to avoid joining the Confederate army, his sympathy being with the l^nion
cause, he went to Indiana. His family, consisting of his wife and six chil-

Hamilton Co., Ind., and then, in 1872, he purchased the farm near Sheridan,
Ind., where he now ( 1902) resides. He served as a Justice of the Peace in
Randolph Co., N. C. for 15 years. Mr. Millikan is tall, erect, and muscular,
and well preserved for a man of his years. He was brought up in the

granted to his great-grandfather, William Millikan, who moved from Pennsyl-
vania to Rowan Co. in 1758. He lived in the old house that was built on
the same site of the one burned down by Colonel Fanning in 1779, until
1891, when he erected a new residence. He was deputy sheriff for thirteen
years ; afterwards elected by the people sheriff for the county for two years,
and during his term of office it became his unpleasant duty, in the execution
of the law in accordance with his oath, to hang a man who had been con-
victed for the murder of his wife. In consequence of the exercise of this
function of his office his Quaker bretheren disowned him. He was elected
to the State General Assembly as representative in 1888 and served with
honor. He was also a Justice of the Peace for Randolph Co. His residence
at Sophia, is seven miles from Ashboro, the county seat. Mr. Millikan has
been a useful public man and highly respected citizen. He is a lover of
liberty and rejoiced in the emancipation of the slaves by the sweep of Lin-
coln's pen. A high-minded, sturdy, uncompromising Republican, he stands
for all that is just. He has many valuable old family documents in his
possession, among them an early land plat drawn from a survey by William
Millikan. Kindly responding to my every request, he has furnished many
records and much interesting information for this book. See introduction.
