John Mulliken^ (1), born as early as 1680-85, his parents' names unknown, was
of Methuen, Mass. He and his daughter, Jane, purchased land of Capt. Joshua
Swan. In another conveyance, June 13, 1748, Joshua Swan, consideration ;^8o,
sold to John Mulliken, laborer, and Jane Mulliken, spinster, a part of his origi-
nal grant from the General Court on Haverhill old line, in Methuen, 40 acres
and a house. This lot of land was on the border of Salem, N. H., and on the
corner where Haverhill turns up and touches Methuen. The estate was com-
posed of i)arcels of land acquired at different times. In 1757, Joshua Swan for
;^33 sold to Joseph Sprague of Methuen, laborer, land on the west side of Haver-
hill old line, and on the same page is recorded a deed from James Long to Joseph


Sprague, " including the estate, my wife, Jane Long, bought togather with her
father, John Mulliken, of Capt. Joshua Swan and set off to my wife as dower."

In 1757, James Long gave a deed to Jimima Sprague of Methuen, called a
daughter of John Mulliken. In the same year Jimima Sprague bought back
the place on Haverhill line, in Methuen, which her deceased husband had sold,
and with it a strip of land inherited by Jane, widow of James Long, from her
father, John MulUken's estates, that fell to her share.

" John Mulliken of Methuen, husbandman, in consideration of a bond given
me by Daniel McCleary, Jr., my grandson of Methuen, husbandman, who binds
himself for ;)^ioo, to care for me in comfortable and honorable support and main-
tainance during my natural life, do give my land in Methuen, 18 acres bounded
by land of Daniel McCleary, East by Haverhill Une and James Long & Tit-
combs farm & Co., May 28, 1762. Witnessed by Daniel McCleary, Sr., and
Ebenezer Barker, June i, 1762. Recorded Oct. 22, 1765."

Attached to the foregoing "Life Lease" is a statement that James Long and
Jean his wife, daughter of John MulUken of Methuen, are the proper owners
of 40 acres of land and a house which John Mulliken and Jean bought of Joshua
Swan together. The parties agree that John Mulliken and heirs shall have
18 acres, and Jean to have 41 acres, each party to hold title in buildings and
\ acre lot under the house. James and Jean Long quit claim to honored father
the 18 acres he gave to his grandson Daniel McCleary, Jr., May 4, 1756. At the
time the division was made, 1762, Daniel got it. Witnesses: James Marsh,
Daniel McCleary and Moses Morse.

This John Mulliken could not have been a descendant of that Robert Milli-
ken whose name stands at the head of the Bradford branch. He was born as
early as 1680-85, earUer than any of the children of that Robert; besides, his
son John and family are accounted for. Robert Mulliken, son of Hugh of Bos-
ton, born Aug. 9, 1681, if he survived childhood, has not been traced. A Robert
Mulliken married Mary Hoyt in 1737. As we find mention of several branch
families in the early records in and about Boston, which are not connected with
either the Bradford, or the Alger-Millikens, we conclude that some of those
parents whose names appear in the Brattle Street church records settled not
distant from the geographical "Hub" and left children whose names crop up
in the old registers now and then. An exhaustive search might reveal records
of births that would make genealogical connections.


I. Mary Mulliken^ (1), daughter of John^ (1), wasb. in 1715; wasm. in Methuen,
Mass., Feb. 19, 1739, to Daniel McCleary. He was b. about 1707, and d.

Charlestown, Mass., from 1730 to 1748. Mortgaged his estate to Isaac Foster
in 1754, and went to Methuen and bought the Sprague estate.

