On Friday, February 8th at 12.20 p. m., Jesse Millikan, a pioneer of '51,
died after a lingering illness at the residence of his niece, Miss Catherine
Millikan, at 10S6 Madison street.

The deceased was a native of Fayette county, (3hio, born Oct. 10, 1814.
He received what education the schools of that section afforded in those
pioneer days. His first labor was assisting his father at his water mill at
\\'ashington Court House, Fayette county. At the age of 26 he was united
in marriage to Miss Lydia Ann Metzger, and nine children blessed their
union. In 1844 he emigrated with his family in wagons to Indiana. Here
he became quite popular, being elected to the office of Justice of the Peace,
a position he held with credit for two terms, when he resigned in 1850. On
April 6, 185 1, in company with his family, he started for California. He
crossed the plains with ox teams and they were one hundred days on the
road. On their arrival they located in El Dorado county, afterwards going
to Amador county, where he was engaged in mining with fair success for
a period of ten years, when he purchased a large stock ranch at Sutter Creek,
which he conducted successfully until the death of his wife fifteen years ago.
He then disposed of his belongings in that section, and in 1895 he came
here, where he has since resided. He was a man of intellectual character
and was held in high esteem by all who knew him. In early days he was
strongly identified with the Whig party and after its termination he w-as a
staunch Republican. He was a prominent member of Liberty Lodge, No.
299, F. and A. M., of Santa Clara, and was also a member of Howard Chap-
ter, No. 14, Royal Arch Masons, of San Jose. Of his once large family but
one daughter and one son, Mrs. Melissa Smith of Lodi, San Joaquin county,
and Jesse Millikan of Vallejo, survive him. His funeral took place on Sun-
day afternoon at 2 o'clock. The services at the residence were conducted
by Rev. H. E. Milnes of the Methodist Episcopal church. A long line of
carriages followed the remains to the Santa Clara Cemetery, where the ser-
vices were under the auspices of the Masonic order. A large collection of
Horal tributes covered the mound. The pallbears were : S. H. Finley, L.
A. Offield, M. Beattie, W. E. Smith, K. Morrison and Chas. Johnson.

It was an unusuallv cold winter ami when they reached Nashville, they found
the streets covered with ice. The horses on which they r(Kle were "smooth

expecting every moment to see their horses fall, and were astonisheil to find
them so footfast. There were thirteen children in this family and all but
