3. Hon. John Russell Millikan^ ( 5 ), eldest son of Alexander^ ( 2 ), b, in Jeffer-
son Co., Tenn., Apr. 27, 1814; m. Aug. 5, 1838, Martha Koons, b. near
Dalton, Wayne Co., Ind., Jan. 20, 182 1, being a daughter of George and
Mary (Eller) Koons, who removed from Ash Co., N. C, to Henry Co., Ind.,
about the year 18 16. She d. at Newcastle, Ind., June 25, 1900, in her 80th
year. John R. Millikan d. at the same place Sept. 12, 1895, aged 81 years.

His opportunities for an education in early life were very limited and
he grew to manhood on his father's farm. With a desire to improve his
condition and believing this could be better accomplished in a free state,
he went to Henry Co., Ind., in 1835, and settled one mile northwest of
Hillsboro. During the following winter he attended school, and subse-
quently taught several terms in the elementary branches with success. In
the winter of 1837, he visited his old home in Tenn., but soon returned to
Ind. During the summer he engaged in farming yet availed himself of
every opportunity to improve his mind. In 1842, he removed with his family
to Hancock Co., Ind. In 1845, he moved back to Henry Co., and pur-
chased a farm on Flatrock, where he added to his agricultural employment
a blacksmithing establishment, being something of an expert at this trade.

In 1853, he purchased antl removed to what may be called the Millikan
homestead, in Liberty Township, where for many years he successfully
managed his farming interest.s, adding to this pork packing. In 1854, he
was elected Justice of the Peace, and was subsequentlv re-elected serving

eisrht years. He was inanv times a delegate t(i slate crinventioiis of tlie
political party to which he l)el()n<^e(l. His political duties were |)erforiiie(l
with tidelity to his constituents without being a bitter partisan. His de-
cision and rulings when Justice of the Peace were remarkable for their firm-
ness and impartiality. In 186H, Mr. Millikan was elected by the Kejiub-
licans of Henry Co., as Representative in the Legislature of the state and
took his seat Jan 7, 1869. During this session he was an earnest and
active member, gave close attention to legislative proceedings and v(Ued
intelligently and conscientiously on all ]nil)]i(' issues. He was chairman of
the very important committee on roails, aiul introduced a bill auth(jrizing
the assessment of lands for the construction of plank, macadamized and
gravel highways. At the special .session of the Legislature, held the same
year, his bill became a law, and by virtue of it, hundretls of gravel roads
were constructed in the state. A special session of the Legislature was
called Apr. 10, 1869, at which Mr. Millikan voted for the Fifteenth Amend-
ment to the Constitution of the United States. He was always consistantly
opposed to the payment 01 the claim of the Morgan raid bill which was
pending during his service.

In 1S70 he was again elected as Representative from his county, and
during the session became an active and influential member, serving on the
committee on roads, canals and public e.xpenditures. I'his committee inves-
tigated the management of all the State Institutions. In 1873 the Citizens
State Bank of Newcastle was organized, and Mr. Millikan, who was a
stockholder in the institution, was elected its President and continued in
that position for many years. By industry and economy he amassed a com-
petency, and was always kind and charitable to the less fortunate. He was
always a warm friend of education and served many years as school trustee.
When the question of free schools was first agitated, and when the matter
was submitted to a vote of the people, he and two others were the only
persons in Liberty Township who voted for the free school system. He
was a firm believer in the Christian religion, and with his estimable wife,
was, since 1863, a consistent member of the Disciples church. He was
always an advocate of temperance and all moral reform, and in all the rela-
tions of life was upright and respected. He was fortunate in his business,
official and domestic life, and few were more deserving of success. He was
the father of eight children, two of whom have died, one being a sacrifice
on the altar of his country. See 5th generation for names and particulars.

S. Matthew Russell Millikan' (l), fourth son of Alexander' (2) and l-.liza-
beth Russell, h. 40 miles east of Knoxville, Jefferson Co., l"enn., Jan. 17,
1826; m. Jan. 1, 1S52, Ariminia Davis, b. JuneS, 1 .S;^^, dauf^hler of Aiiuilla
and Linnie Davis, early settlers of Henry Co., liul. lie was a lad eleven
years of age when his parents removed from I'enn. lo Henry Co., Ind.
Reared amid pioneer scenes on the home ])lace in 15lue River township, he
early became familiar with clearing ami developing a new farm, and as edu-
cational privileges were limited, he did what he could to obtain a knowl-
etlge of the elementary branches, attending during winter seasons schools
tauirht in a small log cabin near his home.

