D. 800-A. D. 1907; containing names of thirty thousand persons, with copious notes on online by G.T. Ridlon (Gideon Tibbetts Ridlon):  "Mortimer Delville MILLIKEN was born on 11 May 1805 in Peterboro, NH. He died on 5 Feb 1900 in Clarendon, Orleans County, New York. He early entered the store of A. Haskins as clerk, where he remained until his majority. He was soon after appointed executor of the estate of an uncle which made it necessary to go to Georgia, where he disposed of the "Woodbine Plantation". What he saw while in the south made him a strong anti-slavery man. After his return to the north he became a partner in a large store in Keene. He decided in 1840, to remove to the then "far west", and drove with a horse and chaise 400 miles and took up land in Clarendon, N.Y. and that was his home until his death. Mr. Milliken was a man of sterling integrity, energetic in business, of a kindly and geniel disposition, so that he was respected and beloved by all who knew him. On account of curtain doctrinal beliefs he never united with any church, but was a devout student of the Bible, a strict observer of the sabbath, and one who sought reverently to do the will of God. Politically, he was a strong Republican, always taking active interest in the success of the party. For 2 years in 1861 and 62 he was supervisor of Clarendon. He was under the care of his son George, who always lived on the homestead, and from him received the most dutiful attention. The funeral was attended by a large circle of relatives friends and neighbors, who by their presence and kindly words, testified to the esteem they held the departed. His place of birth could have been Keene, NH."

This is a beautiful old photo of a large rock taken on a summer day in Clarendon, Western NYS. Did Mortimer Milliken name this family property near Clarendon "Woodbine Plantation" after his family's actual Civil War era southern plantation mentioned in the history of Milliken family book above? We do not know the answer to this mystery, do you? This old piece has been in our collection for 20 years and was found in Canandaigua, Ontario County, New York. A beautiful piece. Millikan is an alternative spelling of this surname.
