b. as early as 1730. came from 
one of the northern counties of Ireland, and with his brother, as before 
mentioned, sat down t^rst in Chester Co.. Pa. He subsequently secured a 
grant of several hundred acres of land in Juniata Co.. pronably between 1760 
ind 1770, and there cleared his farm, now in Spruce Hdl Township m the 
Tuscarora Vallev. He married Jank McConnki.l, a daughter of a pioneer 
family At the beginning of the Revolution, he with several neighbors walked 
to Lancaster, Pa., where thev joined a company of e.xpert riHemen. then being 
made up ; a companv that became a part of the Second Regiment, and was sent 
to Cambridge. Mass., where they arrived Aug. 4. 1775- ^n^ participated in 
the latter en-a-ements in the locality under General Lee. He was with 


Arnold at Quebec, and during the expedition rendered valuable service as a 
spy. Afterwards, he served under Putnam, and was attached to Washington's 
staff. In 1778, completely broken down by long marches, exposure to cold 
and hunger, he was sent home and soon died. He was buried in the "McKee 
gra\-eyard," so called. His sons were: Jo/ui, /anies, EdzL<ard, Sa?niiel and 

Note. — James Milliken Esq.. late of Marionville, Mo., wrote the compiler of this 
volume, that his grandfather had three or four daughters ; that one m. IIu:^/ies, one m. Guil- 
ford, and another m. Gray. Subsequent statements from a reliable source show that there 
were twin daughters of Mrs. Milliken named Mciry and Martha, who were only half-sisters 
of the sons of Thomas Milliken. Mary Milliken m. George Guilford, and Martha Milliken 
m. Asher Muddaugh. Perhaps •' nuf sed." 

The Millikex Homestead. 

The old Milliken homestead is situated about one mile from the Fort of the 
Tuscarora Mountain, and on the northwest side, and originally consisted of 
400 acres, but divided into three farms, the homestead comprising 170 acres. 
The first house, built of rough, undressed logs, was of two rooms, and had an 
immense chimney also built of logs. This pioneer dwelling stood on a hill 
directly east from the present house, which is in the centre of the farming 
land. It was built about 1754, and was the scene of an Indian tragedy. 
After the second house was built, the old log hut was tenanted by a family 
named Jacobs. One evening when his wife was preparing supper, her hus- 
band was tr}-ing to soothe their year-old babe, and becoming impatient ex- 
claimed, "If you do not keep quiet I will call the Indians to take you," and 
at that moment a tawny hand was extended over his shoulder, the child grasped, 
and in another instant its blood stained the door-post ; while the unhappy 
father was bound, and compelled to see his wife tomahawked and scalped. 
The supper was eaten by the Indians, and Jacobs, a prisoner, marched toward 
the setting sun. When they reached a spring the Indians bound their captive 
to a beech tree (which is still standing), and while thus confined, with a nail 
which he found in his pocket, he scratched the story on the bark. The 
savages were pursued, overtaken when asleep, left dead around their camp fire, 
and their captive brought back in triumph. 

The present residence, and the fifth house built on the farm, was erected 
in 1833. It is of mountain stone, the walls are two feet in thickness, and 
there is an immense chimney at each end with four open fireplaces, chimney 
pieces and mantles. This house has nine rooms, and a hall nine feet 
wide extending from side to side, in which a stair leads to the second 
story. Water is brought in pipes from a never failing spring at the foot of 
a hill on which the mansion stands. A fine apple orchard is cultivated on 
the northwest, and with peaches, pears, and grapes on the southeast. Every 
field on the farm is named, and the site of each of the five houses is well 
known. - 

On the northwest side of the farm is the highway leading from Mexico to Con- 
cord, known locally as the " mountain road." The nearest town on the

John Milliken, a sheep farmer in Ayrshire, Scotland, Hved near the outlet and 
within a stone's throw of Loch Doon. He was b. in the year 1700, his 
parents' names not known. By his tirst marriage, late in life, he had a son 
John, and after the death of this wife, whose maiden name does not appear, 
he m. Margaret Milligax of Gallowayshire. in 17S1. She was of the old 
family so long possessed of Blackmyre farm. By this union there were two 
sons,'7y/^w^75 -Awd James. The father d. in 17S5, and. in accordance with the 
prevalent custom, the widow retained her maiden name : and as the father was 
dead, the sons spelled their names " Milligan " as their mother continued to 
do. She was afterwards m. to William MacAdam. a near relative of John 
Loudon MacAdam who invented the system of road-making that bears his 
name. See forward for genealog}- of descendants. 

Note. — The members of this family in Scotland were members of the Established 
Presbyterian Church. 

I. John Milligan- (2), eldest son of John^ (1), b. on Meadowhead farm. Ayr- 
shire, Scotland, Oct. 13. 1752; emigrated to America in 1773, locating near 
Carlisle, Penn.. where he managed a flouring mill, and in 1775 m. Mary 
Adams, who was b. in 1750. and d. Jan. 6, 1843, aged 93 years. In 17S0 they 
settled in South Huntinton Township, Westmoreland Co.. Penn., on a farm 
then owned by John Carnahan, and since known as the " Willow Tree Farm."' 
In 17S5 he purchased the farm near Bell's Mills in Sewickley Township, and 
ever smce known as the " Milligan Farm," where his descendants still remain 
and continue the title. He d. Apr. 30, 1837, and was buried in the Dick 
churchyard. His family consisted of ten children, three sons and seven 
daughters, of whom more with 3d generation. 

John Milligan, Esq.'s, first residence on the •• Willow Tree Farm" was noth- 
ing more or less than a log cabin about 30 feet long and iS feet wide, which 
was kitchen, bedroom, dining-room, all within the enclosure. The garret con- 
sisted of all the space above the square of the building, and was the granary 
and provisional repositor}- of all their eatables, — their smoked meats, flour, 
corn, etc. 

The house was built of logs, unhewed ; the cracks were closed by moss, and 
pieces of wood, split of sufficient size to dri\e into the interspace. The floor 
was made oi pnnc/ieons, which were simple timbers split into such thickness as to 
make an even surface, then hewn into the level after the same was laid. 

There were four windows, which consisted of four lights of glass 8 by 10. 
The door was also of split material, pinned together, and hung by wooden 
hinges, with an immense bar fastened on the inside to secure it against forcible 
entrance. Tlie fastening of the door was a wooden latch with a string passing 
through a hole to the outside : and for safety against the intrusion of wander- 
ing Indians, the string was pulu:d inside at night, which was a sure sign 
that they were at home. And when the latch-string was found outside the 
door, it was conceded that the family was " at home " to the public. 



About two years after their residence was established here, the family went 
to attend a weddini,^ and while there, in the evening when all was being made 
merry, the frivolities were quickly quelled by a runner who announced the 
fact that there were Indians skulking around in the neighborhood. This im- 
mediateh' caused them all to look after their rities. which had been carried 
^vith them as was customary to do on all occasions. About this time it was 
discovered and announced that John Milligan's house was on tire, and it 
proved only too true. This was in the fall of the year after everything had 
been stored for the winter. An immediate skirmish line was thrown out, and 
the settlers scoured the vicinity, but beyond catching sight of a Heeing Indian 
and an exchange of a few shots, no further results were obtained. When the 
fire had suffici'ently died out to enable them to look after their belongings, 
they found that the sum total of their personal property, not destroyed, con- 
sisted of an iron kettle, remnants of a couple of knives, and an iron spoon. 
This same kettle is an heirloom, and is owned by Margaret Milligan. daughter 
of John, son of John. 

This sad loss necessitated John. Esq., to begin again, and little by little 
they accumulated sufficient to refurnish a second log cabin on this farm, but. 
being progressixe. he began to look around for a home of his own. He de- 
cided on a farm which was located across the Big Sewickley Creek, and it 
consisted of -'48 acres which had been patented by Andrew^ Baggs, and 
bought and occupied bv John Milligan, Esq.. in the year 17S5. 

This farm had as improvements, the pioneer log cabin or house of about 
equal dimensions as the first homestead, and was called •• Andrew's Retreat." 
It also had what was known as a '• Still House.'" located within a few yards of 
where Walter B. Milligan now lives. A few acres had been cleared, and the 
balance of the estate was covered with heavy forests of white oak. sprinkled 
along the stream with beech and maple, and interspersed with hickorv", wal- 
nut, and wild cherry. 

The farm, in its'entirety. falls east and south, rolling with some abruptness 
on the eastern border along the " Big Sewickley Creek : " along with some 
additional acreage, a frontage of nearly two miles was covered. The land all 
receded from the creek in a gentle slope, was well watered with never fail- 
ing springs, and the soil of which was arable, nearest the creek, of heavy 
limestone land, while the higher ridges of the farm were of sandy loam. 
The rock formation consists of sandstone, limestone, and all underlaid with 

Later on, about the year 1S02, preparations were made for building a 
homestead more desirable in its character. A brickyard was started within 
a few hundred yards of where the new home was to be built, and by the year 
1804 the present mansion was built of brick: the dimensions of the main 
building being 60 feet long by 24 feet wide, with 10 feet stories, and cellar 
under the main building, the foundation wall being on solid rock except about 
3 feet. The stone wall was of sutlicient height to clear the surface of the 
ground. Then the brick wall started which was 23 inches thick, which thick- 
ness was carried from the stone wall to the top of the first story : then from 
that to the square of the building was 18 inches. 

The framework, windows and doors, were of the best selected oak, and 
the finish, doors, staircases, and mantles, were made of wild cherry. Two of 
the mantles, one in the dining-room, and the other in the room above, are the

work of James C. Milligan, beautifully carved, all done with a chisel and 

The dividing walls are all brick on the first story. The kitchen was not 
completed until the next year, its dimensions being 20 feet by 20 feet, built on 
the same general principle as the balance of the house, excepting that the 
fireplace was S feet wide, capable of admitting logs S feet long, with the 
swinging iron crane from which were suspended the kettles of all sizes and 

The bureau was made in 1S06, and remains in its appointed place. Grand- 
father's clock, with its dials of moon and month plate, stands ,in the dining- 
room on a base-board which was placed there at the time of the construction 
of the house, and is still doing duty with its two weights of 16 pounds each 
and catgut strings. The original cost was seventy-five dollars. 

At this old homestead many interesting customs were inaugurated. The 
first apple-butter made west of the mountains was made in 1S05. and was 
boiled in the old still-tub at the old Still House, and stirred with a split broom. 

On this farm under the sheltering arms of two huge oak trees, near to 
where the count}- road now crosses, was the acknowledged rendezvous for the 
pioneer residents of this section on Sundays where the preaching of the old- 
time Covenanter was done, and where the assembling was always conditional. 

If, in the early morn, the hoot of the owl was heard, and repeated at in- 
tervals after the early morning had past till near church time, it meant, 
"Indians are prowling around — there will be no services — stand by your 
homes till next Sunday." 

The rifie was to the pioneer of more use than his pocket-book, and the 
old rifle which Squire John acquired soon after his advent in America (still 
owned by Alexander Milligan) was the mainstay of his family. 

Some Ixcideni-s ix the Life of John Milligan, Esq. 

John Milligan was by occupation a miller, and while in Chester County he 
owned a mill and ground corn which was delivered to Washington's Army 
during the winter of 1777, and so long as it was possible to supply him by the 
then only way of transportation. — - a pack-horse. 

The removal from that locality, to " \^'illow Tree Farm.'" consisted of a pack- 
horse which carried all his belongings together with old grandmother Milligan 
and a babe in arms, while the Squire walked, carr}ing his ritie, which, later 
on, has become historic. * 

In the year 1802, Squire John, with his son Alexander and one William 
Pinkerton, left Robbst-own. now called West Newton, with a flat-boat loaded 
with tiour and whiskey, and after weeks of peril and hard work, reached New- 
Orleans, only to discover, on inspecting his cargo, that the fiour had spoiled. 
Pinkerton was discouraged, and determined to walk home. John, however, 
decided that he would reship and take his cargo to Liverpool, England. The 
whiskey he sold, as it had improved during the time ; and the flour was sold to 
starch-makers, bill-posters, and to whoever he could get to use any of it. 
Some was traded for china and various other commodities. 

Tlien visiting his old home, he induced his brother, afterwards the Rev. 
James, to accompany him. After reaching Philadelphia with the aggre- 
gation of china, etc., which has been handed down as heirlooms, they walked 
the 350 miles to their home on the Sewickley. 


John Milligan, Esq., was appointed Justice of Peace for \\'estmoreland 
County, which at that time embraced all of the country west of the Alleghany 
Mountains. This appointment was made by Gov. Thomas Mifflin, soon after 
his inauguration, which occurred Dec. 21. 1790, he being the hrst Governor of 
Pennsylvania under the Constitution of 1790. Squire John served in the 
capacity of Justice until his death. His reputation for uniting couples in the 
bonds of matrimony spread rapidly over the community — the older forms of 
wedlock as ministered by the divines of that day being tedious — being 
more pleasing to the young on account of its brevity. 

Many incidents relating to the vows taken in Squire John's ottice are re- 
lated by tradition. One is of especial interest. During the midnight hours 
after retiring, it necessitated a hurried service to avoid paternal anger which was 
also after the fleeing youngsters. When notified of the fact of the waiting of 
an anxious couple, he sat up in bed and asked if they were of adult age ; 
and finding it to be true, had them brought in and married them without rising. 

2. Thomas Milligan- (1), second son of John^ (1), b. at Meadowhead Farm, 
Ayrshire, Scot., in 1783, and d. in 1S03. 

3. Rev. James Milligan, D.D.- (1), third son of John^ (1), was born at the 
Meadowhead Farm, three miles north of Dalmellington, and half a mile east 
of the outlet of Loch Doon, Aug. 7, 17S5, and there lived with his mother and 
brothers until his eighteenth birthday. He had attended the academy at Ayr, 
and made good progress in his studies until a sad event weaned him from his 
native country. A fellow-student and companion, old enough to do military 
duty, had failed to remove some flour from his coat-sleeve when hastily sum- 
moned from the mess-room for review ; for this offence the reviewing officer 
ordered him to be beaten with the paddle, and under the intiiction he died. 
James Milligan then resolved that he would never bear arms under King 
George, and at once made preparation for coming to America. His brother 
John having just then been home on a visit. James sailed with him from Liver- 
pool, Oct. 28, 1S02, in the ship " Mavina " of Greenock, bound for Philadelphia. 
After a stormy passage of sixty-two days, the vessel put into New York in dis- 
tress. After taking in supplies of food and water, the ship was again delayed 
by ice in the Delaware River, prolonging the voyage to nearly three months. 

Reaching Sewickley Township. Pa., he worked for his brother John on 
his farm till the end of July, 1S04, when he went to Jefferson College at Cannons- 
burg, Pa., to pursue studies for the ministry in the Reformed Presbyterian 
Church. He had joined the Established Church in Dalmellington, where his 
mother belonged and where he was baptized. His brother John, and his 
family, were members of the Associate Reformed Church, but James deter- 
mined to unite with the Reformed Presbyterians, chiefly because of their con- 
sistent opposition to slavery and their insistence on a Christian administration 
of government. 

He graduated from college as an honor man in i8og; studied medicine 
with Dr. Rush and received a medical diploma from him ; studied theology at 
the same time under Dr. Samuel B. W'ylie, president of the University of 
Pennsylvania, in the city of Philadelphia, and was licensed to preach the gos- 
pel on April 4, 1811. He was ordained and installed pastor of the Goldenham 
Reformed Presbyterian Congregation, in Orange Co., X. J., June 10, 1812. 
After a five years' pastorate here, he settled in Ryegate, V't., where he con- 


tinued from the fall of 1S17 till 1S3Q ; then was pastor in New Alexandria, Pa., 
from 1839 to 1S4S, and in Bethel. 111., from 184S till 1S55, when on account of 
the infirmities of age he resigned his charge and retired from active pastoral 
work, yet continued to preach and lecture as he had opportunity, and preached 
the day before he died in Birmingham, Mich., when visiting his son James. 

During his collegiate and theological studies he supported himself by teach- 
ing. He was for several years principal of Greensburg Academy, in West- 
moreland, Pa., and afterwards taught a Jewish school in Philadelphia. He 
also served as Latin tutor in the I'niversity of Pennsylvania. The degree of 
D.D. was conferred upon him by Muskingum College in 184S. 

He published a volume on ••Infant- Baptism,'' a narrative of the " Seces- 
sion Controversy," and a •' View of Christian Principles and Practices,'' besides 
several sermons. 

To the close of his life he was an earnest missionar\-, ardent Abolitionist, 
and consistent teetotaler. Wherever he went he preached Christ, liberty, and 
temperance. He organized anti-slavery and temperance societies in Vermont 
as early as 1820, and was often mobbed in his lecture tours. 

He was a man of stalwart frame, being si.x feet in height, and weighed from 
225 to 250 pounds. A fine classical scholar and a popular preacher, he had 
great infiuence in the communities where he labored and in his denomination. 
He was chairman of the Board of Superintendents of the R. P. Theological 
Seminary in Allegheny, Pa., from 1S42 to 1850. 

On ^lay 15, iS2o,he married Mary Trumbull, daughter of Robert and Lucy 
(Babcock) Trumbull.* at the home of the bride's parents in East Craftsbury, 
Vt. These had six children, of whom presently. Mrs. Mary, born in July 
1790, died at New Alexandria. Pa.. May 20, 1856. Dr. Milligan died at Bir- 
mingham, Mich., Jan. 2, 1862. They were buried in the cemetery at New 
Alexandria, Pa.

He was of gigantic build, being 6 feet in his stockings ; straight as an 
arrow ; of unusual cool and equable disposition : a strict Covenanter ; and 
who, for 72 years, was never absent from the Communion Service, nor from 
the spring and fall elections ; Whig and Republican in his politics. He was 
athletic and recognized as the chieftain in all the wrestling bouts in the com- 
munity. His voice was like thunder and would reverberate from his home 
along the Big Sewickley from hill to hill. And such occasions as calling his 
hogs, the people knew of his whereabouts. It was not unusual for him to 
walk to Pittsburg and back in a day — a distance of 60 miles round trip. He 
was an expert with the rifle, and after 80 years of age would go out squirrel 
hunting, invariably coming home wiih a clever number, all shot through the 

When 8 years of age he did his first errand, which was to accompany a 
party who was moving to Cochranton. Crawford Co., a distance of more than 
150 miles, riding a horse which Squire John saw fit to present to his daughter, 
Jane Nelson, and carrying on the horse a pair of geese in a long sack which 
was perforated to allow their heads to extend out into the world around. 
He made the trip successfully, and the goose industry began to flourish in 
Cochranton. He returned in the fall to his home, and when the brick-mak- 
ing industry began at the old homestead, he off-bore all the bricks that were 
made to build the house. 

After his marriage they went to housekeeping in West Ne^\■ton. He being 
a carpenter and cabinet maker and on account of his superior workmanship 
soon became the favorite cofiin maker, and as long as it was the custom to 
have coffins made to order, he controlled that trade in the vicinity. He built 
himself a frame house and bam, both of which are still standing, on a tract of 
land which Squire John had purchased from the Sutzenheiser heirs which 
adjoined the original tract. The house and barn were built on a tract of land 
no acres in extent. Eleven children. See 4th generation.

He graduated from the Western Uni\ersity of Pennsylvania in 1843 ; 
studied theology in the Reformed Presbyterian Seminary, at Allegheny, Pa. ; 
was licensed to preach Apr. 14, 1847, and was ordained as his father's sue- 









cesser in New Alexandria, Pa., Nov. 24, 184S. After a five years' pastorate 
he was called to the 3d Philadelphia Congregation, and two years after was 
recalled to his old charge, where his second pastorate continued eleven years. 
Then, for eighteen years, he was pastor of the Pittsburg Congregation until 
his death May 7, 1885. He was an eloquent preacher, and was much sought 
after to lecture on slavery and intemperance. He was specially prominent in 
the national reform movement, seeking the religious amendment of the Consti- 
tution of the United States, and labored indefatigably in this cause and in 
behalf of the education and evangelization of the Southern Freedmen. In the 
latter work he had from Secretary Stanton a pass, which few obtained, to go 
through the lines of our armies whenever and wherever he pleased. He 
received the degree of D.D. from Washington and Jefferson College in 1872.

In his early manhood, he learned the trade of millwright, and assisted in 
building several mills in Stwickley Township. He received a severe injury

lodged, which injury incapacitated him from the active work of his calling.

servative in his methods of business, and in his daily life a peaceable and law- 
abiding citir:en ; a Republican in principle, and always took an active interest 


in local and national politics ; never sought office, and devoted his time and 
energies to the general improvement of the community in which he lives. He 
is a communicant of the United Brethren Church, having been a member of 
the same since early manhood. He was noted for his courage and physical 
endurance, his diplomacy and ability as an arbiter to settle the many disputes 
in the community without going to law or resorting to force. He has been 
temperate throughout his life. Four children. See 5th generation.

Charles Milliken^ (1), whose parents" names are not known, came from the 
Province of Connau^ht, Ireland, with a maiden sister named Jennie, to \'ir- 
ginia about the middle of the 17th centur}- and settled near the present town 
of Stanford. He married Ann Hariuson. and before the breaking out of 
the Revolution removed to Orange or Chatham County, North Carohna. 
Tradition is again at fault. It has been assumed for many years by the recog- 
nized authority on the history of this family that it was one Robert Milliken 
who came from Ireland to Virginia, but it has been clearly proven by docu- 
ments found in the archives of Orange and Chatham Counties in North Caro- 
lina that no such person left his '' footprints on the sands of time " in that 
state. It was Charles Milliken who was progenitor of this family, as a perusal 
of the subjoined documents will show. 

Charles Milliken's Indenture. 

This indenture made the fifth day of October in the year of our Lord One 
Thousand Seven Hundred and Sixty-nine, between James George and Judith 
George of the County of Orange and Province of North Carolina of the one

in presence of us — 

John Stewart, Joseph Fooshee, 

Chatham County, Aug. 8, 1772. 

The foregoing instrument shows that this Charles Milliken — MiUigan in 
this instance was an error in spelling by the person who formulated the deed — 
had purchased his land as early as 1769 and had cleared his plantation and 
established his residence there, but did not get his title until 1772, three years 
afterwards. This plantation was evidently in Orange County at the time of 
his settlement, but in Chatham County through some changes of boundary, 
when his deed was recorded. 

Here Charles Milliken established his home, became a wealthy planter 
and slaveholder ; here he had born to him five sons and a daughter, and here 
he and his good wife went down to death. Four of the sons raised families in 
Orange and Chatham Counties, but their descendants mostly removed to Ken- 
tucky, Tennessee. Louisiana, and Texas, and became the progenitors of a 
numerous posterity noted for their intelligence, force of character and moral 
worth. Indeed, there are but few families that can produce record of so many 
members who have been such successful pioneers and state-builders, and as 
fully represented by three or four generations of conservative solid business 
men and scholars as have cast a halo around this family name. Full of energy 
and industry, far-seeing and prompt to seize upon opponunities, they have been 
leading spirits in the communities where they domiciled. In the learned pro- 
fessions their name was conspicuous. 

The compiler has found some evidences of relationship between this and 
other branches of the family early settled in North Carolina where they asso- 
ciated as neighbors. Much that would be desirable concerning the family 
history must be left under shadowy obscurity of vague tradition and the uncer- 
tainty of enfeebled memories. 

The sons of Charles Milliken were named, Robert. James, George, Charles, 
and Quintin.

1. Robert Milliken- (1), eldest son of Charles^ (1), was b. in Virginia as early 
as 1760. and removed with his parents to Orange Co., N. C, before the Revo- 
lution. He is supposed to have lived on the homestead. His will, made Sept. 
29, 1813, and probated at the Xoveniber terin of court that year, shows us 
about the time of his death. To his wife, whose name was Jane, he gave one- 
half of his plantation and one-third of his w/7/ during her life; to his ?.nn /o/in, 
50 acres of land; to his son Charles. 5 shillings; to his %on Jesse, 100 dollars; 
to his son Robert, one-half of his plantation and half of his mill after the death 
of his mother ; to his son William, one-half of the plantation and half of the 
mill after the mother's death. His wife, Jane Milliken, and sons Robert and 
William, were appointed executors. Witnesses were Joel Strong and William 
Moore. No description of his lands. The names of the sons — Robert, John, 
Charles, Jesse and William — correspond with the family tradition, but the 
daughter is not mentioned in the will and probably predeceased her father. 
See 3d generation. 

2. James Milliken- (1), second son of Charles' CI), probably b. in Virginia, 
settled in Orange Co., N. C, where he raised his family. He was a planter 
and slaveholder. Made his will Sept. 9, 1805, and it was probated at the 


February term of court following. His death occurred between the two dates. 
His wife Rachel and son Jesse named as executors. He gave his eldest son, 
James, loo acres of land; to wife 500 acres of land during widowhood or life; 
to his son Elias 250 acres, and 'to his son George 250 acres. \\'itnesses of 
will. William Moore and William Roberts. Xo description of the estate. His 
wife's full maiden name was Rachel Kelly. There were several daughters 
not mentioned in the will. See 3d generation. 

3. Charles Milliken- (2), son of Charles' (1), b. in Virginia, was brought up 
in Orange or Chatham Co., X. C. But little has been learned concerning this 
man. One tradition says he died in Jackson Co.. Mo. He was interested in 
Kentucky when the tide of migration to that country began to rise, as proved 
by the public records. On April 25th, iSii. there was surveyed for Charles 
Milliken assignee of Jesse Morrow, the assignee of L. H. Cartright. assignee 
of Justice Cartright, assignee of James Gallispie, 100 acres of land on the 
waters of Red River, by virtue of an entry on part of a Livingstone County 
Court Certificate Xo. 12 10 (giving plat and boundary). Also surveyed for 
Charles Milliken, assignee of Presley X. O'Bannon, 40 acres of land on the 
waters of Red River in Logan Co., Ky., of date July 22, iSiS, on part of a 
Kentucky Land Office warrant. X'o. 24-32, granted to said O'Bannon for 
50 acres. Also 10 acres surveyed to Charles Milliken, assignee of Presley 
O'Bannon, July 2S. iSiS, on waters of Red River, same warrant first mentioned. 
As evidence that none of these lands were patented to Charles Milliken is the 
fact that no lands were conveyed by him, and it is probable that the lands 
were patented to George Milliken, his brother, who we know settled on 
Red River in Logan Co.. Ky. The late Erastus Milliken of Pleasant Point, 
Tex., said Charles Milliken died in Missouri, and left issue, but we have not 
found any trace of such. 

4. George Milliken- (1), son of Charles* (1), b. in Virginia, was carried by his 
parents to Orange Co., X. C, when young; m. Agness West.* who was b. 
May 26, 1762, in Louisa Co., \'a., and is said to have settled first in Buncombe 
Co.,'N. C. He removed to Guilford Co., near Guilford C. H., X. C, where 
he remained until their removal to Logan Co., Ky., in 1804 or 1805. The 
records show that he acquired by purchase from Jesse McComb in 1S09, one 
hundred seventy-three acres of land on Red River. He made his will in Logan 
Co., Ky., Dec. i, 1812, which was probated May 17, 1S13. He devised for 
life unto his wife Agness his plantation to be transmitted after her death to 
his son George Milliken, Jr. That his estate comprised more land than was 

* The West Family. The grandmother of .Agness was an English lady belonging to a 
family of wealth and rank. Here is a bit of romance. She had a lover who was objection- 
able to her father because below her in family connections, or v.- as not born with the '"golden 
spoon" in his mouth. He was sent into the army or carried off by a pressgang and seen no 
more. She wrote many letters trying to find him, and, finally, ran away and came to Xew 
York in her search. Her money failing, .she found employment in a hotel. A young mer- 
chant from Virginia saw her, admired her refined appearance, made love to her. and. learning 
her history, married her and took her to his Virginian home. After the death ot her father 
she got her portion of the estate. 

Agness West had a brother Leonard. Their parents died in \'irginia when they were 
small children, and ihey were brought uj) by an aunt. Both came to Iventucky. Leonard 
West married, settled in Simpson County, and raised a hirg'- familv. The sons were Ames, 
Fieldini^ -Siwl /antes. There were five daughters, William Milliken's wife being one of them. 
James Milliken married another. Dr. Jesse MiLliken's wife was also maiden-named West. 


purchased of McComb in 1S09. is proved by the fact that his son George 
conveved to John Boyd by sale in 1S25. two hundred and twelve acres on 
Red River, reciting in the deed that this was the same tract devised to him by 
his father, deceased, and that the survey to the same was made in the name 
of Goodnight, assignee of Rollins. His sons bought and sold several tracts 
of land on Red Ri\er. 

William Crewdson, Esq., of Auburn, Ky., who spent much of his youth in 
the home of his grandmother, Agness (West) Milliken, informed the compiler 
of this volume that she often told him that she was born in Virginia near the 
North Carolina line ; that she was married when only sixteen years of age ; 
that she first settled in Buncombe Co., N. C. and afterwards removed to Guil- 
ford Co., X. C. Her eldest child. James, was born only eighteen months 
before the surrender of Cornwallis at Vorktown. She heard the guns of the 
battle at Guilford Court House, and that night her house was hlled with 
wounded soldiers for her to care for. 

Their home, after their removal to Kentucky, was near Adainille in 
Logan Co. It was an excellent plantation coniprising some of the richest 
lands in the state. Their first house was of logs, but it was afterwards 
weather-boarded. Many slaves were kept and well provided for. After the 
plantation was sold, Mrs. ^Milliken went to Henry Co., Tenn., and spent her 
last days with her son Amos. She d. May 6. 1S4S, aged S6 years. She was 
the owner of a large, old-fashioned Bible which she prized highly and from 
which she read much: this contained the family record and is still preserved 
by her descendants. There were twelve children. See 3d generation. 
5! Quintin Milliken- (1), son of Charles' (1), settled on a plantation in 
Chatham Co., X. C, where he was m. and raised his family. His father 
made his will May 12, 17S5, and bequeathed to Quintin the lands on which 
he then lived, and' a young horse named " Snip." This land was to remain 
undivided and an equal share held by son '' Charlie." Quintin ^Milliken made 
his will July 3, 1S16, and as his wife was not mentioned, she was probably 
deceased. He d. Aug. 10, 1816. He and his wife were buried on the plan- 
tation near the house, and their graves, only marked by rude, uninscribed 
stones, are now surrounded by a growth of large trees. An old Bible con- 
taining the family record was destroyed many years ago by lire. His children 
were named /esse, Charles, Spencer, Sarah, Mahala and Jenny. See 3d 

5. Jenny Milliken- d), only daughter of Charles' (1), b. in Virginia, was m. 
to Stewart. Her father in his will (which see) gave her " twelve pounds 
current money." She had two ("perhaps more) children named as follows : 

I. Quintin Stewart, to whom his grandfather, in his will, May 12, 
1785, gave "a negro girl named Ezie."' 

II. Rachel Stewart, to whom her grandfather, in his will, May 12, 
1785, gave " a cow and calf."

The Milliken Homestead. 

There were 170 acres in the tract of land owned by Quintin Milliken, 
originally, but he increased his territory until he owned 750 acres. He built 
his log-house near a spring about one-fourth of a mile from the present resi- 
dence of his grandson on the same plantation. The old stable was on a 
small stream that issued from the spring. 

