The Millikens of Isle Mai^uc, ( Duiily ol Anlriin, Irclaiul, i .ma- iioui
Scotland during the Ulster plantation, about 1615, and families of tiiis luune
have domiciled there ever since. Isle Magee, not distant from Ikdfast,
contains 7043 acres and the present population is 3100. There are no
parish records of an early ilate known to exist, and ancestral names and
connections cannot be found. It may be assumed with plausibility that
other Milliken families in Aiiltini, of whom there were many, are closely
related to this stock.

Magee. About 90 years ago he moved to Lochhead in the same Island
and established himself as a farmer. He d. in 1845 ; his wife d. in 1839.

and d. June 24, 1856. Mr. Milliken came to America when a young man
and settled in Pennsylvania. He was a blacksmith by trade and carrieil
on business for several years, but subsequently bought a farm in Miller
Township, Huntingdon Co., Pa., and spent his last years as a farmer. His
ancestors were Presbyterians, but he united with the Methodists late in life.
He d. May 13, 1872. There were three children, one of whom, a son, d. in

of the committee of Belfast Presbytery in charge of church extension in the
city, to begin the work of gathering a congregation and building a church
in the Woodvale district. After worshiping a few years in a hall, and
when 150 families had signified their intention of joining the congregation,
they built a large and beautiful stone church capable of accommodating
1,000 people, at a cost of ^5,000. The congregation is composed chiefly
of operatives in mills and laboring classes, and consequently the mem-
bership is subject to great fluctuations. He m. Miss McCuthen of Dub-

Two of three brothers went from the Lowlands of Scotland into Ulster,
Ireland, during religious persecution, settled there and raised families. They
were Presbyterians of genuine Covenanting stock. Mr. Matthew H. Mil-
liken writes that he believes the two brothers of this family who came from
Scotland to Ulster were named Robert ?ind /avies. They were refugees and
no recorded trace of them is known to exist. One James Milliken of Bally-
ceagh, once visited James of Ravarra, and by " comparing notes" they de-
cided that they represented, as descendents, the two brothers.

James Milliken, date of birth and death not known, came from Moira or
Bainbridge, Co. Down, Ireland, to Ravarra, Co, Down, to reside, early in