3. Jimima M>lliken''(l), daughter of John''' (1), was the wife of Joseph Sprague,

Asa MuUiken^ married Rachel Campbell, daughter of Rev. Robert Campbell,
one of the early settlers of Campbelltown, Steuben Co., N. Y., and resided in
that town, where he had born two daughters and three sons whose names will
appear. Tradition makes Asa MuUiken a descendant of Robert MuUiken of

I. John Burritt Mulliken' (2), eldest son of Henry' (1), was b. in Campbell-
town, Steuben Co., N. Y., May 30, 1837; m. in 1858 to Emma Annette Batch-
elder at Chicago, 111., and d. at Detroit, Mich., Nov. 23, 1892. His boyhood
was spent on a farm near Crete, Will Co., 111. He was employed as clerk in the
drugstore of his uncle. Dr. Harvey Burritt, at ^Nlaumee City, O., at the age of
15, and later for Hon. J. M. Ashley at Toledo, O. At the age of 19 his career
as a railroad man began as mail agent on the Illinois Central Railroad, running
between Chicago and Centralia. Soon he was made station agent for the road
at Mattoon, 111., but remained only a short time, as he was transferred to the
general freight office at Chicago. A little later he entered the service of the
Galena, Chicago & Union R. R., and in August, 1858, was made the road's
agent at Rockford, 111., where he remained seven years, going from there to
Belvidere as agent for the railroad, and agent, also, for the American Express
Co. After si.x years he was appointed agent for the Chicago & Northwestern
and Rock Island & St. Louis railroads at StirUng, 111.

In May, 1874, Mr. MuUiken became a local traffic agent of the Winona &
St. Peter's R. R. at Winona, Minn. Within a year he was chosen as super-
intendent of the Peninsular Division of the Chicago & Northwestern, with
headquarters at Escanaba, Mich. In 1875 he became superintendent of the
Detroit, Lansing & Northern and the St. Louis & Saginaw Valley Railroads,
with his home and headquarters at Detroit, Mich. His last position in railroad


enterprises was vice-president and general manager of the last mentioned roads,
together with the Chicago & West Michigan Railroad, which position he held
till March, 1890, when, after having made a most honorable record, he resigned.
From this time until shortly before his death he held responsible positions as
member of the Board of Public Works of Detroit, and Manager of the Citizens
Street Railway. The MuUiken station and post office in Eaton County, Mich.,
was named in his honor.

Mr. Mulliken was a man of great executive ability, and very popular among
business men. At the time he resigned as manager of the D. L. & N. R. R. the
citizens of Detroit and railroad men of the State gave him a Jubilee reception
in one of the large halls of Detroit, as a mark of appreciation and respect as a
citizen and railroad manager.

His death, while sudden, was not unexpected to those who knew him. For
several years he was afflicted with a severe stomach and heart trouble, to such
an extent that he frequently became unconscious. Only three weeks before his
death he went with a party of friends on a shooting excursion in the northern
part of Michigan. While away he was seriously ill and returned home on
Sabbath preceding his death. On arri\dng home he seemed better, and was on
the street looking very well. He retired as usual on Tuesday night, but when
his wife called to him in the morning, he did not answer. He was beyond help,
and his departure was easy and sudden.

The attendance at his funeral of Knight Templars, railroad men from all
over the state, and business men from the city, also attested his popularity and
the high esteem in which he was held.

He was one of the organizers and active workers in the Universalist church,
and always an interested member, whether trustee or simple attendant. In re-
ligion he was reverent and candid. He thought much upon spiritual matters,
though he cared little for forms. He appreciated good literature and had a
fine sense of the artistic.

His funeral was held on Friday, Nov. 25th. The body was taken in charge
by the Knights Templars and borne to the church of Our Father. Services
were conducted by Rev. Lee S. McCoUester, pastor. Rev. Charles Fluhrer, D.D.,
of Grand Rapids, a personal friend, and Rev. Reed Stuart, of the Unitarian
Church, in the presence of a large number of friends of the deceased and in the
hearing of Mr. MuUiken's family, who remained in the pastor's study. The
floral tributes were magnificent, one being the beautiful emblem of the order,
from the Detroit Consistory, 32d degree, of which Mr. Mulliken was a member.
A handsome cross was Detroit Commandery's gift. The interment was at
Woodmere Cemetery.