After the death of Quintin his son Jesse built a new house nearer the public 
road ; this was dehtro}-ed by fire. Another house was erected where the present 
garden is cultivated, and in excavating for the foundation of an arbor, John R. 
Milliken, the present proprietor, found the old cellar. This third plantation 
house was built of hewed logs but afterwards weather-boarded and enlarged. 
The present proprietor has added a second story, and again enlarged the 


house upon the ground, and added to its architectural appearance by two 
piazzas. A chimnev at each end is provided with fireplaces above and below 
stairs. The old kitchen was detached and some distance from the dwelling, 
as was customary on all plantations during slave days, and the food cooked 
there was carried to the dining-room by the servants. This building and the 
old smoke-house still remain. The kitchen is built of hewed timber, is eighteen 
by twenty feet on the ground, and has a chimney at one end in which there 
is a fireplace eight feet wide and five feet in height. The building is now- 
used for a wash-house. The barns and stables were built a considerable 
distance from the house for fear of fire. 

There are two remarkable trees in front of the mansion. One, a white oak, 
is twenty-one feet in circumference, and has branches that extend seventy feet 
at right angles from its trunk. The other, a walnut, has two hearts. A negro 
named " Ben" planted this. He found two small, tender saplings and twisted 
them spirally ; they grew, united their trunks, and to-day the large, handsome 
tree shows no indication of its original forms. 

The buildings are beautifully situated on the public road, thirt)'-five miles 
from Raleigh, the state capital, and from Pittsboro, the county seat, three 

Jesse Milliken held forty slaves, the most of them purchased, or raised on 
his plantation. They occupied seven cabins near the dwelling; these were 
small, cheaply built log-houses, with large fireplaces, and very warm and

^biri) 6cncration. 


1. John Milliken^ (1). eldest son of Robert- (2). b. in Orange Co., X. C, was 
mentioned in his father's will as the legatee of fifty acres of land. He studied 
surveving when a young man. and going to Kentucky with others of the family 
found employment under the State government, and was rewarded by a grant 
of land in Louisiana, where he cleared a large and valuable plantation, which 
was called " Milliken's Bend," it being on a loop of the Mississippi River. 
He owned many sla\es, and acquired wealth. This locality became widely 
known during the Civil War in consequence of a battle fought there, and is 
now historic. The stately Milliken mansion was burned down and many 
valuable family documents destroyed. John Milliken m. the widow of Dr. 
Elliott, nee Devereux, by whom he had one daughter, named Mary-Jane, who 
became the wife of Dr. I. P. Parker, about the year 1828, and she had two 
sons, who are now the representatives of this Milliken family. Mr. ^lilliken 
was a man of great determination and singleness of purpose ; calculating, 
sagacious, energetic and successful in his agricultural and commercial ven- 
tures. The date of his death has not been found, the Parkers having 
declined to communicate information. 

2. Dr. Jesse Milliken^ (1), second son of Robert- (2), b. in Orange Co., N. C, 
and raised his family there. His wife was Annie West, a daughter of Wil- 
liam West, of an old Virginian family. About the year 18 17 he removed to 
Calloway Co., Ky., and in 1825 purchased a farm in Simpson Co., where he 
established a permanent home. He was for many years a well-known and 
popular practising physician in Calloway and Simpson Counties, often 
riding twenty and thirty miles on horseback, carrying his medicines in saddle- 
bags, to visit his patients, and absent from home days and nights. He was a 
tvpical doctor of the old school, who was invested with aJl the pluck so vividly 
represented by Ian Maclaren in William MacClure the old Scottish practi- 
tioner. Dr. Alilliken was a man of strong convictions, and was ver}- out- 
spoken in his intercourse with his fellow-men. He d. at his home in Simpson 
Co., Ky., in 1834, and his widow d. in 1848. They were interred on the farm. 
For children's names, see 4th generation. 

3. William Milliken^ (1), third son of Robert- (2). b. in Orange Co., N. C, 
July 4, 1792; m. Nancy Ramsey, who was b. in Chatham Co., N. C, Nov. 
14, 1795. He settled in Paducah. Ky.. about 1817, where he owned and 
carried on a plantation. He was killed by a vicious horse when ploughing — 
date unknown — and left a large family for his wife, who was a woman of 
great energy, prudence, and good judgment, to care for; and she acquitted 
herself of her responsibility with true heroism and faithfulness. She v.-as tall, 
with black hair and eyes, and stamped many mental and physical character- 
istics upon her children. She d. Aug. 10, 1877. There were nine children. 
See 4th generation. 

4. Charles Milliken^ (2), fourth son of Robert- (2), b. in Orange Co., N. C, 
was mentioned in his father's will and received only five shillings. Find no 
record of this man in land documents. Hon. Charles W. Milliken, of Frank- 
lin, Ky., says his uncle of this name d. in Jackson Co., Mo., but diligent 
search and newspaper inquiry have been fruitless of results. There are 


iSIillikens in and about Kansas City. Mo., who may be his descendants. 
They have not replied to inquiries addressed to them. One Charles Milliken 
is a passenger conductor. 

5- Robert Milliken^ (2V fifth son of Robert- (2). b. in Orange Co., X. C, 
was nientioned in his father's will of date Sept. 29. 1813, in which he was given 
one-half of the plantation and one-half of the mill after his mother's decease. 
He m., ^lay 5, 1S09, Christi.^n' Turner. Was one of the executors of his 
father's will. Some members of this family believe that this man remained on 
the homestead and d. issueless. 

6. Harbison Milliken^ (1), youngest son of Robert- (2). b. in Orange Co., X. C, 
was a legatee under his father's will to one hundred dollars to be paid by his 
brother Robert. Xo other information. 


1. James Milliken-'' (2), eldest son of George^ (1). b. in 1779, eighteen 
months before the surrender of Lord Cornwallis at Vorktown. He m. Elsie 
West, daughter of \Villiam West, and sister of Ann West, wife of Dr. Jesse 
Milliken, in 1S05. about the time of the removal of the family to Kentucky. 
He settled about tive miles west of Franklin, in Simpson Co. The house on 
his plantation was built of timber, but afterwards weather-boarded and better 
finished; it was large and roomy, and built more for comfort and convenience 
than for any external beauty. The mansion was surrounded by a spacious 
lawn, whereon were groves of fine old forest trees. Some locust trees had 
been planted near the dwelling because of their iiowers and fragrance. This 
plantation was situated on the '■' Springfield road " between Franklin, Ky.. and 
the Tennessee state line. The land was nearly level and ver}- productive. 
The slave quarters were nearly one hundred yards back of the mansion. 

Mr. Milliken is described as a small man with ver)- kind and gentle man- 
ners, who was loved and venerated by all of his neighbors. He was a ven,- 
devout Christian man, but not the kind "so straight they leaned backward." 
He had a kind word and genuine smile and handshake for all. Was espe- 
cially fond of children, and his great kindliness is remembered by his de- 
scendants. He d. Mar. 6, 1863, aged 84. 

Mrs. Milliken was a tall, dignilied old lady with strongly marked face; a 
woman of great firmness of character with a high sense of right and wrong, 
but was kind and charitable to her neighbors. She was the true pioneer wife, 
and mother of the class that made the history of a state. There were four 
children that lived to maturit}', of whom with fourth generation. 

2. William Milliken^ (2), second son of George- ( 1), b. in Orange or Guilford 
Co., X. C, in Apr., 17S5 ; m. Aug. 10, 1808, Polly West, his first cousin, and 
settled in the southern part of Simpson Co., Ky., on Spring Creek and near 
the Sulphur Springs meeting-house, say eight miles from Franklin, Ky. His 
plantation consisted of about 500 acres, and was one of the best in Southern 
Kentucky. His mansion was of brick, large and imposing. He owned about 
25 slaves. Mr. Milliken was six feet two inches in height, large, rawboned, 
and of great muscular strength. He was a leading citizen in Simpson County, 
and his character above reproach. His companion was of dark complexion. 
She was b. Dec. 28, 1791, and d. Mar. 6, 1.S51. He d. on the farm where he 
first settled, Dec. 7, 1847, aged 62 years and 9 months. Eleven children, of 
whom with fourth generation. 


3. Leonard Hugh Milliken^ (1\ third son of George- (1). b. near Guilford Court 
House, Guilford Co., X.C., about 1793, settled in CallowayCo.. 1830. He 
was a volunteer under Gen. Andrew Jackson at the battle of New Orleans. His 
plantation in Kentucky was disposed of in 1836. and with his family he removed 
to an exposed frontier in Texas. Diligent research by correspondence, advertising 
in newspapers, and examination of the public records, has failed to disclose 
the dwelling-place of the descendants of this Hugh Milliken. He evidently 
discarded his first name, as it does not appear on record in any entry 
■ found. The following was procured from the Land Commissioner at 
Austin, Tex. 

" There was an unconditional headright certificate issued to Hugh ISIillikin 
for 640 acres of land by the Board of Land Commissioners of Sabine Co., 
Tex., in 1841 by virtue of his conditional certificate issued by the same board 
in 183S, and the same located in two surveys in Sabine County, but neither 
have been patented account of errors in field notes. There are also transfers 
on file of said certificate from Henry Millikin to Charles Peck, executed in 
Sabine County in 1S40, and from Charles Peck to Will Hinckley, also executed 
in Sabine Countv in 1S41. The title to said land has therefore passed from 
Hugh Millikin. ' 

" An unconditional certificate was also issued to Hugh Millikin by the Board 
of Land Commissioners of Houston County for 12S0 acres of land in 1848, 
by virtue of his conditional issued by the Board of Red River Count}- in 1838, 
and located in Rusk County, and was patented to Hugh Millikin, Oct. 19, 
1849, and there are no transfers of this certificate on file in this oftice. and as 
far as disclosed by the records here still remains in Hugh Millikin ; and to 
ascertain if the land has been conveyed since the patent issued, you will have 
to consult the records of Rusk Co., at Henderson, Texas, or if you will com- 
municate with Hon. R. ^L Love, Comptroller at this place, he would doubt- 
less advise you by whom the taxes on said land are paid, and in that way you 
might trace the owner or claimant. There were evidently two persons by the 
name of Hugh Millikin, the one receiving the 12S0 acres being a married man, 
or head of a family, and the other a single man, as two headright certificates 
could not have been issued to the same person. Whether you can connect 
this man with Leonard Hugh Millikin. will be a matter to be determined out- 
side of this department. I would suggest also that you examine the records 
of Sabine, Red River, and Houston Counties for information that might lead to 
further identification of said parties." 

At Henderson, Tex., the following record of transfer was found: 

" From the state of Texas to Hugh Miiliken, i 2S0 acres of land ; from-Hugh 
Milliken. and wife to A. C. Whately. 12S0 acres of land; from A. C. Whately 
to Henry A. Reynolds, 12S0 acres of land: and from Henry A. Reynolds to 
B. C. Oberthier, 1280 acres of land." 

Hugh Milliken was married and had a large family, some of his children 
grown to maturity before his removal to Texas, but the maiden name of his 
wife is not remembered. His relatives in Kentucky say that he died about 
two years after his settlement in Texas. They also report that his sons were 
men of prominence. There was another Hugh Milliken (or Millican) whose 
name appears in the 'IV-xa^ archi\es. and the two were often confounded. 
All that is known of this man, just mentioned, will be found in another section 
of. this book. 


The following very unsatisfactory and meagre record is all we could find 
relating to the children of Hugh Milliken. 

I. Mahala Millikex, his daughter, was m. to Samuel Wright, and lived 
in Texas. Her husband was killed and his body burned in his house 
by Indians ; but she escaped through a back window, and carrying her 
babe made her way through the wilderness twenty miles to her father's 
home. B. C. Oberthier, Esq., of Henderson, Tex., says Mahalay's 
daughter was m. to McDonald, and was an aunt to his wife. 
II. George Milliken. son of Hugh, b. in Kentucky, removed with the 

family to Texas. 
III. Hexrv Millikex, son of Hugh, b. in Kentucky, went to Texas, and 
transferred his father's land certificate to Charles Peck in 1840.. 
,4. Amos Milliken^ (1), fourth son of George- (1), was b. near Guilford Court 
House. N. C, Mar. 10, 1795, and was nine years of age when his parents 
moved to Simpson Co., Ky. He m. Elizabeth Towxsexd (b. Mar. 11, 
1796; d. Jan. 17, 187s) in Logan Co., Ky., July 27, 1815, and settled on 
lands bequeathed by his father in his will of date 1S12. He sold out and 
removed to Henr}- Co., Tenn., in iSiS. His new land — a tract consisting 
of 200 acres — was on the head waters of the north fork of the Obion River, 
some seven miles north of Paris. At this time there were but few white 
families living in that region. Some old, deserted wigwams remained to 
mark the homes and hunting-ground of the red man. His land cost him 12^ 
cents per acre. ^Vhile clearing his farm, the family subsisted largely upon 
the game and fish which abounded in the forest and streams. Venison and 
wild turkeys could be had at any time when wanted. Black bears carried off 
the pigs, and Amos brought them down with his rifle and supplied his table 
from their flesh. The virgin soil produced a variety of berries, and the family 
often feasted on strawberries and wild honey. Some panthers and wolves 
could be heard by night in the surrounding forests. 

The Milliken home was t\-pical of the frontier, and nearly even-thing for 
family use was produced on the farm. Wool and cotton were raised and 
made into cloth for family wear. Hides were tanned and worked into har- 
ness and footwear. Much ingenuity and skill was exhibited by the members 
of the household in the manufacture of the home-made wares. By industry, 
frugality, and judicious management, Mr. Milliken became a prosperous 
farmer. He was self-reliant and capable of turning his hand to almost any 
mechanical work. Pie introduced and operated the tirst threshing mill in that 
country. Previously all grain was beaten out with the Hail. His threshing 
machine was described as of " Groundhog " style and crudely constructed, but it 
was practical, and the precursor of something better. He also built a saw- 
mill on the stream running by the plantation which had one of the first circu- 
lar saws ever used in Henry County. 

Mr. Milliken d. Nov. 21, 1856, near Spring Hill, Henr\- Co., Tenn., and 
his widow lived with her son George for nearly twenty years, dying in 1875. 
She was possessed of a remarkable memory, and in advanced life entertained 
her grandchildren with stories of early life in Kentucky, and homemaking in 
Tennessee. There were many caves and subterranean streams in Simpson 
County. At one time the pet goose fell into the well and disappeared. It 
was given up for lost, but a few hours later emerged from a " sink hole " at 
the back of the farm and came waddling home. Handkerchiefs and other 


light articles dropped into another well would be found in a large sprin"^ 
nearl}- a mile away. She told of the excitement that prevailed and how 
worried the inhabitants were about their early Kentucky home, when houses 
were violently shaken and crockery rattled on the dresser ; when chimneys 
cracked and fell by the trembling of tl:e earth : and with the slow mediums of com- 
munication it was a long time before they heard that the cause of the phe- 
nomena was the sinking of a considerable tract in Obion Co., Tenn., by which 
Reelfoot Lake was formed. 

The country where the Milliken family settled was not only the hunting- 
ground of Indians, but once the liome of the mound builders. There were 
two circular elevations on the plantation extending to twenty-live feet in height 
above the level of the adjacent land. Upon the top of one mound was a 
level plateau of sufficient area for a dwelling and small yard occupied bv a 
white family. From near the base of the larger mound are two deep ditches 
or artificial ravines leading to the Little Obion nearby. Some interesting 
pieces of ancient pottery and tiint implements were found in the Milliken tields, 
and one article was sold to an Eastern museum for a good sum. Life on the 
plantation was peaceful and pleasant until the beginning of the Civil \\'ar. 
The home was well supplied with the popular magazines and current news- 
papers. Children were entertained by ghost stories told by the old black 
" mammy '' in the slave quarters, while their elders beguiled the evening hours 
around the hearthstone with tales and legends of '-ye olden time '" in Carolina 
and Kentucky. Long before Amos Milliken 's death, the forests had been 
hewed down, and the country he found a wilderness was populous and flour- 
ishing. Churches and schools had been built, manufactures introduced, mer- 
chandising established, and the advantages of culture and wealth were enjoved 
by many. 

The Millikens were in favor of maintaining the solidarity of the L^nion, 
but when by act of the Legislature Tennessee seceded, they went with the 
majority and fought with valor in the Confederate army. 

Amos and Elizabeth Milliken had two sons, of whom with fourth genera- 

5. George Milliken^ (2), youngest son of George- (1). was b. in Logan Co., 
Ky. He went to Henry Co., Tenn., when a young man and m. Sar.a.h 
MARTrN. Here he erected a tanyard and established himself in business. 
He removed to Wadesboro. Calloway Co., Ky., in 1S33-4. and established tne 
tanning business there. This was then the county seat and gave promise of 
growth, but another town was chosen and Wadesboro decayed. He sold out 
and in 1839 migrated with his family to Red River Co., Tex. He received a 
" headright " grant of land comprising 12S0 acres; the quantity offered to 
induce settlement. Texas was then a Republic. The journey of 600 miles 
was made with horses and required a month. They went via Memphis, 
Tenn., Little Rock, Ark., and the Indian Territory, camping on the road. 
Supplies and household goods were carried. They were constantly in danger 
from Indians and wild animals but reached their destination in safety. Mr. 
Milliken did not long hold his headright-grant, but sold out and built a tan- 
yard on Pecan Bayou, five miles north of Clarksburg, the county seat, where 
he owned 500 acres of land. 

The family submitted to the deprivations and hardships incident to pioneer 
life in a new country. They lived in a log cabin. Family supplies were 



mostly procured by hunting. The woods and prairies then abounded with 
large game such as buftaloes and deers. Wild honey was plentiful. Corn 
was ground in handmills or pounded into hominy : sometimes parched. The 
men wore buckskin breeches and coonskin caps. Women dressed correspond- 
ingly plain. Luxuries were unknown. 

Mr. Milliken d. in 1843, and was buried in the family graveyard of a 
neighboring cotton planter named George Bagby. His family, consisting of 
the widow and tive children, returned to their relatives in Henry Co., Tenn.

Ky., Aug. 15, iSjy, and was carried by his parents to Simpson Co. before he 
was ten years of age. His father having died when he was but a lad, and 
being left motherless when away at school, the family was broken up and the 
three youngest children were homeless. When eighteen he persuaded his 
mother to let him go to Franklin, Ky.. where he remained in school one year. 
He then entered Wirt Academy, a rural institution in Sumner Co., Tenn., and 
was graduated after a three years' course. He returned to Franklin and studied 
law with Beverly L. Clark, and has practised his profession down to date.

He was County Attorney without soliciting the office several years up to 
1862, when by act of the Legislature the courts were suspended, and he re- 
signed. In 1 86 7 he was elected Commonwealth Attorney to represent the 
State's interest in the Fourth Judicial District. This election was to till out 
an unexpired term of one year, and in 1868 he was elected for a full term of 
six years to the same office. He resigned in 1872, to become a candidate for 
Congress and was elected. In 1874 he was again elected and served in the 
43d and 44th Congresses. He refused to be a candidate in 1876, and has 
never since sought for any political preferment. In a communication written 
in the winter of 1902, Mr. Milliken said: •• Though nearly 75 years of age I 
can run as fast for a short distance and jump as far as at any time in my life. 
My voice is strong and clear, and I do a practice in my profession equal to 
any man at our bar." 

Of this " grand old man " of Franklin, Ky., a citizen writes, •' He does not 
look a day older than he did twenty-five years ago ; he is vigorous and active, 
and anything in appearance but an old man.'' 

He was well-informed respecting the early history of his family, and furnished 
much of the data concerning the first generations incorporated into this work. 

His acquaintance is wide, and he holds the high esteem of numerous fellow- 
citizens. A Presbyterian in his church relations, he believes there are sincere 
Christians in all denominations. He has one son, of whom with fifth gen-

uated from medical institutions in Kentucky. He studied medicine at Cumber- 
land University, Tenn., and has engaged in the active practice of his profession 
in Franklin, Simpson Co., Ky., for many years. He represents the mental 
and physical characteristics of this branch of the family ; is a man of strong 
convictions, conservative and forceful. There are two children. See 4th

where some of his children were b. He subsequently read law with Col. J. B. 
Husbands of Paducah. Ky., and was admitted to the bar. He was in practice 
and was county judge for a number of terms, and at the time of his death was 



known as Judge Milliken. He was virtually a self-made man. At the begin- 
ning of the Civil War he joined the Confederacy and entered the army as major 
of a battalion. His family were residing at Mayrield. Ky.. while he was in 
camp a few miles south of that town. He came to his home occasionally, and 
while on a visit was assassinated Nov. iS, 1861, by a political enemy. His 
widow d. at Paducah, Ky., in July, 187 1. There were six children. See 5th 

2. Samuel Ramsey Milliken^ (1), second son of William' (1), b. in Paducah, 
McCracken Co., Ky., June 30, 1817; m. Miss Marv Horn; second, Annie 
Henriktta Campbell and lived for many years at his place of nativity. 
He was owner of three mail lines and steam packets on the Mississippi, 
Cumberland and Tennessee rivers. He removed to Texas in 1S60, stopping 
near Mansheld, Ellis Co., now Johnson Co., but tinally settled at Thorp Springs, 
in Hood Co., Tex. He carried numerous slaves with him. He d. June 28, 
tSS6. His eldest son wrote as follows : 

'' My father was one of the most forceful characters I ever knew. He was 
not only honest and truthful himself, but thought it was his bounden duty to make 
others the same. This naturally made him many enemies. He despised and 
denounced shams on all occasions. He was a great money maker in his 
prime, but entirely too free-hearted with his friends and those who gained his 
confidence. He moved to Texas in i860 for his health, enlisted in the Con- 
federate service the next year. Was chosen Captain of his company, but 
refused to serve, as he claimed that he believed others would make better 
officers. He never offered for office, though he never resided in a county 
where he did not wield a powerful influence for good. To illustrate how he 
was respected for justice and honor, I shall narrate the statement made me 
some years ago, by ^Ir. Bledsoe, an able lawyer of Cleburne, Texas. My 
father did not speak to him. He had a case in the court of my father's 
county, and my father was on the jury, but in going to the jury box he re- 
marked to a juror that it was not worth his while to go up there, as his name 
would be scratched. Mr. Bledsoe overheard it, but to my father's surprise he 
was selected. Mr. Bledsoe said that his client was a stranger in the county, 
but had a just cause of action, while the other party was most influential, and 
had many friends ; that he wanted a controlling spirit on the jur)-, one who 
would do right regardless of the parties ; that he made his principal argument 
to my father, and the result was just as he expected, a verdict in his favor. 
One of the most laudatory, and yet truthful, obituaries I ever read, was that of my 
father, written by a gentleman whom he did not speak to for ten years previ- 
ous to his death. The traits of character which I have just mentioned, were 
so strongly marked, that all admired him for them. But it was in his home 
life, and by the constituents of that home, where he was really understood and 
loved. Stern to rule, but O how just ! He was a born disciplinaire. Often 
have I seen children visiting our home, obey him with pleasure, who ran 
rough shod over their own parents. 

By two wives he had six children named as follows : 
I. Edmonia\ b. in Paducah, Ky., was m. to Andrew J. Brown 
and lives in Dallas, Tex. She has written : '• My grandmother's Bible 
is in my possession : however, it is not the first record of my grand- 
father's family, and is very incomplete. I do not know what became 
of the first records. Grandmother had the care of me the first eight 


years of my life, then we were separated for ten years, mv father bring- 
ing me to Texas in i860. My father took me to visit grandmother 
afterwards, with the understanding that I should prevail on her to return 
with us to Texas, and we left Paducah, Ky., Sept. 8, 1S70. Uncle 
Erastus Milliken came' in November of the same year. Grandmother 
and I were ven,- de\-otedly attached to each other. I have her picture 
and likenesses of her hve sons." Mrs. Brown visited her uncle Erastus 
Milliken at Pleasant Point, Tex., interviewed him, and took notes for 

'•■ this work, but she says : " Our house was burned Mar. 11, 1894, and 

he died the 20th of April following. As I had too many other cares 
on my mind I dropped the whole thing." She did not reply to subse- 
quent inquiries.

Tex., in 1S85. 
III. Robert Campbell Millikex% b. in Johnson Co., Tex.. Jan. 14, 1S61, 
is a lawyer by profession, and was at one time engaged in legal prac- 
tice at Dallas, Tex., but is now in the life-insurance business, located 
at Birmingham, Ala., where he is serving as mayor. The most of the 
time during the last ten years, he has filled the position of Pacific Coast 
Supervisor and Southern Inspector for one of the eastern companies. 
He is truthful, frank, puts on no airs for politeness' sake, pays his debts, 
and claims what is justly due him. 
■ IV, Nannie M. Milliken', b. in Johnson Co., Tex., Nov. 2, 1S62 : was m. 
to S. B. Lancaster of Granbury, Tex. 
V. Dr. Samuel Edwin Millik.en\ b. in Johnson Co.. Tex., Dec. 2, 1866, 
is a distinguished surgeon at Dallas, Tex. He attended the Add-Rann 
College at Thorp Spring, Tex., and graduated at the University of 
Louisville, Ky., Mar. i, 1887. He received a certificate for being one 
among ten standing highest in the graduating class of eighty-six stu- 
dents. Of the two hospital appointments, he was made resident at 
Sts. Mary and Elizabeth Hospital, where he remained one year ; 
thence removed to N. Y. City in Mar.. 18S8. He was assistant physi- 
cian to the N. Y. City Asylum for the Insane ; house surgeon at the 
Hospital for the Ruptured and Crippled for one year ; assistant sur- 
geon afterwards to the same hospital. He was chief of Dr. John A. 
Wyeth's clinic, and lecturer on surgery at the New York Polyclinic 
School and Hospital for three years. He was also editor '' La Revista 
Medico-Quirurgica," which was the Spanish organ of the Pan-American 
Medical Congress. He resided in New York for nine years and 
achieved considerable success. He has written many articles on surgi- 
cal subjects, and invented a hammock apparatus for applying the plaster 
of paris jacket in spinal diseases. He has remarkable mathematical 
knack, having finished calculus in his sixteenth year. He must know 
the reason of every thing he does.

His plantation was three and a half miles from Paducah, Kv., on the Paducah

1830; m. and in Nov., 1S70, removed to Texas. In 1894 he was living at 
Pleasant Point, in Johnson County, but died April 20th of that year. Pie did 
not leave any children. From a letter written by a neighbor I learned that his 
estate was sold by his widow in 1895, and that she had married again and 
gone West. He wrote me in 1894, that Charles Milliken died in ilissouri, 
and that he had three sons, John, Quintin and Joseph, all of whom emigrated 
to Oregon, where the latter acquired wealth. 

8. Ulysses Milliken* (1), a son of William^ (1), was b. in Paducah, Ky., 
Feb. I, 1831 ; m. Mary Amanda McClure, daughter of Alexander and Ariel 
(Webb) McClure, of Woodfords, Ky. She was b. in Missouri, Feb. 22, 1834. 
He began running on a steamboat on the ^lississippi River when only sixteen 
years of age and eventually became a pilot ; this profession he followed 
through life. At the breaking out of the Civil War he entered the Confederate 
service in the navy, and a price was set on his head, dead or alive. At the 
time he joined the navy he was living at Paducah ; then his family removed to 
St. Louis, Mo., where they remained until his death in 1871. He was serving 
as pilot on a gunboat that was blown up on Lake Bourne, and the only one out 
of four whose life was saved. He floated for hours before he was picked up. 
Being a Free Mason he revealed signal of the order to those who captured 
him, and he was humanely treated. He then joined his family completely 
broken down in health, being so seriously scalded that he was blind for 
several months. He then took the oath of allegiance. At another time he was 
on a gunboat captured by the Federal navy, and jumped overboard and swam 
across the river while bullets were falling around him. Fie reached the

in Franklin, Ky., where he was engaged in trade. He held the oftice of Justice 
of the Peace a long time, and during one or two terms was Judge of Simpson

Frankhn, in a large framed house. His lands were rich and valuable, yielding 
abundant harvests. His slaves cultivated the fields, while he, like most of the 
middle-state planters, lived in ease and independence with but slight disposi- 
tion to accumulate property, because he had all he wanted. He was for many 
years a Justice of the Peace for Simpson Co., not I^ecause of profit, but for 
the reason that it gave him prestige and admitted him to official circles on 
many public occasions. His natural talents were of a superior order. In 
personal appearance he was commanding. He was above six feet in height 
and very corpulent. A great student of his Bible, and one of the greatest 
dramatists. It was often said that " Uncle Billy " knew his Bible and 
Shakespeare by heart. His hair was " Haxen "' when in his prime, but became

3. Rev. Leonard H. Milliken* (2), second son of William^ (2), b. in Logan Co., 
Ky. Aug. 21, 1S13; m. ^L\RV Laninia Moodv, daughter of Major Epps and 
Matilda (Johnson) Moody, July S, 1S41. She was b. Dec. 29, 1S23, in 
P^ranklin Co., Ala. He passed his boyhood on the homestead, having only 
such educational advantages as were afforded in country schools. After com- 
pleting an academic course in his native county, he attended the University 
at Nashville, Tenn., from wliich institution he was graduated with honors, 
being thoroughly conversant with the Hebrew, Greek, and Latin languages. 
Nurtured in a home of piety, he made a public profession of religion in early 
youth, was baptized and united with the Baptist Church. 

The all-absorbing desire of his heart was to be fully prepared for his life- 
work — preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. He continued to be a close 
student of his Bible, and throughout his entire life was a man of strong faith 
in God's promises. 

At the age of twenty he was ordained to the ministry, and for fifty years 
held up the banner of the cross, proclaiming the glad tidings of salvation to 
a perishing world. He began to preach at Athens, Ala., where he remained 
until his marriage. His next settlement was in La Grange, Tenn. About 
four years after his marriage he removed to Somerville, Tenn., where he fol- 
lowed his sacred calling and also engaged in teaching, being principal of a 
school in that town. 

In the year 1S51 he moved with his family to Aberdeen, Miss., having 
received a call from the Baptist Church to become their pastor. He remained 
with this society about five years, and it was with reluctance that the flock 
accepted his resignation. 

A call came from a church at Jackson, Miss., in 1857, and he was impelled 
to accept. A cordial welcome awaited him, and soon a strong bond of attach- 
ment existed between pastor and flock. While preaching in that city an 
extensive revival prevailed which resulted in a rich harxcst of souls. He con- 
ducted services twice daily for nearly six weeks, and seemed to be especially 
endowed with power from on High. He remained at Jackson until the break- 
ing out of the war between the North and South, when he returned to Ten- 
nessee and enlisted as Chaplain to the Thirteenth Tennessee Volunteers, com- 
manded by Col. Andrew Jackson Vaughan. He remained with the army, 
faithful to his vocation, often ministering to the wounded and dying on the 
battlefield. At the close of the war he returned to his home in La Grange, 
and resumed the work of teaching, and preaching on the Sabbath in the 


Masonic Hall. A church was greatly needed, and he travelled through differ- 
ent States where he had preached, and raised by subscription 53,000 to for- 
ward the erection of the new house. The editice cost four thousand dollars, 
and was an ornament to the town. A generous lady donated 5 1,000 to liqui- 
date the debt, and the house was duly dedicated. (Jn that occasion Rev. 
Milliken, who was preeminently a man of prayer, expressed profound gratitude 
to his Maker that his efforts had been crowned with success. 

In 187S, during an epidemic of yellow fever, the faithful minister visited the 
sick and dying, not counting his own life dear so that he might comforr the 
afflicted. He subsequently raised funds for building a church at Somerville, 

He united with the Masonic fraternity when about thirty years of age, and 
held the degree of Royal Arch Mason. 

