James Johnson Milliken^ (3), youngest son of Robert* (3), was b. in Kishaco-
quillas \'alle\-. Pa. — he says "a native of Lewiston, Pa." — Jan. 25, 1839; m.
Jan. I, 1872, Miss Mary A. Forster, b. Apr. 28, 1852, being one of ten chil-
dren of Mr. Albert and Antonia Forster of Santa Cruz Co., Cal., natives of
Hammelburg, Germany, and the second white child born in Santa Cruz County.
He went West in 1861, proceeding via the Isthmus of Panama, thence to
San Francisco and to Nevada Co., Cal. His first experience in mining was in
1863. He went to Virginia City, Nevada, and during the next five years devoted
his attention to the cattle business, also doing some prospecting and mining.
In 1864 he located the Carrico Mine near Austen, Nevada. From 1866 to
1878 he was engaged in agriculture in Santa Cruz Co., Cal., and was fairly
successful. In 1878 he went to Yavapai Co., Arizona. He located the famous
"Walnut Springs," which now svipply water for the smelting works at Jerome.
In 1879 he went to Lynx Creek and that year located the " Ora Platta Mine,"
now owned by the Montgomery Mining Company. In 1880 he located the
" Kishacoquillas Mine," which he sold to New York capitalists, and also dis-
covered and laid claim to the fine Mifflin group, which includes four mines —
"Solano," "Water Gulch," "Burrow," and "Mifflin" — which he stiU owns.
In 1894 he located and has since developed the "Homestead Mine," where he
and children now reside. In addition to these he owned the " Golden Fleece
Mines" No. 2 and No. 3, extensions of the famous "Mud Hole Mine" that he
sold to the Pennsylvania Gold Mining Co., in 1898. He says: "With all the ups
and downs I am now comfortably situated with my family around me." His
address is Walker, Yavapai Co., Arizona. Issue as follows:

2. Margaret Johnson Milliken'^ (3), ninth daughter of Robert"* (3), b. Jan. 10,
1843; d. ^lay 20. 1845.


I. Samuel Milliken' (5), eldest son of Foster* (1), b. Aug. 9, 1820; m. Feb. 5,
1862, Miss Hettie Fullerton, b. June 18, 1821, daughter of Alexander and
Sarah (Ash) Fullerton of Philadelphia, and d. June 18, 1898. He began in
business early so as to aid his widowed mother. His good handwriting secured
him a place in a prothonotary's office; afterwards he entered the employ of
Abraham \'alentine, lived in his family, and had a position in his store. He was
the first freight agent of the Pennsylvania R. R. Company at HolHdaysburg,
but gave up his position because he could not conscientiously work on the Sab-
bath. For some time he was in the grain business in Philadelphia, and after-
wards in some transactions in Elmira, N. Y., but the greater part of his busi-
ness hfe was spent in New York City as agent for the Phoenix Company, and
others, handling iron rails and beams. He retired from active business many
years before his death, but had the pleasure of seeing his sons developing his









business successfully. There were two suns and one daughter, of whom with
6th generation.

2. Moses Thompson MlUiken'' (3), second son of Foster' (1), I). Feb. 22, 1822;
m. Sept 6. uSji. Caroline V.alentine of Bellefonte, Centre Co., Pa., and
was always a resident of that town. He was an iron-master, being a member
of the firm of "\'alcntine's Furnase & Forges." His death occurred in 0>ka-
loosa. la., in the fall of 1S71. One daughter. See 6th generation.

3. Hon. James Milliken^ (4), third son of Foster'' (1), b. July 23, 1824, of whom
we nu'.ke extract from the history of Centre County, Pennsylvania, to wit: Be-
fore ^Ir. Millikcn was of age he was entrusted by ]\'Ies.srs. Valentine with the
agency for the sale of their iron in the state of New York, and was located for
that purpose at Elmira, N. Y., for several years. When this agency closed,
his uncles, who were leading commercial men of MifBin County, persuaded
him to join them in business at Lewiston, Pa. Not satisfied with the limited
sphere of business at Lewiston, Mr. Milliken removed to Philadelphia in 1851,
and engaged in the flour and grain commission business, in the firm of Richard-
son & Alilliken; but after a few years he engaged in a business more suited to
his tastes, the manufacture of iron. He was associated for a number of years
with the tirm of Reeves, Buck & Co., which became, and is at present, the
Phoenix Iron Company, of Philadelphia and Phcenixville, Chester Co., Pa.

