my head and said, 'I have no children, and, boy, I will remember you.' My
father afterward told me that uncle John was very rich.

"About the year 1853, while I was working in the nail mills between Green-
bush and Troy, N. Y., a stranger came and inquired for a family named Mil-
liken. I was working nights and he came over to my house. I asked him what
he wanted and he said he had some important papers for me in his trunk in a
baggage car, from my uncle John Milliken in the West. He was asked to leave
these documents for me at the ' Mansion House' in Troy. In a few days I called
for them, but the proprietor said the stranger took them away the day before.
While I was at work in the Rolling Mills in Auburn, N. Y., this man appeared
and inquired for me of the superintendent. When I was pointed out, he said
I had a hot job and that when he returned from Europe, whither he was then
going, I would not have to work so hard. His next appearance was at Wyan-
dotte, Mich. He inquired of the boss for me, and when I was pointed out said
he only wanted to keep track of me. Nothing has since been heard from him.
Uncle John MiUiken died at West Camp, N. Y., and was buried there. I
want to find out where his will is recorded."

Hezekiah MiUiken died about the year 1838, and was buried at Saugerties,
Ulster Co., N. Y. His wife died about three years later. They then lived in a
little town near Saugerties named Bristol. Children's names, Hannah, Sarah,
Rachel, Charlotte, Hezekiah, James, and Richard.

3. Sarah Milliken^. daughter of Hezekiah- (1), was m. to Richard Layman, at
Pavilion on the Hudson river, who was a farmer and tanner. She d. in 1840.

4. Rachel Milliken^. daughter of Hezekiah- (1), was m. to Patrick Kelley, a
puddler in the iron rolling mills.

5. Charlotte Milliken^. daughter of Hezekiah- (1), was m. to Myers Brink.

6. James Milliken^, son of Hezekiah- (1), was rail-roller in the iron mills, and
d. about 1876. He left a family. Wife's name unknown,

7. Richard Milliken^, son of Hezekiah^ (1), was a seaman and circumnavigated
the globe two or three times; came back to Saugerties, N. Y., and m.; became a
Presbyterian minister and preached at Kingston, N. Y., where he d. and was
buried. His wife, whose name does not appear, was of Flatbush, N. Y. He
had issue.

The familv records were destroyed at the time the British burned Kingston,
N. Y., which then contained the State House wherein all documents relating to
the early proprietors were deposited. The family tradition handed down from
father to son, assigns to this branch of the clan a French origin. When Na-
thaniel IMilliken 2d was distributing his household goods after the death of his
v.ife, an old Dutch chest was found and he remarked that it had been brought
from Holland by some of his ancestors. He was then asked if the Millikens were
Dutch, and he answered, "No; they are of French descent, but the chest and
china came from the Trumpores, who were Dutch."

The Millikens were early extensive land owners but in some way failed to
secure a vahd title to their estates, or lost the record of their claim, and others
settled there. We do not know certainly the name of the emigrant head of this
family, but there is an old parchment deed preserved among the rehques and his-
toric documents at Washington's Headquarters, Newburg, N. Y., of date 1758,
to John Milliken, deposited by Clark Galatian, and the appended note in the
Catalogue says Milliken and Samuel Crawford were early settlers on the patent
to Jas. Alexander in the town of Montgomery. As the lands of the original
Nathaniel Milhken lay some six miles back of Newburg, where the patent was
located, we may assume with plausibihty that this John Milliken was the emi-
grant ancestor, and in the face of the family tradition the compiler of this volume
will assume that the family came direct from Scotland or the north of Ireland
along with other AliUikens who settled in the same and adjoining counties.
Crawford, Alexander, and Montgomery are Scotch and Scotch-Irish surnames.
They were descended maternally, as will appear, from the Dutch family of
Trumi)ore, but the alliance was in the State of New York. These Millikens were
slaveholders, and a descendant now living remembers the last of the " ^Nlilhken
Niggers," a very old colored man who died when he was a boy. The ISIilliken
estate included Orange Lake and the surrounding lands. It was in Ulster
County, now Orange County, N. Y.

Nathaniel Milliken^, from whom the families in and about Newburg, N. Y., are
descended in a direct line was an officer in the Revolutionary army and was
killed at the battle of Fort Montgomery. He had an only child.
Nathaniel Milliken'', who married Katherine Trumpore of Dutch blood, by
whom he had four children, namely, Maria, Nathaniel, Margaret, and Edmund..

John Millikin, born in Ireland, probably on the Isle Magee, went from Bel-
fast to Scotland when about eighteen years of age. His parents' names are not
known. There is a tradition that three of his brothers came to America direct
from Ireland, but his surviving sons do not know of such relatives. John went
to Kilmarnock, Scotland. W'as apprenticed to a shoemaker in early hfe, but
confinement at the bench did not agree with his active temperament, and he
abandoned the craft. He had a small store at Kilmarnock at one time. Was
very fond of running horses, an expert rider, and followed the races until too
heavy for the saddle. Was a farmer. He married J.^net Reid, a native of
Ayrshire, and lived near Kilmarnock until 1844, when the family — save two
sons who had .sailed in 184T, and one who remained in Scotland another year —
embarked on the ship "Brilliant" with six hundred passengers, for America.
They were nine weeks on the ocean and for six weeks did not see land. John
Reid, a nephew of Mrs. Millikin, came with them. They landed at Detroit,
Mich., but removed to now Almont, and joined the "Scotch Settlement" there
when the country w-as covered with a wilderness and when Indians abounded.
Among the emigrant settlers were families named Jenniss, Shaw, Bement. Rogers,
Outchers, and IngHss. Sometimes the emigrants, following an Indian trail, a
hundred in a day, would water their {)onies at the Millikins' well, and many
tarried with the family through the night, sleeping ui)on the lloor. The land was
good, the forest was cut away and fruitful fields e.xpanded into broad farms.