Gifted with a fine voice and melody, nothing afforded him more pleasure 
than singing sacred songs to praise his ^laker. His last work was assisting 
at an ordination. He was soon after seized with pneumonia, and after suffer- 
ing for ten days passed away in triumph. Eight children. See 5th gen-

d. near Benton, Marshall Co., Ky., Dec. 27, 1S74. He bought the watermill 
on the north side of the homestead farm and settled there. He added a grist- 
mill to the water power, and this was widely known as '' Mi'lliken's [Mill," and 
liberally patronized for many years, ^^'hen the war came on, George left the 
mill and farm in care of a few slaves owned by him and his mother, and 
joined the Confederate Army. He was in a hospital at Island Xo. 10, when 
it was captured by Union troops. Being some distance from the regular en- 
campment, word was sent for all to escape who were able. He and a com- 
rade made their way to Reelfoot Lake where that body of water was eight 
miles wide, and with an old hatchet made a raft of logs on which to cross. 
This rude craft was fragile and slow, and night found them in the middle of 
the lake with wet clothing. The weather was chilly, but they found a fisher- 
man's vacated hut on a small island and some matches, and an old kettle in 
which they cooked some dried fruit. After a dreary night they reached the 
mainland the following day and made good their escape, ^fr. Milliken was 
afterwards captured by Federals near Paducah, Ky., and held a prisoner there 
and at Cairo, 111. When released, his health was so much impaired that he 
returned to his home in Tennessee and did not rejoin the army. He d. near

Jesse Milliken lived on Stone's River. Barnes Co., Tenn., but his parentage 
and birthplace are unknown to his descendants. His wife's name does not 
appear. In the absence of any proof to the contrary, I shall assume to say 
that this man was identical with Jesse Milliken mentioned as overseer of the 
will of his father, James Milliken. of Orange Co.. X. Carolina, of date Sept. 9, 
1805. As Elias Milliken. brother of Jesse, son of James, removed to Tennessee 
along with others of the family, and as a son of Elias says he had an uncle 
who settled in that state, it is reasonable to suppose it was the Jesse Milliken 
whose name heads this sketch. He had issue four sons and two daughters. 
His son. Creed Milliken, went early to Texas — as did his kinsmen from Ken- 
tucky — and became a ranchman and stockdealer on the Colorado River, but 
was killed by a wild steer about 1847 ; then the father, old Jesse, went to 
Texas to look after the estate. On his third trip to Texas, he brought his 
wife on horseback, purchased land near Huntsville for a few years, • His sons, 
Albert and John, visited him and induced him to return with them to Tennes- 
see where he probably died. The names of his children, far as known, as fol- 
lows : John, Albert, Austin, Creed, Alary, and Cynthia. 


1. Austin Lee Milliken, or •• Millikien," as he spelt his name, son of Jesse (1), 
was b. Dec. 8, 1S09, probably in Barnes Co., Tenn. He was m. to Ann 
Catherine Waixwright, Sept. 7, 1S36, in Floyd Co., Va. He soon removed 
to Alabama, thence to Tennessee (1S43), and lived near his father. He re- 
moved to Te.xas in 1S47, settled near Huntsville, and d. there Dec. 8, 1855, 
leaving a widow and small children. Mrs. Millikien d. at Huntsville, Tex.,

Nov. 5, 1852 ; m. ^[ay Walton in 1897, and resides in St. Louis, ^lo. He 
was only nine years of age when his father died, and his first experience in 
business was acquired by peddling newspapers, pastry, apples, etc., among the 
soldiers of General Grant's army ; this trade he followed during the Civil War, 
attending school betimes when he had an opportunity. At the age of seven- 
teen he left his school and found employment with his brothers, who kept a 
provision store, for a number of years. He then worked in a flouring mill and 
learned the miller's trade ; then he became the buying and selling agent for 
the milling company. In 1878 he left Kentucky and went on the road for the 
Empire Milling Company of St. Louis ; afterwards went into the grain busi- 
ness for himself, buying and selling grain along the Ohio and Mississippi 
rivers. When the great flood of 18S3 came on the Ohio, he was caught with 
200,000 bushels of corn on the banks, the most of which was lost, and he was 
financially ruined. He then returned to St. Louis heavily in debt. Soon after 
he became a member of the " Comnlercial Exchange,"' entered the brokerage 
business, and by judicious management in speculating he not only succeeded 
in paying his debts, but laid the foundation of his present fortune. He sup- 
ported his widowed mother from the time he was nineteen years of age until 
she passed away in 18 78. and his sister until her marriage.

Capt. Samuel Milliken of Thorp's Springs, Texas. 

The subject of this sketch will be remembered by many old steamboat 
men, twenty-seven years of his life having been spent in steamboatin*'- on 
the Mississippi, Tennessee, Ohio and Columbia rivers, as owner and captain 
of steamers. In 1859, the exposure incident to a life of hardships made 
serious inroads on an original robust constitution and he abandoned steam- 
boating, moved South and settled near Mansfield, Tex., in 1S60, bring- 
ing with him his family and slaves in wagons. At the outbreak of the 
war, although over age, he entered the Confederate army, and of the gallant 
soldier and genial comrade, his old army companions still speak with pride. 
He returned from the war in 1865, to rind his property, consisting princi- 
pally of slaves, gone, but with the energy and indomitable spirit character- 
istic of the man, he moved to Alvarado, Johnson Co., Tex., where he en- 
gaged in the mercantile business until Dec. 187 1, when he moved to Thorp's 
Springs, Hood Co., Tex., at which place he was crippled by unrulv horses 
in 1876, having his hip dislocated. On the twenty-eighth of May last, he 
died, having a few days previously been fatally injured by a runaway team. 
Capt. Milliken was widely known throughout Northwest Texas, and in the 
neighborhood of his old home, Paducah, Ky. He was noted for his great 
individuality and originality. Fearless in the advocacy of his opinions, his 
hatred of shame and detestation of hypocrisy, made his caustic and epi- 
grammatic criticisms maxims among his friends. Open and frank himself, 

he was intolerant of evasion or deception in others. He was independent 
and impulsive, yet charitable and just. Intuitively a discerner of the motives 
of men, yet too kind-hearted to always obey the dictates of his superior 
judgment. He was known no less for his iron will than for his chivalric 
and generous nature. Xo one ever came to his door begging bread and 
went away hungry. He was an humble follower of the great Master in his 
love for little children, the little ones recognizing instinctively in him the 
gentle, guileless heart of a child, a protector, companion and friend. We 
test and analyze his character by the measure of our love for him, and our 
fondness for clinging to the loyal heart, now lying lifeless; for he was our 
own ; he was the hero of our little world ; our King among men. The light 
has gone out of the house he loved so well. The hearts that clung so lov- 
ingly and devotedly to the husband, father and grandfather, are numb with 
a great grief. The music of his lightest footstep, the melody of his voice, 
the splendor of his eye, the tender clasps of his dear hands, are ours to know 
no more, until our eyes are darkened and our hear'ts are stilled in this world, 
to awake to the grandeur and magnificence of the other. — Ft. Worth Gazette. 
July, i886. 

Capt. Samuel ^[illiken, after the death of his father in 1840, took the 
responsibility of his father's family. That was the mother and five youngest 
children. The three youngest, Spencer, Josephine and Bettie, looked on 
him in the light of a father and they were as his children. Spencer and 
Josephine graduated. Spencer had the star intellect of his family, but went 
down to an untimely grave. Bettie was an asthmatic, consequently did 
not finish her education with her sister, but was a well educated, well read 

Capt. Milliken had many quaint maxims, was a ready wit and always 
had something at his tongue's-end to exactly fit the occasion; and even 
when carried home fatally injured by a runaway horse he remarked : "If 
I had been born to be hanged this would not have happened." While he 
was mirthful and full of life he was not undignified. At his own table he 
was a fine entertainer and no meal was dull. He was an expert carver and 
could serve and tell a good story at the same time. His daughter says : 
" I do not remember a meal when we did not leave the table laughing." 
He was a great " tease "• in his family, but never cruel. He was a success- 
ful collector. If a man owed him who could not pay without being dis- 
tressed, he treated him kindly, but when one evaded payment who had 
means, he was followed till the debt was cancelled. He once asked a de- 
linquent creditor to renew his promise-to-pay on a piece of leather which 
he held in his hand. — material that would wear, — so he could leave it to 
his children. The hint proved effectual and the cash was paid over. Capt. 
Milliken was a Royal Arch Mason, but in latter years, because of feeble- 
ness, did not attend lodge meetings. 

Much of this data, with family records, was furnished by Mrs. Edmonia Brown, the 
eldest daughter of Capt. .Sam Milliken.

Ky., 1872. Her wedding occurred in troublesome times. All of her brothers 
were Confederates, and on the day set for the nuptials Federal soldiers sur- 
rounded the house. All who attended the marriage from Paducah procured 
passes to get through the Federal lines and it was not certain that they 
would return to their homes. As soon as the ceremony was performed and 
all had gone into the dining room to partake of the wedding feast, the bride, 
Josephine, fearing that the Federal soldiers might rush in and confiscate 
the good things on the table, left the bridegroom's side and assisted in 
serving the guests ; remarking that she wished to be sure her friends and 
not the enemies ate the supper. The clergyman who officiated was heard 
to say when relating the circumstances, that Josephine Milliken was the 
brightest and most self-possessed woman he had ever known. She was a 
graduate. She left issue as follows :

We have no documentary information and but vague traditions con- 
cerning the nativity or nationality of the ancestors of the Mullikin families 
in Maryland. Some venerable persons of the name have assumed that two 
brothers came from the North of Scotland to the Province, and the peculiar 
spelling of the surname gives strength to this assumption. The broad 
Scotch pronunciation of milk is w///X', and of Milliken would be Mullikin. 
We do know that many associates and neighbors of the early Maryland 
Mullikins had Scottish surnames, and that Patrick Mullikin once purchased 
a tract of land known as " Scotland ; " probably so called from having been 
settled from natives of that country. 

While we find the surname written by early scribes in a variety of forms 
in the provincial records, there is not an instance known where one of this 
family signed his name other than " Mullikin." 

In the records at Annapolis are found the statement that a female ser- 
vant named Jane Mullican, — should probably be Mullikin, — was brought 
over with eighty-nine others by Samuel Gibbons in the ship " Bachelor " 
from Bristol, England. There are families still living in Maryland who 
have used this orthography ; and, as many branches of the clan in Georgia, 
the Carolinas and Mississippi, were descended from Maryland or Virginia 
ancestors and spell their surname " Mullican, " we are inclined to the belief 
that all were from the same parent stock as the Mullikins. The name 
Mullikin is found recorded in Virginia of date before the American Revo- 
lution, and the late Howard Mullikin found evidence to show that the early 
Maryland families crossed the Potomac from the " (3ld Dominion." 

The early Mullikins of Maryland were among the " adventurers " and 
^'undertakers" who came over to "inhabit and plant " under Lord Balti- 
more, who was Proprietary of the Province. These emigrants came into 
Maryland in companies and were transported thither by persons of means 
at their own charges under inducements ottered in the conditions of settle- 
ment, which are set forth in documents found in the Maryland archives at 

Patrick Ml'llikix and James Mullikix came into the Province of 
Maryland long before they got their land patents, but we have no dates. 
They were evidently persons of respectability, possessed of considerable 
means, as one, at least, received grants of land in consideration of trans- 
porting several emigrants into the Province. These men were probably 
brothers or near relatives. They took up land side by side in Dorchester 
county, and subsequently in Calvert county, Maryland. The same Christian 
names are found in the records of the two branches among the early gen- 
erations, and wills were witnessed by the members of the two families 
interchangeably — showing an intimate association of interest. 

The late Howard Mullikin of the Talbot county family had made careful 
investigation of the genealogy, and records furnished by this careful authority 
constituted the basis of the family history which will follow. To supplement 


his collection the compiler has caused to be examined everv known source of 
information and paid considerable money for certified copies of the Land 
Patents, abstracts of wdls, and other documents found in this book. 

The Mullikin families were owners of extensive and valuable plantations 
and before the Emancipation Proclamation held numerous slaves. Thev 
were intermarried with the oldest, most respectable, and wealthv families 
in Maryland — the Howards, Belts, Kemps, Woodwards, Duralls, Andersons, 
Worthingtons, Gaithers, Harwoods, W'rightmans, Bowdells, Parrotts. Mitch- 
ells, Claylands, Holmes', Pickerings, Palmers. 

The early generations were communicants of the Episcopal churches and 
the vital statistics of the families were recorded in the church registers. 
After the great Methodist reformation swept over Maryland many of the 
MuUikins were devoutly athliated with that denomination. 

Physically, the Mullikins in Maryland were tall, large framed, brawny 
men ; their complexion in the early generations, fair and tiorid. Some 
of them by inheritance from maternal tributaries of blood became corpulent 
and of darker complexion. 

As a family, they were possessed of superior intelligence and public 
spirit. They were conservative and did not seek for political preferment nor 
any official distinction. Some of them showed military tastes and held 
commissions during the revolution — and subsequently. Others were church 
wardens and vestrymen. A few were successful professional teachers. 

The Mullikins who owned plantations during the early years of Marvland 
history produced enormous quantities of tobacco which was shipped to 
England and exchanged for such commodities as were indispensible in their 
families, ^^aterials for the clothing of the Mullikins was all purchased 
abroad and largely made up upon the plantations by Irish tailors and the 
neighborhood seamstresses. 

" Biue-eyed " flax was raised on the plantations and dressed bv slaves. 
The daughters in the Mullikin households were taught to spin, sew and 
knit, and the linen used for clothing, table, and toilet was often woven bv 
them. Wool and cotton were also hand-dressed on the plantations and 
woven into coarse cloth. Some of the families had a building erected for 
the spinning and weaving ; others had a place set apart for this industry in 
the kitchen, near, but not adjoining the plantation mansion. 

The "gentry" wove linen and wool, brocade of silk, and French prints 
of brocade patterns, all imported. The early men in the Mullikin family 
wore the conventional colonial costume — George Washington style — long 
coats with broad full skirts ornamented with brass buttons ; knee breeches 
with silver buckles; silk stockings and "pumps" (low shoes) with silver 
buckles, and fine linen underwear. About the close of the Revolution the 
well-to-do began to wear finer cotton goods, and one of the old Mullikins 
was wont to tell how he rebelled against wearing his first cotton shirt, and 
cried \\\\^x\ his mother insisted that he must put it on. A kind of cloth 
called "prunella" was imported and of this material the women made 
their slippers. 

The ladies wore very short-waisted, low-necked dresses with long trains 
which were held up by negro boys when they walked through the gardens 
and over the plantations, or when they visited a neighbor's house. Fancy 
the scene ! Matrons wore thread-lace caps and very high shell combs. 


Grandmothers wore turbans of fine white "mull" or white muslin. Young 
women wore high combs also, and belts with golden buckles often set with 
precious stones. When making an afternoon call, or a day's visit, the 
Mullikin ladies took their knitting, quilt-piecing, or fine sewing; thus 
uniting sociability and utility. 

It was customary for the Mullikins, the gentlemen, to congregate at 
each others houses and play games both inside and out. Thev plaved at 
" quoits " and cards, and danced with the ladies on waxed fioors. Card- 
playing was carried to the extreme of betting and playing for money, even 
among ladies of the "smart set." 

Many of the early Mullikins kept hounds, bred from the best imported 
stock, and frequently met with the planters roundabout, uniting their packs 
after the English fashion for the fox hunt. Young ladies were early taught 
to ride in the saddle and often joined in the field sports. The gallant who 
claimed the fox, decorated the hunting cap of his sweetheart with the tail. 

The old folk were driven to church in fine family carriages, while the 
young gentlemen and young ladies rode horseback. The slaves were usually 
required to remain without doors to care for the Mullikin equipage and to 
be ready, when the service closed, to take their master and mistress home. 

The principal room in the old Mullikin mansion at the " Forks of the 
Patuxent, " was called the " Hall, " and there the young folk danced and 
the old ladies had quilting parties. Apple-butter making was an occasion 
of amusement in the kitchen, and the butter was stirred by negroes. 

Cornshucking, followed by the singing and dancing peculiar to the col- 
ored people, was often watched with great interest by the Mullikin families. 

When a party of young people assembled at the Mullikin mansion for 
recreation, they had a game called "Dusting the Butter." A pound of 
butter was tied up in a canvas bag and hung before the open fire, while a 
slave kept it constantly turning. At intervals some one of the company 
would raise the cry, " Who will dust the butter " .' In turn some young lady 
would spring forward and shake fiour over the bag of melting butter. If 
the person called did not respond promptly, — and this was often the case, — 
a forfeit was demanded, and paid later in the evening. The butter was con- 
stantly melting and ozing through the bag, but the dry fiour thrown on and 
mixing with it, prevented it from dropping until it was crusted and browned 
by the heat and was very good eating when the bag was taken down. 


|lo5tcritn af |anu\s ^llulliliin. 


James MuUikin came to Maryland contemporary with his kinsman, Patrick 
Mullikin, who was head of the •' Eastern Shore Family." He patented a 
three-hundred acre tract of land under Lord Baltimore, in Dorchester Co., 
Md., called " Mullikin's Orchard", on April iSth, 1664, and a two-hundred 
acre tract in the same county denominated "• Mullikin's Green, " on Aug. 
14th, 1665. From this man are descended the ''Western Shore Families, " 
early settled in Anne Arundel and Prince George Counties. James Mul- 
likin was married prior to 1X6S to Mary Darxall,* widow of John Darnall, 
who was evidently his second wife. He made his will on Aug. iSth, 1660 ; 
this was proved Oct. 16, 1669. the year of his death. This testament is 
very brief. He caused to be written: "First, I give and bequeath all my 
lands and all that I have unto Mary Mullikin my wife and all my children, 
and that none other shall have to do with anything therein, she only pay- 
ing my debts." This was witnessed by William Murrah and Benjamin 
Granger. In his will he was styled "Planter of Patuxent, " and the old 
Mullikin estate so long in possession of this branch of the family has been 
described as situated at the "Forks of the Patuxent." From the old Land 
Plats now preserved at the homestead, it appears that the " Forks " means a 
bend, or loop, in the Patuxent river. One who claimed to know, said James 
Mullikin purchased the Patuxent property for two of his sons and that he, 
meanwhile, lived in another county. From his title in the will we conclude 
that this James was a resident of Anne Arundel county. The names of all 
of his children are not known as they are not mentioned in his will. It is 
recorded, however, in the Provincial records, as follows: "An act for the 
payment of the public charge of the Province in Calvert county, to the 
orphan cliildren of James Mullikin, 450 pounds of tobacco." This was of 
date April, 167 1 ; v/as due to their father for some service he had rendered 
the province and was paid by order of the Provincial Assemblv. From the 
plural number employed in his will, " all my children, " and the corres- 
ponding statement in the last quoted entry of the early records, we know 
that there were several children in this family; and we have found in the 
registers of the Episcopal churches the names of MuUikins of a date so 
early that we are safe in assuming that they were the offspring of this James 
Mullikin. Some of these were probably children of his first wife, and sons 
may have settled in other sections of Maryland as heads of families whose 
genealogical connections have not been satisfactorily established. There 
are reasons for believing that this James Mullikin, and Patrick Mullikin of 
the Eastern Shore family, were brothers. They both settled in Calvert 
county, and took up land near each other in Dorchester county. 

*I am not sure about this surname. The late Howard Mullikin of Baltimore, Md., 
wrote me: "it is D^inull or DarndraH.'' In one branch of the Mullikin family it wa.s 
clearly written DuiaU\ but the families may not be identical. Illegible chirography is 
the cause of many errors of spelling in personal names. Anther. 


.^-cfonD C'kncration. 


James Mullikin- (2), son of James Mullikin, was b. before 1663 as proved 
by a Chancery Deposition in the Land Commissioner's office at Annapolis, 
Md. He was evidently his father's successor to the old estate in Anne 
Arundel county. He was a man of considerable enterprise and consigned 
his crops of tobacco to English merchants, exchanging this '• Indian weed " 
for such articles as were needed on his plantation. He made his will April 
25, 1740, and must have been an aged man. His wife's name was Charity. 
He gave his son Jen-jiiiah a negro named '' Robert." Gave his son Beiijaniin 
a negro named ''Snow," — with condition that if either son should die 
before the age of iS, the survivor should have both negroes. He gave his 
son Thomas a negro boy. Gave his daughter, Mary Howard, 20 pounds in 
money. Gave his daughter, Elizabeth Dura//* a negro girl named "Hannah." 
Gave his son /i7Wt'jr a negro named "Pompey." Provides that his sons 
Benjamin, Jeremiah and Thomas '• enjoy the benefit of their own labor" after 
they reach the age of iS. Until that time they were to be maintained and 
educated by their mother. Balance of his property bequeathed to his 
children, /atiies, Benjamin, /c?r?niah, Tho?nas, and E/izabeth. Gave grand- 
son, James Durall, the first child of negro Hannah, "when it is born." 
This will was witnessed by Thomas Mullikin and John Mullikin. Names 
of children, far as known, will follow.

1. Jeremiah Mullikin-^ (1), son of James- (2), was b. after 1722, and was 
not 18 years of age in 1740 when mentioned in his father's will. It has 
been stated that this Jeremiah Mullikin was settled by his father on his 
lands at the " Forks of the Patuxent, " alongside of his brother Thomas, 
and the " platts " of the estate show the area possessed by each with bound- 
aries, partition lines, landmarks, etc. His wife was Margaret and his two 
daughters, of whom more hereafter, were rn, with members of the Howard 
and W'orthington families. In his will he mentioned his son, Belt Mullikin. 
whom he appoints his executor ; daughters Margaret and Ann, and grand- 
sons Jeremiah Brice Howard and Jeremiah Worthington, to each of whom 
he gave a negro boy. His will was signed by Thomas Mullikin Jr., and 
Zachariah and Joshua Gaither. He d. on his plantation in Anne Arundel 
Co., in 1799. 

2. Benjamin Mullikin Wl), son of James- (1), b. after 1722, was not iS 
years of age when, in 1740, his father made his will and gave him a negro 
boy by name of "Snow." He was to be maintained and educated by his 
mother until he arrived to the age of iS years; then to "have the benefit 
of his own labors." This Benjamin Mullikin removed to North Carolina, 
settling in Buncomb county, where he m. to Margaret Jarvis, but 
subsequently removed to Anderson Co., South Carolina, where he lived to

surname is Durall or Denrall. 


old age, and brought up a large family. For names of children and grand- 
children see '' MuUikins of South Carolina." 

3. Thomas MuUikin'' (1), son of James'- (1), b. after 1/22, was under 18 
years of age when his father's will was made in 1740. This lad, like two of 
his brothers, was to be supported and educated by his mother until he had 
attained the age of 18 years; then he was to have the benefit of his own 
labors. To him his father bequeathed a negro boy and, jointly with his 
brothers and sisters, the balance of his property. This was the first Thomas 
MuUikin of whom I find any record, but he was not identical with that 
Thomas who made his will in Anne Arundel county in 1745; who must 
have been b. as early as 170S or 17 10. Xo record of a family found, but 
this is no proof that he did not have one. 

4. James MuUikin' (3 ), son of James- (1), may have been his father's 
eldest son, as he was not mentioned as a minor in 1740. He was given a 
negro named "Pompey," and made joint heir with his brothers and sisters 
to his father's estate. I have no more information concerning this James 

5. Elizabeth Mullikin-^ (T), daughter of James- (2), was the wife of a Mr. 
DuRALL, and had a son as early as 1740 who was a beneficiary of his 
grandfather's will. Her father gave her a negro named '• Hannah, " and to 
her son, Hannah's first child, prenatal, when b. Probably some of the 
Maryland Duralls are her descendents. 

6. Mary MuUikin' (1). daughter of James'- (2) was m. to a Mr. Howard 
before 1740. To her, in his v.ill, he gave 20 pounds in money. She was 
probably the ancestress of some of the numerous and respectable Howards 
of Marvland. 

Thomas Mullikin of Anne Arundel Co., Md., made his will in 1745. His 
wife's name was Elizabeth. To her he gave his dwelling and plantation 
during her widowhood ; then to his son Williatn to whom he also gave a 
negro man named " Tone, " on condition that the widow have his labor dur- 
ing her life. . He gave to his son 77io?nas two negro boys named " Sharper " 
and " Black Wall." Provides that this son Thomas shall have the benefit of 
his labors when he arrives at the age of eighteen years. He gave to his 
daughter Charity, a negro girl named " Hannah " on condition that she 
should serve his widow during her widowhood. The names of his children, 
as mentioned in his will, were : Ull/iam, Thomas, Charity, Eleanor, 
Elizabeth, Rachel, (Goodman) and Mary (Harper). It will be seen that 
this Thomas Mullikin was not identical with Thomas of Revolutionary fame, 
as he was living many vears subsequent to the death of this Thomas. And 
the names of his children do not correspond. 

Thomas Mullikin, probably a son of James'- (2), was born as early as 1740. 
He married Elizabeth Ellen Williams about 1762. She had several 
brothers in the Re\olutionary Army. Family tradition makes this Thomas 
and his brother Jeremiah their father's heirs to the plantation at the 
"Forks of the Patuxent," and he was evidently the son of the second 
James and his wife Charity, beforementioned. An old plan of the Patuxent 


estate " Platted by IJrice Howard, 6th Oct.. 17S6, by a scale of 50 equal 
parts in an inch," shows the division line between Jeremiah Mullikin and 
Thomas Mullikin. A note on this plan reads thus : •' Courses for the 33S 
acres beginning at a stone planted by Benjamin Mullikin near the road, it 
being the beginning of the dividing line between them " (Jeremiah and 
Thomas). Then follows the course of the survey. This land is denomi- 
nated : '* A Morety of Merritons Fancy," and •• Simpson's Choice." That 
part assigned to Thomas Mullikin contained 33SJ4 acres; that assigned to 
Jeremiah Mullikin contained 337 -'4 acres. 

Another plan, surveyed and platted by Richard Beard 20th Feb., 16S4-5, 
shows the boundaries and number of acres in the original lands known as 
"Merritons Fancy," and "Simpson's Choice." This survey was made for 
John Merriton and John Simpson. The plan, or " platt," as it was called, 
beautifully drawn with pen and ink. shows the course of the Patuxent river 
and contains the rigures of twelve trees at as many corners, named " Gum- 
tree," " Hickory," or " Red oak ■' as the case might require. "Merritons 
Fancy" contained 500 acres, and "Simpson's Choice" 615 acres. A part 
of this grant was owned by Colonel Greenbury. Accompanying this old 
plan of the two tracts of land is a document showing the courses of the 

Thomas Mullikin owned more that 50 slaves at one time. He had a 
large and elegantly constructed carriage, in form like a Swan, drawn by a 
pair of handsome, spirited horses which was of capacity suitable for two 
persons besides the coachman, and footman who stood behind. On this 
vehicle was carved the coat-of-arms of the family and under it a large or- 
namental letter "M for Mullikin. Thomas Mullikin was a very strict dis- 
ciplinarian in his family and with his servants. He never allowed any pro- 
fane language used on his plantation, and insisted on his family being 
represented at church every Sabbath. He was, however, a very indulgent 
father and kept open house for his children's company. But he had a 
quick temper and if some of his boys were in a dispute and saw him ap- 
proaching they instantly disappeared. He was a dignified, proud-spirited 
gentleman of the old southern aristocratic school, and held fast to the 
tradition of a superior ancestry. 

It was a custom of Thomas Mullikin to sit with his wife, of whom he 
was very fond, to a cup of tea at four o'clock every afternoon. When they 
had sufficed, a meal was prepared for the children, at which it was the duty 
of the eldest daughters to preside, and see that each was provided for. The 
girls disliked to serve in this capacity and on one occasion Cave, — who was 
named for her father's favorite physician, — and her sister Charity, were in 
a dispute as to whose turn it was to serve. At that moment their father 
appeared on the scene, and at the sight of his displeased countenance they 
beat a hasty retreat. Cave was so chagrined at having made such an un- 
dignified exit, that she determined to turn the tables on her father. First, 
she secreted herself under the doorsteps ; then, after having found out that 
the whole family were searching for her, she slipped up to bed and feigned 
a severe headache as a result of the fright her father gave her. As soon, 
however, as he had exhibited suitable repentence, she recovered. A few- 
days after this incident the elder daughters were in the parlor with 
some young gentlemen who had called, and at the same time the younger 


girls were playing at '-visiting." All unexpected, one of them entered the 
room in trailing garments and said : " How are you all ? I hear our sister 
Cave is ill from fear that her father would cane her." At this exposure 
Cave, with much embarrassment, confessed the deception she had practiced 

At one time Thomas MuUikin was riding over his plantation accom- 
panied by a favorite negro, and was overtaken by nightfall. They heard a 
sound in the shrubbery as of distress, and going to investigate, a panther 
sprang upon them. The frightened slave instantly turned and fied, while 
his master followed as fast as his tieet-horse could carry him. When the 
family heard the frenzied negro screaming as he approached the house, 
they ran out with lights to learn the cause ; these frightened the panther 
that had pursued them and they reached shelter unharmed. The remark- 
able thing about this adventure was that the negro outran the horse and 
reached home before his master. Fancy the race for life ! 

Numbered among the slaves on the Mullikin plantation at the Forks of 
the Patuxent, were the son and daughter of an African chief, stolen on the 
coast and brought to Maryland by the slave-traders. It was the duty of 
this negro boy to care for the flaxen-haired baby, Thomas Mullikin Jr., and 
while doing so he would often run his dusky fingers through the yellow- 
curls and shout to his sister, "Look Dinah," and then would throw himself 
backward and shake with convulsive laughter. 

Thomas Mullikin raised extensive fields of tobacco, much of which was 
cured on the plantation and shipped to England to be exchanged for such 
goods and wares as were needed in the family. He also raised wool and 
flax and this was hand-dressed and manufactured at the Mullikin home. 
The young ladies were all taught to sew and knit and found much pleasure 
in making quilts and samplers. 

The children of Thomas attended the same school and their teacher was 
boarded in the same family. At one time an educated Irishman who had 
found his way into the colony was their instructor, and being very fond of 
a cup of tea in the afternoon, he would go snuffing around and in his 
inimitable brogue ask if the " ta-kattle " was on. When the children were 
at school the slaves carried their dinners out to them : the tablecloths, 
napkins and dishes were spread upon the grass under some tree and all had 
a merry time while at their repast. 

When old enough to ride, each of the daughters had a horse, and thus 
early became expert in the saddle. They were accustomed, when visiting 
or going to church, to ride their own palfreys. 

In dressing for dinner on some especial occasions, Mrs. Mullikin would 
wear a long, graceful white ostrich feather in her hair to make her costume 
more attractive. This woman was noted for her beneficence. She would 
throw a cloak about her, draw the hood over her head, call a negro boy to 
jump up behind her, and ride for miles to visit the sick, rich or poor, and 
minister to their needs. In the absence of the doctor she could take his 
place and perform his offices successfully. At one time the " quarter fever " 
broke out on her husband's plantation and thirty negroes died under the 
doctor's hand. Then Elizabeth proposed to her husband that she would 
have the barn cleared out, whitewashed, and clean straw beds laid down on 
the floor. This was done, the stricken negroes were removed to the barn, 
and she attended them, assisted by some of the negro women. Every one 


was saved. The negro houses were then jcleaned and whitewashed and the 
" fever " disappeared. Mrs. Marv Hart believes that this Thomas Mullikin 
married his wife in England, and that she was a Scotch gentlewoman who 
brought her serving maid with her. This highborn lady was always spoken 
of as proud, haughty and imperious, and she could never fully adjust herself 
to the primitive conditions of the country at the time of her settlement in 
Maryland. Her domestic was married in Prince George county, and a 
daughter became the wife of Jeremiah Mullikin from whom the Wood- 
wards and Belt Mullikin were descended. Mrs. Thomas Mullikin could 
never forgive her son for this alliance with the daughter of her maid, but the 
descendents of this woman are among the most intellectual and respect- 
able members of the Mullikin family. 

