Emanuel Millikin and his four sons from one of the southern counties of Scot-
land, })robably Ayrshire or Dumfrieshire, went with \Mlham of Orange as
soldiers into Ireland, and fought at the Battle of Boyne, July 12, 1690. In con-
sideration of their noble service they received a grant of land in the Parish of
Killenumery, County Leitrim, with homestead at Drumduff, three miles west
of Drumnahare, near the county of Shgo line, and some ten miles from the city of
that name from whence so many families of the Millikins have sailed for Amer-
ica. It has always been an agricultural district and the Millikins who have
lived there have been farmers. Emanuel ^lillikin spent the remainder of his
days on his grant of land. The name of his wife is not known nor the time of
his death. Somewhere not distant from his home, in an old churchyard, and
unmarked by any inscribed monument, the mortal remains of the old and hon-
ored soldier were laid to rest. There is an old family tradition that has been
told at the firesides of hundreds of the Millikin homes, that runs as follows: A
mother had lost several of her sons by death in infancy, and dreamed that if
she would name the babe then sleeping at her side Emaxuel, it would be
spared and grow to manhood; this she did, and the son became an honor to
Ms parents. This name was considered so sacred that it has been handed down
through no less than eight generations of this Millikin family, and is still borne
by the descendants.

When John jMiUikin of Ohio visited Ireland, in i860, as administrator on the
estate of his kinsman, Charles Millikin, he procured a full copy of the original
land grant, or lease, and we had anticipated its publication in this volume, but
the document cannot be found. John Millikin also caused to be examined the
registers in the parishes of Killenumery, Killerry, Coolony, Ballysummiton,
Drumnahare and Balhntocher, but found no vital records of an early date. The
records for the parish of Killenumery only go back to 1810. The only inscribed
monument known to exist in the neighborhood is at the grave of an Emanuel
Millikin, who died March 17, 1798, aged 74 years. At the disestabhshment of
the church of Ireland in 1870, the Parish Registers were handed over to the
Registrar General and lodged in the Pubhc Record Office in Dubhn, and the only
available documents are the Census Records to be found in the Free Public
Library, in Belfast.

The descendants of Emanuel Milhkin, the first known head of this family,
are now scattered into Scotland, England, Canada, United States, and Austra-
lasia, and must be numbered by thousands. They ha\e developed the peculiar
traits of character so conspicuous in the Scotch, and Scotch-Irish, people. Dur-
ing the Methodist reformations in Ireland, many of the MiUikins became com-
municants of that church, and the families in Canada and the State of Ohio are
nearly all of this faith.

Many to whom the compiler has forwarded letters of inquiry with postage
enclosed for rej^ly, have persistently declined to furnish any information, and
this must be the only apology for the imperfect condition of the record.

I. Emanuel Milliken" (2), son of EmanueP (1), was b. in the Lowlands of Scot-

land as early as 1670, and fought by the side of liis father and hrulhcrs at the
lioyne. under William of Orange, July 12, i6go. He was married, — to whom
we do not know, — .and settled on the land grant in county Leitrim, Ireland.

Til the American pedigree this man is re|)resented to be the father of Thomas,
Richard, and Roger, whose families came to Canada and the United States.
This cannot be correct; they were born too late. There was another Emanuel
Millikin. whose gravestone stands in the Killenumery parish churchyard, and
tlic inscription shows that he was born in 1724, and died Mar. 17, 1798, aged
74 vears. Tliis man was also too early born to have been the father of Thomas,
Richard, and Roger, although he must have been of the thirrl generation. We
are convinced that there are missing links in the pedigree written out by John
Millikin of Ohio, but in the absence of dates it is now impossible to make proper
connections.

2. John Millikin" (1), second son of EmanueP (1), came with his father and
brothers from the Lowlands of Scotland, and fought at the battle of Boyne,
lulv 12, i6go, being then a young man. We do not know where this son took
up his residence. He had three sons (probably daughters also) named Thomas,
Christopher and John. See 3d generation.

3. David Millikin" (1), third son of EmanueU (1), also came to Ireland with
William of Orange, and was in the battle of Boyne, July 12, 1690. His wife's
name does not appear. He settled in County Sligo, and had issue three sons
(probaljly daughters) named Patrick, David, and Emanuel, of whom with 3d
generation.

4. James Millikin" (1), fourth son of Emanuel* (1), went from the Lowlands of
Scotland with his father and brothers when young, and fought with them in
King William's army at the battle of Boyne; and after the war settled some-
where in the north of Ireland. His family came to the United States, and may
have been identical with the ^Nlillikins in Washington and Greene Counties, Penn.,
who came from near Dromore, County Down, Ireland.

