Oct. 3, 1856, speaks for itself:

Emanuel Milliken.

Last in the painful record of mortality, we are called on to chronicle the death
of our dear brother, Emanuel ^SliUikin. He was a native of Ireland, born in
1811. His parents d. when he was but eighteen months old and left him in the
care of an elder brother and sister. Erom an infant there was something more
than the ordinary in his amiable disposition. He was rarely known, even when
a child, to speak, or do, wrong. He came to Canada in 1822. In early life he
was made the subject of converting grace, and became a member of the Wes-
leyan ciuirch when about 15 years of age. His love for his church was strong
and his connection with it continued till his life's end. For many years he en-
joyed the blessing of perfect love. He was a man sound in faith, of qn e.xem-
plary piety, useful in life, and being dead yet speaketh. He came to this circuit
about nine years ago, and for seven years sustained acceptably the office of an
e.xhorter. A man more valued among his neighbors I never knew, and from
among those without he had a good report; and amongst his own brethren,
official and private, he was held in high esteem. In his death the circuit sus-
tains a severe loss, but our loss is his eternal gain. He breathed out his soul
into the hands of his Saviour, Oct. 3, 1856, aged 45 years. For .several days
before his death he was almost or entirely unconscious, and his only anxiety
seemed to be concerning his family. He left a wife and nine children.

His son informs the compiler of this book that his father, when the settle-
ment was new and he was a local preacher, often walked many miles where a
horse could not travel, to carry the gospel to the isolated neighborhoods. He
also taught, — until regular schools w'ere estabhshed, — a night school for the