This Thomas Mullikin showed his enterprise by the introduction into 
Maryland of a team of large, handsome horses, wearing bells, and a great 
covered wagon. This was widely known as the '' liell Team, " and was at 
that time, an inovation. Mrs. Mary Hart, a woman well informed in the 
history of this Mullikin family, is quite sure that her grandfather purchased 
the horses and wagon in England. For many years this '' Bell Team " was 
used for the transportation of freight from Pennsylvania and Ohio over the 
mountains, passing regularly through Cumberland, Md., and attracting con- 
siderable attention by the music of the bells and the enormous capacity of 
the canvas-covered wagon. Some soldiers pressed this team into service 
during the Revolution to carry arms to Cumberland, but it was restored to 
its owner after some lapse of time. 

^\'t'/£'.— Many of the slaves on the Patuxent Plantation were purchased from cargoes of 
Africans brought to this country by the slave dealers. " Guinea negroes " v.-ere said to 
be the best breed known at that time, and their descendents in point of integrity, intellect 
and sterling worth, were celebrated throughout the community. One of these was 
deserving of special notice. His name was Moses. He was the son oi Lvle, and grandson 
of Guinea parents. This slave was a very bright Mulatto — one authority says his father 
was a gentleman in Annapolis — born about the year iSoo, and died in 1870. He was left 
by his master, Capt. Thomas Mullikin, to his second wife who permitted him to live and 
work where he pleased; but as a reward for such liberties required of him S75.00 per 
year. He fell in arrears of payment, and a daughter by her tirst husband, who was 
executrix, collected what was due several years after the death of his old mistress. Moses 
was a rough carpenter and found plenty of work. He also cultivated small patches of 
land. A local preacher of the Methodist church, he dispensed the word to the colored 
folk in the church-house of the white Methodists on alternate Sabbaths. None of his 
numerous children lived to be more than 40 years of age. He was much thought of by 
the white people, and recognized as their leader by the colored people. His wife outlived 
him, dying several years later. 

Thomas Mullikin was a military man. Records found in the Maryland 
archives show that he held a commission in the militia during the Revo- 
lution. June 15, 1776, the Council of Safety orders payment to Mrs. Anne 
Johnson for providing subsistence for Capt. Thomas Mullikin's Company of 
Militia on the late alarm of the " Otter, " sloop of war. At a meeting of 
Capt. Thomas Mullikin's Company of Militia, May 15, 1776, he resigned 
his commission, as did Belt Mullikin the 2d lieutenant. 

He made his will Oct. 11, 1800. It was probated in 1805, and he 
probably died in that year. His widow survived many years, dying about 
1825. He bequeathed his dwelling and plantation, being part of land 
called "Simpson's Choice, " part called " It is done at last, " and part of 


" Chaneys Purchase, " to his two sons, James and Benjamin, forever. 
Children mentioned in his will : James, Thomas, Benjamin, Basil, Bicracli, 
Osborn, EUender, Chanty, Cave, Mary, Elizabeth, and Sarah. Twin daugh- 
ters died in infancy — in all, fourteen.

I. James MuUikin^ (4). eldest son of Thomas' (1), was the joint-heir with 
Benjamin to the homestead plantation at the ••Forks of Patuxent." This 
was held in common until iSii, when the lands were parted by a new sur- 
vey and " platted " by James H. Marriott. The section assigned to James 
embraced the lands denominated " It is done at last, " and ''Chaneys Pur- 
chase, " and contained iSSj^f acres. He deeded 1261.^ acres of land to 
Samuel Snowden, Oct. iS, iSii, and 62 acres to Benjamin Mullikin, his 
brother, same date. The partition deed, now before the compiler of this 
volume, has the signature of his wife who was maiden-named An\ Duvall. 
This was his second wife. He married for first wife a Miss Petty. Some 
records at Annapolis show that this James Mullikin was a commissioned 
officer in the Maryland militia. In November, 1775, James was voted for 
as a field officer in the Patuxent Battalion. June iS, 1776, Richard Ben- 
nett Hall, captain of a company of 25th battalion, Maryland militia, com- 
plains that James Mullikin, ist lieutenant of his company, had tried to in- 
jure him by misrepresentation and abusive language, and requests a court 
martial at Annapolis. Order passed by Council of Safety, July 6, 1776, for 
a genera! court martial to be held at the trial of Capt. Hall, Lieut. Mulli- 
kin and others. On Jan. 27, 1777, Robert Tyler informs Council of Safety 
that Capt. Hall of his battalion refuses to obey orders, and advises them to 
make ist Lieut. James Mullikin captain. July 4, 1777, a commission was 
issued by the Council of Safety to James Mullikin as 2d lieut. in Capt. John 
Mitchell's company, 14th battalion militia of Caroline county. May ist, 
X77S, commission issued to James Mullikin as captain in upper battalion of 
militia, Prince George county. June 15, 177S, Council orders payment to 
Capt. James Mullikin of ;^9,6,8d due to him and part of his company. Coun- 
cil appoints James Mullikin, justice of ' the peace for Prince George county, 
Nov. 20, 177S; his commission issued Jan. 26, 1779. Feb. 23, 1779, Council 
notifies James Mullikin of Prince George county of complaint by J. Drane 
and others against him, and their request for his removal. Wednesday, 
March 10, appeared for a hearing and witnesses summoned. Date changed 
to March 29th. .Vpril ist, 1779, record of three days in examining witnesses 
on case. Recommended that differences be settled and the contestants live 
in peace. Memoralists agree to withdraw complaint. So much of the court 

•This James Mullikin was born as early as 1767 — possibly before that — 
as he was older than his brother Benjamin whose birth was in 1769. -Some 
years after the partition of the land, and after he had married his second 
wife, he sold out and removed to Kentucky. At that time he must have 
been fully fifty years of age. He was very poor when he left Maryland. 
Several years afterwards he took a drove of horses and mules to his native 
state and remained among his relatives until they were sold ; then returned 
to Kentucky and was never afterward heard from by his family save by a 


rumor that he had mo\ed to Ohio. He probably had a familv of children 
before leaving Maryland. See '• Mullikin's of Fleming Co., Ky."

riott at the time denominated the " north section " and bordering on the 
river. Thus Benjamin succeeded to the homestead and buildings possessed

this union there were three children of whom, with other issues, more here- 
after. \\'hen about sixteen years of age he was sent to Baltimore to learn 
merchandizing with Thomas Keaton who was in some way connected with 
the Mullikin family.* But he became a teacher in Washington, Baltimore, and 
at the " Forks of the Patuxent." He was a concise and forceable writer 
and a natural teacher and orator. He was a close student and acquired his 
education after he left the country school, and always spoke with some 
degree of disappointment because his father did not send him to college. 
He was long a Slethodist classleader and local preacher: also a Magistrate 
and Notary Public. In politics, he was an "Old Line ^\'hig, " and believed 
in all that Henry Clay and Daniel Webster stood for. He was a strong 
Abolitionist, violently opposed to slavery, but always stood on the side of 
law. He was heard to say that while he would not help a negro to run 
away from his master, he would turn his back and not stop him. He was 
very conservative and carried this trait of character into everyday life, in- 
to church and politics; always willing to "let well enough alone." He was 
tall and of full figure ; of fair complexion with very intelligent blue eyes. 
He was called a very handsome man and was something of a beau in his 
young days. His residence was about one mile from his father's home- 
stead on the banks of the Patuxent river. His last wife d. in Baltimore, 
Md., in Aug., 1855. Mr. Mullikin d. in Lancaster Co., Penn., while visit- 
ing some relatives, in Dec, 1863, in his 80th year. For an account of his

full maiden name is unknown. His homestead was a part of the original 
Patuxent grant and contained 340 acres, bordering on the river. In iSii, 
this estate was represented as belonging to the "• heirs of Belt Mullikin, " on 
the land-plat. But I am informed that the estate has since passed to the 
Woodward family. The children of Belt were named : Jeremiah^ Basil,

Patrick MuUikinS whose parents' names and places of nativity are not cer- 
tainly known, was probably born as early as 1600. He was one ot the 
tirst " adventurers " who undertook to transport at his own charges emi- 
grants to "inhabit and plant" into the Province of Maryland, and con- 
sidering the conditions of settlement, we assume that he was a man of 
quality and possessed of considerable means. Lord Baltimore was then 
Proprietary of the whole Province, and he held out liberal inducements in 
form of extensive grants of land to persons who would undertake to procure 
and transport a certain number of emigrants who were willing to become 
permanent settlers and planters ; and the concessions of land were to be 
in proportion to the number of such persons brought into the Province. 
The documents in the Maryland archives at Annapolis show that Patrick 
Mullikin transported, at different times, a considerable number of emigrants 
into Maryland, and that he was awarded extensive tracts of land in Dor- 
chester, Calvert, and Talbot counties for this service.* Among those by 
him transported whose names appear, were, Joane Mullikin, Humphrey 
Walters, Nicholas Hartley, John Sluter, Christopher Ellis, and Ann, his cook ; 
and at another time, John Cook, William Kldridge, William Crayman, and 
John Sittimore. 

Patrick Mullikin was in the Province of Maryland as early as March 30, 
1663, for on that day there was surveyed and laid out for him a tract of 
land in Talbot Co., consisting of 300 acres called ''Patrick's Plains ; " but 
for reasons not specified he did not immediately comply with the conditions 
of settlement ( which were changed frequently) and his patent did not issue. 
He subsequently fulfilled his obligation, however, and on July 5, 1646, 
received his title. 

The records of Annapolis show that Patrick Mullikin in April, 1662, 
desired his warrant for 700 acres of land on the Eastern Shore, or 350 acres 
on the Western Shore, dated 2d May, 1661, to be returned by the last of 
December next to be renewed. This warrant was issued to the Surveyor 
General to lay out for Patrick Mullikin 700 acres on the Eastern Siiore, or 
350 on the Western Shore, of date .A.pril i, 1663, and certified to be re- 
turned by the last of September following. He did not have his entire 
warrant executed at once. In those days they were allowed to '* split " the

Humphrey Walters, Nicholas Barley, John Sheter, Christopher KIlis, and .A.nn his cook. 
\Varrant to .Surveyor General to lay out for the said Patrick Mullkin seven hundred acres 
on the Eastern Shore, or three hundred and fifty on the Western Shore. Un March 20, 
1662, Fiancis Armstrong enters these rights, viz:— James Williams, John Cook, Thomas 
Binks, Margaret Stone, Henry Gill, Francis I'arrott, Hatton Band, Charles Davis, John 
Sickamore, William Trayman, William Klderidge, and John Cook, in all twelve persons 
having oath proved in ordinarii supria fol. 230, and demands warrant for the same. And 
the said Francis Arm>trong doth assign over four of the aforementioned rights unto 
Patrick Mullikin ; and he, the said I'atrick, demands warrant, and there were laid out for 
him 200 acres of land according to the said assignment. 


warrants and lay them in different parts of the Province. His name appears 
on record Nov. 20, 1654, when he with others purchased a neck of land in 
Leonard's Creek known as " Scotland." Shortly afterwards, f'eb. 22, 1656, 
we find by record that Patrick MuUikin and James Ganion "doth this day 
enter a caveat in the Secretary's office for administration upon the estate 
of Andrew Scott and Thomas Ayer, deceased." He was mentioned as a 
juryman at a court held at Patuxent, Dec. 30, 1657. With James Gannis 
(Sic) he patented a 500 acre tract of land called "Taylor's Joy," Nov. 19, 
1658.. On May 2, 1661, he entered his demand for transportation in the 
province of his wife and four other persons : in consideration of which he 
obtained a grant of land consisting of 400 acres in Dorchester Co., Md,, 
known as "Patrick's Well." He sold this tract in 1674 to John Pollard. 
On Mar. 30, 1663, he had surveyed " Patrick's Choice, " a 200 acre tract 
in Talbot Co., and the following day, Mar. 31, 1663 a tract of 300 acres 
in the same county called "Patrick's Plains.'"* After this we do not rind 
mention of him in the archives until Apr., 1669, when the Maryland Assem- 
bly orders 450 pounds of tobacco paid to him, consideration not stated, and 
in Sept., 16SS, the Assembly ordered 300 pounds more be paid to him. 

The date of his m. to Joax, his first wife, is not known, but we may get 
an approximate idea bv the birth of his son John, it being in 1659. Al- 
though he took up land in Dorchester Co., he does not appear to have ever 
resided there. He probably lived in Calvert Co., until after the survey of 
his Talbot county lands and then established his home there. At this time 
Talbot county had not been erected much more than one year. After the 
death of Joan Mullikin, he m. secondly, Apr. 6, 167 i, Kli/aijeth Kendrick:. 
He d. at " Patrick's Choice," his homestead plantation, in 16S6. There 
were probably several children by Joan as the records of the Episcopal church 
show baptisms and marriages of many Mullikins who cannot be otherwise 
accounted for. The only son known was 

John MuUikin- (1), son of Patrick^ (1), and his wife Joax, was b. in 1659, 
as proved by a deposition made by him in 1713, which reads as follows: 
"John MuUakin, aged 54 years or thereabouts (being first sworn), on oath 
says that he well remembers that his father, Patrick Mullakin, in his lifetime 
told this depont that there was likely to be some dispute betwixt him and 
Walter Dickinson, about the land he dwelt on etc., etc. "Taken this 27th 
March in the 12th year of the Reign of our Sovereign Lady Queen Anne, 
Anon D. in 17 13." On Feb. 9, 1679, he was appointed an attorney to trans- 
fer land to William Stevens, of Island Creek, Talbot Co., Md. He m. his 
first wife Jaxe, about 1684, and settled at " Patrick's Plains," on land given 
him by his father, and now ( 1903) owned by a descendent, Clayland Mulli- 
kin Esq., of Easton, Md. In addition to this land inherited from his father, 
he was possessed of " Readly," 150 acres, a part of " Casson's Choice." In 

*"Patrick'.s I'LAINS " is located on Island Creek, a stream making in from the 
Choptauk river and is navigable for 100 ton vessels up to the above named farm which 
is some four miles from its mouth. There are now no old buildings on the estate, and 
the old graveyard where the early generations of the Mullikin family were interred is 
without inscribed monuments. There was an I-^piscopal church three miles away and 
about the same distance from Trappe ; this was abandoned in ib5S. and was destroyed by 
fire since the new church was erected in town. The records of births, marriages and 
deaths of the Mullikin family were found in the registers of St. Peter's parish. 


the year 1692-3, he was on the grand jury, in 170S and 1709 was vestryman 
of St. Peter's parish, and in a list of pewholders in the vestry book he 
appears, in 1730, as holding pew Xo. 7 in the parish church at "White 
Marsh." His wife, J axe, d. Aug. 4, 1701, and he m. secondly, Sarah, widow 
of John ^[itchell, who survived him, he having d. in 1736. His will of date 
May 2, 1734, and proved June 2S, 1736, is recorded at Annapolis ; the orig- 
inal is at the office of register of wills at Easton, Md., and his signature 
thereto, though written when he was 75 years of age, is strikingly legible, 
and shows that he spelled his surname " Mullikin," as generally used bv the 
families in Maryland. From his will it appears that he had seven children 
whose names will presently be recorded.

( An Abstract. ) 

I give to my son John Mullikin one hundred acres of land called Tay- 
lor's Ridge ; tifty acres more called Timber Xeck ; also fifty acres more 
called Timber Xeck Addition, and part of a tract called York. In case John 
should die without issue then said lands shall go to my son Jesse. 

I give and bequeath unto my son Jesse Mullikin the remaining part of 
my lands forever. 

If my son John should live and have heirs so that my son Jesse cannot 
come in for my lands, Taylors Ridge, Timber Xeck, and York, aforesaid. 
But in case my son John ^Iullikin should die without lawful issue and my 
son Jesse should come in for my lands aforesaid, then my will and desire 
is that my two sons William Mullikin and James Mullikin should have the 
lands lying in the Southwestward of the straight line that leads from the 
Hickory, etc., to them and their heirs forever to be equally divided. 

My will is that if it should please God that my two sons John Mullikin 
and Jesse Mullikin should die without lawful issue that the lands bequeathed 
to my son John should go and return to my son William Mullikin and his 
heirs forever. Also the lands bequeathed to my son Jesse Mullikin should 
go and descend to my son James Mullikin and his heirs forever. 

P'urther my will and desire is that if it should please God that my four 
sons aforesaid should die without lawful issue, that the lands bequeathed to 
my son John should go to my son Samuel Mullikin and his heirs forever ; 
and the lands bequeathed to my son Jesse should go and descend to my 
two daughters Sarah and Mary and their heirs forever.

His wife was b. on the Atlantic ocean, ten days before the vessel reached

They lived there until the spring of 1S41, when they moved to Connersville 
in the same county where he purchased the home in which he resided until 
his d., which occurred Nov. 14, 1884. Like many in this branch of the 
family, he was a shoemaker by trade, and after leaving his farm worked at 
his craft. He bought a foundry and machine shop later in life and engaged 
in the manufacture of agricultural implements. He took an active part in 
town affairs and was as well versed in law as many professional practition- 
ers. Always acting from principle rather than policy he maintained a high 
reputation for truth and honesty. He was not a church member, but his 
sympathies were with the M.E. church of which his wife was a communicant. 
His moral character was such that it could be truthfully said of him, "his 
word was as good as his bond." Mrs. Mullikin d. at Connersville, Ind., May 7, 

*\Vhen Rosanna Mullikin was young she made her breakfast on bread and milk, in 
summer, out-of-doors. There being a grove near the house she would go there with 
cup and spoon to eat. .She was known to come back to the house frequently for more 
milk ; this excited curiosity, and she was watched. What was the surprise of her parents 
when they saw her sitting on a log feeding a large snake in front of her with the bread and 
milk ; and when she did not feed fast enough the snake would try to put its head into the 
cup; then she would rap it with her spoon until it drew back. Her partnts were horrified 
at such a spectacle and quickly i)ut a stoj) to this singular transaction. As the girl soon 
became sick and died, sujjerstitious old dames said the snake had charmed her. At any 
rate, the snake got the "lion's share " of the food, while for want of proper nourishment, 
the maid grew weak and went down to death.

The Mullikin families in Kentucky are all of one race but descended from 
different branches of the parent stock. Their posterity, living side by side 
in Robertson, Nicholas, Fleming and Mason counties, mingle and hold tra- 
ditions of their derivation and kinship, but have no record to prove the con- 
nection. From what can be learned by an extensive correspondence, it 
appears that families from the Anne Arundel and the Montgomery counties 
in Maryland, removed to Kentucky about the same time, but didn't all make 
the journey the same year. The motive for this westward migration was to 
secure cheap and rich lands. Prospector's from Maryland, hearing of the 
advantages to be gained by a settlement in the new state, had visited Ken- 
tucky and returned home to give a report of their adventures and the quality 
of the soil, timber, water and climate. They exploited the richness of the 
"bottom lands," the abundance of "lime water" springs, the "mill privi- 
leges," and healthful climate. It was a land flowing with wild honey and salt- 
licks, and abounding in possums and coons. The excitement resulting from 
the stories told by these forerunners was contagious, and there were hastened 
disposals of property and a general "pulling up of stakes" in preparation 
for the removal to Kentucky. 

They made the journey from Montgomery and Anne Arundel counties 
with horses and canvas-covered wagons,taking their meagre household goods, 
slaves, and stock with them. Their route was — after crossing the Poto- 
mac — through Virginia to the Ohio river which they crossed by ferry boats 
t-o the Kentucky side. They camped on the road and the women cooked 
food around the evening fires. Land was entered, rude log houses rolled up, 
farms cleared, and wheat, maize, cotton, hemp, rlax, tobacco, and vegetables 
were cultivated. Life in the new plantations was simple, and lu.xuries a minus 
quantity. Clothing was produced home-spun, from wool, cotton and flax. 
The spinning wheel and loom were heard in every cabin. Birch-bark was 
used for buckets and goard-shells for dishes. For house lights they used 
pine-knots, and " slut " lamps made by putting a twisted rag for the wick, 
I into a mussel shell tilled with bear's grease or possum oil. The long rities 

i were always at hand, and the MuUikin's became keen hunters. Salt was 

i found at the deer-licks, and wild honey in hollow trees. 

The Mullikin families were remarkably prolific, and their posterity is 
now numerous in many counties. .Sub-branches from Kentucky and Xorth 
Carolina stock have been planted in the western states, and the Mullikin 
blood riows in the veins of a hundred families bearing other names. Many 
are persons of superior natural parts, and the present generations are a\-ail- 
ing themselves of the advantages of education. As a faiflily, they have been 
proud-spirited and independent, but kind-hearted and hospitable. The 
j families in Kentucky have but few vital records, and their history and gene- 

j a't'gy are principally traditional. 


John Mullikin is supposed to have m. a Miss I'rick in Virginia who was 
a sister of Sarah Price, the mother of Rev. Kli !\ Farmer, a well known and 
aggressive minister in Kentuckv. These sisters were of an old and respect- 
able Virginia family, and the MuUikins and Farmers removed to Kentucky 
contemporaneously. Much of the unyielding will-power and energy so con- 
spicuous in those families, was inherited from the Trices, and was oipriccless 
value as a factor of success during pioneer days.

1. William Mullikin- ( 1 ), s(jn of John' ( 1 ), b in Virginia in the year 1 790 : 
removed with his parents to Shelby Co., Ky., when young. He m. Sarah 
Scott, daughter of George Scott, a wealthy and aristocratic So. Carolinian 
of Scottish descent, who was a follower of Daniel Boone as a pioneer in 
Kentucky. His plantation was about ten miles from Bedford, Ky.. on the 
Newcastle road, and persons now living remember of visiting there when 
they were children. He was mentioned by relati\'es as a man of kindness 
and strict integrity, but possessed of an uncompromising will. He was a 
slave-holder. Mrs. Mullikin was small, with black eyes and dark complex- 
ion. She was a woman of great energy and Spartan courage, but of an 
amiable and refined life. Her intellectual and bodily powers remained 
quite unimpaired until old age, and when she was S5 she could ride horse- 
back as gracefully as a girl. In the company of Mrs. O'Brien, her daughter, 
and family, she went to Texas in 1S72, making part of the journey by steam- 
boat. She was an honored guest of the captain and his wife for fifteen days ; 
and was spoken of as "a queenly old lady." During the voyage she kept 
a dairy of daily events which was highly prized. 'Fhe overland journey from 
Jefferson to ^IcKinney, Texas, made on horseback was very hard — they en- 
camped in tents at night — and the old lady never recovered from her fatigue. 
She d. in Dec. 1872. The family bible containing a record of births, mar- 
riages and deaths was carried with her effects and, unfortunately, was soon 
after destroyed by fire in a burning house. This mu-st account for the 
absence of dates in the following pages. Eight children. See 6th generation. 

2. James Mullikin- (1), son of John' (1), b. in Virginia, Jan. 14, 17S8, re- 
moved to Kentucky with his parents in early life and settled in Shelby Co. 
He enlisted as a private, Sept. 18, 181 2, in the Co. of Capt. Rowland Burk, 
commanded by Col. Samuel South, and was discharged Oct. 30, 18 12. One 
of his descendants savs he served under Jackson in the Co. of Capt. Gillispie, 
as one of the celebrated "squirrel hunters" (expert riflemen) of Kentucky. 
He must have enlisted a second time in 1S15. His company were conveyed 
down the Ohio and Mississippi rivers to New Orh.-ans by boats, but they 
returned on foot through the wilderness amid the Indian tribes then inhab- 
iting the country. 

He m. ist, Rachei, McOaha, of Irish extraction, who d. in Shelby Co., 
Ky., and he m. 2d in 1826, Sarah Burton F<jcKt1.i-., daughter of Silas and 
Sarah (Besley) Foursee of Newcastle, Henry Co., Ky., b. Nov. 7, 1805 ; d. 
Apr. II, 1895, aged 89 years. Children by both wives. This family were 


residents in Shelby, Henry, Trimble, and Oldham counties, Kentucky, but 
in 1829 removed to Johnson Co., Ind., and settled on a creek near (now) 
Williamsburg, where they engaged in extensive farming. James MuUikin 
suffered many hardships incident to pioneer life both in Kentucky and 
Indiana. His cabin was of logs without floors. The door was removed and 
used for a table. The tire, in winter, was kindled with flint and steel ; in 
summer, from a dry stump kept burning for that purpose. The family were 
constantly annoyed by wild animals. As the nearest grist-mill was sixty 
miles away, they pounded, or grated their corn into coarse meal. 

James Mullikin was a man of striking appearance and commanding 
presence. He was of stature full six feet, quite corpulent, and weighed 235 
pounds. He had a stentorian voice and remarkable physical strength. His 
eyes and hair were black, and his complexion brunette. He was of a reso- 
lute and determined temperament, and insensible to fear. A farmer by 
occupation. There were nineteen children by his two wives ; six sons and one

of Allison and Sarah Lawman, b. May 7, 1868. Residence, Champaign 
City, 111. He is looked upon as one of the most useful and respected citi- 
zens, and the high position he occupies in the esteem of his compatriots is 
evinced by the honors they have conferred upon him. He served as alder- 
man two years and was elected mayor on the Citizen's ticket in 190 1. As 
Mr. Mullikin is a staunch Democrat and the city strongly Republican, his 
election speaks well of his local popularity. His career as mayor has been 
highly creditable to himself and satisfactory to the people. He has been 
loyal to the interests of the city, has kept abreast of attairs in the commu- 
nity, and fostered every enterprise designed for the public welfare. 

Prior to his settlement in Champaign he followed farming and managed 
a store in Bondville, 111. for several years. Since his residence in the city 
he has engaged in the real estate business as a member of the hrm of Mul- 
likin ^- Martin. They handle farm property, make a specialty of emigration 
business and deal in extensive lands in >Iississippi and Oklahoma. Mr. 
Mullikin is owner of considerable real estate and residence property in 
Champaign, and city property in Indianapolis and Alexandria, Ind. He is 
a self-made man and may be justh' proud of the record he has secured. He

pendent Order of Foresters and of the Elks.

Capt. James Miillikin^ ( 1 ), eldest son of Capt. Thomas and Elizabeth Kilen 
(Williams) Muilikin. was b. on the old plantation at the " Forks of the 
Patuxent," Anne Arundel Co., Md., about 1765-7. He m. for his Hrst wife 
a Miss Pettie, and as he was joint-heir with his brother Benjamin to the 
homestead, we supposed that he lived there, but others believe that he had 
an estate some twenty miles from Baltimore. In the vear iSii, he sold his 
share of " Simpson's Choice " and " Merriton's Fancy," comprised in the 
old plantation, and with his family, household goods in enclosed wagons, 
slaves, and stock removed to Kentucky. It was the springtime. In passing 
from Maryland to Kentuck)- it was neccessary to cross a section of Ohio, a 
free state, and the citizens along the route followed by the Mullikins, threat- 
ened vengeance upon them unless they hurried across the river. The poor 
negroes were terribly frightened, fearing the " Aboiitioners'' would take them 
away, and crowded close to the wagons. Families of Duvall and Terrence 
went with the Mullikins. They crossed the Ohio river from \"irginia to 
Ohio, going down the north bank to Aberdeen, where they waited for favor- 
able weather ; then crossed on a ferry boat to Kentucky. They then fol- 
lowed the old buffalo trail road southward about 25 miles to Mount Tabor, 
where they settled. Here several hundred acres of land were acquired, a 
large log house flanked with enormous stone chimneys, built, and a home 

The county records show that Capt. James Mullikin sold his Mount 
Tabor farm, where " Mullikin's Inn " stood, and conve}ed it by deed to 
Daniel Runnion on May 5, 1S21. This estate comprised 122 acres after he 
had sold a small parcel to the "Union church,'' now •' Mt. Tabor church." 
He lived for a short time, before going to Indiana, in a hollow near one fork 
of Buchanan's creek; and Robert E. Hildreth remembers having attended a 
religious service in the house (now torn down) when a boy. The records 
show that some of the deeds of Captain Mullikin were recorded in Nicholas 
Co., Ky. Tradition says he lost all of his property in Kentucky by '"going 
security " for others ; and his slaves were probably taken from him by pro- 
cess of law. 

The farm of Capt. James Mullikin in Fleming Co., Ky., was about 300 
yards from the old Mt. Tabor church, and on the old state road leading from 
Blue Lick Springs and points beyond, through the Kentucky and Virginia 
mountains, to the eastern markets to which the farmers drove their fattened 
stock to be sold : and there he kept the well and widely known " Mullikin's 
Inn," where the drovers passed the nights and fed their cattle. The old 
house is still standing in very good repair, and occupied by James Ogdon. 

One fork of Buchanan's Creek, called the •• Mount Tabor Branch," flowed 
up on the south side of the Mullikin farm, while Elk creek on the north, 
headed up near the house. 

When the Mullikin family settled on their land near Mt. Tabor church, 
there was only an old log structure and a burying ground there ; but about 

^ i 

s t^ 

o t 



1S23, the citizens of that locality replaced the original building with a brick 
chapel, and Richard and Basil Mullikin helped to make the bricks and did 
other work on the house. It is said that the wife of Capt. Mullikin, being 
an old-fashioned Methodist, used to make the walls of the old log meeting 
house ring with her public exhortations and invocations. 

Among the slaves carried from the old plantation on the Patuxent to the 
new plantation in Kentucky, was a full-blooded Guinea negro purchased of 
the slave-traders. Mary, the slave girl given his daughter, Henrietta Hil- 
dreth, by Capt. James Mullikin, was the child of his Guinea negro. Her 
children's names were : Richard, Henry, Caroline, America and Susan Jane. 
Henry and Caroline are still living, aged respectively 60 and 58 years. 

Three solid silver spoons, on the handles of which are engraved the let- 
ters "J. A. M," are now owned by Robert E. Hildreth of Elizaville, Ky., 
and are highly prized as heirlooms that were handed down in the Mullikin 
family. It is related that Capt. Mullikin, when living in Maryland, was ac- 
customed to go from his home to Baltimore Bay to procure tish and oysters 
for his family, and that a considerable stock of the bivalves were planted 
in the home cellar, and by feeding, were kept for some time. 

Capt. James Mullikin did not return to his early home in Maryland but 
once; in 1S14, he appeared with, a drove of horses and mules which were 
sold to the planters round about ; then went back to the. " Corncracker State" 
and was not afterwards heard from by his kindred, save by a rumor that he 
had removed to Ohio. 

He had married a second wife in Maryland named Axx Duvall,* of an 
old aristocratic family frequently connected with the MuUikins by the bolts 
of wedlock. I)y this union there were not less than nine children of whom 
more presently. She was a woman of tine intelligence and not unconscious 
of the social standing of her ancestors whose prestige she wished to main- 
tain. She was a devout Methodist of the old stamp who exhorted in meet- 
ings and prayed in public and at home. Her children were trained to be 
God-fearing and honest, and she left upon them the ineffaceable impress of 
her own excellent character. 

