Nathaniel Milliken^ (1). son of John'- (1), and wife I':ii/ai)elii Alj^'cr, was bap-
tized in Brattle Street Church, Boston, Mass, A|)r. 24, 1709, and settled in
Scarbro, Me., at Dunston, so-called, in 1730. He m. Aug. 5, 1731, Sarah
MuNSON^ He was a tailor bytrade, having served his apprcnticcshif) in Boston,
and his grandchildren remember having seen his large "cutting-table"' and
heavy, wrought-iron "goose." He was a deacon of the Second Parish Church
of Scarbro and was locally known as "Deacon Nathaniel." His second
wife was Anna Small, widow of Josiah TJbby, known as "Trumpeter 'Siah,"
to whom he was m. Jan. 10, 1755, and by whom he had issue. She d. Jan. 12,
1784. His house was situated between "the crossways." Date of his death
not known. Deacon MiUiken was a man of deep and sincere piety; moderate,
calm, prudent and of grave deportment; a good townsman and true friend.
There were thirteen children, by two wives, of whom with 4th generation.

/ourtb 6cncraiioit.


1. Jonathan Milliken^ (1), eldest son of Nathaniel' (1), b. in Scarbro, Me.,
June 10, 1733; m. Esther Harmon, Mar. 29, 1753, and settled on the farm in
Scarbro where Ira MiUiken subsequently lived. I think Jonathan was identi-
fied with the Union River settlement but have no evidence of his moving his
family there. He had issue thirteen children, of whom with the 5th generation.

2. Nathaniel MiUiken^ (2), second son of NathanieP (1), b. in Scarbro, Me.,
Feb. 18, 1734; d. a child.

3. Josiah MiUiken^ (1). third son of NathanieP (1), b. in Scarbro, Me., Oct. 27,
1736; m. Apr. 27, 1756, Lydia Runnells and resided in his native town. He
d. in 1764, leaving a widow and two children. The widow was m. to Peter
Kelley, Apr. 9, 1764.

4. Nathaniel MiUiken^ (3), fourth son of Nathaniel' (1), b. in Scarbro, Me.,

Apr. 12, 1738; m. Anna . He w^as a grantee on Union River in the now

town of Trenton, and as I cannot find any descendants in Western Maine, I
suppose he settled somewhere "Down East."

5. Thomas MiUiken^ (1), fifth son of NathanieP (1), b. in Scarbro, Me.. Oct.
25, 1739; m. Dec. 19, 1760, Lucy Lihby of same town. She was a daughter
of her step-mother by her first hu.sband, " Tnmipeter 'Siah." This Thomas lived
on the west side of Beech Ridge, in Scarbro. Was one of the grantees on Union
River, but as his cousin of the same name was also a prominent grantee, I can-
nf)t tell which lot was drawn by him. He had children b. in Scarbro.

6. Stephen MiUiken" (1), si.xth son of Nathaniel^ (1), b. in Scarbro, Me., Jan.
II, 1 74 1. I cannot find any record of marriage or of children, and he may have

2, 1743 ; m. to Jane Hopkins, a Quakeress of Londonderry, N. H.; was a grantee

disabled by sickness or an accident, and to save him from becoming a town charge
his relatives went from Scarbro and brought him to that town on a bed slung
between two horses; the journey was long and painful and they were nearly two
weeks on the road. He had a large family. See 5th generation.
