John McMillan, who is a successful farmer of Marion county, was born March 24, 1867, in Clay township, this
county, a son of T. T. McMillan, a well known general merchant of Durham. Our subject grew to manhood in his native
township and received his education in the district schools. Upon reaching years of maturity he decided to make
agricultural pursuits his life work and is now the owner of one hundred and twenty three acres of fine land in
this county. He carries on general farming and stock raising and as his methods are progressive and his industry
untiring he is meeting with marked success.
Mr. McMillan was married on the 23d of January, 1895, to Miss Nora A. Parsons, a daughter of Handy and Easter Parsons.
Mr. McMillan gives his political allegiance to the republican party and is never remiss in any of the duties of
citizenship. He is an enthusiastic member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and finds the guiding rule of
his life in the teaching of that order, that men are brothers and that a fraternal spirit should govern their relations
with each other. His ability as an agriculturist is conceded by all and the number of his friends leaves no doubt
as to his attractive social qualities and the integrity of his character.