Tradition says that Capt. Mullikin was, in early life, a chivalrous, dash- 
ing fellow, fond of athletic sports and hunting, and rode to hounds with a 
reckless contempt of danger that challenged the courage of the best horse- 
men in the chase. Brave, ambitious and aspiring, he coveted military honors 
and was commissioned a captain while yet a young man. 

In the year 1S34, with his wife and four younger children, he joined the 
army of emigrants and removed to Crawfordville, Montgomery Co., Ind., 
but subsequently crossed the state line and settled in Illinois, where they 
are said to have passed the remainder of their days. 

*There is a dircrepancy of opinion respecting the maiden name of Capt. James Mul- 
likin's wife. Henry <J. Mullikin of ^Vood\vardville, Md.,\\ho lives on the I'atuxtent plan- 
tation, said her name was Ann Hijuakd. Jessie \\. Mullikin of Ewing, Ky., says her 
name was Susan lIuWARr). James S. Mullikin of Willniore, Ky.. believed her name was 
Eliza Duvall. Koliert E. Hildreth of Elizaville. Ky.. suppo?ed her name was Ann 
Duvall, and finds that she signed her husband's deeds as Ann Mullican. Mr. Hil- 
dreth says a family named Duvall moved from Maryland to KentULky with the MuUikin's 
and settled near them ; and the children of " Capt. Jim," called them "uncle " and "aunt ;" 
but Mrs. Duvall may have been a Howard and a sister of Mrs. Mullikin. The Duvall 
children, cousins of the Mullikins, were named .\[LircHs, Joseph, Edicatd, Thomas, Allie.

1. William MuUikin- ( 1). eldest son of James^ (1), b. in Anne Arundel Co.. 
Md., Nov. 7, 17S9; m. March 2S, 1S16, in Shelby Co., Kj-., Dorcas Krx- 
KADE,* and d. in Montgomery Co., Ind., Apr. 3, 1855. He was grown to 
maturity when, in the spring of 181 1, his father and family removed from 
Maryland to Kentucky. He seems to have settled some distance from his 
parents, in Shelby Co., Ky. The army rolls at franklin. Ky., and the U.S. 
pension records and documents on file at the Auditor's department, Wash- 
ington, D.C., disclose the fact that this William Mullikin enlisted Xov. 10, 
18 14, as a private in Capt. James Ford's Co. of the 13th Ky. Reg. of militia 
for one year, and was discharged May 10, 1S15. He was wounded in the 
left thigh at the battle of Xew Orleans. He moved to Brown's Valley, 
Montgomery Co., Ind., Sept. 12, 1S31, where he cleared his farm and where 
he resided the remainder of his days. His homestead was near the "Old 
Freedom" Baptist church of which he was'an honored deacon, and his wife 
an active member. Both were buried in the " Old Hickory graveyard," 
some two miles north of their home. 

Mr. W. \\\ Stewart, whose father and uncle served in the war of 1S12 
with William Mullikin, informs me that he had a good farm in Brown's town- 
ship ; that his house, part of logs and part framed, was considered to be a 
comfortable pioneer home : that he was of medium size ; that he always lived 
well ; that his wife was small, very enterprising, an excellent cook, and a 
tailoress by trade who, like her namesake, Dorcas of the bible, " made coats 
and garments." Mr. Mullikin was a plain, old-fashioned man, peaceable 
and honest. His house was on the road leading from Crawfordsville to 
Deer Mill, ten miles southwest from the former place. 

On March 23, 1849, ^e applied for a pension and was allowed SS.oo a 
per month. His last payment was made through the Indianapolis agency, 
March 4, 1855. As no widow applied for pension his wife evidently pre- 
deceased him. Children, of whom more with 3d generation, named IVilliatn, 
Preston Carroll, James Galey, Addison, John Kinkade, Hugh, Mary, and 
America. Two d. in infancy. 

2. Adaline Mullikin- (1). eldest daughter of James^ (1), b. at the "Forks 
of the Patuxent " in Anne Arundel Co., Ind., about 1790; went to Fleming 
Co., Ky., with her parents in 181 1 ; was m. to Peter M(jss, and removed. 
some say, to Missouri. She has been lost sight of by her relatives in Ken- 
tucky. Supposed to have had children. 

♦The wife of this William Mullikin was a near relative of the celebrated Christian 
minister, Rev. William Kinkade, so well known throughout the south and west in early 
pioneer days. He traveled extensively for many years, and was the author of a valuable 
book, titled " Kinkade's iJiijle Doctrine." Tradition says he was many times a welcome

Co., Ky., and settled near the famous battle ground on Licking river, where 
the Whites were defeated by the Indians. Here the Mullikins resided the 
remainder of their days as farmers. He was a land and stock dealer, an 
officer, auctioneer, and merchant. He was a slaveholder. In earlv life he 
was employed with his brothers, Richard and Basil, on the great bridge 
that spanned the Licking river. Later he engaged in land speculation, 
acquired an extensive plantation and purchased slaves for its cultivation. 
He lost heavily in consequence of signing a sheriff's bond, but saved some 
money and engaged in merchandising, continuing till he d. in 1S94. His 
wife predeceased him in 1SS4. He was a •' heavy-set man of fair complex- 
ion." The old house in Robertson Co., Ky., where he lived, is still standing. 
Eleven children. See 3d generation. 

7. John Mullikin'- (1), second son of James^ (1), b. say 1S13, near Mt. Ta- 
bor, Fleming Co., Kv. He remained a bachelor for many years and run a 
freight wagon between Mayesville on the Ohio river and Lexington, Ky. 
He finally went to Harrison Co., Ky., where he m. Susax Wolf, but lived 
for many years near the home of his brother Benjamin in Robertson Co., 
Ky. • He returned to Harrison Co., however, late in life and continued his 
residence there until killed by his runaway horses. The rattling of a load 
of poles upon his wagon frightened the spirited animals ; he lost control of 
them, fell under the wheels, and was found dead. John Mullikin was a man 
of originality and something of a wit. A very worthy young man named 
Fox courted one of his daughters and would have married her, but her father 
objected for the reason that there was "enough of wild blood in the family 
already, and he did not believe in crossing the wolf and /f.v." He was about 
75 years of age. Eight children named as follows: Lcivis,Javies, 77io?nas, 
Sa)?iiie/, Barbara, Ellt/i, Xancy and Sara/i. See 3d generation. 

8. Richard Mullikin- (1), fourth son of James^ (1), b. in Fleming Co., Ky., 
18 1 5. Spent his young days on the homestead. He and Basil, his brother, 
assisted in making the bricks for Mount Tabor church, besides doing con- 
siderable other work on the new building. In 1834, in company with his 
parents and a brother and two sisters, he removed to Crawfordville, Mont- 
gomery Co., Ind., where he lived until, with his parents, he crossed the state 
line and settled in Illinois. 

9. Basil Mullikin- (1), fifth son of James^ (l),b. in Fleming Co., Ky., 1S16, 
spent his early days on his father's plantation. When the bridge was built 
across Licking river on the noted Maysville and Lexington turnpike, he 
turned a grindstone for sharpening the workmen's tools at a wage of Si 00 
per month, and scrupulously saved his money to invest in cheap land in 
Indiana and Illinois. With his parents and others of the family he removed 
to Crawfordville, Montgomery Co., Ind., in 1S34, and thence to Illinois. 
Basil was a man of good judgment, prudence, and industry, and acquired a 
handsome estate. 

XoiE. — Many letter- of inquiry were forwarded to the descendants of John Mullikin, 
and the family genealogy requested, but they have not furnished any information ; conse- 
quently, the author is not in the fault. Relatives have said that the sons of John were 
m. and settled near, if not on, his homestead farm at a place called Renaker, in Harri'^on 
Co., Ky., and it is supposed that numerous descendants are still living in that vicinity. 
Samuel Mullikin is reported to have d. from injuries received in a walking match.

The Mullikins of Montgomery Co., McL, were certainly descended from 
that James Mullikin whose name stands at the head of the " Western Shore " 
branch of the family. This James was probably twice m. and we know that 
he had children whose names were not recorded in his will : and these may 
have become the heads of branches settled in other sections of the state. 
We have found several early wills at Annapolis, containing the names of 
Mullikin children who have not been accounted for : and we may assume with 
plausibility that some of the sons reached maturity and were the progenitors 
of families whose genealogical connection with the parent stock has not been 
ascertained. Montgomery Co., to which this family removed, adjoins Prince 
George Co., their place of nativity, and they continued to dwell where com- 
munication was kept up between them and their kindred. 

They had their children baptized in the P^piscopal church and were prob- 
ably communicants of that denomination. After the wide-spread Methodist 
reformation occurred in Maryland, many of the Mullikins were affiliated with 
that church, and their posterity have continued their allegiance with that 

There are several Mullikin wills at Rockville, the seat of Montgomery 
Co., that might disclose some interesting data relating to the genealogy of 
this branch of the family, but every attempt to procure abstracts has failed. 

The Montgomery Mullikins were planters and slaveholders, and their 
descendants are farmers. 

After the American Revolution, in which two at least bore arms under 
Washington, many of the families removed westward and established homes 
on new soil in North Carolina and Kentucky where they acquired extensive 
territorial estates and became successful pioneers, good citizens, and state 

But one son of the first Archibald Mullikin remained on the old Montgom- 
ery "stamping ground," and all who have been found there during the re- 
search for information are his descendants. 

Lewis Mullikin' (1 )• parents names unknown, was descended from James 
Mullikin whose name stands at the head of the '• Western Shore " family of 
Maryland ; probably his grandson. He was b. in Prince George Co., about 
1725-30. His wife was named Marv. They were evidently Episcopalions 
as they had their children baptized in St. John's church of the Piscataway 
parish, where the records (with other Mullikins) were found. In 1754-5, they 
removed to the adjoining Co. of Montgomery, and no later entry appears in 
the St. John's register. He was a planter and held slaves. No records of 
deaths. Children, as far as known, named as follows :

Co. of the 6th Regt., Continental Line, under Col. Mordecai IJuckner. After

live removed to Kentucky and Xo. Carolina, See " Mullikins of Nicholas

John MuUican"' ( 1 ), whose parentage is unknown, may be properly designated 
the head of this branch of the Kentucky family. His descendents are quite 
sure that he was a native of North Carolina, but the author inclines to the 
belief that he was born in Montgomery Co., Md., as this branch of the 
'* Western Shore " family of Mullikins were in the habit of spelling their sur- 
name "MuUican." He was, however, a resident of South Carolina at the 
time of his removal to Casey Co., Ky. He may have been one of the ''twenty 
brothers ' of whom tradition says eighteen reached maturity and became the 
lusty progenitors of a mighty MuUican host in the southern states. It seems 
probable that he was a relative, in no remote degree, of the other MuUikin 
and MuUican families that removed from North to South Carolina ; and we 
know they originated in Maryland. 

The Mullikins were clanish, and this John may have been induced by his 
kinsmen who preceded him, to remove to Kentucky. While investigating 
this man's history, for some time it seemed probable that he and a John 
Mullikin, a soldier of the Revolution who settled in Shelby Co., Ky., were 
identical. Both were in the state at contemporary dates. A more careful 
study of the family records in comparison with data found in the archives 
at Frankfort, Ky., and in the army rolls and pension records at Washing- 
ton, has convinced the author that they were not identical. Although the 
names Mullikin and MuUican were used interchangeably in the public re- 
cords through errors in the spelling by scribes, it is significant that the 
families themselves have universally continued to use the orthography b 
which their immediate ancestors were designated. The posterity of John 
Mullikin who removed from Spotsylvania Co., Va., to Shelby Co., Ky., 
and now so numerous in the west, spell their name Mullikin \ while the 
descendants of the John who settled in Casey Co., Ky., have spelled theirs 
Mu I It can. 

This John MuUican was living in Casey Co., Ky., as early as 1818, and 
is supposed to have come from North Carolina in company with his son 
Solomon several years previous to that date. He was located on Knoblick 
Creek, in the Green river valley and on the county road between Somerset 
and Middleburg. His grandchildren remember the ruins of the foundation 
of his house and of playing in childhood days with fragments of the bricks 
which once composed his chimney. The farm is now owned by Mr. Leslie 
Carman. Polly Elmore, an oracle in the family, says John MuUican went 
to Warren Co., Tenn., with his sons John and \Villiam, but his descendants 
there have no knowledge of his living in that state. His widow, however, 
whose maiden name is believed to have been Nancv Ann Allen, d. at the 
home of her son John in Warren Co., Tenn., when very aged. 

This pair had no less than eight children whose names and history, as 
far as known, will follow. In but few instances, have any vital records been 
found in this family and, consequently, their genealogy will be deficient in 
dates of births, marriages and deaths.

This is a branch of the MuUikin family so early settled in Maryland and 
a descendant, Mr. Joseph Laboon of Georgia, assumes that they were of 
Welsh extraction, a derivation not elsewhere heard of, and probably an error. 
Benjamin Mullikin of Pendleton Co., N. C. says his ancestors were Scotch- 
Irish and that they came from Ireland to Virginia first, but soon removed 
to North Carolina. As there are some reasons for believing that the Mul- 
likins in Maryland removed from Virginia, this tradition relating to the 
North Carolinian branch may be true. It is said that the father of the first 
Benjamin Mullikin who settled in South Carolina had twenty sons of whom 
eighteen attained their majority and settled in different Southern States. 
Some are said to have spelled their surname '* Mullican." I am now strongly 
inclined to the belief that the numerous families named " Millican " and 
" Mullican," so widely scattered in Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee, and 
Texas, are of this stock, for they hold the tradition that their ancestors 
came originally from South Carolina. It will be seen that some small off- 
shoots of the old Maryland family spell the surname " Mullican." 

Benjamin Mullikin, a son of James and Charity Mullikin, was b. in Prince 
George Co., Md. as early as 1740, and removed to North Carolina when a 
young man. He m. Margaret Jarvis, a native of Virginia, b. in 1766, 
within a few miles of Yorktown, and was about fifteen years of age when' 
Conwallis surrendered ( 17S1), and heard the musketry. She was m. about 
1787, and d. near Anderson Court House, S. C, in 1S3S, aged 72 years. 
Mr. Mullikin was a planter and d. where he first sat down, about 1842. 
These had a family consisting of six sons and four daughters viz: /ames, 
IVil/iam, John, Benjaviiii, Samuel, Lewis, jVancy, Polly, Emily and Jenny.

The compiler has found several traditions in this family concerning its 
origin and the original spelling of the surname. An intelligent old lady 
whose clear memory reaches. back to her grandfather, one of the original set- 
tlers in Brunswick Co., X.C, declares without any hesitation that her an- 
cestors came from Maryland, and her statement is probably correct. There 
were plenty of sons in the Maryland family of MuUikens who could have been 
the progenitors of this branch ; besides, we know that cadets of that race 
removed to some parts of North Carolina where their descendants still re- 
main. And this is not the only branch of the old Maryland family whose 
members have changed the spelling of their surname, as will be seen by 
reference to the chapter on surnames. 

This family are tall, rawboned and of fair complexion. They are usually 
freehearted and ready to relieve the distressed when able to do so. None 
of them were slave owners. They were opposed to secession to a man, but 
after the state had gone out of the Union, they embraced the cause of the 
South and with characteristic bravery distinguished themselves on many 
battle fields during the unfortunate fratracidal struggle. 

In politics during Ante Bellum times the Mullikins were old line Whigs, 
but after the war they were members of what was known as the •' Conser- 
vative Party." As time wore on this gradually transformed itself into a 
" Bourbon Democracy," a party so reckless and inconsistent in practices 
that, today, few Millikens can be found in its ranks. Many of them, how- 
ever, are affiliated with the Western or Populist movement. 

Religiously, the Brunswick County Millikens have been Baptists and 

Benjamin Milliken^ (1), parent's names unknown, received a grant of land 
in Brunswick Co., N. C, consisting of one hundred acres lying on and in- 
cluding part of Juniper Creek, date Nov. 1 2, 1 793. The following description 
of the estate was written by William Scott Milliken Esq., a member of this 
family, who is perfectly familiar with the locality. The Benjamin Milliken 
estate consists of one hundred acres lying at the confluence of Juniper Creek 
■which has its rise far back to the eastward in the great "Green Swamp," 
and empties into the Waccaman river, a short distance below the old home- 
stead. The river and creek forming the western and northern boundaries 
of the estate, is crossed bv the river road, a highway established by law. The 
plantation is also crossed by a road owned by the Gardner & Lacy Lumber 
company. The nearest town is the small hamlet called ExcKLStuR, lying 
two miles to the southward. The soil is a sandy formation, the surface gen- 
erally level. The premises have been occupied continuously by the Milliken 
family up to fifteen years ago, when by voluntary sale it passed into the 
hands of a Mr. Inman who is now its owner. The following crops have been 
produced on the land, to wit: corn, peas, sweet potatoes, rice, rye and to- 
bacco, with fair success. Benjamin Milliken was twice m. The name of 


his first wife is not certainly known, but she had a son, John Mi//ikt'ri, 
who went to South Carolina. This woman d. soon after the birth of her 
child, and her husband m. Bktsy Hargrove, by whom he had five sons and 
one daughter, named Bc/ijjuiin, Sdiniu-/, Andrew, Isdijc, Ilczekiali and Anna, 
of whom with 2d generation. 

Samuel Milliken (l), brother of the preceding, received a grant of land, 
Nov. 12, 1793, the same day on which Benjamin's was granted, consisting 
of one hundred acres on the west side of Alligator Creek, two miles from 
its mouth, which is a tributary of Juniper Creek. This land is part sandy 
and part a stitY clay and well adapted to corn, potatoes, rye and tobacco. 
The estate is crossed by a public highway known as the " Big Xecke Road." 
The scenery around this old homestead is very inviting in the springtime 
when the woodland is joyous with the sweet notes of feathered songsters 
so numerous in this section, the surface carpeted with verdant green, the at- 
mosphere freighted with the aroma of a thousand wild tlowers, the tinkling 
of bells, the lowing of cows, the droning of honey-bees, all contributing 
according to their order, to present an aspect truly pleasing to such as love 
natural scenery ; but when the hoar-frost of grim winter comes the scene is 
changed, the verdure disappears and all those features so much in evidence 
in the spring and summer are banished and a dreary loneliness pervades the 
neighborhood. Such was the chosen place of abode of one of the hrst Mil- 
likens who settled in Brunswick Co., N. C. Samuel Milliken's wife's maiden 
name is not known. He had issue : Sajnnel, Alexander, Moses, Sa? ah, Mary, 
Betsey, Kate and Lydia. See 2d generation.

The name has been spelled in no less than three forms by branches of this 
family, and the compiler of this volume is inclined to believe thev were an 
offshoot of the old Mullikin stock so early planted in Maryland, some of whom 
are known to have used the name "Mullican." The records of John Millican 
are found in an old bible now owned by his descendants, and his children's 
surnames are spelled the same: but many of their posterity spell the name 
''Milligan." The derivation of this family is traced, according to tradition, to 
Scotland. The records are incomplete, but such as have been found will appear. 

James Milligan said to have come from Scotland, was early settled in Cecil 
Co., Md., where he owned lands. He had several brothers who were lost 
trace of about iSi2. He removed to Steubenville, O., with wife Mary in 
iSoo. In iSoi, sold lands in Cecil Co., Md., and appointed one David 
Swezy to act as his agent in said county. He d. in Steubenville in 1802. 
He left one or more children in Maryland. He executed a will Nov. 11, 
1797, (now on tile in Steubenville, Jefferson Co., O.) and on Apr. 30, 1802, 
made a codicil thereto ; .will probated May 26, 1S02. He gave son John 
part of his farm and left ^200 in trust for Mary his wife. The tract of land 
owned by this ancestor was called '• Milligans Hill," and is between Aikin 
and Leslie, on the Baltimore and Ohio railroad.

1. John Milligan- (l), son of James and Mary, was b. in Cecil Co., Md., 
May 20, 1762; was m. in Oct. 1794, to Catherine Williams; came to 
Steubenville, O., in 1798, and filled important positions in state and church. 
He was a member of the Constitutional convention in 1802, when Ohio be- 
came a state, and was several times a member of the Legislature ; also sur- 
veyor of the Steubenville Land District, and his compass, made in England,

moved to a farm in 1S16. In 1822, he carried a "call," on horseback, from 
Steubenville, O., to Princeton, X. J., for Rev. C. C. Beatty, D.D., who came 
to the former town and remained until his death in 1883. By his father's 
will, John got part of his farm and ^^200 to hold in trust for his mother, 
Mary Milligan; and received ;/^4o at her death. He d. Dec. 2, 1832, and 
his remains are now in a churchyard at New Hagerstown, O., where they were 
removed in 1858. Children's names will presently appear.

This may be properly called a migratory family, for the earlv generations 
were wandered in the wilderness longer than were'the Hebrews'before reach- 
ing the " Land of Promise." From the time when William Millikan left his 
homein Scotland, or the north of Ireland, and came to Pennsylvania with 
his kindred of the same name, this family have been singularly itinerate 
\\e do not know his motive in coming to America at so early a day in the 
history of the Colonies. He had lived in Chester Co., Pa. a number of 
years surrounded by other families of the same surname, but we do not 
know what degree of relationship existed between them. When the <rreat 
wave of Quaker migration began to move from Pennsylvania southward 
about the middle of the iSth century, William Millikan removed to then 
Rowan count}-. North Carolina, and settled there among many of his old 
Quaker neighbors. 

There seems to have been an inherent unrest in the family. Thev soon 
found themselves in touch with slavery, an institution despised by the 
Quakers. The sandy -pine soil" of their farms that produced abundant 
harvests when hrst broken was soon exhausted by ungenerous husbandry 
and hundreds of acres were abandoned and relinqui'shed again to the domain 
of nature. It has been said that the corn-rows can now be traced through 
groves of pine where were cultivated rields a hundred years ago. The sec- 
ond generation had scarcely settled down to domestic life in their new lo- 
houses when they were tilled with discontent by hearing of almost inter- 
minable tracts of rich " bottom lands," and forests abounding with possums 
and wild turkeys, beyond the mountains in Tennessee. Then these families 
comprising whole neighborhoods, sold out, or abandoned their farms " pulled 
up stakes," and with their children, cattle and household gear turned their 
races westward. 

There were at that time no roads worthy of the name after reachincr the 
mountains, and their experiences of hardships were extremely trying when 
ascending the almost precipitous steeps. 

Teams were disconnected and doubled up while wagons were left be- 
hind ; then they went back and drew the wagons up in turn. When descend- 
ing the steep mountain sides both hind wheels of their wagons were locked 
and trees with all their branches on were chained to the rear end of their 
wagons to impede the velocity of movement and break concussion when thev 
reached the bottom. ^ 

Their horses were galled by the wooden hames in which they drew the 
heavy laden, lumbering wagons along the rough winding roads, and had to 
be turned out among the foothills to heal and rest. During such inter- 
ruptions in their journey the families drew their wagons into a circle, built 
their camphre. in the centre, and waited until they'could resume their on- 
ward march. 

We can fancy these grave and austere fathers and mothers sitting in the 
dim light of their evening fires while weird shadows were cast upon their 


features, bowing their heads in silent prayer before going to rest in their 
long wagons; and their conversation interspersed with their conventional 
"thee," "thy" and "thou." 

Some heads of families had crossed the mountains on horseback the 
year previous, and cleared patches of land and put up log cabins ; others 
had no shelter but their covered wagons till lands were alloted, locations 
chosen, and rude houses built. 

Almost as soon as the families comprising the Lost Creek settlement had 
established themselves on their lands, arrangements were made to provide 
places for worship and schools. John Mills, who m. Sarah Millikan, do- 
nated land for a meeting house, schoolhouse and burial place. A rude 
sanctuary was laid up of hewed timber and a schoolhouse, still standing, 
was built of logs. The laths for this meeting house were split from rift 
chestnut and the shingles, hand shaved, were fastened to the roof with 
wooden pegs in gimlet holes. Oiled paper was used as a substitute for glass 
in the schoolhouse, and the seats were of hewed slabs. Their log houses 
had puncheon floors, and the few boards used for tables and cupboards were 
cut out by hand with whipsaws. 

Here again these peace-loving Quakers were compelled to witness the 
cruelties of slavery. As soon as the wilderness had been opened to the sun- 
light, slaveholders sat down beside them, and the unhunan treatment of 
the poor negroes by their masters was too much to be endured. Many sold 
out or abandoned their farms and removed to Indiana, and to the " Miami 
Country," now in Ohio. The community in Indiana was called the " Ten- 
nessee Settlement," because composed principally of families from that state. 

About this time the Northwest Territory, now in Ohio, was opened for 
settlement and those who had means in the Randolph County Colony, pur- 
chased extensive tracts of land there for their sons. 

It may be asked, " How did the families in those isolated settlements 
hear from their kindred in North Carolina and in Tennessee .'" In answer we 
can only say that the Quaker preachers, being imbued with a warm mission- 
ary spirit, went everywhere to plant the truth — and carry the mail. From 
a bundle of old letters now on my desk, written in the cabins of the Milli- 
kans in the Lost Creek settlement and the Miami Country and carried hun- 
dreds of miles through the wilderness in Quaker preachers' saddle-bags to 
families in Randolph Co., N. C, I tind that the means of communicating 
intelligence were inadequate, and children who had removed to Ohio did not 
hear of their parents death for many months, and then only by letters car- 
ried by some traveling (Quaker preacher. The provisions of a will in which 
legacies were awaiting them were not known to the heirs for months after 
the death of the testator. John Mullikan was not paid his share of the 
money devised to him by his grandfather's will made in Randolph Co., 
N. C. in 1818, until 1S47 ; then one of the e.vecutors made a journey to 
Ohio and faithfully performed his duty. 

After their journevs to C^hio and Indiana, these Quaker preachers vis- 
ited from house to house among their kindred and old neighbors, and dwelt 
with enthusiasm upon their descriptions of the lands, timber, and water 
powers of the " Miami Country." When visiting their kindred in the set- 
tlement at Lost Creek, these wandering preachers told around their hearth- 
stones the same stories of the natural advantages offered to settlers in the 



new territory visited by them. They were the henilds who led on the van- 
guard of settlement; the messengers and mail carriers of a pioneer com- 
munity. In their leathern saddlebags and wallets were carried from the 
sons and daughters who had moved to Tennessee and Ohio, wafer sealed 
letters addressed to their parents in Randolph county, North Carolina. A 
bundle of these old, faded, fingermarked letters, written on coarse, water- 
marked foolscap paper, with their geometric folds and broken red wafers, 
are now upon my desk — mute but impressive links between the old days and 
the new. They were inscribed by toiling hands with quills plucked from 
the wings of wild turkeys, and were perused with trembling lips and stained 
-with the tears of the dear old fathers and mothers ; they have been pre- 
served with sacred care and handed down through six generations of the 
Millikan family to fall, at last, only temporarily, into the hands of the far 
away historian and compiler of this volume. In these old epistles many 
pathetic incidents were recorded, many endearing expressions dictated, many 
loving sentiments expressed, and atlectionate regards conveyed to parents, 
brothers, sisters, and more distant kindred. Much was written descriptive 
of the advantages of the new country, the character of the timber, the 
quality of the soil, the available water powers, the abundance of wild game 
waiting to be transferred from the forest to the bakepan, and the fruits 
spontaneous ; the prices of land, the conditions of payment, the distances 
to mill and market, the quality of the "limewater" and manner of domes- 
tic life. 

Many of the sons and daughters who left Randolph and Guilford counties 
in North Carolina for Lost Creek and the settlements in Ohio and Indiana, 
had looked upon the faces and homes of their parents for the last time. 
In a few instances visits were made on horseback to the old homes in North 
Carolina and Tennessee, but the years had flown and many loved faces and 
forms were not seen. 

.Settlement \\X 'Cost (Treeh, O^enn. 

In the central valley between the French Broad and Holston rivers in 
East Tennessee, is Lost Creek. This stream is fed by springs, flows through 
the valley westward, sinks and runs under Mahoney hill, coming again to 
the surface near the Holston river, of which it forms a considerable tribu- 
tary. The peculiarity of the stream, running under ground, has attached 
to it the name of Lost Creek; and this also applies to the valley. The 
Clinch mountains may be seen in the north, the Bay mountains in the south, 
and a mass of the fag-ends of creation around them in form of ridges and 
craigs. The scenery is wild, rugged and grand, and the climate delightful 
and conducive to health. 

We have no knowledge of the inducement that impelled so many Quaker 
families to remove from North Carolina to the Lost Creek valley — then a 
wilderness. It was necessary for the sons and daughters of the remarkably 
prolific families in the counties of Chatham and Guilford to seek for homes, 
and they turned their longing eyes westward where wild lands were cheap 
and open to settlement. Moreover, these families were nearly all connected 
by ties of blood, and " birthright members " of the Quaker church. 

John Mills, who m. Sarah Millikan, was one of the first who emigrated 


and crossed the mountain wall that separated Xorth Carolina from Tennessee. 
In company with William Millikan. his brother-in-law, he tirst followed the 
west-guiding-trail on horseback and visited the Lost Creek neighborhood 
on a prospecting tour. Like the faithful spies, Caleb and Joshua, who went 
to view the " Land of Promise," anciently, these, on their return to Xorth 
Carolina, brought a good report. It was a land Howing with honey and 
wild turkeys. Fancy paints the picture of the home coming, and the group 
gathered around the wide stone fireplaces in the Quaker homes in Chatham 
county listening to the tales of adventures on the road and descriptions of 
the country, timber, land and water. The soil was pronounced of rich 
quality, the water pure and impregnated with limestone, and wild game 
plentiful. Proprietors of the territory upon which the young families 
contemplated founding new homes were communicated with, terms of pur- 
chaseascertained, and the topic absorbed the attention of the community 
in two counties. Preparations for the departure were hastilv made. Strong 
wagons with lumbering wheels and jingling lynch pins were the primitive 
" Prairie Schooners." The horses were in rude harness, wearing wooden 

John Mills, with his wife Sarah Millikan. removed from Chatham county, 
North Carolina to Lost Creek in the year 17S4. They took their horses, 
cattle, and farming tools with them. 'I^he oldest sons drove the cows and 
sheep. Homespun yarn was carried and the good mothers were knitting 
stockings for their husbands and sons, seated in the jolting wagons as they 
journeyed. When night fell, tires were kindled, kettles suspended on forks 
and wooden cranes, and food cooked. The women and children slept in 
the wagons ; the father and oldest sons upon beds of cedar boughs. They 
were awakened by the gobbling of hundreds of wild turkeys, fed their jaded 
horses, ate the morning meal, and resumed their journey. They then fol- 
lowed the " wilderness road " which, probably, all who removed to Tennesse 
traveled. Starting at Greensborough, they went west to Winston ; followed 
up the river valley to Mt. Airy; crossed the Blue Ridge mountains and New 
river to Abington, Virginia; thence southwest into Tennessee where Bristol 
now stands ; over a sinuous route through the " hill country " near the 
source of the Holston river; then onward to Elizabethton, Jonesboro, and 
Greenville; through Bull's Gap in the mountains to Morristown ; to Mossy 
Creek and then to Lost Creek. 

John Mills left his family at a Quaker settlement in Greene county, and 
taking his older sons, one of whom, William, was then fifteen, and built a 
cabin about one mile and a half east of where Lost Creek sinks under Ma- 
honey Hill. Here they cleared ten acres and planted a crop. William was 
hunter and housekeeper. Soon after the remaining members of the family 
followed, and the new home became an established institution. Old neigh- 
bors and kindred families soon followed from Xorth Carolina, and the 
settlement grew quite rapidly. The heavy forests disappeared, fields ex- 
panded, cabins were multiplied, and peace prevailed. 

