iHiUiknts of (Cumbcrlauii (tinmlit. Pa.

This family is descended from Robert-John Milliken' of Dromore, County
Down, Ireland, and is closely related to the branch under the designation,
'■ Millikens of Kishacoquillas Valley," and " ^Millikens of Washington County,
Pa."

David Milliken^ (1), son of Hugh Alilliken,- who was a son of Robert-John
Milliken of Dromore, Ireland, where he was b. in 1749, and was in his eighteenth
year when in 1766 he came with his mother, brothers and sisters and settled
in Cumberland Co, Pa. They were assessed in that portion known as the
Kishacoquillas \'alley, Mifflin County, as the public records do prove. Mr.
Milliken enlisted and served, probably in the Pa. militia, in the war of the
Revolution, although no record has been found to verify this statement save
such as was handed down in his family. He often related the privations and
sufferings of the soldiers during the war and of his own capture by the British.
He was not a prisoner long, however, before he managed to make his escape
with one of his comrades. They did not enjoy their freedom more than a few
days. Having gone some distance from their captors undiscovered, they con-
gratulated themselves on their good fortune when, by a sudden turn in their
course, they were brought face to face with some officers of the enemy's
army. The ready native wit of the Irishman served them in this emer-
gency, and their explanation concerning their identity being satisfactory, they



348 MILLIKENS OF CUMBERLAND COUNTY, PA.

were allowed to continue on their journey. This meeting furnished a clue to
the enemy, and mounted officers soon covered the route that had taken the
refugees two days to travel. They were overtaken, recaptured, and each received
thirty-nine lashes on his bare back, well laid on, the honored scars of which
they carried down to their graves.

In 1782 Mr. Milliken received an honorable discharge from the army and
returned to his home in the Kishacoquillas Valley, where he soon afterwards,
probably in 1783-4, m. Mary Beatty. This couple resided thereuntil 1793,
when homesteads in Ohio were offered on such liberal terms by the Government
that he was induced to remove to that land of promise. He was granted land
in Harrison County, near the present town of Cadiz, where their two last children
were born. He d. Dec. 10, 1833, aged 77 years, and was interred in Cadiz,
where his will was recorded. His widow d. in Union Co., O., in the fall of
1843, agt;d 85 years. For children see the 2d generation.

Abstract of David Milliken's Grant.

In the Land Office at Harrisburg, Pa., a record of a grant of land was found
from which the following abstract was copied :

" March 29, 1796, to David Milliken, 300 acres, situate in Armagh Town-
ship, in IMifflin County, called ' Belmont.' Recites that the tract was surveyed
in persuance of a warrant dated the 29th January 1794 granted to John Milliken
who by will dated 26 February 1794 devises the same to Thomas and David
Milliken and the said Thomas Milliken by deed dated 27th October 1794

Dolly MacFarland Millikin of the Dromore stock, who came over about
the same time. By the will of his brother, John Milliken, of date Feb. 26,
1794, he, with his brother David Milliken, received 300 acres of land in
Armagh Township, Mifflin Co., Pa., called " Bellmont," and by deed of same
date this Thomas released all his right in said land to the said David his brother.
Thomas ]\Iilliken m. a widow Elizabeth Sinclair who had several children
by her former husband. He made his will Jan. 7, 1832, in which he mentions
children named Margaret, Isabella, Robert, Jane, Sarah, and Jolm deceased,
who were his legal heirs. To his wife he gave $150, and all that was scheduled
in connection with his will which she possessed before her marriage to him.

On June 9th, 1840, eight years after the death of her husband, Elizabeth
Milliken of Chartiers Township, Washington Co., Pa., made her will in
which she mentions her son, Samuel Sinclair, and daughter, Mary Sinclair.
Her will was probated Nov. 16, 1841.
