Robert John Milliken, said to have been an uncle of James MiUiken Esq.,
first of the Milliken b;irony, Renfrewshire, Scotland, was a native of Ayrshire
and a scion of an old and respectable family of agricultural pursuits, who early
established themselves on the southern border of Caledonia. In consequence
of rehgious persecution he, with others of the name, when a young man removed
to the north of Ireland and sat down not distant from Dromore, in the County
of Down, where he married Agnes MacFarland, descended from an old titled
Scottish clan through a junior branch settled in Ireland during the early years
of the Plantation of Ulster. There are some reasons for beUeving that this
Robert Milliken was twice married and that sons and daughters were born to him
before the advent of James and Hugh through whose letters the name of their
father was found by kindred in America. The fragmentary and disconnected
parish records extant, now deposited in Dublin, are not sufficiently complete
to estabUsh full genealogical associations; besides, the frequent occurrence of
the same Christian names, of contemporary dates, renders the identification of
individuals exceedingly difficult; this holds good also with census return records
kept in Belfast.

The crest of this family differs shghtly from that of James Milliken Esq.,
of Renfrewshire, recorded at the Lyon Office in Edinburgh, and is described
as follows: "A demi-hon royally crowned gules, holding in his dexter paw a
sword, ppr.," with the ancient MiUiken motto, "Regard Bien."

CHILDREN OF ROBERT JOHN' MILLIKEN AND AGNES MacFARLAND.

1. James Milliken" (1). son of Robert (1), b. near Dromore, Ireland, m. Eliza-
beth Davis, and was brought to America with his family in 1772, by his son
Samuel, and was settled on the Conewago, near Harrisburg, Lancaster Co.,
Pa. He d. soon after his emigration, and was buried at Lancaster, Pa. He
had issue one son and four daughters, of whom with 3d generation.

2. Hugh Milliken^ (1), second son of Robert^ (1), was a farmer near Dromore,
Countv Down, Ireland, and' did not come to America. He was the ancestor
of a numerous race of Millikens and ISIiUigans, some of whom remained in their
fatherland, while others followed their kindred to Pennsylvania and Ohio; and
their posterity, a prosperous, intelligent, and respectable people, are scattered
into nearly every state in the Union.*

* There is an old paper in possession of Emily J. Dewees, Hollidaysburg, Pa., written
by Rev. Samuel John Milliken, in which he has stated of Samuel MilUken, his father: "He
returned to Ireland and brought in four men who had to work for him four or five years;
one was Pat Hughes. The last time my father came from Ireland, a David Milliken
came over with him. They were cousins. I think he was Hugh Milliken's son. He
married Mary Beatx in 1787. They went to Ohio in 1802. Had a large family. Some
of Hugh Milliken's family came to this country' afterwards, but I do not know where they
settled."

As James Milliken had but one brother, this David must have been his (Hugh's) son.
See "Millikens of Cumberland Co., Pa."



332 MILLIKEiVS OF KISHACOQUILLAS VALLEY, PA.

CHILDREN OF JAMES AND ELIZABETH DAVIS.

I. Samuel Milliken^ (1), son of James^ (1), b. in Dromore, Ireland, 1746, be-
came the recognized head of one branch of the MilUken family settled in Penn-
sylvania. He m. in 1775 Miss Margaret Foster, who was b. in Lancaster
Co., Pa., in 1753. As proven by his certificate of church membership, he pre-
ceded his father and came to America in 1768. (In this document his sur-
name was spelled "Milligan," an error of the parish clerk.) * He was a linen
manufacturer and merchant, and located on the Schuylkill River, near Phila-
delphia. He made no less than five voyages to America, and on one of his
return trips brought his father to his then residence on the Conewago. Soon
after the death of his father he joined emigrants, who had been friends and ac-
quaintances in Ireland, and located a colony in the beautiful and richly fertile
valley known as Kishacoquillas, in Mifflin Co., Pa., not distant from the Ju-
niata River, which territory was then comprised in Cumberland Co., Pa. He
made location of a large tract of land, parts of which are still owned by his de-
scendants. Here Samuel MilHken became a farmer. This settlement deter-
mined the reUgious character of the inhabitants of the whole valley for many
years as staunch Scotch-Irish Presbyterians.

The district was then an Indian frontier, and many harvests were gathered
by this sterling yeomanry with their rifles on their backs. One of the conspic-
uous peaks of the mountain range, which encloses the valley on the north, per-
petuates the name by its designation of "Milliken's Knob" and "MilUken's
High Top." In the same range, but beyond the limits of the present county,
there is further recognition of the family name in "Milligen's Cove."

A letter read at a recent centennial celebration of the First Presbyterian Church
of Kishacoquillas Valley, written by Samuel Milliken's wife, was addressed to
him in Washington's army at Valley Forge. He had, with certain neighbors,
when learning of the suffering and distress of the army, collected voluntary
contributions of food and clothing, and with their teams dehvered the same to
the soldiers then stationed at Valley Forge, a distance of 150 miles. He d.
Oct. 28, 1804. t There were six sons and three daughters, of whom with 4th
generation.

2. Jane Milliken^ (1), eldest daughter of James^ (1), b. near Dromore, Ireland;
came to America in 1772 with her father's family, and became the wife of Robert
Patterson of Scotch-Irish stock; said to have been married in Ireland.

3. Nancy Milliken^ (1), second daughter of James- (1), Ig. near Dromore, Ire-
land, was m. to Robert Garner in Pennsylvania. When, in 1774, Robert and
John Campbell removed their families from near Wilmington, Del., to Mifflin

* "This is to certify that Samuel Milligan is a prodistant, born & bred in the Parish
of Dramore, County Down, and his behaviour has always been, in every respect, regular
and such as to recomcnd him to the esteem and friendship of all his acquaintances & may
be received into any Congregation of his Society, wherever Providence may cast his lot.

till he m. Miss Nancy Milliken, an event supposed to have been solemnized
in 1776 or 1777. Having spent twenty-four years in Mifflin Co., Pa., this family
removed to Centre County and located on a large tract of land near the head
of Si)ruce Creek, in Ferguson Township, where, we supjiose, they passed the

ing merchants of Lewiston, Pa. They controlled the grain trade in MifHin and other ad-
joining counties, shipping large quantities to Philadelphia and Baltimore. Before the con-
struction of the canal, the grain was shipped in arks on the river; afterwards, in canal boats.
These merchants were men of influence and wealth; they owned several farms. They were
induced to engage in the iron business and by misplaced confidence lost heavily. James
Milliken, being advanced in life, retired from business. Joseph, full of energy, became a