CHIUDREN OF EMANUEL MILLIKIN 2d.

1. John Millikin^ (2), eldest son of EmanueP (2), b. in County Leitrim, or
Sligo, Ireland; m. there Jane Walker, and settled at Castle Bar, in the County
Mayo, where he continued as a farmer until well advanced in years, and raised
a family of six children. He finally sailed for Canada and his wife died at sea.
He settled in South Sherbrook, County of Lanark, Ont., where he d. before his
son John removed to Lambton County. His two sons and four daughters were
named, Rebecca, Jane, Margery, John, Ann, Emanuel.

2. Thomas Millikin^ (2), second son of EmanueP (2), b. in County Sligo, or
Leitrim, Ireland, as early as 1785; was m. to Mary Boon (one says Elizabeth
Boon) and lived on a farm. He d. in Ireland, and his widow and children came
to .\merica, settHng mostly in Ohio. Mrs. Milhkin d. in Johnston, O., at the
age of 55 years. Children's names, Emanuel, Mary, John, Jane, Thomas,
Rebecca, George, Eliza, and Roger.

3. Roger Millikin' (1), third son of Emanuel- (2), was b. in County of Sligo,
Ireland, as early as 1780; m. Mary J.\ckson, daughter of John and Catherine
(.Anderson) Jackson, who was b. in 1782, and d. in 1878, at Smiths Falls, Ont.,
aged 94 years. Mr. ISIillikin d. in the prime of life in Ireland, while his children

were small, his youngest son, George, being only three months old. They li^■ed
in an Episcopal parish near the towns of Ballintocher and Drumnahare, and
about 8 miles from Sligo City, close to Leitrim county line. The farm was
leased from Landlord Farrell, who, becoming reduced in circumstances, came
to live in the MiUikin house. The family then went over the Leitrim line, and
bought a piece of land and built a plain stone house, but continued to shelter
their horses and cows in Landlord Farrell's barns. Here Mrs. MiUikin lived
with her children until 1831, when they sold out and sailed for Canada.

The principal cause for leaving Ireland was Roman CathoUc persecution.
A Miss Farrell, the daughter of Landlord Farrell, was converted under Metho-
dist instrumentality in the city of Sligo, and opened a Sabbath school in one of
the rooms of Mrs. jNIillikin's house. This so exasperated the Romanists in the
neighborhood that they commenced to disturb the family. At one time they
scattered their hay over the farm. Then their hired man, who was a Catholic,
informed them that the Protestants would all be murdered on a certain night.
Thomas and John Milhkin put their guns in order and placed them by the head
of their bed, and one night while John was awake, he heard a window smashed
and shouted to Thomas, "Wake up, the boys have come!" They instantly
seized their guns and made ready to fire on the assailants, but they fled; not,
however, until they had destroyed every window in the house save one. At
another time the Catholics made an attempt to burn the MiUikin house.

About this time Emanuel MiUikin had returned to Ireland from Canada on
business, and advised Mrs. MiUikin to seU out and come to America; this she did,
with the expectation of sailing on the same ship with this kinsman, but he was
detained, and she with her children, in company with another Mrs. MiUikin and
family, crossed the Atlantic. They sailed up the St. Lawrence to Montreal,
and from that city to Brookville. The vessel was towed by horses and oxen.
They were two days making a journey of thirty miles between Brookville and
Smiths Falls, where a niece of Mrs. MiUikin's, a Mrs. Robert Walker, resided.
Here land was purchased and a shanty put up : a low storied affair, covered with
spUt logs, hollowed out to carry off the rain. This was afterwards enlarged and
shingled. The mother remained on the farm with her son John until 1847, or
1848, when she went to visit her sons who had settled in Ohio; she returned to'
her Canadian home in 1863. Children's names, Thomas, John, Richard, Alex-
ander, Roger, George.

4. Richard Emanuel Millikin'' (1), son of EmanueP (2), b. in Killargue? in
Nov., 1777; m. in 1815, Mary Stuart, and hved in Drumduff, where his sons
and a daughter were born. He d. Mar. 2, 1863, aged 86 years. His sons were
named James and John. See 4th generation.

CHILDREN OF JOHN MILLIKIN 1st.

1. Thomas MiUikin'' (3), eldest son of John^ (1), d. in Ireland without leaving a
family.

2. Christopher MiUikin^ (1), second son of John^ (1), lived at Drumduff, on a
part of the land grant; later, moved to Drumnahare, County Leitrim. He m.
Ann Charleton, but did not leave issue. The connections of this man are not
certainly known. John MiUikin of Rusheen, Ireland, makes him the father of
John who m. Sarah Johnston, while the American pedigree makes him a
brother. In the absence of dates we cannot settle this cjucstion.