While he resided in Philadelpliia Mr. Milliken took an active part in puV)lic
affairs, and by liis perseverance, intelligence, and high character took a promi-
nent position among the leading men of that city. At the outbreak of the war
of 1861 he was especially prominent. He was a member of the Board of Trade,
director of several railroad companies, and was one of the originators of the
great Union League that did so much in behalf of the country in suppressing
the Rebellion. He was made a member of the committee, of which the mayor
was chairman, which distributed a bounty of several millions to the volunteers.
On the occasion of the great city meeting to take action upon the firing upon
Fort Sumter, when masses of excited men surged through the streets, Mr. Alil-
liken mounted a temporary platform in front of the old National Hall and made
a remarkably able speech, commencing: "Fellow-citizens, — With this calam-
ity upon us we have ceased to be Republicans, we have ceased to be Democrats;
we have ceased knowing party lines or recognizing party ties, for in this trying
hour, as patriots and citizens, we should rise above them all, and stand firm
for our country and for a government for ourselves." In this vein he dwelt at
length upon the issues forced upon us by the Rebellion, and when he closed a
mass of men that blocked INIarket Street as far as the eye could reach made re-
sponse to his patriotism in cheers that resounded far and wide upon the mid-
night air through the city.

Mr. Milliken's excessive labor in business and in pubhc affairs told upon his
health, and by the time the war closed he had to retire altogether. He then
devoted several years to study and travel, extending his excursions several times
over most of the countries of Europe, spent two winters in the tropics, one in
Spain and Italy, and one in Egypt. He crossed the great Arabian desert, scaled
Mount Sinai, and visited the ancient city of Petra. He subsequently travelled
through the Holy Land, Greece, and Turkey, and afterwards passed a winter
in Mexico.

The straitened circumstances of the family deprived Mr. Milhken of even a
common-school education and, of course, classical training. Nevertheless, he


acquired several foreign languages. His remarkable fluency of style and force of
diction were on that account surprising, and indicated him to be a man of genius
and brain power. His address in the State Convention, May lo, 1882, in nom-
inating Gen. James A. Beaver as the Republican candidate for governor, has
been described by the public press of the day as "a model, and one of the most
eloquent ever delivered in a poHtical body of that character." Mr. Milliken
was the author of several brochures, to be found in the pubHc Ubraries of New
York and Philadelphia, notably, "A Tour of Travel in Lower Egypt and the
Desert of Sinai," "A Voyager's Letters from Mexico," etc., etc.

His characteristic as a business man was never to enter upon any work his
head and heart did not approve, consequently he never relinquished anything
he set out to do. An example of this was his resuscitation of a prominent rail-
way and coal company of Philadelphia, whose fortunes seemed to be aban-
doned by nearly all deeply interested in it. Resisted even by many whose
interests he was serving, he fought its officers in court and out of court, and
made the corporation one entitled to the confidence of the people. At the close
of the controversy the stockholders presented Mr. Milliken, as a testimonial,
stock of the company, and a service of silver of value altogether of ten thou-
sand dollars. He decUned the stock, but accepted the silver service as a souvenir
of their regard.

He had been one of the successful men of our times, standing in the first
rank in every relation of life, and. in his life and character exemplifying the
fullest illustration of the advice of the celebrated bishop of England, who, on
being asked l^y a noble lord what he should give his son to enable him to get
on in the world, replied: "Give him poverty and parts." Died Feb. 4, 1902.

4. Marion L. Milliken' (1), only daughter of Foster^ (1), b. in Mifflin Co., Pa.,
about seventy-three years ago, and d. at Bellefonte, Pa., Feb. 18, 1902, just
two weeks after her brother James (who d. Feb. 4, 1902, in New York) of some
disease of the brain. She was for many years actively identified with various
reUgious and charitable organizations in Bellefonte. A consistent member of
the Presbyterian Church, her life was largely devoted to church work. For
several winters Miss Milhken made her home with Mrs. Samuel Milliken in
Plainfield, N. J., returning to Bellefonte for the summer. She was the last
member of the Milliken family once prominent in social and business circles
of Bellefonte, Pa. The house in which she d. was once the home of her brother,
Moses T. ]Milliken, and latterly the home of her mother, brother James, and
herself. She was buried in Union Cemetery.
