land I purchased of John Roddock amounting to four hundred and twenty-
five dollars ; also $ioo in money." " To my son Samuel, the tract of land
whereon I now live for the support of my loving wife during her widow-
hood." He also gave Samuel all his live stock and farming tools and half
of the household furniture. The other half of the furniture was given to
his wife and at the end of her widowhood to be equally divided between
his live daughters. All of his other lands were to be sold by his executors
and the money arising therefrom and all notes and money on hand to be
equally divided between his wife and nine children.

He further bequeaths to his boy, Absolom Griffin, (probably a "bound"
boy) the tract of land purchased of Willam Frazer, called the Frazer place,
provided that in the event of Absolom's death without heirs, it should be
sold with the residue of the estate. He also gave to Rosanna Leech (prob-
ably a "bound" girl) one cow and calf.

That Samuel Millikan was actively engaged in the cause of emancipating
the slaves was shown by the veneration in which his name was held by
some negroes he had helped to free in North Carolina, and who had settled
in Ohio. When they met John Millikan (the old editor) and learned that
he was Samuel's grandson they could not prostrate themselves low enough
to adequately express their delight and gratitude.

He appointed his brother Benjamin, and sons Benjamin and Samuel,
his executors, and we know that they faithfully performed their duties, even
making a journey to Ohio and Indiana to pay the money due to the children
of his son John.

Samuel Millikan died in 1818, and his widow removed to Indiana with her
daughter Ann, the wife of Rev. Eleazer Bales, with whom she lived until
her death near Mooresville, Morgan Co., Ind. There were five sons and
five daughters of whom more with 3d generation. k ^5"U-

to Rowan Co., N. C. He m. Aug. 10, 1776, Eleanor Smith of Guilford
Co., N. C, and settled on a grant of 400 acres, not far distant from New
Salem, where he was employed as farmer, blacksmith, and land surveyor ;
and some old "land plats" and "field notes," still in the family, show that
he was a scientific man.

He crossed the Great Smokey mountains in 1792 and settled on a tract
of land in northwestern Tennessee, near Morriston, (three miles northwest)
and the site of his dwelling commanded a view of the Clinch mountains ten
miles north, and the great Smokey mountains forty miles south. The lands
are somewhat hilly, but overlook a fertile valley near at hand. There is
a cool spring of limestone water on the east and a rill winds down to mingle
with other spring-streams on their way to the great Holston river.

His house was built of large chestnut logs, hewed square, and was on the
ground plan 20x30 feet, two stories, with a la.rg^ cellar underneath. There
were also two porches of two stories on the north -nd south sides, and the
large chimneys were laid up with limestone rock. . spacious building of
one room, used for a kitchen and dJ ning-room, stood ntar the principal dwel-
ling. Some parts of this house h'lS stood the wear ai d tear of time more
than a hundred years, and may st 11 be seen.

Mr. Millikan was not known to have used the land surveyor's instruments
after his settlement in Tennessee, but he had a blacksmith's and gunsmith's
shop near his house, where he made farm implements and guns, and did
some work as a silversmith. A coin silver sleeve button matle by him is

4. Alexander Millikan- (1), fourth son of William^ (l), b. in Chester Co.,
Penn., in 1757 ; was an infant in arms when his parents removed to North
Carolina. He went to Lost Creek, Jefferson Co., Tenn., with the family of
his brother William and other relatives in 1792, and removed thence into
Georgia where he became a wealthy planter and the owner of many slaves.
He was m. but d. issueless. His Quaker kindred in North Carolina and
Tennessee did not hold him in fellowship because of his slave-holding, and
his name would have been lost to the family but for an old lady, now in her
94th year, his grandniece, who relates that this Alexander* wished to make
her father, who had been named for him, the present of slaves as a tangeable
expression of his regard, but Alexander Millikan, the namesake, refused to
become a slaveholder, and the offer was rejected. The compiler has made
diligent inquiry in many counties in Georgia, but has failed to find any de-
scendants or the name of his wife.

V-f. Sarah Millikan'- (1), daughter of William^ (1), b. in Chester Co., Penn.,
■^'as early as 1748-50, but the order of her birth as compared with the other
children has not been ascertained. She was m. according to the Quaker
formula at New Garden Monthly Meeting, Guilford Co., N. C, Jan. 28,
1 761, to John Mills, son of John and Rachel (Bates) Mills, and resided
in her state until. 1784, when, with her husband and children, she removed
to Lost Creek, now in Jefferson Co., Tenn. John Mills was a weaver by
trade, and had a mill on his farm for fulling his cloth. He left part of his
family at a Quaker settlement in then Greene Co., and with his oldest sons
built a cabin about one and a half miles east of the place where Lost Creek
sinks under Mahoney Hill. They cleared ten acres and planted for a crop.
William, a son, was hunter and housekeeper. Soon Mrs. Mills and her
younger children followed. Their nearest postoffice was Greenville, sixty
miles away. The first meetings of the Quakers in the Lost Creek settle-
ment were held at the cabin of John Mills. He d. at Lost Creek and was
buried in the graveyard by the Quaker meeting house. Mr. Mills was a

the letters being cut by her husband with a blacksmith's chisel. In
old age he lived with his daughter, Jane Jones, having moved to

Blair Family. This is a surname of great antiquity in Scotland, and ter-
ritorial in origin. The word Blair or Blar signifies a plain, clear of woods,
but as such localities were chosen for hostile encounters this word came to
signify a battlefield. The family of Blair or Blar in Scotland, has main-
tained a high position in that country since the 13th century. Numerous
branches of the same parent stock have become distinguished both in Great
Britain and America. Some of this name removed to Ireland at the Plan-
tation of Ulster and many of their descendants emigrated to the United
States long before the American Revolution. Some sat down alongside of
their Scotch-Irish neighbors with whom they had intermarried, and repre-
sentatives of their posterity have filled high official positions in the clerical,
legal, medical and political professions in New England. Others settled in
Pennsylvania and Ohio and their sons removed to the Carolinas and other
Southern and Western States.

