Westport, N. Y., Apr. 29, 1826, and is still living, a bright, handsome old lady.
Her parents were John Parsons and Fanny (Skinner) Warren, the former
from Somersetshire, and the latter from Yorkshire, England. The family of
David Milligan had removed to near Pittsburg, Pa., and the mother, worn
out with the care of a large family and the hard work incident to the life of a
pioneer woman, died of consumption when Thomas was but two and a half
years of age. He grew up on the home farm to the age of fourteen years, a
timid, sensitive, proud boy. He then came to Waveland, Ind., to help his
brother John in a country store. When about sixteen years of age, after
much mental suffering and gloom, he came out into the clear light of Chris-
tian faith. He always felt that he owed much to the prayers of his mother,
and to the faithful labors of his pastor. Rev. John Thomson, of Waveland.
With the question of his soul's salvation settled, he determined to study for
the ministry, and entered the new school established fourteen miles away, by
cultivated Christian scholars from New England. This was Wabash College.
There Thomas was a most faithful student from 1833 to 1839, when he gradu-
ated in the second class that left the college, a class of four young men, all
of whom entered the ministry. These six years represent a period of great
self-denial, as the $400 patrimony could not cover much of the way. But his
thirst for knowledge was something unusual. He won a reputation for
scholarship, specially in the languages, of which he never tired. He con-
tinued his studies in Greek, Latiri and Hebrew till his death. After gradua-
tion he spent one year in Wabash College as tutor of Latin. He then entered
Lane Seminary, Cincinnati, for a three years' course in theology, under Dr.
Lyman Beecher, Dr. Calvin Stowe, etc. When the young minister was ready for
active service, he was presented with a fine thoroughbred horse, saddle, bridle
and saddle-bags, the gift of a wealthy Kentucky gentleman to Home Missions.
Mounted on " Zeno " Thomas Milligan traversed the marshes of northern
Indiana, preaching in schoolhouses, barns, private houses, and organizing
churches. For a while he was settled at Rochester, as first pastor of a church
that he organized.

In 1846 he removed to Green Castle, where he had been pastor a few
months. There he spent almost eight years. One year of this time he was
agent for the American Board, an ofiice that required laborious travel over
new country in Illinois and Indiana. In the course of his travels he visited
the county south of Green Castle, — Owen, — a county that had one old Presby-
terian Church, established in 1820. This was a country church, once strong
in every sense, but at this time depleted by large colonies that had gone from
it to Iowa and Texas. The "few sheep in the wilderness " appealed to this


sensitive, self-sacrilicin^ man, and in 1853 he settled in the little lu^ cabin
parsonage of Bethany, five miles from the liost-olhce and railway staticjn at
Gosport. He then had a young wife and three little children. In time a
new and comfortable home was built, land purchased, orchard and vineyard
set out. For years Thomas Milligan was the only I'resbyterian minister in
C)wen County, but he was a power, lie travelled tirelessly, carrying bibles,
tracts, and religious papers in his saddle-bags ; setting up family altars, per-
suading parents to educate their children — even taking the children home
with him that he might teach them — preaching the gospel of the kingdom
wherever men would hear him. Mow he labored and prayed, organized circles
of Bible study and the study of natural sciences, lectured, taught school, put
his children through college, wrote for the press, organized churches, kept a
happy home, carried on favorite studies, communed with nature, entertained
as a charming host, — this and much more would fill a volume. He was a
favorite with his alma mater, usually attended her commencement, and con-
tributed from his fund of ready wit and humor to her festive occasions, his
toasts being long remembered. In the eulog}' passed upon him at the time
of his death, by the president of Wabash College, he was called the best all-
round scholar that had then left the college. His children remember him as
a man of the highest and noblest ideals, of elevated conversation, of fine
nature, of deep but repressed affection, of intensest energ)% indomitable will,
full of uncomplaining self-sacrifice for the home and the cause of Christ.

So intense was his nature, that he wore himself out too soon, dying a few-
days before he was sixty, on Oct. 7, 1876. He lived such an elevated religious
life of consecrated service that Heaven would seem more natural to him than
earth. He had issue four children, all living, names with 4th generation.
