University, Ada, O. She was engaged in teaching several years in her native
town. She went to Ohio City in 1892, where she taught three years in the
eighth grade, when impaired health made cessation of teaching imperative.
Yicldinir to an inclination she had felt for vears — " because medicine is in the
Millikin blood, and must crop out occasionally " — she began the study of
medicine, graduating from the Ohio Medical University, Columbus, O.,
in 1898. Upon competitive examination she was appointed one of the resi-
dent physicians of the Protestant Hospital for the next year, but owing to the
financial difficulties of that institution was not allowed the privilege of the ser-
vice. Since 1899 she has been located in her native village, Ontario, O.,
where in the surrounding country she enjoys an extensive practice. Miss

3. Laura Millikin" (1), third daughter of William-^ (9), b. in Richland, O., Jan-
16, 187 I, like her sisters supplemented her preliminary education by attend"
ance at the Ohio Normal University at Ada, O., and continued the family
precedent by teaching with excellent success, and always near home. Though
possessed of ordinary good health, she found, if this w'as not to be sacrificed,
she must discontinue her professional work. She now resides with her
mother and sister at Ontario, O. She has for several years been county secre-
tary of the S. S. Association work. Has travelled extensively, and is an active
force in the community.

Oct. 4, 1867. His father and younger brother d. in 1870. He was left to the

CASSIUS BYRON MILLIKIN.
Demise of a Well Known and Promising Young Man.

Cassius Byron Millikin was b. Oct. 4, 1867, and departed this life, Nov. 26,
1896. aged 29 years, i month, and 23 days.

When quite young he began his studies in the district school. So great
was his mental quickness that he learned the tasks imposed upon him with
comparatively little effort. His temperament was active and joyous. His
parents were justly proud of the boy, who in youth gave such unusual promise
of a bright and honorable future. After pursuing his studies in the district
school for several years, he entered the Ohio Normal University at Ada, from
which institution he graduated in the Scientific Course with well-earned honors.
Turning his attention to the profession of teaching, he for several years took
rank as one of the most successful teachers in Madison Co., but the medical
profession was his choice, and having secured by his own labors the neces-
sary funds, he entered the Ohio Medical College, from which institution he
graduated, securing his diploma last spring. He was then the very picture of
health and bodily vigor, and gave promise of a long life of usefulness. But
inevitable death was hovering over him then, anxious to claim so fair a victim.
That dreaded disease, consumption, had taken hold on him, and his vitality was
slowly diminished. Unable to attend to the profession he adored, he went
South last spring in the hopes that the salubrious climate of western North
Carolina would alleviate his sufferings. For awhile temporary relief was
obtained, but it was not lasting, and in a few weeks he returned to the old
home that had witnessed his youthful triumphs, to die. He is dead, but his
rare qualities of mind and heart will remain as pleasant memories to those who
knew him well. He had a strong and abiding faith in the living God, and was
always a consistent Christian. At the age of thirteen he united with the
Bapti-st Church. He was a willing helper in the church, and was often the
only young man at the business meetings of the organization. It has been
truly said that in the final analysis of all things nothing remains but character.
In this instance what a rich and precious legacy this is to his family and
friends ! And as this life is but a trust to be executed and accounted for,
those who knew how well he performed his trust will hope that the account of
it which he is ready to render may secure him a home in another world of
brightness and of beauty, where he may dwell in one of those mansions that
are in our Father's House.

His widow is now living with her parents, Stephen and Anna Frances Gary.

2. John Willard Millikin" (13), second son of John^ (12), b. June 18, 1869,