Colbert Blair and Sarah Blair, his wife, migrated to North Carolina from
Pennsylvania about 1754-55 and settled in Burke county now Caldwell.
Colbert Blair was a Quaker and said to have been one of the followers of
William Penn, but went south with the great tide of Quaker migration in
the middle of the i8th century. He had four sons, Enos, John, Colbert,
and James. John Blair settled in Burke county and had issue ten sons and
four daughters, and their progeny is legion. Colbert Blair Jr. went west,
and is lost to history. James Blair was killed in the battle at Ramseur's
Mills in the Revolution. Enos Blair settled in Randolph Co., N. C, and m.
Hannah Millikan, daughter of William Millikan, and had issue seven sons
and four daughters whose names appear above. John Blair, son of Enos
and Hannah, married Elizabeth Tomlinson who was the daughter of Samuel
and wife Annie, who.se parents were Thomas English and wife Margaret
Flynn, who were married in England and setttled in Camden, S. C. Mar-
garet Flynn was first cousin of Lord Cornwallis. Colbert Blair's wife was
Sarah Morgan, a neice of the illustrious pioneer, Daniel Boone, who was
descended from George Boone from Devonshire, England. See note on the
Boone family.

Going back to John Blair, son of Enos and Hannah Millikan, who with
his wife Elizabeth Tomlinson lived on the head waters of the Little Uwarrie
in Randolph Co., N. C, we note that he was b. July 5, 1800 ; his wife was
b. Jan. 17, 1796. He d. July 12, 1859; wife d. June 30, 1862. These had



POSTERITY OF WII.l.IAM MUJJKAN. ,; j;,



several sons, amongst them Samuel, Solomon, Menjamin and Hon. Jcjseph
Addison IMair, a distinguished lawyer and writer of Ashhoro, \. C. who
says he had rather be a poet than a President.

Tradition says the Millikans and lUairs were related l)y intermarriages
in Ireland, and in I'ennsylnania, long before their removal to North Caro-
lina, but we have no record of such alliance. It will be seen that I'homas
Tomlinson, son of Samuel and .Annie ( Knglish) Toinlinson, married Mary
Millikan, daughter of Samuel and Ann ( Baldwin) Millikan ; also that Samuel
(". i;l;iir, son of John and Klizal)eth, married Mary, daughter of lienjarnin
and .Margaret Millikan, also that John \. Blair, son of John and Klizabelh,
married Mmily .V Millikan, daughter of Samuel and Mary .Millikan. Thus
the blood of the Blairs and Millikans ha.s comingled for generations, and
both currents arising from ancient fountain-heads in Scotland have flowed
across seas to Ireland and America until, today, thousands of descendants
are animated by its red, rushing, heroic qualities.

C, Dec. 6, 1785 ; m. Sept. 29, 1808, Miss Nancy Hurst, who became the
mother of fourteen children. He was carried from North Carolina to Ten-
nessee by his parents in 1795, when but ten years of age. Was in the war
of 1812. He was drafted in Jefferson Co., Tenn., Sept. 17, 1814, for six

As his widow, she applied May 11, 1878, for pension. Elihu Millikan grew
to manhood on his father's farm near Morristown and fought under Jack-
son at New Orleans. Of his religious experience little is known until he
appears as a Baptist minister. His father was a Quaker and his mother a
Calvinist. By searching the Scriptures soon after his conversion he em-
braced his mother's creed and united with the Baptist denomination. He
was supposed to have been baptised by Elder Isaac Burton, then pastor of
the " Bethel South " Baptist church, now known as the " Morristown First."
This church licensed him to "exercise a public gift," and by authority of
the same body he was ordained Sept. 18, 1825. He was pastor of Mossy
Creek church for seven years and of the Buffalo church in Granger Co.,
Tenn., nearly a quarter of a century, resigning Oct. 3, 1859, on account of
the infirmities of old age. At one meeting during this pastorate the church
had an accession, " by e;{perience and baptism " of ninety-nine members out
of ninety-nine who professed conversion. This was known as the " Routh-
Jones Meeting." He was frequently called into councils for the ordination
of ministers, the settlement of discords and recognition of new churches;
as well as to attend, everywhere, "sacramental," "protracted," and "camp-
meetings." In the records of the organization and recognition of the First
Baptist church of Knoxville, Tenn., Jan. 22, 1843, the name of Elihvi Milli-
kan appears.

Jesse Hill, aged 93, living near Mossy Creek, knew Elder Millikan as
far back as 1828, and said : " He was the principal preacher in this region
of country; was a missionary and an able man." William Haynes said:
" Brother Millikan was a strong doctrinal preacher and was successful in
revival meetings. He had a good influence in the community. People had
confidence in him and he built up the Baptist cause." Uncle Sammie West
said, speaking of Elder Millikan s wonderful voice: "I heard him preach-
ing one night from the Buffalo church to my house, a distance of two miles,
air course."

He was fervent and effective in prayer and devoted to the old songs
of Zion. It was his uniform practise to sing before the final benediction :
