true type of the early settlers who made Ohio what it is. Mrs. Millikin was a
woman of rare strength of character, of magnificent physical development, and
sunny temperament. They were both generous and broadminded, and the
homestead was a rendezvous for all in need. They kept open house and hearth
with the prodigal hospitality characteristic of the pioneers, but left their large
family all in comfortable circumstances. To be "just plain farmers" with them
means now a good deal of thrift, comfort, and somewhat of luxuries. There

1. Thomas Millikin* (5), eldest son of Roger^ (1), was b. in Ireland, and came
to Canada with his mother, brothers, and sisters, in 183 1; and later moved to
Bloomfield, O., where he lived for many years, owning a fine farm there. He

Kerfoot, Township of Montague, in the County of Lanark, near Smiths Falls,
Ont., by Rev. Wilham McFadden. Mrs. Millikin was b. Mar. 22, 1815, and d.

daughter died, and he went to live with his daughter, Mrs. Kerfoot, where he
remains, at the age of 90, in comparatively good health. He helped build the
first Methodist church at Smiths P'alls, and was class leader, steward, and
trustee. In 1838, the year of his marriage, he was drafted to serve in the Re-
beUion and spent his honeymoon in the army at Brookville, while his bride re-
mained on the farm with his mother.

His farm consisted of 250 acres, and while in Montague he kept 9 horses,
15 cows, 30 head of young stock, and 50 sheep. There were eight children.

his kinswoman, who afterwards became his wife, and her brother, John B.
MiUikin. For several years he worked on the Ohio and Pennsylvania canal,
as stone mason, in the neighborhood of Pittsburgh. During this time he made
some negotiation toward purchasing a farm at $35 per acre, which is now the
heart of Allegheny City, Pa. Later on, he went to Gustavus, Trumbull Co., O.,
where was then a wilderness, purchased a hundred acre tract of land, and carved
out his farm from dense woods. As soon as a home was provided, he took to
himself his Mary, daughter of Thomas and Eliza (Boon) Millikin. In 185 1,
he sold his farm in Gustavus, and purchased one of 160 acres in Rowland Town-
ship, Trumbull Co., O., a short distance from the now city of Warren. The
principal motive for this change was that his family might enjoy better educa-
tional advantages than were possible in the more remote district. By hard work
and frugal living, he accumulated a good competency for the time, so that when
old age forced him to relinquish active labor, he left the farm and moved to a
house he had built in the city of \^'arren, where he hved the balance of his days.
