Charles Milliken' (1), whose parciu^" names arc ik-I known, lainc liuni ihc
Province of C'onnaught, Ireland, with a maiden sister named Jknnik, to \'ir-
ginia about the middle of the 17th century and settled near the present town
of Stanford. He married Ann Harbison, and before the breaking out of
the Revolution removed to Orange or Chatham County, North Carolina.
Tradition is again at fault. It has been assumed for many years by the recog-
nized authority on the history of this family that it was one Robert Milliken
who came from Ireland to Virginia, but it has been clearly proven by docu-
ments found in the archives of Orange and Chatham Counties in North Caro-
lina that no such person left his " footprints on the sands of time '' in that
state. It was Charles Milliken who was progenitor of this family, as a perusal
of the subjoined documents w ill show.

Charles Milliken's Indenture.

This indenture made the fifth day of October in the year of our Lord One
Thousand Seven Hundred and Sixty-nine, between James George and Judith
George of the County of Orange and Province of North Carolina of the one

in presence of us —

John Stewart, Joseph Fooshee.

Chatham County, Aug. 8, 1772.

The foregoing instrument shows that this Charles Milliken — ^lilligan in
this instance was an error in spelling by the person who formulated the deed —
had purchased his land as early as 1769 and had cleared his plantation and
established his residence there, but did not get his title until 1772, three years
afterwards. This plantation was evidently in Orange County at the time of
his settlement, but in Chatham County through some changes of boundary,
when his deed was recorded.

Here Charles Milliken established his home, became a w^ealthy planter
and slaveholder ; here he had born to him five sons and a daughter, and here
he and his good wife went down to death. Four of the sons raised families in
Orange and Chatham Counties, but their descendants mostly removed to Ken-
tucky, Tennessee, Louisiana, and Texas, and became the progenitors of a
numerous posterity noted for their intelligence, force of character and moral
worth. Indeed, there are but few families that can produce record of so many
members who have been such successful pioneers and state-builders, and as
fully represented by three or four generations of conservative solid business
men and scholars as have cast a halo around this family name. Full of energy
and industry, far-seeing and prompt to seize upon opportunities, they have been
leading spirits in the communities where they domiciled. In the learned pro-
fessions their name was conspicuous.

The compiler has found some evidences of relationship between this and
other branches of the family early settled in North Carolina where they asso-
ciated as neighbors. Much that would be desirable concerning the family
history must be left under shadowy obscurity of vague tradition and the uncer-
tainty of enfeebled memories.

The sons of Charles Milliken were named, Robert, James, George, diaries,
and Qiiintin.

Will of Charles Milliken.

CHILDREN OF CHARLES AND ANN HARBISON.

1. Robert Milliken^ (1), eldest son of Charles^ (1). was b. in Virginia as early
as 1760. and removed with his parents to Orange Co., N. C, before the Revo-
lution. He is supposed to have lived on the homestead. His will, made Sept.
29, 1813. and probated at the November term of court that year, shows us
about the time of his death. To his wife, whose name was Jane, he gave one-
half of his plantation and one-third of his w/7/ during her life; to his son /<?////,
50 acres of land; to his son Charles, 5 shillings; to his 'iow Jesse, 100 dollars;
to his son Robert, one-half of his plantation and half of his mill after the death
of his mother ; to his son William, one-half of the plantation and half of the
mill after the mother's death. His wife, Jane Milliken, and sons Robert and
William, were appointed e.xecutors. Witnesses were Joel Strong and William
Moore. No description of his lands. The names of the sons — Robert, John,
Charles, Jesse and William — correspond with the family tradition, but the
daughter is not mentioned in the will and probably predeceased her father.
See 3d generation.

2. James Milliken- (1). second son of Charles^ (1), probably b. in Virginia,
settled in Orange Co., N. C, where he raised his family. He was a planter
and slaveholder. ^Llde his will Sept. 9, 1805. and it was probated at the



47G MILLIKENS OF ORANGE CO., NO. CAROLINA.

February term of court following. His death occurred between the two dates.
His wife Rachel and son Jesse named as executors. He gave his eldest son,
James, loo acres of land; to wife 500 acres of land during widowhood or life;
to his son E/ias 250 acres, and to his son George 250 acres. Witnesses of
will, William Moore and William Roberts. No description of the estate. His
wife's full maiden name was Rachel Kelly. There were several daughters
not mentioned in the will. See 3d generation.