In front of the Lost Creek meeting house, south, is the graveyard in a 
grove of cedars. The graves are marked by ^labs of rough sandstone, only 
a few bearing inscriptions. Here many of the Millikans and their kindrel 
rest from their labors while gentle winds sing their requiem in the trees 
above their graves.

PREAMBLE. Three pioneers of the Milliken family sat clown in North Caro- 
lina. We are not dependent upon tradition for our knowledge of their 
existence there. Old documents, public and personal, mirk their footprints 
upon the sands of time. Letters containing many names written bv the 
pioneers, yellowed with age and stained with tears and tinger-marks, have 
been preserved with sacred care ; letters of considerable length pregnant 
with particulars relating to removals and settlements, with dates, which 
establish genealogical connections. Several early wills made by heads of 
families contain many names of children and of those who intermarried. 
Extensive research, however, in l^ennsvlvania and North Carolina fails to 
reveal any information relating to the ancestry of the heads of the three 
great families. The tax-lists of Chester county — some are missing — show 
that from 1739 ^^ ^7^3' seven persons who bore the Milliken name owned 
.estates there; and we naturally inquire how did it happen that so mmy 
Millikens — the surname was spelt in a variety of forms — should have ap- 
peared in this Quaker neighborhood contemporaneously ? Some mutual 
interest must have brought them together, and we reasonably assume that 
they were relatives who had removed from some distant locality. All had 
attained their majority and were Yoemen. As some were designated '"un- 
married," we suppose they were young men. One only, Richard Milliken, 
was called a "Renter." Another, Cieorge Milliken, was styled "Inmate." 
The name Patrick is a hint that points to Ireland as his place of nativity, 
or the home of his ancestors. The name Moses which appears on the tax- 
list from 1753 to 1763, is not common in the Milliken families ; it is of 
frequent occurance, however, in the branch settled in Brunswick Co., N. C, 
but an intelligent old lady down there assumes, without any doubt or hesi- 
tancy, that her grandfather and granduncle were from Maryland. 

The most singular circumstance concerning this group of Millikens in 
Chester Co. was their disappearance from the locality almost simultaneously. 
Whither did they journey ; where pitch their moving tents ? Examination 
of the county records of more recent dates fails to reveal the names of their 
posterity. Like a flock of birds they seem to have risen with one accord 
and flown away. One onlv has been traced with certainty. We know that 
during the great Quaker migration to the South, William Millikan and his 
family went to Rowan, now Randolph Co., N. C. Numerous letters written 
by him have been found, but not in one instance does he mention any Mil- 
likan save his own son, and we have no evidence of the removal with him 
of any person bearing the name. His disceadants have been traced. We 
find the name of a James Milliken on the Chester county taxJist in 1753 
and 1754. Knowing that a person of this name removed from Chester to 
Westmoreland county about this time, we imagine that they were identical, 
but we have no proof. The name of Ceorge Millikan designated "of Ken- 
net, Inmate," appears on the tax-list in 1763. The George Milligan who 



had a grant of land on Chartier's Creek, \\'ashington Co., I'a., in 17S6, 
called " Milligan's Urewerv," mav have been the same ; but proof is wanting. 

It is not reasonable to suppose that these seven men, having reached their 
majority and had acquired estates upon which they paid taxes for twenty 
years, all died issueless; and we have no hesitancy in assuming that they had 
families whose descendants are now living somewhere within our broad 

Turning our attention again to North Carolina, we shall tind that William 
Millikan and Charles Milliken were living in Chatham and Randolph coun- 
ties, adjoining, as no distant neighbors, side-by-side, as many as six/een years. 
Shall we believe that their settlement so near each other was accidental .'' 
Family tradition says that they were intimate in association and that their 
descendants claimed to be relatives. They certainly must have been ac- 
quainted, as William Millikan was a land surveyor and well known in sev- 
eral counties where he served under the agent of Lord Granville. They 
may have been brothers who had emigrated from Ireland at different times 
and were separated for some years until they settled near each other in 
North Carolina. We must leave the family history somewhat in obscurity. 
The citations of evidence as presented seems worth preserving and we record 
it for what it signifies. 

From an extensive correspondence extending to every known family of 
the name, and a study of their temperaments, habits, physical types, busi- 
ness methods, etc., I am more and more impressed with the strong resem- 
blance between the descendants of William Millikan who settled in Ran- 
dolph Co., N. C, and the families settled in Washington, Westmoreland, 
Huntington, Mercer and Juniata counties in Pennsylvania. The niajority 
of the men, especially of the earlier generations, have been tall, rawboned, 
muscular and of fair and medium complexion. They were men of motive 
temperaments and many possessed great natural mechanical ability. Not 
many of the pioneers were educated, but all were fond of reading and were 
well informed. They have not taken kindly to the pen. 
William Millikan, whose parents names and place of nativity are unknown, 
tradition says came with several members of his father's family from the 
north of Ireland and settled in Chester county, Pennsylvania. lie was 
probably born as early as 1720. The name of a William Millikan appears 
on the Tax-list of Chester county from 1739 to 175S, being "crossed off" 
the latter year. A lease of land and buildings passed from John Buffington 
of West Bradford, Chester county, to William Millikan, March 6, 1749. 
From the records of the Orphan's Court in the same county we learn that a 
William Millikan had married Hannah Rowan, daughter of William and 
Elizabeth Rowan of New Garden township; this was of date June 19, 1759. 
William Millikan was a Quaker, lived among Quakers in Chester county, 

XuTK — William Millikan of Miami Co., Ks., about the year 1S4S, assisted in driving a 
herd of cattle over the mountains from Ohio to Philadelphia, and when passing through 
Lancaster, I'a., he met a Millikin from W a.^hiii'iton Co., I'a., and discussed uilh him family 
tradition. Un returning home William's mother told him that hi- grandfather (meaning 
ing his great-grandfather [)rol)aljly) ha^l come over from Ireland with a brother both of 
whom first settled in I'ennsylvania ; but they were se])arated and V.'illiam Millikan re- 
moved to North Carolina. There may be truth in this tradition, for we know that Thomas 
and James Millikin, brothers, who settled in Westmoreland and Juniata Go's., I'a., re- 
moved from Chester Co., i'a. 


Pennsylvania, and when the great Quaker migration to the south was in full 
tide he joined the host and removed to Rowan, now Randolph county, 
North Carolina. 

Many letters written by William Millikan to old friends in Chester Co., 
Pennsylvania, have been found, and abstracts will be published. We know 
that the following documents contains the names of that William Millikan 
who removed to Xorth Carolina, and their character shows that he was a 
man of some prominence.

I am Afraid he will Be brought to a better Vet I do not Care to say Much 
About him tho I am get weary of him Already I Cannot See that he makes 
any progress towards a reformation — I have had his Cash Note for the seven

While. I would take it kind of thee to ask the Bearer hereof As he was 
present and heard Peters plea Which was in my opinion Very weak. 

His Reason is Vastly [)eclined. I have Desired the young man Robert

'ROM The Records of the Orphans' Court of Chester County Pa. 

June 19, 1759. 
"Upon the petition of the widow and children of William Rowan, late 
of the township of Xew Garden, deceased, who died Intestate, it is by this 
court considered that John Allen, John Hurford, Joseph Dixon, William 
Richards, Jeremiah Starr jun and Morris Thomas shall go to all and Sin- 
gular the Mes.-^uages, Lands, Tenements and Hereditaments whereof the 
said Intestate died seized and having due respect to the true value thereof 
shall part and divide the same in manner following, to wit : one third part 
thereof for Elizabeth the said Intestate's widow; two tenth parts of the 
surplusage for William, the Intestate's eldest son ; one tenth part thereof 
for the said Intestate's daughter Mary the wife of Benjamin Hartley; one 


"other tenth part thereof for the said Intestate's daughter Rebecca ; one other 
"tenth part thereof for the said Intestate's daughter Anne ; one other tenth 
"part thereof for the said Intestate's son Joshua: one other tenth part 
"thereof for the said Intestate's daughter Hannah the wife of William Mul- 
" lican ; one other tenth part thereof for the said Intestate's daughter Sarah ; 
"one other tenth part thereof for the said Intestate's son James, and the 
" remaining tenth part thereof for the said Intestate's son Moses ; and how 
"they shall make the division aforesaid they shall make known to next court 
"under their hands and seals." 

After his settlement in Rowan Co., X. C, \^'illiam Millikan was called 
to fill positions of trust commensurate with his abilities. We know he was 
Justly held in high esteem for his estimable character. Through his friend, 
Jas. Marshall of Chester Co., Pa., he had purchased instruments and ex- 
pected to have renumerative employment under Earl Granville who claimed 
to own one-eighth of the Province, as surveyor. At the organization of 
Randolph county, which was composed of parts of Rowan and Guilford 
counties, March 8. 1779, William Millikan was chosen as one of the Justices 
for holding Courts ; and at the same time was elected as Register of Deeds. 
He also served as Clerk of Courts for his county. The tradition in the 
family calls him " a lawyer " and has some foundation in the fact of his doing 
considerable business as acting agent or attorney. 

The land upon which William Millikan lived as a " Squatter " for many 
years was part of the territory claimed by Earl Granville, but his right was 
disputed, a controversy respecting the validity of his title arose, there was 
a resort to arms, the war of the Revolution ensued, the cause was determined 
and all issues turned in favor of the Colonists : then all lands remaining 
unsold became a part of the public domain and was subject to entry. 

After the Revolution, Nov. 2, 1784, William Millikan secured a land 
grant comprising four hundred acres on Back Creek. This became his farm 
and is still in possession of his descendants. Two years previously his 
house was burned by Tories and the following abstract from a character 
sketch of Col. David Fanning written by Rev. E. W. Caruthers, will be of 
interest to the Millikan family: 

"On Sunday, March 10, 1782. Fanning went to the house of William 
Millikan Esq., who li\ed on Back Creek, about two miles from Johnsonville, 
on the old cross road. As Millikan was away (It is said that he was driv- 
ing his cows hofne and discovered Fanning in time to hide) from home 
they burned his buildings and destroyed everything they could. While the 
house was on hre, Mrs. jane Millikan carried out a favorite feather bed, but 
they carried it back and threw it on the tire. When the bed began to burn, 
they twisted a stick into the feathers and scattered them over the house. 
When the blazing feathers, as they liew in every direction through the room, 
caught in a bundle of varn which was hanging on the wall, they taunted 
Mrs. Millikan and said : " ' Look at your yarn old woman.' " When leaving 
Millikan's they compelled his son, Benjamin, to go along and pilot them to 
the house of Col. John Collier * * * *. Fanning came up after night. Col- 
lier was asleep, but before he lay down he put a young man out as sentinel 
on a pile of rails a few rods from the door. Fanning made (Ben) Millikan 
answer that they were friends." 


There is a tradition that Col. Fanning took Benjamin Millikan and an- 
other young man out to hang them, and that while they were stringing the 
other up to the branch of a tree, Benjamin managed to escape. There are 
men now living { 1903) who remember having seen the stump of the tree on 
which the young man was hung. 

During the Revolution William Millikan was living on the west side of 
the " Plank road," south of Newmarket, but after the burning of his house 
he took up his abode with his son Samuel. He was a zealous Quaker, an 
advocate of liberty, and took an active part in civil affairs of the county. 
He enjoyed in an eminent degree the esteem and contidence of the public. 

William Millikan m. f axe White who was probably a daughter of Alex- 
ander White of Chester Co., Pa. As he did not make a will the time of his 
death is unknown, but he was not living in 1805. There were no less than 
seven children named as follows : 

1. William Millikan-. m. Eleanor Smith, Aug. 10, 1765. 

2. Samuel Millikan-', m. A.vx Baldwin, June 10, 1767. 

3. Alexander Millikan-, removed to Georgia. 

4. B3njamin Millikan-, m. Rebecca Rush, May 4, 1776. 

5. Sarah Millikan-, m. John Mills, Jan. 2S, 1768. 

6. Mary Millikan-, m. Robert Brittan, Jan. 6, 176S. 

7. Hannah Millikan-, m. Enos Blair, May 10, 1775. 

.^cconb feneration. 


I. Samuel Millikan- (1), eldest son of William^ d), b. in Chester Co., Pa., 
Dec. II, 1742, was carried by his parents "when a small boy" to Rowan, 
now Randolph Co., X. C. He was m. according to the Quaker forms, 6th 
mo. 10, 1767, to Ann Baldwin, daughter of William and Elizabeth Baldwin ; 
so say the records of the New Garden ( N. C. ) monthly meeting. 

From a certificate given by the monthly meeting held at New Garden, 
Rowan count)-, Province of North Carolina, 29th day of 9th month, 1764, 

TuK Baldwin Fant n.\ . — Thi^ is an English surname The ancestors of this fainilv are 
said to have removed from Pennsylvania to Virginia. They rir>t settled, as Quakers, at 
the Hopewell monthly meeting, near Winchester, in Frederick county. According to 
Weeks' " Southern Q'^^'^^''"' ^"f' Slavery," a Laid win was the //r.-/ Quaker to settle in 
North Carolina; he located at Cane Creek monthly meeting in the southwestern part of 
Alamance county, having emigrated from Hopewell, Virginia, between 1751 and 1754. 
Stephen Macy, a son-in-law of Jialdwin's has said Lsome thirty years ago): " Some man 
settled east of Guilford (X.C.) five miles and thought he was farther west than any other 
man, l)ut went out hunting one afternoon, and heard a bell and went to it and found it on 
a cow ; so he followed the cow and she led him to this lialdwin's cal;ln which wa- west of 
bis own clearing. The farm is now owned by Mr. Albert Peeie. Some of the Paldwin's 
remained at Hopewell, and the Quaker records there show that a certificate of removal 
was grai.ted to one of the name between 1^24 and i.SzS, to go to the Whitewater, Indiana 
monthly meeting. .N'though the Pakluins were Quakers, a brother of Ann Laldwin's 
served in the Ke voluti'.iiai y army, having evidently been a " Free Q)uaker." The otiicial 
Register of (Jtncers of the Continental arnu does not show any one of this name from 
North Carolina, but does show two from Virginia — Surgeon Cornelius Paklwinand Ijisign 
Francis Baldwin. The Revolutionary soldier may have been Jesse Baldwin, .Ann's 


we learn that this Samuel Millikan returned to Pennsylvania that vear and 
was " clear of any marriage engagement." He received a certiricate from 
the monthly meeting at P.radford, Chester county, Pennylvania. ijth day of 
the 4th month 1765, addressed to " F'riends of New Garden monthly meet- 
ing, North Carolina," and at that time returned to his southern home. This 
also stated that so far as known '• after needful inquiry made " he was free 
from any " marrege Ingaigements." In a letter by his father dated New 
Marlborough, North Carolina, June 10, 1763. and addressed Humphrey Mar- 
shall of Bradford, Pennsylvania, he says, " Mv son came home the 2 2d of 
May. He desires to be remembered to you as also to vour father and mother. 
I am highlly pleased with your kind and friendly reception of the bov whilst 
among you all, and shall be glad to have it in my power to make a grateful 
return according to my station." 

On Nov. 2, 1784, Samuel Millikan received a grant of land consisting 
of 554 acres on the waters of Little Uwarrie river in Randolph county. 
North Carolina, and record of the same may be found in the Book of Claims 
No. 18, page 229, at Raleigh, N. C. He seems to have first settled near 
the Marlborough meeting house, a short distance from the present town of 
Ashborough. By his will he devised to his son \\'illiam two hundred acres of 
land known by the name of the "Old Place whereon I once lived near the 
Marlborough Meeting House." At a later date he had moved to a farm 
near the Springtield Meeting House, then in Randolph, now in Guilford 
county, close to the line and not far from High Point. His name frequently 
occurs in the Quaker records ( now stored in the vaults of Guilford Col- 
lege) in connection with the Springfield monthly meeting, and as a business 
man. Some of his descendants assume to say his business was the manu- 
facture of wagons, agricultural implements and edged tools, his shop being 
at Guilford Court House village. No mention of a plant of this kind is mace 
in his will, but it does indicate that he was quite extensively engaged in 
farming. He must have been a man of considerable means as evidenced by 
letters from his sons in Ohio, and his v.dll made the iSth day, the 2d month, 
18 1 7, and now on file at Ashborough, N. C. Besides the bequest to his son 
William already mentioned, he made disposition of his estate as follows : 
"To the heirs of my son John (deceased) one hundred acres of land in the 
state of Ohio on Whetstone Creek, the waters of the Sciota ; also one hun- 
dred dollars in money to be equally divided among them when the young- 
est should reach the age of 21." "To my son Benjamin 60 acres of land 
known as the Pine Tract adjoining the lands of Joshua Holliday, he having 
already received a title to 200 acres as part of his share." "To my son 
Jesse the notes held on Eleazer Beals (testators son-in-law) for a tract of 

brothtr, who was a superior man and a credit to his family. William Mullikan of Wash- 
ington Coiirl, ' »hio, now 96 years of age, (1903) has seen him and conversed with 
him. A long letter from this Jesse lialdwin, dated " North West 'I'erritory, Ross County, 
May the 21st, i^co," addressed to his parents, William lialdwin, Guilford County, North 
Carolina, shows tliat he was then living on .Sciota river. In concluding his epistle he 
sign-. " Je.->e and Il.inr.ah lialdwin To clear old Father Baldwin, Oaniel and Marv, Uriah 
and Hannah, John and Jeremiah, Joshua and Elizabeth. Richard and his beloved children, 
.Samuel and .Ann, (Millikan^ William Millikan and Hannah, Cousin KnOb Blair and Han- 
nah, Jess Williams and Sarah." His farm was on "The Sciota at the head of Salt creek 
on I'lum run'' — to which locality he moved soon after " William Mullikan returned from 
the (.)hio." 


land I purchased of John Roddock amounting to four hundred and twenty- 
five dollars ; also Jioo in money." "To my son Samuel, the tract of land 
whereon I now live for the support of my loving wife during her widow- 
hood." He also gave Samuel all his live stock and farming tools and half 
of the household furniture. The other half of the furniture was given to 
his wife and at the end of her widowhood to be equally divided between 
his five daughters. All of his other lands were to be sold by his executors 
and the monev arising therefrom and all notes and money on hand to be 
equally divided between his wife and nifie childn-n. 

He further bequeaths to his boy, Absoloni Griffin, (probably a "bound" 
boy) the tract of land purchased of Willam Frazer, called the Frazer place, 
provided that in the event of Absolom's death without heirs, it should be 
sold with the residue of the estate. He also gave to Rosanna Leech (prob- 
ably a " bound " girl) one cow and calf. 

That Samuel Millikan w^as actively engaged in the cause of emancipating 
the slaves was shown by the veneration in which his name was held by 
some negroes he had helped to free in North Carolina, and who had settled 
in Ohio. When they met John Millikan (the old editor) and learned that 
he was Samuel's grandson they could not prostrate themselves lov.' enough 
to adequately express their delight and gratitude. 

He appointed his brother Benjamin, and sons Benjamin and Samuel, 
his executors, and we know that they faithfully performed their duties, even 
making a journey to Ohio and Indiana to pay the money due to the children 
of his son John. 

Samuel Millikan died in iSiS, and his widow removed to Indiana with her 
daughter Ann, the wife of Rev. Eleazer Bales, with whom she lived until 
her death near Mooresvilie, Morgan Co., Ind. There were five sons and 
five daughters of whom more with 3d generation. 

I. William Millikan- (2), second son of William' (1), b. in Chester Co., 
Penn., as early as 1754, was but four years of age when his parents removed 
to Rowan Co., X. C. He m. Aug. 10, 1776, EleaX(jr Smith of Guilford 
Co., N. C, and settled on a grant of 400 acres, not far distant from New 
Salem, where he was employed as farmer, blacksmith, and land surveyor ; 
and some old "land plats" and "field notes," still in the family, show that 
he was a scientific man. 

He crossed the Great Smokey mountains in 1792 and settled on a tract 
of land in northwestern Tennessee, near Morriston, (three miles northwest) 
and the site of his dwelling commanded a view of the Clinch mountains ten 
miles north, and the great Smokey mountains forty miles south. The lands 
are somewhat hilly, but overlook a fertile valley near at hand. There is 
a cool spring of limestone water on the east and a rill winds down to mingle 
with other spring-streams on their way to the great Holston river. 

His house was built of large chestnut logs, hewed square, and was on the 
ground plan 20x30 feet, two stories, with a large cellar underneath. I'hfre 
were also two porches of two stories on the north and south sides, and tlie 
large chimneys were laid up with limestone rock. A spacious building '.-f 
one room, used for a kitchen and dining-room, stood near the principal dwel- 
ling. Some parts of this house has stood the wear and tear of time more 
than a hundred years, and may still be seen. 


William Millikan remained on his farm until after the death of his wife, 
Feb. 5, I S3 7, but spent his last days in the home of his son-in-law, Jesse 
Howell, where he d. Sept. 2, 1S3S, aged S4 years. They were buried in the 
Fxonomy graveyard not distant from their home, but no inscribed monuments 
mark their place of rest — only rude, natural stones. He was a man of enor- 
mous size, weighing not less than three hundred pounds. His eyes were 
blue, his hair rather light, and his complexion fair and dorid. 

Mr. Millikan was not known to have used the land surveyor's instruments 
after his settlement in Tennessee, but he had a blacksmith's and gunsmith's 
shop near his house, where he made farm implements and guns, and did 
some work as a silversmith. A coin silver sleeve button made by him is 
now owned by John S. Howell, his grandson. He also owns and uses a 
large arm-chair once owned by this William Millikan ; the sturdy posts are 
of sugar wood, nicely turned, and the rungs of best hickory. The seat is of 
split white oak. William and Eleanor had thirteen children, of whom more 
with 3d generation. 

3. Benjamin Millikan- (1), third son of William^ (1), b. in Chester Co., 
Penn., Jan. 21, 1755, was but three years of age when the family migrated 
to North Carolina in 175S. He m. Rkbecca Rush, May 4, 1776. She was 
b. Oct. 21, 1760. By this union there were eleven children. Benjamin in- 
herited his father's homestead farm on Back Creek which was part of the 
original grant of 17S4 to William Millikan, his father. He made his will 
March 25, 1S34, but I have no record of his death. His widow, when 83 
years of age, was carried by her daughter, Mrs. Abigail Commons, to Indi- 
anna, where she died.* They were devoted members of the (Quaker Society, 
used their language and dressed in their garb. He was buried in the 
Marlborough Quarker churchyard. 


" I Benjamin Millikan of the State of North Carolina, Randolph county ; 
considering the uncertainty of this mortal life, and being of sound mind and 
memory, (blessed be Almighty God for the same) do make and publish this 
my last will and testament, in manner and form following, (that is to say.)

This will Avas v/itnessed by Peter Rich, Alfred Davis and John Rich. 
There are no seals on the document nor record of probate, and he may have 
made a subsequent will. For children's names see 3d generation. 

4. Alexander Millikan- (1), fourth son of William' (l), b. in Chester Co., 
Penn., in 1757 ; was an infant in arms when his parents removed to North 
Carolina. He went to Lost Creek, Jefferson Co., Tenn., with the family of 
his brother William and other relatives in 1792, and removed thence into 
Georgia where he became a wealthy planter and the owner of manv slaves. 
He was m. but d. issueless. His Quaker kindred in North Carolina and 
Tennessee did not hold him in fellowship because of his slave-holding, and 
his name would have been lost to the family but for an old lady, now in her 
94th year, his grandniece, who relates that this Alexander* wished to make 
her father, who had been named for him, the present of slaves as a tangeable 
expression of his regard, but Alexander Millikan, the namesake, refused to 
become a slaveholder, and the offer was rejected. The compiler has made 
diligent inquiry in many counties in Georgia, but has failed to tind any de- 
scendants or the name of his wife. 

6. Sarah Millikan- (1), daughter of William' (1), b. in Chester Co., Penn., 
as early as 1748-50, but the order of her birth as compared with the other 
children has not been ascertained. She was m. according to the Quaker 
formula at New Garden Monthly Meeting, Guilford Co., N. C, Jan. 28, 
1 761, to John- Mills, son of John and Rachel (Bates) Mills, and resided 
in her state until 17S4, when, with her husband and children, she removed 
to Lost Creek, now in Jefferson Co., Tenn. John Mills was a weaver by 
trade, and had a mill on his farm for fulling his cloth. He left part of his 
family at a Quaker settlement in then Greene Co., and with his oldest sons 
built a cabin about one and a half miles east of the place where Lost Creek 
sinks under Mahoney Hill. They cleared ten acres and planted for a crop. 
William, a son, was hunter and housekeeper. Soon .^Irs. Mills and her 
younger children followed. Their nearest postoffice was Greenville, sixty 
miles away. The first meetings of the Quakers in the Lost Creek settle- 
ment were held at the cabin of John Mills. He d. at Lost ("reek and was 
buried in the graveyard by the Quaker meeting house. Mr. Mills was a

seems probable that the name Alexander came from her family. There were Alexander 
Whites in Chester Co., Pa., and in Randolph Co., N. C 


pioneer and one of the most useful persons in the settlement. One tradition 
makes Sarah Millikan Mills d. at Lost Creek : another, in Indiana. I hnd 
in an old letter of date " Lost Creek, JetTerson Co., Tenn., inth-ioth-iSiy - 
the following statement: -Aunt Sarah Mills is in a common state of health- 
we saw her at meeting today." She had eleven children named as follows :'

desk an old letter of date 19th, loth, 1S17, forwarded from Lost 
Creek to Samuel Millikan in Randolph Co., X. C, in care of this 
\\ ilham Morgan. They had seven children whose names are known

Blair Family. This is a surname of great antiquity in Scotland, and ter- 
ritorial in origin. The word Blair or Blar signifies a plain, clear of woods, 
but as such localities were chosen for hostile encounters this word came to 
signify a battlefield. The family of Blair or Blar in Scotland, has main- 
tained a high position in that country since the 13th century. Numerous 
branches of the same parent stock have become distinguished both in Great 
Britain and America. Some of this name removed to Ireland at the Plan- 
tation of Ulster and many of their descendants emigrated to the United 
States long before the American Revolution. Some sat down alongside of 
their Scotch-Irish neighbors with whom they had intermarried, and repre- 
sentatives of their posterity have filled high ofhcial positions in the clerical, 
legal, medical and political professions in New England. Others settled in 
Pennsylvania and Ohio and their sons removed to the Carolinas and other 
Southern and Western States. 

Colbert Blair and Sarah Blair, his wife, migrated to North Carolina from 
Pennsylvania about 1754-55 and settled in Burke county now Caldwell. 
Colbert Blair was a Quaker and said to have been one of the followers of 
William Penn, but went south with the great tide of Quaker migration in 
the middle of the iSth century. He had four sons, Enos, John, Colbert, 
and James. John Blair settled in Burke county and had issue ten sons and 
four daughters, and their progeny is legion. Colbert Blair Jr. went west, 
and is lost to history. James Blair was killed in the battle at Ramseur's 
Mills in the Revolution. Enos Blair settled in Randolph Co., N. C, and m. 
Hannah Millikan, daughter of William Millikan, and had issue seven sons 
and four daughters whose names appear above. John Blair, son of Enos 
and Hannah, married Elizabeth Tomlinson who was the daughter of Samuel 
and wife Annie, whose parents were Thomas English and wife Margaret 
Flynn, who were married in England and setttled in Camden, S. C. Mar- 
garet Flynn was first cousin of Lord Cornwallis. Colbert Blair's wife was 
Sarah Morgan, a neice of the illustrious pioneer. Daniel Boone, who was 
descended from George Boone from Devonshire, England. See note on the 
Boone family. 

Going back to John Blair, son of Enos and Hannah Millikan, who with 
his wife Elizabeth Tomlinson lived on the head waters of the Little Uwarrie 
in Randolph Co., N. C, we note that he was b. July 5, 1800 ; his wife was 
b. Jan. 17, 1796. He d. July 12, 1859; wife d. June t^q, 1S62. These had 



several sons, amongst them Samuel, Solomon, Benjamin and Hon. Joseph 
Addison Blair, a distinguished lawyer and writer' of Ashboro, X. C., who 
says he had rather be a poet than a President. 

_ Tradition says the Millikans and Blairs were related bv intermarriages 
in Ireland, and in Pennsylnania, long before their removal to Xorth Caro- 
lina, but we have no record of such alliance. It will be seen that Thomas 
lorn linson, son of Samuel and Annie ( English) Tomlinson, married Mary 
MUhkan, daughter of Samuel and Ann ( Baldwin) Millikan ; also that Samuel 
L blair, son of John and Elizabeth, married Marv, daughter of Benjamin 
and Margaret Miliikan, also that John A. Blair, son of lohn and Elizabeth 
niarried Emily A Millikan, daughter of Samuel and Mary Millikan. Thus 
the blood of the Blairs and Millikans has comingled for generations and 
both currents arising from ancient fountain-heads in Scotland have riowed 
across seas to Ireland and America until, today, thousands of descendants 
are animated by its red, rushing, heroic qualities.

As his widow, she applied May 11, 1878, for pension. Elihu Millikan -rew 
to manhood on his father's farm near Morristown and fought under Jack- 
son at New Orleans. Of his religious experience little is known until he 
appears as a Baptist minister. His father was a Quaker and his mother a 
ealvinist. By searching the Scriptures soon after his conversion he em- 
braced his mother's creed and united with the Baptist denomination He 
was supposed to have been baptised by Elder Isaac Burton, then pastor of 
the " Bethel South " Baptist church, now known as the " Morristown First " 
Ihis church licensed him to "exercise a public gift," and bv authority of 
the same body he was ordained Sept. 18, 1825. He was pastor of Mossv 
Creek church for seven years and of the Buffalo church in Gran-er Co' 
Tenn. nearly a quarter of a century, resigning Oct. 3, 1S59, on account of 
the infirmities of old age. At one meeting during this pastorate the church 
had an accession, «• by experience and baptism " of ninetv-nine members out 
of ninety-nine who professed conversion. This was known as the " Routh- 
Jones Meeting." He was frequentlv called into councils for the ordination 
of ministers, the settlement of discords and recognition of new churches • 
as well as to attend, everywhere, "sacramental," " protracted," and "camp- 
meetings." In the records of the organization and recognition of the First 
i^aptist church of Knoxville, Tenn., Jan. 22, 1S43, the name of Flihu Milli- 
kan appears. 

Jesse Hill, aged 93, living near Mossy Creek, knew Elder Millikan as 
tar back as 1828, and said : " He was the principal preacher in this re-ion 
ot country; was a missionary and an able man." William Haynes said • 
"Brother Millikan was a strong doctrinal preacher and was successful in 
revival meetings. He had a good influence in the community. People had 
confidence in him and he built up the Baptist cause." Uncle Sammie West 
said, speaking of Elder Millikan s wonderful voice: "I heard him preach- 
ing one night from the Buffalo church to mv house, a distance of two miles 
air course." 

He was fervent and effective in prayer and devoted to the old sonars 
of Zion. It was his uniform practise to sing before the final benediction: 


" Dismiss us with thy blessing. Lord, 
Help us to feast upon thy word; 
All tliat has been amiss forgive. 
And let thy truth within us live." 

