This family are tall, rawboned and of fair complexion. They are usually
freehearted and readv to relieve the distressed when able to do so. None
of them were slave owners. They were opposed to secession to a man, but
after the state had gone out of the Union, they embraced the cause of the
South and with characteristic bravery distinguished themselves on many
battle fields during the unfortunate fratracidal struggle.

In politics during Ante Uellum times the Mullikins were old line Whigs,
but after the war they were members of what was known as the *' Conser-
vative Party." As time wore on this gradually transformed itself into a
" Bourbon Democracy," a party so reckless and inconsistent in practices
that, today, few Millikens can be found in its ranks. Many of them, how-
ever, are affiliated with the Western or Populist movement.

Religiously, the Brunswick County Millikens have been Baptists and
Methodists.



Benjamin Milliken' (l), parent's names unknown, received a grant of land
in Brunswick Co., N. C, consisting of one hundred acres lying on and in-
cluding part of Juniper Creek, date Nov. 12, 1793. The following description
of the estate was w-ritten by William Scott Milliken Esq., a member of this
family, who is perfectly familiar with the locality. The Benjamin Milliken
estate consists of one hundred acres lying at the confluence of Juniper Creek
which has its rise far back to the eastward in the great "Green Swamp,"
and empties into the Waccaman river, a short distance below the old home-
stead. The river and creek forming the western and northern boundaries
of the estate, is crossed by the river road, a highway established by law. The
plantation is also crossed by a road owned by the Gardner i\: Lacy Lumber
company. The nearest town is the small hamlet called Excelsior, lying
two miles to the southward. The soil is a sandy formation, the surface gen-
erally level. The premises have been occupied continuously by the Milliken
family up to fifteen years ago, when by voluntary sale it passed into the
hands of a Mr. Inman who is now its owner. The following crops have been
produced on the land, to wit : corn, peas, sweet potatoes, rice, rye and to-
bacco, with fair success. Benjamin Milliken was twice m. The name of

his first wife is not certainly known, but she had a son, John Mil/ike?!,
who went to South CaroHna. This woman d. soon after the birth of her
child, and her husband m. Betsy Hargrove, by whom he had five sons and
one daughter, named Benjamin, Samuel, Andrew, Isaac, Hezekiah and Anna,
of whom with 2d generation.

Samuel Milliken (l), brother of the preceding, received a grant of land,
Nov. 12, 1793, the same clay on which Benjamin's was granted, consisting
of one hundred acres on the west side of Alligator Creek, two miles from
its mouth, which is a tributary of Juniper Creek. This land is part sandy
and part a stiff clay and well adapted to corn, potatoes, rye and tobacco.
The estate is crossed by a public highway known as the " Big Necke Road."
The scenery around this old homestead is very inviting in the springtime
when the woodland is joyous with the sweet notes of feathered songsters
so numerous in this section, the surface carpeted with verdant green, the at-
mosphere freighted with the aroma of a thousand wild flowers, the tinkling
of bells, the lowing of cows, the droning of honey-bees, all contributing
according to their order, to present an aspect truly pleasing to such as love
natural scenery ; but when the hoar-frost of grim winter comes the scene is
changed, the verdure disappears and all those features so much in evidence
in the spring and summer are banished and a dreary loneliness pervades the
neighborhood. Such was the chosen place of abode of one of the first Mil-
likens who settled in Brunswick Co., N. C. Samuel Milliken's wife's maiden
name is not known. He had issue : Satnuel, Alexander, Moses, Sai ah, Mary,
Betsey, Kate and Lydia. See 2d generation.

The name has been spelled in no less than three forms by branches of this
family, and the compiler of this volume is inclined to believe they were an
offshoot of the old Mullikin stock so early planted in Maryland, some of whom
are known to have used the name " Mullican." The records of John Millican
are found in an old bible now owned by his descendants, and his children's
surnames are spelled the same; but many of their posterity spell the name
"Milligan." The derivation of this family is traced, according to tradition, to
Scotland. The records are incomplete,but such as have been found will appear.

James Milligan said to have come from Scotland, was early settled in Cecil
Co., Md., where he owned lands. He had several brothers who were lost
trace of about 1812. He removed to Steubenville, O., with wife Mary in
1800. In 180 1, sold lands in Cecil Co., Md., and appointed one David
Swezy to act as his agent in said county. He d. in Steubenville in 1802.
He left one or more children in Maryland. He executed a will Nov. 11,
1797, (now on file in Steubenville, Jefferson Co., O.) and on Apr. 30, 1802,
made a codicil thereto; will probated May 26, 1802. He gave son John
part of his farm and left ;^2oo in trust for Mary his wife. The tract of land
owned by this ancestor was called " Milligans Hill," and is between Aikin
and Leslie, on the Baltimore and Ohio railroad.