3. Charles Milliken- (2), son of Charles^ (1), b. in Virginia, was brought up
in Orange or Chatham Co., N. C. But little has been learned concerning this
man. One tradition says he died in Jackson Co., Mo. He was interested in
Kentucky when the tide of migration to that country began to rise, as proved
by the public records. On April 25th, 181 1, there was surveyed for Charles
Milliken assignee of Jesse Morrow, the assignee of L. H. Cartright, assignee
of Justice Cartright, assignee of James Gallispie, 100 acres of land on the
waters of Red River, by virtue of an entry on part of a Livingstone County
Court Certificate No. 12 10 (giving plat and boundary). Also surveyed for
Charles Milliken, assignee of Presley N. O'Bannon, 40 acres of land on the
waters of Red River in Logan Co., Ky., of date July 22, 1818, on part of a
Kentucky Land Oflfice warrant, No. 24-32, granted to said O'Bannon for
50 acres. Also 10 acres surveyed to Charles Milliken, assignee of Presley
O'Bannon, July 28, 1818, on waters of Red River, same warrant first mentioned.
As evidence that none of these lands' were patented to Charles Milliken is the
fact that no lands were conveyed by him, and it is probable that the lands
were patented to George Milliken, his brother, who we know settled on
Red River in Logan Co., Ky. The late Erastus Milliken of Pleasant Point,
Tex., said Charles Milliken died in Missouri, and left issue, but we have not
found any trace of such.

4. George Milliken- (1), son of Charles^ (1), b. in Virginia, was carried by his
parents to Orange Co., N. C, when young ; m. Agness West,* who was b.
May 26, 1762, in Louisa Co., Va., and is said to have settled first in Buncombe
Co., N. C. He removed to Guilford Co., near Guilford C. H., N. C, where
he remained until their removal to Logan Co., Ky., in 1804 o^ 1805. The
records show that he acquired by purchase from Jesse McComb in 1809, one
hundred seventy-three acres of land on Red River. He made his will in Logan
Co., Ky., Dec. i, 1812, which was probated May 17, 1813. He devised for
life unto his wife Agness his plantation to be transmitted after her death to
his son George Milliken, Jr. That his estate comprised more land than was

* The West Family. The grandmother of Agness was an English lady belonging to a
family of wealth and rank. Here is a bit of romance. She had a lover who was objection-
able to her father because below her in family connections, or was not born with the " golden
spoon " in his mouth. He was sent into the army or carried off by a pressgang and seen no
more. She wrote many letters trying to find him, and, finally, ran away and came to New
York in her search. Her money failing, she found employment in a hotel. A voung mer-
chant from Virginia saw her, admired her refined appearance, made love to her, and, learning
her history, married her and took her to his Y'irginian home. After the death of her father
she got her portion of the estate.

Agness West had a brother Leonard. Their parents died in Virginia when they were
small children, and they were brought up by an aunt. Both came to Kentucky. Leonard
West married, settled in Simpson County, and raised a largf family. The sons weie Amos,
Fichihiif 'ciwl yaiiies. There were five daughters, William Milliken's wife being one of them.
James Milliken married another. Dr. Jesse Milliken's wife was also maiden-named West.



MILLIKENS OF DR.WGE CO., AV. CAKOL/AA. 177

purchased of McCoinb in 1809, is jjiovcd hy the fact thai liis son George
conveyed to John Boyd by sale in 1S25, two hundred and twelve acres on
Red River, reciting in the deed that this was the same tract devised to him by
his father, deceased, and that the survey to the same was made in the name
of Goodnight, assignee of Rollins. His sons bought and sold several tracts
of land on Red River.

William Crewdson, Ksq., oi Auburn, Ry., who spent much of his youth in
the home of his grandmother, Agness (West) Milliken, informed the compiler
of this volume that she often told him that she was born in Virginia near the
North Carolina line ; that she was married w^hen onlv sixteen vears of aire ;
that she first settled in Buncombe Co., N. C, and afterwards removed to Guil-
ford Co., N. C. Her eldest child, fames, was born only eighteen months
before the surrender of Cornwallis at Vorktown. She heard the guns of the
battle at Guilford Court House, and that night' her house was filled with
wounded soldiers for her to care for.