He remained with his father, assisting with the farm work, until his
25th year, when he began life for himself as a blacksmith, setting up his
shop a few miles north of Newcastle where he did a large and jirotitable
business in general blacksmithing, making plows, wagons, and doing repair
work for the contractor, DeGraff, one of the builders of the Cincinnati and
Chicago railroad, now an important division of the " Panhandle" system.

At the end of four years he disposed of his smithing business for six
hundred and forty dollars which he invested in one hundred and twenty
acres of land in Blue River township just as nature made it. By great in-
dustry he soon had a farm well improved, and as the years went by continued
to add to his possessions, until he became one of the largest owners of real
estate in his township.

Mr. Millikan has kept up with modern ideas of farming, and by care-
fully studying the nature of soils and their adaptability to the various crops,
has seldom failed to realize large returns for his expenditures and labor.

His home farm is a tine old place with a beautiful dwelling suggestive of
comfort, while the prime condition of all other improvements, together with
the well cultivated fields, bear evidence of the thrift and prosperity which
attend the owner's efforts as an enterprising and successful agriculturist.

Mr. Millikan has lived a useful life, protracted beyond that of a majority
of men and his character has never been assailed, his integrity being above
reproach. He posesses strong and positive traits, entertains decided opin-
ions upon all matters of political, religious or general character, and those
who know him best, bear testimony to his sterling qualities of head and
heart, and to his worth as a neighbor, friend and citizen. A useful factor in
the community and in every relation of his life, he sustains an enviable
reputation as an honest man. His deeds are the best line with which to
measure his life, and his works will in the future, constitute his most endur-
ing monument. He is a Democrat politically, and is strongly imbued with
the religious principles of the Society of Friends in which his ancestors
were strict members. There were eleven children in this family of whom
more wath 5th generation.

10. David Millikan' (2), fifth son of Alexander^ (2) and Elizabeth Russell,
b. in Jefferson Co., Tenn., Jan. 13, 1828, and came with his parents to In-
diana when ten years of age, in 1838. He m. Feb. 11, 1858, MARrnA A.
RuNVAN, daughter of Thomas and Mary Runyan, of Henry Co., Ind., b. in
July 1840, and brought up on a farm adjoining that of her husband.

Mr. Millikan enjoyed but few advantages for acquiring an education.
He assisted his father to clear and develop the homestead farm in Blue

River township — rolling logs and ploughing amongst stumps and roots with
an old fashioned right-hand plow. \\'hen about twenty-one years of age he
saw his first "double-shovel" plow, made by his brother, John R. Millikan,
and considered it to be one of the grandest improvements of the time. He
continued with his father, farming on shares, until his marriage. He had
bought a tract of land in Grant Co., Ind., which he sold, and purchased the
homestead farm on Flatrock in order to live in the neighborhood of his
brothers and sisters and support his father in his declining years. He has
lived on this farm and so improved it that it is one of the most pleasant
rural homes in the beautiful valley of Flatrock.

Mr. Millikan is an active member of the Democratic party of the old
Jacksonian and Jeffersonian stamp and firmly believes that the affairs of
this government will never be fairly, honestly and economically adminis-
tered, until that party assumes control of the executive and legislative branches
thereof. He enjoys the confidence of his party in a high degree, and has
often been honored by the members in various positions of responsibility.
During the last decade, few have been the county and state conventions to
which he has not been sent as a delegate.

He was elected one of the three trustees of Blue River township under
the new school law^ of 1854, although the Whig party was largely in the as-
cendency. As such trustee he helped locate all the school houses in the
township. For a second term in the same office he was opposed by a promi-
nent Whig and member of the Society of Friends, and defeated him by a
handsome majority, being then only 26 years of age.

Mrs. Millikan is a woman possessed of many virtues and Christian graces,
which have adorned and blessed the marriage relation and the home. She
is a consistent member of the Universalist Church, and her husband, though
not a communicant, does his share in supporting the church.

The fruits of this union were one daughter and two sons of whom more
with the 5th generation.

11. Eleanor T. Millikan' (5), sixth daughter of Alexander' (2), b. in Jeffer-
son Co., Tenn., Feb. 21, 1830; was m. to Thomas J. Bland and d. some-
