was philosophic and romantic, ready to lecture on reform or to weave together
such thoughts as might win for him the title of a poet. He loved that progress
that comes by a better education, and he loved also that progress of ideas
which comes through the sword. He was ready to teach kindly a little child
or to meet his foe with terrible force on the battlefield. Talented, original,
independent, brave, he was also affectionate and religious. He had some
faults, but far more virtues, and the deformity of the former fades from our
sight while we look upon the beauty of the latter, just as the spots upon the
sun are not remembered while we stand in the fields of June."

2$, 1840; m. July 25. 1S65, Kmii.v Brown, daughter of Samuel Brown of
Trenton, N. J., and d. at Hamilton. Nov. 14, 1883. He attended at the old
Miami University, where he graduated in 1859. He was a very precocious
child, and, like most such, of a delicate constitution ; for this reason he was
not allowed in school for several years, but nevertheless graduated at the age
of nineteen. After leaving the university he went to Minnesota with his
friend and classmate, ^^'hitelaw Reid, where he '' roughed it " for awhile. He
next went to Princeton Seminary. He went to Europe in 186 1 and again in
1862, in which year he was licensed to preach, and began at New Paris, Preble
Co., O., where he remained until the spring of 1863, when ill health compelled
him to make another trip abroad. He preached at times until 1S71, when he
accepted the chair of Greek in Miami University. In 1873 he took the chair
of Modern Languages and Literature in the Ohio State L^niversity, where he
remained till 1881. That winter he spent in Florida, hoping to regain his
health, but in vain, for he came back without improvement, and soon died.

His mind, so philosophical in his earlier years, later took a turn toward liv-
ing nature, and one passion with him was botany. His preaching was hardly
up to the standard of orthodoxy adopted by his Presbyterian congregations,
and as he could not conscientiously preach according to the teachings of that
body he gradually ceased. He was a man of great industry, but his work was
never temperately done ; it was performed in such a way and at such a time
that stronger corjstitntions than his would have broken down.

6. Dr. Daniel Millikin-^ (6), fourth son of John^ (3), b. in Hamilton, O., Apr.
17. 1845; 111- Oct. 9. 1866, Amanda Hunter, daughter of William and Anna
(Jeneper) Hunter. His early life was spent on the farm and at the country
and public schools of his native town. He graduated from the high school
in 1862-3. and in 1863-4 he attended the Sheffield School at Yale, giving at-
tention mostly to chemistry. With his young wife he began housekeeping on
his father's farm in 1866, and remained nine years, doing outdoor work and
studying. During the summer of 1873, the year of the Greeley campaign,
while on a visit to Minneapolis, he contributed some editorials to the Minne-
apolis Times, a paper devoted to Horace Greeley, and edited by Mr. Plinny
Bartlett, formerly of Hamilton, O. The journalistic fever was now very
strong on him ; life on the farm hardly offered the opportunities he desired,
and he sought a larger sphere. Finally he devoted his time to the .study of
medicine, and attended Miami Medical College, from which he graduated in
1875. He has since been actively engaged in practice in Hamilton. O.
From 1886 to 1893 ^e filled the chair of "Chemistry, ^Medical Jurisprudence,


and Materia Medica and Therapeutics," in Miami Medical College. In 1893
he resigned from the faculty because he could not spend the time in Cincinnati
necessar}' for his studies.

Dr. Millikin has been a prolific writer on pedagogics, especially on physi-
ological lines. On several occasions he has delivered addresses in neighbor-
ing counties, on that and kindred subjects. He contributed the sketch of
Butler County in " Butler County Artwork," a book recently issued in Chi-
cago. He also wrote an article for the '' Centennial Souvenir Book of Hamil-
ton,'' on the literary men of the city, not published in 1S94. His many papers
on medical subjects are made doubly attractive by his rare literary style. He
was, when this sketch was written (1894), the senior physician in Hamilton
engaged in active practice. There were four children, named as follows :

I. Dr. Mark Millikin**, b. Mar. 23, 1868, at Fairfield, O. ; m. June 29,
