'I'his family was descended from the same Scotch-Irish ancestry as many
others whose pedigrees are found in this voUime, and the prominent charac-
teristics developed by them are the same. These are said to be great con-
scientiousness, firmness blended with strong sympathies and emotions, habits
of industry, frugality, and liberality, a hatred of cant and hypocrisy, and
strong religious inclinations. They have manifested indifference to display or
notoriety, but are not averse to deserved merit and advancement. One who
is familiar with them has written : " 1 have never heard of one of them, old or
young, being charged with the least act of dishonesty, and I never knew that
one of the family was arrested or charged with a criminal offence." Illustra-
tions could be given of their acts of benevolence, philanthropy and helpfulness
to others almost unparalleled.

Robert Milliken^ (1), came from Londonderry, Ireland, about the year
iSoi, and settled in Huntingdon Co., Pennsylvania. He had married, and it
was reported that several sons were left in his native land who never came to
America. A younger brother came but was killed by the kick of a horse
soon after his arrival. In the course of three or four years Robert Milliken
removed to Mercer County, and settled two miles north of Sharon, on a farm,
where he remained until his death. This farm remains in the Milliken
family.

He brought over two certificates of character. One reads : " I do hereby
certify that I have known Robert Milliken these twelve years past, & he
always Behaved Soberly, Honestly and Industriously." This was dated at
Kille'roughan, County Londonderry, May 9, 1801. The second document
contained the following : " I do sartify that Robert Millikan was born &
allers Resided in the Congregation of Gobermore, parish of Killeroacha &
County of Londonderry, and is a Regular member and may be admitted into
the priveledges of any worshipping Society or Congregation. Sartified May
15, 1801, by Sam'l Sinclair."

Tradition claims that this Robert Milliken was only two or three genera-
tions removed from Scottish ancestors who left Scotland because of religious
persecution. These Millikens were of the staunch Covenanter stock and in-
tense haters of Romanists. Robert was married to Mary Semple in Mercer
Countv, and by this union four children were born, named as follows :

1. James Milliken^ (1), eldest son of Robert* (1), settled upon the farm where
he was b. and remained there during his long and useful life. He was a man
of great benevolence and sterling integrity who had the esteem of a wide cir-
cle of acquaintances, and when he d., in 1894, his funeral was attended by a