Old uncle Jerry (colored), living at the Millikan place near Lea's Springs 
in Grainger Co., who was waiting boy to the Elder, catching his horse for 
him to ride to his meetings, was a Baptist and bore this testimony to his 
former master : " He always fed and clothed well, and had reasons about 

A little while before he died some friends were singing the old familiar 
hymn : " How rirm a foundation ye saints of the Lord," and coming to the 
words: "I'll never, no never forsake," he clapped his hands and exclaimed: 
" No, he never will I He never will !" He was buried by the side of his wife 
near Lea's Springs, Grainger Co., Tenn. On his tombstone is this inscrip- 
tion : " Rev. Elihu Millikan died Dec. 21, 1864, aged 79 years and 15 days. 
Them that sleep in Christ will God bring with him." For his children's 
names see 4th generation. 

8. Alexander Millikair' (2). sixth son of William- (2), b. in Guilford Co., 
Tenn., Nov. 12, 1789; m. Sept. 22, 1809, Elizabeth Russell, daughter of 
John and Eleanor Russell, who was b. in Tennessee, Aug. 10, 1793, and d. 
May 5, 1854. He was carried by his parents to Lost Creek, Tenn., in 1795, 
and when he grew to manhood settled on a farm a few miles west of Morris- 
town, Hamblen county, where he remained until 1S38, and where his chil- 
dren were born; he then removed by wagon to Henry Co., Ind. His aged 
parents died at his home while living in Tennessee and were buried near 
Morristown. He was a member of the Society of Friends, and a man of 
kindly and generous impulses whose benevolence was almost boundless. 
He was very decided and courageous and manifested great strength of 
character. When his older brother, David and his wife, became aged and 
incapable of longer gaining support — ^they were childless — he went to Ten- 
nessee, brought them to his home in Indiana, provided for them the remain- 
der of their days and gave them a Christian burial. Alexander lived to the 
great age of 93 years and d. Aug. iSSo, in Henry Co., Ind. During his 
last days he became feeble-minded and did not know the members of his 
own family. He had issue thirteen children of whom with 4th generation. 

9. William Millikan^' (3), seventh son of William- (2), b. in Guilford Co., 
N. C, Nov. 12, 1789, was twin to Alexander. He was carried to Tennessee 
in 1795 ; m. Rebecca Elmore and settled first in the neighborhood of his 
father's home, but later went to Ohio — so says his nephew, John Howell of 
Tennessee — where he is supposed to have raised a family. From an exten- 
sive correspondence I have found no reliable information concerning this 
man or of his family. One nephew is quite sure that he settled in Indiana, 
but relatives in that state have no knowledge of his living there. Unwil- 
lingly I must leave his history for others to investigate. 

10. Samuel Millikan'' (2), eighth son of William- (2), b. in Guilford Co., 
N. C, Feb. 29, 1792; m. Feb. 23, 1817, Clarissa S. Keen, and settled near 
Morristown. He subsequently followed his brother Eli to Ohio and lived 
some time in Wilmington county. He finally removed to Chester Township, 
Wells Co., Ind., where he built a water sawmill on the Salamona river about 


1849. He also had a shop in which he worked as a blacksmith. He owned 
a good farm, and farming was his principal occupation. His wife, b. Aug. 

10. 1796, d. June 13, 1S50. He m. for second wife, Oct. 14, 1S50, Martha 
Tate. He d. on his farm Jan. 29, 1S73, aged So years and 11 months. 
Samuel Millikan served for many years as a justice of the peace, and was a 
man of upright character and commanding influence in his community. They 
were buried in theTwibell cemetery one-half mile north of Montpelier, Ind. 
There were eight children, all by first wife, of whom with 4th generation. 

11. George Millikan-' (1), ninth son of William- (2), b. near Panther Springs, 
Hamblen Co., Tenn., June 24, 1794; m. Jan. iS, 1831, Elizabeth Coffmax, 
who was b. in Hamblen Co., Tenn., Oct. 29, 1795, being the daughter of 
Andrew and Elizabeth Coftman, who lived three miles north of Morristown 
in Grainger, now Hamblen county. Mr. Millikan was a blacksmith and 
farmer, and lived on a section of his father's land. He d. there Aug. 19, 
1S64, aged 70 years. They were buried in Economy cemetery. Their chil- 
dren were ten in number. See 4th generation. 

12. Hannah Millikan' (2), third daughter of William'- (2), b. in Hamblen 
Co., Tenn., Aug. 26, 1796; m. William Caxadv and removed to Indiana at 
the time of the migration of her brother to that state, and was living near 
Newcastle in a comfortable home when visited by John Howell of Tennessee, 
in 1865. Mrs. F'zekiel Cast of Ohio, also remembers Mrs. Canady as she 
saw her when visiting relatives in Indiana many years ago. She was de- 
scribed as a tall woman and of a fair complexion. Several children. 

13. Eleanor Millikan' (1), fourth daughter of William- (2), b. near Panther 
Springs, Hamblen Co., Tenn., March 27, 1800; m. Sept. 12, 1820, Jesse 
Howell, son of Caleb and Precilla Howell, natives of North Carolina, b. 
Feb. 22, 1799, and d. Feb. 24, 1S71. She d. March 25, 1875. Her place 
of residence was four miles west of Morristown, Tenn., in the Newmarket 
Valley. Her son, John S. Howell, writes of the farm on which his parents 
lived: ".It was then a barren country destitute of water and without much 
timber ; we now have plenty of cisterns of good water, and ponds for our 
stock. The land is good and rather level. A railroad now runs through 
the farm." Eleanor was tall and had fair hair and complexion. Her chil- 
dren were named as follows : Haiuiah, Mi??ia, Ama/u/a, Caroline, Williavi, 
Eleanor ^.nd Jo/m S. They have not found a family record.

pioneer in Indiana, having removed in 1816, traveling with his wife and 
two children all the way with a single horse and wagon. Two of his broth- 
ers and a sister went to Indiana and settled the same vear. The red soil 
farms in Randolph Co., N. C, had become worn out and unproductive, and 
hnding good land at a moderate price in Indiana, many families -pulled up 
stakes and migrated. When he reached his destination he had but twent^- 
five cents left, and bought with it a Dutch oven for the bread-bakin- His 
family doniiciled in a shanty built on -forks" until he built a log^house 
Al of the floorings were split with an ax or handsaw. Grain was ca^rried to 
mill on horseback by blazed trees. Ten acres of land were cleared in winter 
for cultivation the following summer. In the vear 1845, he built a two- 
storied timber house, which was weather-boarded'and ceiled, four miles from 
the \\ abash river. On the north was the road from Howard to Annapolis • 
on the east was the Montezuma and Covington road; and near, the town 
of bylvania. Nearly all who composed the community were Ouakers and 
a meeting house was soon built for worship. Peace and harmony prevailed.

X. C, Apr. I, 1773; m. Haxxah and removed to Ohio* with his 

brothers John and Jesse about 1S03-4. An old letter found amongst Mil- 
likan family papers in X^orth Carolina, throws some light upon his situation, 
and as others related are mentioned, it shall be subjoined. 

♦The witnesses to the marriages of Elizaljeth and Jane were Benjamin Millikan, 
William Millikan, Samuel Millikan and Ann Millikan, the two last being parents. 

Note. — That these three brothers (John, Jesse and William) were still connected with 
the Society of Friends when they left S'orth Carolina, is shown bv the fact that they were 
granted certiticates of removal by the Springiield Monthly Meeting. Weeks' " Southern 
Quakers and Slavery " shows that between 1604 and iSio, one or more Millikans were lib- 
erated to go to the Sllami Monthly Meeting, in Warren countv, Ohio: between 1S03 and 
1832, to go to other meetings in < )hio: and a .Millikin, between'181 1 and 1832, to go to the 
White Water Monthly .Meeting, in Wayne County, Indiana. This book does not give 
exact dates, nor given names ; but since .Albert Peele writes us that it was William .Milli- 
kan who was liberated to go to the .Miami M. M., it follows of necessity that he was the 
one first above named, the second was his brother Jesse, or John, or both, and the la^t 
their mother. 

It is more than doubtful if any of these three brothers ever presented his certificate 
of removal to any Mjiithly Meeting, or ever identined himself in any way with the Quak- 
ers after leaving North Carolina. Their going west with the great tide of Q>uaker migra- 
tion from North Carolina, which began in 1800, was doubtless due to the spirit of adven- 
ture in young men, and to their desire to better their condition, rather than to any more 
sentimental considerations.

I now have an opportunity of Informing you that we are all well except 
myself; this pain in mv breast still continues. We received thy letter which 
informed us of thy helpless situation which was affecting to hear. Thy let- 
ter informed us that the rest of the family were well. I would wish to come

then they went on toward the state of Ohio. I have purchased sixteen hun- 
dred acres of land ; some of it cost S4. per acre, and some cost $3 per acre 
and some cost two dollars per acre, but I am some in debt for it though I 
hope to pay for it before it is forfeited. We are well satisfied with our move 
to this country. We have had another son born last month and we call his

John Millikan of Crown Point, Ind., writes: "In the fall of 1S60, while 
on my way from Laporte to New Albany via the Xew Albany X: Salem R. R., 
a gentleman informed me as we passed through Bedford, Lawrence Co., 
Ind., that a certain tine dwelling house he pointed out to me was once the 
home of my uncle William Millikan. I am not certain about it, but I think 
the gentleman's name was Hockett, and he was a relative." 

A long and careful search through correspondence supplemented bv 
several inquiries published in the Indiana newspapers has failed to find the 
descendants of this Millikan. That he had children we know from his own 
letter, but all may have died.

York in 17S7, daughter of Xathaniel and Ann Wyatt*, and descended from 
an old and distinguished family in Virginia. Her father served for five 
years as an officer in the Revolution. John Millikan removed to Ohio as 

♦Wvatt Family. Xathaniel Wyatt and his wife Ann Brundige were nati%es of Xew 
York City, or the suburbs thereof, and removed to the- West about the year 1S02. They 
tarried awhile at Harper's Ferry, Va., and then moved onward to Ross Co., O., where John 
Millikan became acquainted with and m. his wife. William Brundige and his wife Annie, 
and their sons Thomas, Xathaniel and John, resided in Ross Co., O., near the Wvatts. 
Nathaniel Wyatt, purchased an extensive tract of land in Delaware Co.,0., adjoining the 
Wyandotte Indians country, and the whole contingent (with the exception of the family 
of I'homas Brundige), including John Millikan's family, removed to that locality, pur- 
chased land and built houses. When the war of 1812 broke out, two blockhouses were 
built upon the Wyatt land, one on each side of his residence, surrounded by stockades; 
and this frontier post was named " Fort Morro," and Lieut. John Millikan commanded a 
military company there. ]5eing a practical surveyor he was detailed to lay out militarv 
roads through the wilderness, then infested with savages, to Lake Frie and' I )ctroit. He 
died of " cold plague " in March, 1814, at Chillicothe, O.. where he was guardinii British

early as iSoo-i, with his brothers Jesse and William, and sat down in Dela- 
ware county. He served in the war of 1S12 with rank of Lieutenant of 
Cavalry. The following statement was found in the family bible of his 
daughter, Mrs. Ann Wyatt Blackmore : ''Lieutenant John 'Millikan died 
March 27, 1814, at Chillicothe, Ohio, while in command of the Guards over 
British prisoners taken by Major Croghan at Fort Stephenson." At the 
time of his removal from North Carolina he received a certiticate from the 
Springfield Monthly Meeting, as was customary with Quakers, but it is not 
known that these credential commendatory were presented to any Monthly 
Meeting in Ohio, or that he ever identified himself with any society of Friend's 
after leaving his early home, although he was considered to be a " birthright 
member." An old letter of date Feb. 2, iSoi, and headed "North West 
Territory, Ross County," contains so much of interest relative to the cost 
of lands and pioneer life in the then far west that it will be subjoined. 

" Honored Father and Mother, after the love and affection I owe to you 
I inform you that I am well and I hope this may find you likewise. When 
I wrote to you last I expected to have been the Bearer of the next Letter 
myself, but my Concerns will not admit to leave home in the Winter Season 
and in the Summer I must tend my crops so that it seems a ditiicult Job 
for me to come to see you, though you are seldom out of my mind long at a 
time and I hope you will not quite forget me though I would not have you 
be under any concern for me. 

I wrote to you last Summer concerning the selling of the Congress Land 
which is to be next May and the prices of our county's produce which is 
nearly the same now as it was then, and I need not write any discription of 
the Country but it is far before your Black Jack Ridges and I expect Bill 
has found it out before now. All the truth is we have not got land of our 
own but we feed ourselves with the hope of getting some. There is Military 
Land of the best quality for sale on the waters of Muskingum, I think on 
reasonable terms. Some at nine shillings per acre six years credit clear of 
Interest, payable in any kind of good property. Four Thousand Acres in 
one track including the most Beautiful Plain called the Bowling Green and 
it contains a grate deal of first rate bottom at four and sixpence per acre 
(but) this must be a good part paid in money. These are undoubted rights. 
If thee has any notion of ever coming to our Country again thee would do 
well to be here the first of next May. \Ve look upon these to be good chances 
of getting Land. It is fifty miles from here and not very far from the head 
of Hawkin in a tine Healthy Country furnished with good Springs and Ex- 
cellent Mill Seats. 

The mare that I brought out died in a few days after Bill left the Ohio, 
and the colt in a short time after. My hogs and cattle I have yet this Fall. 
I sold Four Thousand Five hundred Weight of Pork. I have about one 
hundred head of hogs now ; they keep fat winters and Summers. We could 
get but two dollars per hundred for pork * * * for there is no money amongst 
us. I intend to drive my hogs to Fort Detroit in a year or two ; it is better 
than two hundred miles, but I can get five dollars per hundred by giving 
good weight. 

It is a great satisfaction to me when I Receive a Letter from any of you 
and I hope you will not miss any opportunity, So I must bid you Farewell. 


My love to all my Brothers and Sisters and any who think me worthy of 
inquiring for. 

John Millikan. 

I was down in Kentucky about two weeks ago to see Nathaniel Harlow. 
He is well and living at Colonel Rankins. His people need not be con- 
cerned about him, he is doing very well, is under very good credit and is 
respected by every Body. Perhaps we may both come in next summer; if 
one does the other will. He told me if I had a chance to inform them that 
he was well and received their Letters. Remember his Love to them, and 
to Bill Millikan and Hannah, and to tell them he had not forgot the Sasa- 
fras Cabbin and the Buffalo Skin." There were live children. See 4th

Benjamin Millikan's Advkntlke. The following interesting account 
was furnished by a neice of I5enjamin Millikan and is substantially correct : 
" Benjamin Millikan so well known as an emancipator or liberator of slaves, 
was an honest man who had many warm friends and more bitter enemies 
than any one in Randolph county, North Carolina. He was law-abiding 
and guilty of no wrong. 

I will give one incident which is most prominent and was characteris- 
tic of his many hardships and sacrifices for the good of others. For the 
facts in this case I am indebted to my uncle Fleazer Millikan, who, although 
old, partly paralyzed, and very feeble, remembers all of the circumstances 
well. And I can remember hearing my dear parents tell about the adven- 
ture and many others which I cannot now relate with accuracy. On this 
occasion grandfather encountered most bitter annoyance and persecution 
by slave-holders on account of his protecting a colored man who had once 
been a slave but had been given, with his master's other slaves, his freedom. 
Provision was made in the will to transport the colored people to Indiana, 
and a white man was appointed to care for them. This poor negro had a 
wife who was the slave of another planter and for her sake he declined to 
leave the state. The man who had the custody of the liberated colored man 
hired him to a man who was supposed to be kind and honorable ; but he 
proved to be brutal, assuming all the authority of a master. He beat and 
abused this hired man unmercifully, and did not supply him with suflicient 
clothing. This was known to grandfather and he could not conscientiously 
let such cruelty go on without an ettort to prevent it. He forwarded a letter 
to the man in Indiana who had the oversight of this ex-slave, informing him 
of the facts and soon received a power of attorney from the state authorities 
to go and take the colored man from his oppressor. This was only known 
to the persons concerned. Grandfather had not asked for any such author- 
ity and would have selected some other for the undesirable commission ; but 
he was not the man to shrink from any danger when duty demanded his 

About this time the poor maltreated colored man came to grandfather's 
one day and besought him to go and prevail upon his employer to cease 
beating him, and he consented to go ; but this only enraged him the more 
and he became desperate in his inhuman abuse. At an early hour one morn- 
ing my grandfather and some other neighbors heard a terrible outcry not 
far from his barn as of some one in the hands of a tyrant. On going to 
ascertain the cause, two men were found beating this poor colored man. It 
was assumed by grandfather that he had taken refuge the night before in his 
barn, but unknown to him or his family. The slave masters were suspicious 
and terribly enraged, accusing him of harboring the colored man. 

Grandfather's cup of indignation was now full and he began to use the 
authority with which he had been legally invested. He took the negro to 
his own home, like a good Samaritan, and made him comfortable. Then 


the enraged planter took out a writ against grandfather for taking the hire- 
ling from him. 

We must here bear in mind that it was an otTence calling for a heavy 
penalty upon any one who meddled with another's slaves, and this man. 
with all of the assumption of a slaveholder, was to institute legal proceed- 
ings and punish grandfather for — no unlawful transaction. His friends in- 
formed him, however, of what was going on and he " escaped out of their 
hands " by going across the line into Guilford county until suitable prepara- 
tions could be made for his departure for Indiana with the colored man. 
Without returning to see his family, he went on his journey traveling sixty 
miles the first day in a two-horse wagon over mountainous roads, crossing 
wide streams, and traversing almost interminible forests, enduring many 
hardships. If his enemies had known of his departure before he had made 
this distance they would have followed and perhaps killed him, but his skil- 
fully laid plans had deceived and prevented them and he went on undisturbed. 

When it was known by his enemies, the slave owners,that he had carried 
the old colored man safely to a free state, they boasted that he would never 
dare to return to North Carolina, and made dreadful threats against him if 
he did ; but assured that his action had been lawful, when he had placed the 
negro beyond harm and visited some relatives in Indiana, he came boldly 
back to his home and was not molested. 

Meanwhile, court proceedings had been instituted by the man from 
whom he had taken the negro ; but when grandfather came back with author- 
ity to prosecute him for his brutal treatment of a free man, and for non- 
payment of his wages, he buckled and besought him to sign a paper which 
had been drawn up, to settle the trouble out of court by arbitration. Referees 
were appointed and agreed upon the sum of two hundred and fifty dollars 
to be paid by the man who had abused the negro ; and this he paid. His 
defeat so crushed his spirit that in exasperation, like Judas, he went and 
hanged himself. From a footnote found elsewhere, it appears that the man 
who "went out and hanged himself," was Clark Elder, whose wife was a 
member of the Millikan family. 

It was said by those who were familiar with all the details of this ad- 
venture by grandfather when conveying the colored man to Indiana, that 
it was one of the cleverest schemes ever carried out on the "underground 
railroad." It was only one out of many bold acts of Benjamin Millikan in 
which he circumvented his enemies, the slave holders, and successfully 
guided the poor suffering negroes to a land of freedom. 

He was keen-witted, sagacious, daring and brave : and always found a 
way to accomplish his purposes when impelled by a sense of justice to help 
bondmen in securing their liberty. He went to Indiana six times, going 
over the road by private conveyance twelve times. On four of these trips 
he went with his two-horse wagon to move his relatives to that free state. 
One journey was made on horseback, and he and his wife went once in a 

8. Jesse Millikan' (l), fifth son of Samuel- (l), b. in Randolph Co., \. C, 
Oct. 18, 17S5; m. Apr. 7, iSio, Lyi>ia Barrett, this being her birthday; 
her advent was on Apr. 7, 1791, in Winchester, Frederick Co., Va. Her 
parents were Richard and Sarah (George) Barrett, Quakers, from the "Old 



Dominion. He was a professional surveyor and civil en-ineer and assisted 

in making the rirst survey of Public Lands in Ohio. While survevin- in 

Highland Co., he boarded a while with Richard Barrett and there first met 

his charming Lydia. It has been related that while on his wav to be m 

Jesse Aliilikan had a narrow escape from drowning in a branch of Paint 

Lreek It was in the spring, the water was at tlood^-tide, and as there were 

no bridges he had no alternative but to swim. Love laughed at streams as 

well as -locksmiths," and he boldly launched awav. Being an expert swim- 

mer, he succeeded, after a most desperate struggle, in reaching the opposite 

shore, stimulated and nerved, no doubt, for this herculean exertion bv 

visions of the fair face of her whom he wished to make his own. Tesse 

Milhkan went to Ohio, or the Northwest Territorv. with his brothers "fohn 

and William, as early as iSoo-i, and settled at Chillicothe, which was'then 

the capital, and subsequently at Washington Court House, Favette Co 

where he resided until his death. His daughter, Mrs. Ellen Rawlinc^s, has 

a manuscript arithmetic and geometry written by him in his vouth, showing 

that his thoughts were early turned toward Ohio, for one of the problems 

reads as follows: -If it be 600 miles and one half from Samuel Millikan's 

door to that hne country, the Miami, which I do greatlv admire, and that a 

wheel nine and three inches be, how often will it turA in running there? 

Jesse, I require it of thee." ^^ 

He was postmaster at Washington Court House, and clerk of Favette 
Co. from Its organization until his death. He also built a mill which he 
long owned, and which become the property of his son, Curan Millikan. It 
seems quite remarkable that we should be able to produce letters written bv 
each of the three brothers, sons of Samuel Millikan who went to Ohio, but 
such IS the case, and we herewith append the following verbatim lik-mtim.

I have wrote Nathaniel U yatt requesting information of the situation of 
land will'd to John's children and also informing him of the nature of father's 
will respecting the children. I have not had an opportunity of sending the 
deed for that Land to be recorded yet ; and indeed if a new one could be 
procured I am of opinion it would be better as the one made has been exe- 
cuted so long ago. I however must endevor to procure a new one or have 
the one father sent recorded. 

I do not expect to go to Carolina this fall. I am about building a mill 
which requires my attention here. If there is anything coming to me from 
Carolina it will be of material benefit to me this fall particularly to assist in 
erecting the mill, if there be any safe opportunity of sending forward on 
paper on the State Bank of X. Carolina, (which) is good here. I have not 
wrote to William since I received your letter, because I do not Know where 
to direct to him. 

We have four children, namely, Samuel, Curran, Jesse and Richard, all 
healthy as common children. I will inform you of the situation of the land 
in this state which Father bought of Ruddock as soon as I receive an 
answer from Xathl Wyatt. Please to inform me what Father wished should 
be done with the other hundred acres, there being two hundred acres, and 
only one (hundred) will'd to John's children. 

I wish you to write to me as soon as possible ; and as I do not now rec- 
ollect anything more of importance to communicate, I will close this letter 
desiring that mother will not suppose I have forgotten her parental care 
and attention toward me when I was under her good care. Farewell ! 

Jesse & Lydia Millikan. 

Jesse Millikan was a man of medium height, strong built, very active in 
body and mind and a natural mathematician and mechanic. He was suc- 
cessful as a business man, and his penmanship as uniform and graceful as 
any engraved letters. His wife, Lydia Barrett, was large, and their children 
and descendants were strongly marked with characteristics of the Barretts, 
being generally large framed, hardy, lovers of out-of-door pursuits and 
long lived. 

It has been said that Jesse Millikan's wife was expelled from the Quaker 
society because she m. outside of it ; but the simple fact seems to be that 
she did not unite with any Quaker society after her m. for the reason there 
was none in Fayette county. She did become a member of the Methodist 
Episcopal church at Washington C. H., but continued to wear her Quaker 
dress till the day of her death, and was buried in it. 

Jesse Millikan d. August 1S36, and Lydia his wife d. Oct. 27, 1857. Of 
their eleven children ten lived to grow up and m. and in August 1897, seven 
were still living. See 4th generation.

who has long been associated with his father as editor and publisher, now 
manages the paper and printing establishment. Mr. Millikan had also been 
a member of the Ohio Legislature, being twice elected to that body, besides 
filling other responsible positions. He seems to have been the " Grand 
Old Man," editorially, of Ohio, and had lived so industriously, efficienth-, 
and honestly until patriarchial years that he had won the esteem and ven- 
eration of a wide circle of friends and acquaintances. He was in a com-

Washington Court House, Fayette county. At the age of 26 he was united 
in marriage to Miss Lydia Ann Metzger, and nine children blessed their

he became quite popular, being elected to the office of Justice of the Peace, 
a position he held with credit for two terms, when he resigned in 1S50. On

to Amador county, where he was engaged in mining with fair success for 
a period often years, when he purchased a large stock ranch at Sutter Creek, 
which he conducted successfully until the death of his wife tifteen years ago. 
He then disposed of his belongings in that section, and in 1S95 he came

and was held in high esteem by all who knew him. In early days he was 
strongly identified with the ^^'hig party and after its termination he was a

Dalton, Wayne Co., Ind., Jan. 20, 1S21, being a daughter of George and 
Mary (EUer) Koons, who removed from Ash Co., X. C, to Henry Co., Ind., 
about the year 18 16. She d. at Newcastle, Ind., June 25, 1900, in her Soth 
year. John R. Millikan d. at the same place Sept. 12, 1895, aged Si years. 

His opportunities for an education in early life were very limited and 
he grew to manhood on his father's farm. W'ith a desire to improve his 
condition and believing this could be better accomplished in a free state. 
he went to Henry Co., Ind., in 1835, and settled one mile northwest of 
Hillsboro. During the following winter he attended school, and subse- 
quently taught several terms in the elementary branches with success. In 
the winter of 1837, he visited his old home in Tenn., but soon returned to 
Ind. During the summer he engaged in farming vet availed himself of 
every opportunity to improve his mind. In 1842, he removed with his family 
to Hancock Co., Ind. In 1845, he moved back to Henry Co., and pur- 
chased a farm on Flatrock, where he added to his agricultural emplovment 
a blacksmithing establishment, being something of an expert at this trade. 

In 1853, he purchased and removed to what may be called the Millikan 
homestead, in Liberty 'i'ownship, where for many years he successfully 
managed his farming interests, adding to this pork packing. In 1854, he 
was elected Justice of the Peace, and was subsequently re-elected serving 


eight years. He was many times a delegate to state conventions of the 
political party to which he belonged. His political duties were performed 
with fidelity to his constituents without being a bitter partisan. His de- 
cision and rulings when Justice of the Peace were remarkable for their firm- 
ness and impartiality. In iS6S, Mr. Millikan was elected by the Repub- 
licans of Henry Co., as Representative in the Legislature of the state and 
took his seat Jan 7, 1S69. During this session he was an earnest and 
active member, gave close attention to legislative proceedings and voted 
intelligently and conscientiously on all public issues. He was chairman of 
the very important committee on roads, and introduced a bill authorizing 
the assessment of lands for the construction of plank, macadamized and 
gravel highways. At the special session of the Legislature, held the same 
year, his bill became a law, and by virtue of it, hundreds of gravel roads 
were constructed in the state. A special session of the Legislature was 
called Apr. 10, 1S69, at which Mr. Millikan voted for the fifteenth Amend- 
ment to the Constitution of the L'nited States. He was always consistantly 
opposed to the payment of the claim of the Morgan raid bill which was 
pending during his service. 

In 1870 he v/as again elected as Representative from his county, and 
during the session became an active and influential member, serving on the 
committee on roads, canals and public e.xpenditures. This committee inves- 
tigated the management of all the State Institutions. In 1S73 the Citizens 
State Bank of Newcastle was organized, and Mr. Millikan, who was a 
stockholder in the institution, was elected its President and continued in 
that position for many years. Py industry and economy he amassed a com- 
petency, and was always kind and charitable to the less fortunate. He was 
always a warm friend of education and served many years as school trustee. 
When the question of free schools was tirst agitated, and when the matter 
was submitted to a vote of the people, he and two others were the only 
persons in Liberty Township who voted for the free school system. He 
was a firm believer in the Christian religion, and with his estimable wife, 
was, since 1S63, a consistent member of the Disciples church. He was 
always an advocate of temperance and all moral- reform, and in all the rela- 
tions of life was upright and respected. He was fortunate in his business, 
official and domestic life, and few were more deserving of success. He was 
the father of eight children, two of whom have died, one being a sacrifice 
on the altar of his country. See 5th generation for names and particulars.

*Hop.S(jN F^ANfiLV. — William Hobson's paternal grandparents were Charles Hobson 
and Sarah Beck who lived in Chatham County, X. C, and belonged to the Society of 
Friends. His father was (ieorge Hobson, b. in said county and state. May 27, 1772. Soon 
after his marriage he removed to Tennessee and settled near Lost Creek Friends church 
in Knox county, East Tenn.. and remained there until six children were born ; then they 
removed to Indiana in '813. ^^ iiliam Hobson's maternal grandparents were Thomas 
Marshall and Rebecca Chapman, the latter a native of Bucks Co.. I'a. To them were 
born rive sons and two daughters. His paternal grandparents had rive sons and nine 
daughters, all of whom lived to have families. 

Charles Holjson had a family of six sons and four daughters. (Jne son, Thomas 
Hobson, who closed his days at l.ldora, Harden Co., Iowa, placed 53000 in the hands of 
trustees for the bcnerit of Contrabanils coming into the Union lines at the close of the 


8. Matthew Russell Millikan^ (l), fourth son of Alexander'' (2) and Eliza- 
beth Russell, b. 40 miles east of Knoxville, Jefferson Co., Tenn., Jan. 17, 
1826; ni. Jan. i, 1S52, Ariminta Davis, b. June 8, 1835, daughter of Aquilla 
and Linnie Davis, early settlers of Henry Co., Ind. He was a lad eleven 
years of age when his parents removed from Tenn. to Henry Co., Ind. 
Reared amid pioneer scenes on the home place in Blue River township, he 
early became familiar with clearing and developing a new farm, and as edu- 
cational privileges were limited, he did what he could to obtain a knowl- 
edge of the elementary branches, attending during winter seasons schools 
taught in a small log cabin near his home. 

He remained with his father, assisting with the farm work, until his 
25th year, when he began life for himself as a blacksmith, setting up his 
shop a few miles north of Newcastle where he did a large and profitable 
business in general blacksmithing, making plows, wagons, and doing repair 
work for the contractor, DeGraff, one of the builders of the Cincinnati and 
Chicago railroad, now an important division of the " Panhandle " system. 

At the end of four years he disposed of his smithing business for six 
hundred and forty dollars which he invested in one hundred and twenty 
acres of land in Blue River township just as nature made it. By great in- 
dustry he soon had a farm well improved, and as the years went by continued 
to add to his possessions, until he became one of the largest owners of real 
estate in his township. 

Mr. Millikan has kept up with modern ideas of farming, and by care- 
fully studying the nature of soils and their adaptability to the various crops, 
has seldom failed to realize large returns for his expenditures and labor. 

His home farm is a fine old place with a beautiful dwelling suggestive of 
comfort, while the prime condition of all other improvements, together with 
the well cultivated fields, bear evidence of the thrift and prosperity which 
attend the owner's efforts as an enterprising and successful agriculturist. 

Mr. Millikan has lived a useful life, protracted beyond that of a majority 
of men and his character has never been assailed, his integrity being above 
reproach. He posesses strong and positive traits, entertains decided opin- 
ions upon all matters of political, religious or general character, and those 
who know him best, bear testimony to his sterling qualities of head and 
heart, and to his w^orth as a neighbor, friend and citizen. A useful factor in 
the community and in every relation of his life, he sustains an enviable 
reputation as an honest man. His deeds are the best line with which to 
measure his life, and his works will in the future, constitute his most endur- 
ing monument. He is a Democrat politically, and is strongly imbued with 
the religious principles of the Society of Friends in which his ancestors 
were strict members. There were eleven children in this family of whom 
more with 5th generation. 

