I. William W. Millikan' (25), eldest son of Allen* (2), b. Aug. 21, 1839, at
Thorntown, Ind. ; m. at Lafayette, Ind., Nov. 19, 1868, Sarah Brown, and
resides at Thorntown, Ind., where he is engaged in farming and harness
making, having succeeded to his father's business. The following clipping
from a local paper speaks for itself : " The oldest continued business in
Thorntown today, and far away by many years over the next oldest, un-
doubtedly is the Millikan Harness establishment, which is 65 years old this
month. It is remarkable in other ways in that its management has passed
only from father to son, retained the same name, and remained in the same
location, sixty-three years. Mr. Will. Millikan, the proprietor today, was
born in a cabin on the same lot where the store now stands. About that
time the shop in front was burned out but in less than a month, loyal citi-
zenship had the then young proprietor. Boss Millikan, securely established
again in a new building. This business is also remarkable in the changes
that such industry has undergone. Many years ago the main work was the
making of saddles, and such an establishment made and sold principally
saddles. Orders for buggy or carriage harness used to come very far apart
and were from a distinguished or wealthy citizen. Today it is harness, and
never a saddle. Then it was a saddlery, now a harness store. Inasmuch as
every business must rise or fall by its own merit or lack of it, such a career
speaks volumes for honesty and the straightforward business management
with which such establishment must necessarily have been conducted to
reach such a position in years." To them were b. five children named as
