Biography of Jacob Millikin
Madison County, Ohio Biographies





JACOB MILLIKIN, retired farmer, P. 0. Plain City, was born in Washington County, Penn., October 11, 1809. He is a son of James and Elizabeth (Cook) Millikin, natives of Pennsylvania, of Scotch Irish descent. They emigrated to Ohio in 1830, and settled in Canaan Township, where his father purchased 1,500 acres of land for 75 cents per acre. He was a surveyor, and died in 1870. Our subject received only such education as could be acquired in the district schools, but, by dint of hard study, he succeeded in laying by a good store of information. His father had a family of nine children, viz., Samuel, deceased; Martha, wife of James Boyd; Daniel; John; Jacob; Elizabeth, wife of Henry Alder; Ann, wife of Solomon Cary; James, a retired farmer, and Andrew. Jacob was married in 1835, to Sarah A. Carey, a daughter of Abijah Carey; she was born where they now live in 1813. They have two children, William and Sarah. Mr. Millikin owns 500 acres of land. He is a Democrat, but has never aspired to official honor of any kind.