10. David Millikan^ (2), fifth son of Alexander'' (2) and Elizabeth Russell, 
b. in Jefferson Co., Tenn., Jan. 13, 182S, and came with his parents to In- 
diana when ten years of age, in 1S38. He m. Feb. 11, 1858, Martha A. 
RuNYAX, daughter of Thomas and Mary Runyan, of Henry Co., Ind., b. in 
July 1840, and brought up on a farm adjoining that of her husband. 

Mr. Millikan enjoyed but few advantages for acquiring an education. 
He assisted his father to clear and develop the homestead farm in Blue 


River township — rolling logs and ploughing amongst stumps and roots with 
an old fashioned right-hand plow. When about twentv-one years of age he 
saw his first "double-shovel " plow, made by his brother, John R. Millikan, 
and considered it to be one of the grandest improvements of the time. He 
continued with his father, farming on shares, until his marriage. He had 
bought a tract of land in Grant Co., Ind., which he sold, and purchased the 
homestead farm on Flatrock in order to live in the neighborhood of his 
brothers and sisters and support his father in his declining years. He has 
lived on this farm and so improved it that it is one of the most pleasant 
rural homes in the beautiful valley of Flatrock. 

Mr. Millikan is an active member of the Democratic party of the old 
Jacksonian and Jeffersonian stamp and firmly believes that the affairs of 
this government will never be fairly, honestly and economically adminis- 
tered, until that party assumescontrol of theexecutive and legislative branches 
thereof. He enjoys the confidence of his party in a high degree, and has 
often been honored by the members in various positions of responsibility. 
During the last decade, few have been the county and state conventions to 
which he has not been sent as a delegate. 

He was elected one of the three trustees of Blue River township under 
the new school law of 1854, although the ^^'hig party was largely in the as- 
cendency. As such trustee he helped locate all the school houses in the 
township. For a second term in the same otfice he was opposed by a promi- 
nent Whig and member of the Society of Friends, and defeated him by a 
handsome majority, being then only 26 years of age. 

Mrs. Millikan is a woman possessed of many virtues and Christian graces, 
which have adorned and blessed the marriage relation and the home. She 
is a consistent member of the Universalist church, and her husband, though 
not a communicant, does his share in supporting the church. 

The fruits of this union were one daughter and two sons of whom more 
with the 5th generation.

and located at Raysville, Ind., where he became acquainted with and m. 
Rebecca C. Pickett, widow of Mahlon Pickett, and daughter of Isham 
Cox, (May 23, 1S67) of X. C. They moved to Johnson Co. near Eudora.

hill cemetery. 

During the Rebellion he kept out of the Confederate army, being a mem- 
ber of the Friends society, by the payment of S600. His house was head- 
quarters of the neighborhood conscripts and deserters who were hiding to 
keep out of the army. By his second wife he had three children of whom, 
with other issue, presently. 

I. M«Trt?P-\ Jane Hodgix, b. Aug. 23, 1S45 : m. at Plaintield, Ind., 
^ Xov. 28, 1S69, JtTSEPW W. HoDSON ; removed to Kansas in 1876, 

and remained there 18 years; then moved to Oklohoma, where they 
i now reside on a small farm adjoining the town of Stroud. Six chil- 

es dren. One of them, Mrs. Rosie Silkiietlei; widow, is postmistress of 

Rosehill, Kansas. 

II. Benjamin Millikan Hodgin, b. Dec. 25, 1S47 : m. Miss Lennie 
Leota John, daughter of Caleb and Martha John of Moulton, la., 
Feb. 22, 1SS5, and is now living on a farm of 440 acres devoted to 
grain and stock raising, near Rosehill, Butler Co., Ks. Two children. 

He became of military age when the Conscription act was passed in X. 
C, calling for all from 16 to 65 years and to avoid army service, he with 
sixteen others, who had been in hiding, started on the " underground rail- 
road " to get through the lines to a place of safety : that particular line be- 
ing under the management of an old man and a neighbor, named Thomas 
Turner. They traveled only by night and secreted themselves by day. 
On one morning when the old man was about to start on ahead with the 
wagon which contained the clothing and grub for the boys, he induced Ben 
Hodgin, he being the youngest and smallest, to ride : assuring hirn that 
there would be little danger that day. So off they went, leaving the others 
to hide and sleep in the woods until night fell, when they were to travel and 
overtake the wagon next morning. Ben was hidden under some bedclothes 
in the back part of the wagon, and when they reached a little town some 
distance west of Portsmouth, Va., through which uncle Tomy was leisurely 
driving, to their surprise out stepped two men in Confederate uniform, guns 
in hand, and shouted, halt ! The team was stopped and the following brief 
but interesting conversation ensued : 

" Where are you going, sir ?" 

"Oh, going down in the eastern part of the state to visit some of mv 

" Where are you from, sir ?" 

" From up in Xorth Carolina." 

" What are you loaded with, sir ?" 

" Xothing. Got no load at all ; just my bedding and feed." 


"Well, I mind we had better search the wagon." 

" All right," said uncle Tomy, sliding over to the other side to make 
room for them to get in. 
"Search all ye wish to." 

"Ah ! he's too willing to be searched," said one. 
" It's no use. Drive on." 

"Get up Gray ! " shouted uncle Tomy, and out of town they went, only 
too glad to leave the Provost guard behind. 

Ben Hodgin says he has never heard his heart beat as loud before nor since 
as when he was lying covered up there and listening to that conversation. 

They found their way safely through the union lines, took the oath of 
allegiance at Norfolk, Va., and were given free transportation to Columbus, 
O. They had landed in Baltimore on the morning of the fall of Richmond. 
Benjamin Hodgin went to Indiana and visited relatives, working here 
and there ; returned to X. C. in 1S65, and in the following spring the whole 
family left their old southern home for Raysville, Ind. In 1S71, Ben settled 
on the Osage Indian Trust Land, and has since been through "drouths, 
cyclones, hot winds, grasshoppers and everything else that befel the Kan- 
sas settlers in early days."

granted to his great-grandfather, William Millikan, who moved from Pennsyl- 
vania to Rowan Co. in 1758. He lived in the old house that was built on 
the same site of the one burned down by Colonel Fanning in 1779, until 
1891, when he erected a new residence. He was deputy sheriff for thirteen 
years ; afterwards elected by the people sheriff for the county for two years, 
and during his term of office it became his unpleasant duty, in the execution 
of the law in accordance with his oath, to hang a man who had been con- 
victed for the murder of his wife. In consequence of the exercise of this 
function of his office his Quaker bretheren disowned him. He was elected 
to the State General Assembly as representative in 1888 and served with 
honor. He was also a Justice of the Peace for Randolph Co. His residence 
at Sophia, is seven miles from Ashboro, the county seat. Mr. Millikan has 
been a useful public man and highly respected citizen. He is a lover of 
liberty and rejoiced in the emancipation of the slaves by the sweep of Lin- 
coln's pen. A high-minded, sturdy, uncompromising Republican, he stands 
for all that is just. He has many valuable old family documents in his 
possession, among them an early land plat drawn from a survey by William 
Millikan. Kindly responding to my every request, he has furnished many 
records and much interesting information for this book. See introduction.

resides at Thorntown, Ind., where he is engaged in farming and harness 
making, having succeeded to his father's business. The following clipping 
from a local paper speaks for itself: " The oldest continued business in 
Thorntown today, and far away by many years over the next oldest, un- 
doubtedly is the Millikan Harness establishment, which is 65 years old this 
month. It is remarkable in other ways in that its management has passed 
only from father to son, retained the same name, and remained in the same 
location, sixty-three years. Mr. Will. Millikan, the proprietor today, was 
born in a cabin on the same lot where the store now stands. About that 
time the shop in front was burned out but in less than a month, loyal citi- 
zenship had the then young proprietor, Boss Millikan, securely established 
again in a new building. This business is also remarkable in the changes 
that such industry has undergone. Many years ago the main work was the 
making of saddles, and such an establishment made and sold principally 
saddles. Orders for buggy or carriage harness used to come very far apart 
and were from a distinguished or wealthy citizen. Today it is harness, and 
never a saddle. Then it was a saddlery, now a harness store. Inasmuch as 
every business must rise or fall by its own merit or lack of it, such a career 
speaks volumes for honesty and the straightforward business management 
with which such establishment must necessarily have been conducted to 
reach such a position in years." To them were b. five children named as 
follows :

James Millikin was born in Scotland and came to America with his parents 
when a small boy before the Revolutionary war. He was the youngest of 
the family, and we do not know that he had more than three brothers and 
one sister, viz. : William, John. Samuel and Mary, of whom hereafter. 

We do not know anything about the father of this family. Their mother 
was a very intellectual woman, and much devoted to the Presbyterian church. 
Evervone loved and honored her. At the time of her death in iSoS, she 
made her home with James Millikin at Mt. Pleasant, Penn. 

The family located first on the Brandywine, near where Washington 
crossed with his army in Chester Co.,* Penn., and remained there for a num- 
ber of years ; but being apprised of danger from the Indians they buried 
their valuables, vacated their home temporarily, and tied to other parts for 
safety. When, this warning came, the mother was reading her bible. She 
removed her spectacles and placed them between the pages of the sacred 
volume, and this treasure, though now fragile and discolored by age, is still 
in possession of the family. When they returned they found their property 
— with the exception of what was concealed — destroyed and they removed 
to Westmoreland Co., Penn., where James Millikin secured a grant of land. 

From the state land ot!ice at Harrisburg, Pa., the following was pro- 
cured : 

"April 12, 17S6, to James Millikin 115 acres in Pitt Township, \\'est- 
moreland County, Pennsylvania, called 'James' Delight,' surveyed in per- 
suance of an application entered 13th June, 1769. by Robert Waugh, who 
dying intestate, his administrator by virtue of the orders of the Orphan's 
Court, by deed dated the 9th of P'ebruary, 1773, conveyed the said land 
to James Millikin for whom a warrant of acceptance was issued nth Apr. 
instant. Names of owners of adjoining lands, James Fleming, Mr. Smith 
and Simon Girty." 

James Millikin married Mary LocKARot who was b. in Ireland in 1762. 
She had been m. to John Thackett, and in 17S0, they came to America. 
Their two children d. when crossing the ocean, and three months later the 
husband d. Xine years afterwards she became Mrs. Millikin. By this 
union there were five children whose names will appear. The death of the 
father, which occurred in iSoS, was caused by a fail from the high porch 
of a house where he had assisted at a -'log-rolling." The men were wash- 
ing for supper when he was pushed off by a drunken man. 

*The namt; of a fames Millikin appears on a ta.\ list (with several other Millikins) 
in Chester Co., Pa., in 1753 and 1754 at East and West Xantmel, and was designated as 
" unmarried." 

tLocKHART, originally Locard and Lockard, was a surname of great antiquity in Scot- 
land, and as early as 11 24, Stephen Lockard was "a man of rank and distinction." (Jne 
of this family accompanied Sir James Douglas on his e.xpedition to the Holy Land with 
the heart of iJruce and after this event they bore a heart enclosed in a paddock upon their 
arms and for a time chaiijred their name to Lockheart.

The family then removed to Steubenville, O., and thence to Licking 
Co., O., where the children grew to manhood and womanhood : and after 
their marriage and settlement in life, the mother made her home with her 
daughter, Mrs. Jane Parkinson, until herd, in Jan. 1S56, at Etna, O., when 
96 years of age. She was industrious, independent and too proud to accept 
aid from anyone. As spining was a common domestic industry in those 
days, and being an expert at the wheel, she provided ample means for the 
support of her family. She taught them to be honest and industrious, and 
they all made life a success. She was buried in the " Gravel Pjank Ceme- 
tery," on Licking Creek, half a mile- from the city of Patascola, where she 
rests beside four of her grandchildren. Names of children : fane, Samiw/, 
Mary, Margaret and JoJiu.

daughter, Mrs. Martha Winter, at Garfield, 111. Mr. Parkinson was a man 
of marked personal appearance. His complexion was fair, his eyes blue, 
his hair auburn, and he wore no beard on his broad, firm chin. He was a 
powerful man physically, of heavy bone, and standing six feet four inches 
without shoes ; was spare of tlesh but weighed two hundred and fifteen 
pounds. The cords on the back of his hands were as prominent as small 
ropes. He was just the man to hew a farm from the heavy forest, and this 
he accomplished. Was not a church member, but used no profane language 
and was a regular attendant at divine service and Sabbath school. Mrs. 
Parkinson was of medium height and figure, rather fieshy, with dark hair, 
very black eyes, and good complexion. She was the very picture of health 
until advanced in years; and her eyes never lost their brilliancy nor her 
ears their acuteness of hearing. She was a consistant member of the United 
Brethren church. Nine children, four of whom d. of scarlet fever in 1S32,

2. Samuel Millikin^' (l), eldest son of James- (l), b. in Westmoreland Co 
Pa., Nov 24, iSoi : m. 1S24, in Licking Co., O., Rebecca Willlvms, daugh- 
ter of John and Margaret ( Worthington) Williams of Franklin Co., O who 
was b. there Feb. 24, iSoS. Thev moved to La Salle Co., 111., in 18:50 
locating at Ottawa, where they were surrounded bv Indians and exposed to 
many hardships and dangers common to pioneer life, but survived them all 
and acquired a farm comprising 400 acres which is still owned bv his de- 
scendents. He d. Feb. 24. 1S66, after which the widow made a home with 
her son Samuel until her d. July iS, 1892. 

Samuel MiUikin was full six feet in stature, erect and thin in fiesh. His 
eyes were black, deep-set and arched with heavy brows. He had a deep 
thoughtful, earnest look, but without a trace of melancholv. He was fluent 
of speech and could express himself clearlv and forciblv. 'Of strono- demo- 
cratic proclivity he kept in touch with, and was looked^upon with fa^vor bv 
Stephen A. Douglas and other political celebrities of his state. 

He was one among the most thorough and substantial farmers in his 
county. His fine stock, and especially his substantial, well-fed, well-groomed 
horses, together with his up-to-date farming implements, kept him° in the 
lead, and he acquired a competancy by agricultural pursuits. 

Samuel Millikin was brave even to a fault. In the spring of 183^ when 
the Indian war broke out with all its horrors under Black Hawk, one Shan- 
bena, an Indian chief who was friendlv to the whites, rode for manv hours 
to warn the settlers that Indians contemplated making a raid on them at a 
certain hour. The families hastily gathered up their belongings and started 
for the fort on the south bank of the Illinois river— where Ottawa now 
stands— in the darkness of the night. Next morning the rising sun bathed 

in glittering splendor the polished mountings on the guns of about three 
hundred Indian warriors on the opposite bank of the river, who were gazin- 
intently on the fort. ^ * 

As might be expected in the excitement of the hour, much provision was 
left in the cabins of the settlers, and the supplv in the fort was soon ex- 
hausted. Somebody must risk their life to save the others from starving 
Ihose who were brave enough to risk the long and perilous journev to the 
mill, were prevented by their wives who threw their arms around their necks 
and begged them not to go. Looking his wife in the face as if to -ain her 
approval, Samuel Millikin said, "I will ^o.^ She proved to possess that ' 
kind of metal admired by the bold pioneer, and quickly sanctioned his going 
as if no danger was apprehended. 

He left the fort with art ox team and wagon and started on his lonelv 
journey of many miles over the prairie, through grass taller than his head, 
and without even a faint trail to guide him to his destination. His out- 
going trip was without incident worthv of mention ; but when within a few 

'^ ; 



miles of the fort, on his return, he noticed two men on ponies approaching 
him. The nearer they came the more positive he was that they were In- 
dians. He could see the silvei trimmings on their guns glisten in the sun- 
light, and knowing how fond the red men were of ornamental weapons, took 
this as evidence of the character of the approaching horsemen. Nearer 
and nearer they came, and what was he to do ? Having no horse on which 
to escape, his only means of safety was to abandon his team and hide in 
the tall grass. With that object in view he raised one foot upon the wagon 
box and waited. Still nearer they came on the gallop, and he fancied him- 
self making the leap for life: but finally, when iiot many rods awav, he dis- 
covered that they were white men, and' men whom he knew. Great was the 
rejoicing when Samuel Millikin with old '* Buck and Bright " pulled up at 
the fort. , 

He was a grand old pioneer in a new country who related many ad- 
ventures of the Black Hawk war, and the brave' part he enacted could 
scarcely be overdrawn. 

He had issue eight daughters and three sons. See 4th generation. 

3. Mary Millikin' (l), second daughter of James- (1), b. in Westmoreland 
Co., Pa., was m. to Johx Drake and d. of consumption in Licking Co., 
O. Her husband took his three children and moved awav, and on his de- 
parture remarked to his friends: "If I do well vou will' hear from me." 
He was not afterward heard from, and the fate of 'this family is unknown. 

4. Margaret Millikin^ ( I ), third daughter of James- ( 1 ), b. in Westmoreland 
Co., Pa., July 17, 1S03; was m. July 17, 1820, to John S. Huxt, and had 
eleven children named as follows :

Oct. 19, 187 I, in Santa Clara, Cal. She d. there July 4, 1882. He moved 
with his family from Licking Co., O. to 111. about the year 1834, and after 
residing there two or three years, went to Iowa, thence in 1850 or 1851, 
when the gold fever was at its zenith, he migrated to California. He did 
not engage in mining, however, but purchased a farm in the beautiful Santa 
Clara valley, midway between Santa Clara and San Jose. At that time 


Spanish claims occasioned much trouble, and after making considerable 
improvements on his land, he was compelled to pav for it a second time.* 
He was an invalid for several years before his death. He was a man of 
vigorous mind, and was highly respected by his acquaintances. During his 
illness he was visited by men of prominence. 

He and his family were natural vocalists, and were endowed with such 
sweet voices that their conversation had a musical charm. 

There were ten children. See fourth generation.

George Milligan, the first known ancestor of this branch of the Milligan 
family, came from Ireland to Washington Co., Pa., before the Revolution. 
From the State Land office at Harrisburg, Pa., the following record was 
procured : 

''April 2, 1792, to George Milligan, loo acres 65 perches situate on the 
waters of Chartier's Creek, in Washington county, called Milligan's Brew- 
ery : in pursuance of a warrant issued to said George Milligan March i. 
17S6. Names of owners of adjoining lands: Samuel Workman, James 
\\'orkman, Josiah Scott, Matthew Steen, Samuel Sile.x, and the widow 

Here, evidently, George Milligan sat down, established his home, en- 
gaged in the beer brewing business, and raised his family. He may have 
removed to Bedford Co., Pa. Maiden name of his wife not known. What 
relation to other Milligans does not appear. It will be observed that one 
of his neighbors was Samuel Silex, and as his son, whose name will pres- 
ently appear, married into that family, we find a link in the identifications. 
Number of children unknown. 

James Milligan-, son of George^ (1), was m. in Washington Co.. Pa., Apr. 
1796, to Marv Silex. They removed from Bedford, Bedford Co., Pa., in 
1801, locating at Greenfield, Highland Co., O., where James received two 
lots of land free. He was one of the charter members of the village. He 
d. on his farm at Greenfield. Issue, eight children, viz. : HannaJi\ Lovina^, 
George^, Nancy^, Mary^, Saf/i!iel\ IVilsovJ^, and /avics'K 

1. George Milligan'' (2), son of James- (1), was b. near the town of Brad- 
docks, Pa., March 34, iSoi, and was orphaned by the death of both parents. 
He was adopted by friends of the family who moved to Perry Co., O., where 
he m. Priscilla Thrap, daughter of John and Elizabeth (Scaft') Thrap. She 
was b. in London Co., Va., March 20, 1796, and was of German descent. 
One authority states that George came to Deaverstown, O., in iSii, with 
Joshua Dikes, his stepfather. He was a farmer and stock dealer, and ac- 
quired a considerable estate. He d. July 28, 1879. Issue as follows: 

2. Wilson Milligan^ (1), son of James- Jl), b. in Highland Co., O., Aug. 
27, 1812; m. June 20, 1S33, Miss Mary Blain, daughter of James and

1822, being the daughter of Reuben and Mary ( Pearsol ) Montgomery, and 
of Scottish-CJerman extraction. 

Wilson Milligan passed his early life on a farm and attended a sub- 
scription school. He studied at home as he had opportunity and acquired 


a practical education. He migrated to Jay Co., Ind.. in 1S37, traveling on 
horseback, and fording many streams. From fay Co., he went to the 
northern part of the state to get money he had left there to pay for his land. 
He entered i\o acres, built a log cabin 14x16 feet, with clapboard roof, 
puncheon floor, and mud-and-stick chimney ; then moved his family. Bear 
Creek Township was at that time covered with an unbroken forest and 
was the home of wild beasts and abundant game. Here he cleared his large 
farm, since known as one of the best in the township. Here he lived and 
toiled for more than fifty years. He had 320 acres and three good resi- 
dences thereon, besides commodious farm outbuildings.' He was a strong 
abolitionist before the Civil war, and a staunch Republican until his death. 
He served as school commissioner and township trustee. Was a member 
of the United Brethren church, and was for many years a faithful worker 
for his Master. He had issue six children whose names will presently ap- 
pear. His d. occurred Sept. iS, 1S91.

Charles V. Milligan^ (2), youngest son of Jackson' (T), was b. in Van Wirt 
Co., O., Nov. 5, 1S5S. His father having d. when he was one year of age, 
he was placed with John Hire, a farmer, near Middlepoint, O.. who under- 
took to teach him the mysteries of agriculture, but as his mother and familv 
were going to Iowa in 1S68, he w^ent with them and threw his fortunes with

one year, when they returned and lived in Lima, O. till the spring of 187 i, 
when they removed to their farm one mile west of Van Wirt, O. in October 
1S74. He was given a certificate and taught school at Timberville, Pauld- 
ing Co., O., one winter. Plaving had private instruction in algebra and 
latin, he entered Van Wirt High school and attended one term of the 1S74-5 
school year. Graduating from this institution in class of '78, he entered 
the law office of Col. I. X. Alexander, and also read law in the office of 
Saltzgaber & Glen at Van Wirt. He pursued his legal studies until 1884, 
when he took up his residence in Topeka, Kansas, ( having been admitted 
to the bar) but instead of engaging in legal practice he associated himself 
with his brother, William K. Milligan, and brother-in-law^, George E. Lillie, 
in the lithographing, printing, and blank book business. He traveled for 
this house one year, and was then made manager. In 1SS8, they consoli- 
dated their business with the tirm of Hall >:\: OT)onald, and he traveled for 
this house in Colorado, Xew Mexico and Utah : but selling out his interests, 
he accepted a position with Clark ^: Courts, lithographers, in Galveston, 
Tex., traveling in Louisiana, Texas, Xew Mexico, Arizona, and the states of 
Tamaulipas, Coahuila, Xuevo Leon and San Luis, Potosi, in the Repulic 
of Mexico. He resigned his position in 1S92, and entered the Cincinnati 
law school, graduating in class of '93. He then located in San Antonio, 

Tex., but disliking the practice, after two years experience, he took up his 
position with Clark ^: Courts where he remained three years. Having be- 

ome familiar with business in the Republic of Mexico, he purchased an 








interest in the Maverick-Clark Lithograph Company, and took the manage- 
ment, where he remained until his death. He was a Knight Templar and 
belonged to the Knights of Pythias. He m. Paulink Wf.gexstahl and 
had one daughter, Ellzabetli. 


C. V. Milligan. for the past eight years manager of the Maverick-Clarke 
Litho company, died this morning at 2.30 o'clock at Dr. Kenney's sani- 
tarium after an operation for appendicitis. The direct cause of death was 
a weak heart. Mr. Milligan had been a resident of San Antonio for the 
past fifteen years, and was regarded as one of the most substantial and en- 
terprising citi/ens. 

Charles Vernon Milligan was born in Van Wert, Ohio, November 3, 
1859, and was a son of Jackson Milligan. He attended college at Cincin- 
nati and graduated with honors. He studied law and practiced it later in 
life. About seven years ago, he was married to Miss Pauline Wegenstahl 
of Cincinnati, and a daughter, Elizabeth, now 5 years of age, has been born 
to them. 

Mr. Milligan came to San Antonio about fifteen years ago and he prac- 
ticed law here for a number of years. About eight years ago he became 
identified with the Maverick-Clarke company and was largely instrumental 
in bringing that concern to the front. 

He -\Vas a member of the Anchar Masonic lodge and took a deep interest 
in matters pertaining to Masonry. He made a study of it and was well 
posted on the rules of this great order. At the time of his death he was 
senior warden and he would have been the next worshipful master. 

Besides his wife and child, Mr. Milligan is survived by two brothers 
and two sisters — \V. E. Milligan of this city, also with the Maverick-Clarke 
company ; Guy Anderson of Bellville, 111. ; Mrs. George Lillie of this city 
and Mrs. George \\'. Moffitt of Topeka, Kas. 

\V. E. Milligan has lived here for several years, and prior to coming to 
San Antonio he conducted a lithographing plant in Topeka. It was there 
where C. V. Milligan received his business training and when he came to 
San Antonio later he joined his brother in business here. 

The deceased was operated upon yesterday and this was the second 
operation of that kind which was performed on him since last December.

The families bearing this surname in Georgia hold a variety of traditions 
respecting their ancestors. Some insist that they came from " auld " Ire- 
land, "bejabbers," to that state, direct; others that they were from Scot- 
land. There is also a tradition that their name was formerly Milli'^an. If 
this statement be true the whole family may have been descended from 
Hugh Milligan whose name appears on the muster roll of Col. Lee's 
soldiers of the Revolution in the archives at Atlanta, Ga. They have been 
very prolific and branches are now settled in Tennessee, Mississippi, Texas, 
and' Alabama. Some spell their surname MuHican. Their genealogy and

after his settlement in Texas, Col. Millican died, and a few years later the 
mother also died : both were buried in the cemetery on the McGinnis place. 
This son acquired his education from such advantages as were aftorded at

Rev. L. R. Millican, pastor of the First Baptist church, El Paso, Tex., 
is a native Texan Born in Brazos county where he lived till 13 years old, 
being left an orphan, went to live with an aunt in Lampasas, then on the 
borders of civilization. 

Though but a boy he took an active part in ridding the country of the 
savages, sometimes leaving the school room to go with the scouts after 
them. Brought up on the border, and as a cowboy he was thrown often 
with some of the most daring and desperate men. The early impressions 
and admonitions of a sainted mother, together with her prayers, saved him 
from being drawn into drinking, gambling or profanity, often being the 
only sober one in the crowd. 

In August 1S74, at the age of 20 he gave his heart and life to Christ 
and was baptised into the Lampasas Baptist church. He went immediately 
to Baylor University to prepare for his life work, and Feb. 4, 1878, he was 
ordained. He gave himself at once to preaching in the destitute regions of 
Lampasas and surrounding counties, where he soon built up some strong 
country churches. He has been closely identified with, the mission work 
of Texas ever since, most of the time under the emplov of the state board. 
Several years he was general missionary on the frontier of Texas. 

As a missionary his labors were greatly blessed in many persons being 
saved. Many churches, Sunday schools and prayer meetings being organ- 
ized. Has baptised a great many people. His pastorates have been equally 
successful as his work at Burnett, San Angelo, Big Springs, Midland and 
Pecos City, will testify ; building nice church'-houses at Burnett, San An- 
gelo, Big Springs and Midland. 

Hear what Dr. O. C. Pope, at the time superintendent of missions in 
Texas, says in 1883, in writing up the mission work: " Brother L. R. Mil- 
lican was called by the Burnett church two years ago. Assisted by the 
state convention, he has builded well and wisely, a handsome house of wor- 
ship, which is a credit to the denomination, and the church will report self- 
sustaining next convention. Brother M. does not make as much fuss as 
some, but when it comes to earnest, hard work, he has few superiors." Dr. 
G. \V, Smith, editor of the West Texas Baptist, and founder of Simmon's 
college says of him in writing up a missionary meeting: " Brother L. R. 
Millican, with his mild and gentle spirit and manners, was there. On first 
acquaintance one would think him too gentle and timid for western work. 
But beneath that mild exterior burns a spirit that has the courage of a 


Napoleon and tlie fortitude of a Stonewall Jackson. He knows neither fear 
nor failure." 

He is now in the rushing and busy border city of El Paso, Tex., where he 
hopes to do the greatest work of his' life. He has been in a hot nght with 
the hosts of sin for more than a year at El Paso, and was the leader in the 
battle made by the preachers against the prize tights that were to have been 
pulled off near that city. He conducted the correspondence with the Gover- 
nors of Texas, and New Mexico, and United States Attorney General Harmon 
with reference to putting down the prize fights and was one of the men who 
sent the telegram to Congressman J. V. Cockrell that brought on the legisla- 
tion which knocked the tights 3S7 miles from El Paso and clear out of the 
United States into a desert and uninhabited portion of Mexico." Children :

Maj. James Milliken was the head of this old family. He was a gentleman 
of distinction and remarkable enterprise. He possessed a large estate on 
the island of St. Christopher, in the West Indies, which still bears the name. 
Unfortunately, nearly all documents containing the family record of this 
branch were destroyed with Milliken house, by tire, in the iSth century, a 
fact confirmed by the late Sir Robert Milliken Napier "of Milliken." 

From an old history of Renfrewshire, by Crawford, we have found men- 
tion of this family and estate, from which we make the following abstracts : 
It appears that one George Houston, son of Ludovic Houston, alienated the 
house and lands of Johnston to Major James Milliken in the year of 1733, 
and he changed the name, assuming the title of "James Milliken of ^Iilli- 
ken, Esq." He dismantled the old mansion found on the estate acquired 
by him, and erected an elegant house, larger, and more modern in style". This 
has been described in quaint language and great fulness of detail in the 
old history alluded to. It was three stories in height, rustic covered, 
pavilion roofed, having a platform covered with lead at the top, with ten 
steps of a stone stair in front up to the main door, which was built after 
the Ionic order, with a portico. The front overlooked toward the East, 
with office houses in the form of a court, and a long circular colonnade 
passage extending from one end to the other. There were four nitches at 
each wing, where was a terraced green. 

Maj. James Milliken m. the widow Mary Stevens who was a lady of 
wealth in St. Christopher where she owned a large estate which eventually 
came to the Milliken family. He d. in 1741, aged 72 years; his widow d. 
in 1746, aged So years. These had issue of whom presently. 

Note — While the paternal ancestry of Maj. James Milliken, the first "of Milliken," has 
not been satisfactorily traced, we learn by his funeral escutcheon now at the Lyon office, 
Edinburg, of date Feb. 1 741, that he was descended, maternally, from the //t;/«//.''(^;/j- of 
Inchgolrig ; the Fur^^usoiis of Anchinsoul ; Haintlton Lord Belhaven : the Frazers of Knox : 
Crawford oi Flatterton ; Brisbane oi that Ilk., 2i.\\A Shades of (ireenock. The pedigree 
runs thus : — " Father, Milliken ; father's mother, Hamilton of Inchgolrig ; father's father's 
mother, Fer:::uson of Anchinsoul ; father's father's mother's mother, Hamilton Lord IJel-

I. James Milliken Esq., eldest son of Maj. James (1), succeeded as the 
second of Milliken, and made extensive and costly improvements on the 
estate. He made a pleasant bowling-green adjoining the west side of the 
mansion, having rows of tall lime trees upon the south and north ends. The 
orchards and gardens on the south side consisted of eight acres of ground 
through which the Kilbarchan stream meandered, falling down in four 
cascades. In the m
